modification log?

Do some of you carry a ''modification log''?
It would be usefull to have a database where we could see what mod/upgrad had what effect.
for exemple:
change: paint the cross of a TM 36c riffle from black to green
rof: no change
fps: no change
effective range: no change
accuracy : no change
noise: no change
battery life: no change

it's not rocket science.. things that affect all your listed points are all well documented, it seems like a rather extraneous thing to do. All you really need to do if you want to improve one or any or all of those things is to do a search 'how to increase rof' or 'how to get more accuracy' there's trusted sites out there with people getting good observed results, and there's people getting what they think are results... all part of the research, and in that process you educate yourself on how and why at the same time, which is far more important than being fed a parts list.
I futz with V2s, V3s and V6s. I could be wrong... but probably, most likely not, as far as I know.

Can I ask you a serious question? How much sand can you fit in your vagina?

This! Or MacGuyver, or Thunder Cactus, or read the forums, etc.

feel free to do a review on parts, methods, upgrades, and affect in the review section if you feel there is merit.

A log like that is useful for yourself if you have a dozen or so AEGs and pistols.

I keep notes from when I chrono, what BBs, and so on.

I mark scope and accessory locations. Number mags, and so on.

When I change parts I save the old ones I take off in the new packaging.

I print out exploded views from the net and make notes and save all the manuals that come with any airsoft part in one place.

All that is for me though, I don't share it since airsoft guns are inconsistent so something I've found might not work for another person.

Doing this would also get us a lot of negative reviews for internal parts from idiots that don't know what they're doing.

I've always wondered this. Most enthusiast forums have a section for worklogs where users post pictures and details of all the work that went into their masterpieces. So far, the most in-depth "worklog" I've seen on here are Turok's WE builds.

It would definitely cut down on a lot of newbies asking if this part or that part will work.

Everything that is worthwhile in doing in airsoft tech comes down to procedure and method, not cookbook recipes. There are endless permutations of part combinations/conditions/variables and each part is completely different in fitment from the next. I have seen G&P C8 receivers that slide together so tight that the paint scrapes off... and then other G&P C8 receivers that are so loose that the front body pin falls out (true story). Anyone who works with pistols and slides knows it is hard to database-ify this stuff.

Unless we are talking some seriously fabulous CNC technology and high precision manufacturing, I don't think I'm ever going to be able to tell people "buy this bevel gear, put 3 shims under it and 2 shims above it" and have that reduce their pinion-bevel woes.

The other thing is that databases like these fall out of date really really fast. ASC and other forums are graveyards of half-to-full decade old FAQs talking about brands and products that no longer exist... SHS's pistons have gone from amazing to crap to back to good in a single year. In addition, techniques go out of date pretty fast. Old ideas litter the forums all over the net and many don't make sense anymore.

To do well at this game you just need to keep your eyes open and ear to the ground. To the OP, if you care about this sort of stuff, I recommend signing up at airsoftmechanics.
