    What exactly do I need to get my gun to be able to hold up to a 11.1 lipo? I know I'd need a mosfet for sure, also deans connectors, but other than that I'm not too sure what I'd need.

    Well lets see, all plastic piston will strip, gears will also strip. With a mosfet this will slow down the effect of it. Motor is complete crap. It has issues taking on a M120. Get a lonex red, metal tooth piston, and some nice 16:1 Lonex gears. Wire it to rear/crane stock. Put a aimpoint on it. Replace them plastic handguards with foot long handguards. The body is pretty sturdy so its fine being polymer. Then get a M16A3 front set to accommodate the foot long rails. DIY mods, TBB(6.03), fix stock wobble and you will have you one bad butt gun.

    16 gauge AWG Silicone-coated wiring is a good thing to have. It provides less resistance therefore a better trigger response. I'd also like to think 16 gauge wiring'll handle more amps too.

    Wouldn't I need a new cylinder for the M16A3 front?

    Also, if I wanted to pull a higher spring shouldn't I go with 18:1 or higher?

    18:1 would be good. 18:1 is normally stock gears. With a good enough motor you would be good with 16:1.

    What gear ratios do you think I should use if I were to get a M110 spring?

    Which motor? I'm not a tech. So I'm sorry I don't wanna give you any wrong info. You will have to wait for a tech to reply.

    Well, I was thinking about the lonex red as you said in your first post.

    Good choice. It can take a lot. That motor is a complete boss.

    Not trying to ruin anyone's day but you don't really NEED to upgrade your internals for a lipo, I run a 7.4v 2000MaH lipo on nothing but stock parts(before I upgraded for more of a CQB weapon) I had standard 18:1 Jg gears and the stock piston had no signs of wear and tear on it. Also you don't have to have a mosfet, it's just there to help protect trigger contacts, motor, and life span of your gun. I do have deans in my gun now but stock connectors work fine.

    You must have missed the part where he said '11.1v lipo'. There's quite a difference....

    OP, chech out Alex's post.

    Nope, I saw the "11.1v lipo" but there really isn't a HUGE difference, Me and my friend put our lipos next to each other( My 7.4v vs His 11.1v) and the only difference was that his gun shot a little bit faster....

    There's going to be a difference between a 7.4v and a 11.1v. There's a reason people compare a 7.4v to a 9.6v. If there was little difference between a 7.4v and a 11.1v, do you think there would be a 3.7 volt difference?

    From my experience, you'll need a MOSFET sooner than later if you want to run a 11.1v.

    I think I'm just going to keep my gun running a 9.6v. I'll just do all the essential DIY stuff like re-shim, re-grease, and correct AOE. I BARELY play Airsoft, so I'm not really looking to put too much money into it. Maybe get a new piston and piston head, but I'm not too sure.
