    From Death-Darts, to 30 Volt Vulcans, what do you think are the worst mods, preferably with writeups, of all time.

    Hopefully, this post can steer young modders away from bad mods, but please specify why the mod is bad, for example,

    This... is a Full auto, Clip fed, Barricade. It is simply too much work for the shoddy ranges of the barricade, and frankly, it looks horrible. I can see 2 batteries, copious amounts of electrical tape and hot glue, an Alpha Trooper and a Secret Strike. There is too much that can go wrong with this mod.

    I don't see how a 30V Vulcan is a bad mod, ONN did a 66V vulcan from memory and evryone thought it was great.

    The problem with 30 Volt Vulcans, is that 1st, the feed rate from the belt is terrible at high speeds, and can cause serious stress in the engines. 2nd, it is expensive, and you are better off modding a stampede than a vulcan. 3rd, after prolonged use, any Nerf engine that runs off of more than 30volts will A- Melt the plastic casing B- Burn out the Engines and render the blaster useless C- Will deafen the user

    i agree with jeo..

    there is really no such thing as a bad mod. if you have the idea, the cash and the know how, there is nothing stopping you from doing something.

    Mate, that's just not true at all.

    I don't mean to be rude (or I would have just said you're talking unadulterated crap), but you don't know what you're talking about.

    1st. The belt feed on a vulcan is great, and pretty much the only kind of feed you can run flat out.

    2nd. For the price of a 4mm buffer, some light teflon lube, 2 battery holders, 8 trustfires and an hour to remove the AR's, you're down about 25 bucks. You can add 10 more for one of Servulus's springs and it's game on.

    3rd. A. Crap and B. Even more crap. C. Harden up.

    I actually don't sell anything for the Vulcan except the buffer, but it's a fun mod to do, and cool to run flat out.

    I wouldn't bother with another 67v/different motor, I'd run the standard at 33v.

    One thing you said that was true (thank god) is that the Stampede is a "better" mod.

    Sure it's a better blaster to use practically, and my absolute favorite of the Nerf lineup.

    With either the Vulcan or Stampede, you can burn it out, jam it, etc.

    You need to be careful to lubricate, align and assemble the parts correctly or you will come unstuck.

    Everybody mods to their own tastes/needs.

    It seems a bit self centered to decide what's "good" and what's not.

    Oh funny
    The guy who did this claimed he was getting 118ft flat with nothing but the stock flywheels/motors powered by a single 9v. 118ft, that's 36m.

    Putting a 9v in a barricade has been done to death and everyeone gets the same ranges, about 50ft.

    I called him out on the BS ranges and got suspended from those forums for being mean.

    I don't see the need for 2 9v batteries unless it's powering some ancillary gear as well OR they are being run in parallel in an attempt to prevent voltage sag...
