Title: Newfangled Lectrics
Post by: Mzzkc on August 13, 2015, 10:35:58 PM
So I just cracked open my shiny new Modulus to do a half-ass, super-lame thermistor twist mod like you can do with the stryfe, but the wiring is quite a bit different from what I was expecting. I kinda sorta want to get my IMRs working reasonably well in this thing, but my knowledge of nerf modifications is relegated to the olden days where we just had to worry about coefficients of friction, plunger seals, reinforcements to handle stupidly powerful springs and the like. The trickiest thing I've ever done with electronics is wiring up an old barricade to activate on trigger pull--and that was using old speaker wire, e-tape, and other lameness.

I'm guessing I'll need a soldering iron for this, and probably some non-speaker wire, but I really have no clue how to begin sourcing this stuff.

I could probably get away with just using 2 IMRs and leaving everything else stock, but I'm guessing that'll do more harm than good in the long-run...

Any advice for an old-timer who has been putting off dealing with this whole circuit and motor thing 'cause fireflys are still great dammit!

Check out (

One of the best new mod tutorials for Flywheel blasters. To adapt it for IMRs, just wire it to the stock battery tray.
(My suggestion is to get into LiPo packs sooner, as they are much cheaper per cell than IMRs)

This too. (

All flywheel blasters are pretty simple.

I know that this site has the information I need, so I came to study with help with the introduction.
