    Sounds more like a MTL. Or a bunch of nonsense with air discs?
    Will that glass fit on anything else?

    I received one of those $20 GT3 clones and got constant leaking. Removed the bottom cup and it had some liquid. Put the rta aside and later watched a video on the assembly of the GT3. I noticed that there was an o-ring on the shaft inside that cup that mine was missing. I found one in the set provided that looked about right and put it on the shaft. Closed the cup and that was the end of my leaking problems. I think the factory just forgot that o-ring during assembly. I have used my GT3 for months and not had a single leak after that discovery.

    Which o-ring are your refering to Chodi?
    Here is the manual:
    http://shop.smokerstore.de/pdf/Taifun_GT_III_User_Manual.pdf
    Parts starts at page 13.
    Which number is the o-ring that was missing?

    I'm having a similar issue with my GT3 detailed in the previous page.

    Most likely the 5 x 1.5 mm one on the 510 insulator. (#8)
    The clones are shipping with a smaller one, about 5 x 1 mm.

    Thanks for reply.

    The o-ring was indeed smaller. But when I put a 5x1.5 mm o-ring the base won't screw all the way to deck.
    So I used a 3x1.5 mm o-ring which makes a better seal than the 5x1 mm but still screws all the way in.
    Any tips on building? I.D. of coil, the amount of cotton, etc.?

    My coils are 2.8 mm, wick is 23 mm long. Wick ends pointing downward need to rest against the 4 feed holes.
    I fluff the ends well with a pin also.

    If its 22mm tank with 26 mm length chimney chamber maybe ,

    I actually like it ive 2 skyine RTA setup one without an air disk one with
    Im not using it setup for mtl more a restricted DTL type,
    But its possible for all types, simple to close off top fill open up vape ,
    but so is the Cloudone V3

    Its nearly as good as the Fev V4 on Flavours

    I tend to like the in-between type like restriced DTL not too airy not to tight

    Thank you for the reply.

    I still can't prevent the liquid pooling in the base. It may be normal condensation or maybe something wrong with my build.Or maybe I'm creating an extra vacuum inside the tank with using the smallest air hole. But I don't think it's condensation since it only happens after half a tank.

    Here is the current build, SS316L 26 guage, ID 3mm, 7 wraps spaced with organic Japanese cotton.
    Also, I have airflow reducer installed with an ID of 1.5mm. Airflow ring is always at the smallest hole.

    Still a noob, but the GT3 is my fave RTA rite now... love that it's single coil. With the capacity it lasts all day for me. I've been using some fused claptons that came with some other kit (32/28g I think) ... anyone know what I'm doing wrong because I get a lot of spitback with this otherwise amazing RTA. I'm assuming it's my wicking ...

    Spit back can be tight wrapped coils or tightish packed wicking or too much free juice getting to the deck,
    Spaced builds tend to work well for me with nice secure but not tight wicking ,

    Other poster

    I dont get the condensation or such if i did i would check the wicking around juice holes entering the deck area maybe add a little extra small fluffy bits of cotton to help mop it up an slow the flow ,also try closing down juice flow a bit at a time , wide open can lead to a bit of a mess when wicked for optimal clouds , also try keep toking after releasing the fire button or releasing a little eariler , sometimes if you dont draw our all the condensed vaper it can run back down pooling a little in the bottom ,

    But Extra wick
    Closing Slightly jfc
    And releasing power earlier can help avoid the problems your having

    Bought Taifun GT 2 couple of months back, knowing full well the 3 was out. I had some feedback that the 2 is better in terms of MTL vaping and I have to say since I have purchased it I have loved every bit of it. It is smooth flavourful vape on all airflow options. I honestly never had a tank like that. No dry hits, not burn coils /unless the coil needs changing of course/ and the smoothness is something else.

    I ordered a Kayfun Prime too see how it compares, ofc I am sure it will be a lot more of a tighter draw...but the Taifun GT 2 has certainly impressed me.

    Although my TGT 3 is still my daily ADV and my Aromamizers are a top fav I have recently found a tank that also has awesome flavor and vapor production. It is not a rebuildable and I usually do not pay much attention to tanks that are not. The Tobeco is the first tank with drop in coils that I have given a second chance. Had a mini and bought the 25mm for black Friday.

    I feel very silly :(

    Needing to purchase some replacement orings for my TGT3 clones, found dwcraig's list - and his recommended sites (orings and more and oring store) and when I search for the sizes (ex. 17mm x 1mm size) nothing comes up, and those websites are INSANELY hard to navigate. Yes, I can not handle navigating those websites to purchase a list of orings. Anybody wanna point me in the right direction?
