For the highest ROF:
1) Keep the spring relatively light. A lighter spring is easier for the motor to pull.
2) High speed gears and a high speed motor.
3) Lipo batteries (even without the above upgrades, Lipos can turn your gun into a beast).
Okay thanks, my spring is relatively light i assume, it shoots roughly 320 fps stock. Which come to think of it is great, i don't mind at all. Thanks for the advice, i'll look into lipo batteries, but i know they put a lot of stress on the guns mechbox. I'll also find parts that can control all the that power.
