2x Ninja 90ci/4500 psi
AKA 2 liter regulator
Redline Flexline

If I was buying from scratch now though I would get the redline Firebase regulator, they were not out when I got the one I have now.

maaaaan, a daytona FAL... that sounds like sex. Next time I'm around you better have that thing at a game.

Gents, any known issues putting a fusion engine in an Inokatsu MK43?

Yeah.... IMO they suck. Didn't like the hop chamber, didn't like the feeding mechanism, didn't like the box mag, and the mechbox has a well known fatal flaw; the bearing holes are not symmetrical causing faster than usual gear failure on a G&P =/

It runs well at ~20 RPS on a ~9.6V NiMh/equivelent LiPo though?

i just finished my ca polarstar 249 build as well and i ran it uo to 66 rps and then didn't bother to tweak it any more, you could prolly make out at 80rps if you really put some time into it. great range and after i shimmed the barrel to cut down on vibrations it was getting a much better grouping, mine is the spw as well they look so badass and since i run a large vert grip on mine i already removed the floppy bipod. i was so hoping to get it build before nightfall but they let me down. seeing as you guys have build two and i know of a couple 240 having been built as well one day there will be 10 of us fielding polarstar support guns. And it will be epic! who would dare asault our position with that kind of firepower,

o also for all you 249 gunners hustle paintball has 100/4500 gurdian tanks for 180, id buy the gurdian over the nija tank because since you are using a reg anyways the special features on the nija tanks are useless!

That thing is gonna be a beast! Now I want to get one too, I am finding the M240 a bit heavy to lug around all day :P
I cant wait to play with you guys again!
the nozzles are different length's as well, the 249 nozzell is shorter i believe than the m16. polarstar sells different length nozzles for different builds. there may be other small differences.

It actually states in the polarstar manual that they designed the v249 fusion engine to fit the ca 249, i don't know what if any differences there are between the various brands other than a slight variance in the mounting bracket for the a&K 249 over the ca ones

The G&P uses a completely standard V2 mechbox, with a standard M4 nozzle, AUG style hop chamber, the body is significantly tougher, and it uses a better feeding system for the box mag

My point was, instead of waiting for the CA249 fusion engine to come out, you could have had one using a regular V2 fusion engine, that's all.
I thought the CA249's FE was going to be more expensive too, but they're actually the same price. So if cost is you're only concern then the CA is definitely the better choice.

What special features?
My ninja tanks are pretty featureless. Air goes in, air comes out at 800 PSI.

I can't even find that tank anywhere...

Also, learn how to use the edit button.

You can shim the reg on the bottle to reduce output pressure so you can run a smaller secondary reg or something. Useless feature for what we're doing, but if it's a higher quality tank then no big deal.

ah, I thought that was just the pro tank reg.

oh well, the ninja tanks were still the highest recommended tanks I could find, cheaper than a lot of others too.
