    I have recently purchased the P90 but i don't know what I should upgrade on it. I also heard they break easy. Is that true? Thanks all thoughts will help!:D

    They don't break that easily just make sure what ever you get is high quality and I would upgrade the motor and go to a lipo battery

    if you get the box mag, if you look up in its magwell, theres a little bar restricting you to using high caps. if you want to use midcaps so you dont sound like a maraca, take some plyers and just wiggle it back and forth until it comes out and vwah lah, you can use midcaps. thats what i did and my MAG brand midcaps feed flawlessly.

    also, id upgrade the piston, piston head, cylinder, cylinder head, motor and probably a good shim job. i have one and those are the things that broke after a very short time. i still love it though.

    Had a friend who owned one and it stripped the piston. Other than that it's a good gun, but you'll want to get your gearbox shimmed and keep a spare piston on hand.

    Used a friends this weekend in a game, pretty alright gun if you can get over the noise from the gearbox right beside your ear. I've never liked that.

    Cool beans guys. Yeah the gear box doesn't annoy me but I did just get a lipo battery so I'm counting on buying a new gear box! Haha

    Depends. They break easy if you drop a 11.1v LiPo when it's stock out of the box.

    If you use a 9.6v battery and lower, the gun will last a long time.

    Things to upgrade would be the piston and gears if anything. Cheap and easy to do.

    MOSFET is a must if you want it to last even longer. Once a v6 trigger assembly melts, it's another $30-45 to replace. And you'd need to install it correctly.

    Good gun to learn how to tech. Just make sure to not over tighten the rear screws that set the gearbox. Stripping them sucks.
