    What did you find to be the thread size on the 510 tube?

    Awesome thanks. I think I'm going to make something up similar to what you did. Brilliant idea.

    If I were to do it clean slate, I'd go 18 gauge(maybe 16?) for the disc. I happened to have 20 gauge from a mistake. It's 24 gauge for the contacts.

    I had to come back and look at this again. Why the two nuts on the 510?

    Eddie man, I appreciate you!
    Just having a laugh, To be honest I didn't think anyone would've been too interested in the project and It's pretty cool.
    It's fun to see the variations in the builds and you're doing some fine work yourself.
    You created the disco orca. It needs to be in your signature.

    Honestly, it's my favorite mod and I wouldn't have known about it otherwise. Not a big fan of box style mechs simply because it's wasted space IMHO. Yet in the case of the orca it couldn't get any more compact with the design despite being a box. Lightweight, tiny, and hits like an effing train without misfires.

    Built right; Best mech squonker under $100 and performs as well as much more expensive mods.

    I should have my Orca tomorrow. In the meantime I've been gathering as many little tips I can, especially for what to do with the 510 since the VT 510's are so long. Found this little trick from a member in a Facebook group. Actually works a treat and I had my VT modded in about 5 minutes. The first pic is one I got from him. It's a good comparison. Second pic is my modded VT. Basically shorten the insulator, shorten the pin and smooth the last 5 or so millmeters of thread and shave the locking nuts if you wish. Hope this helps some.

    I like your mod.
    Where can you get the kits?
    All I could find something on Facebook.
