    Hey so my friend wants to do a high speed build, and I told him to get shs gears, but he is thinking about getting angel custom high speed gears, I wasn't sure what is the best option to go with to get a gun around 40 rps. I recommended shs 16:1 with an shs poly carb piston with full metal rack, but he is still unsure. Any advice? Thanks.

    Those gears combined with an SHS high torque motor should hit that RPS goal on the spot, sounds good to me. Just remember to replace the bevel gear if it's a 2nd gen one.

    also if my friend does choose those angel custom gears what would be a good piston to use.

    If he's only getting gears and piston, then tell him good luck getting that thing to 40rps.
    He needs a motor, as they increase ROF the most from my experience.

    SHS 14 or 15 tooth piston. Make sure he doesn't forget to correct AoE.
