who wants it???

as most of you know i am selling most of my stuff and because i concider most of you my friends i have something to offer, i was thinking of holding a contest and the winner of it would be allowed to buy the Flamed 98 at a insanely low price one i'm sure you all can afford. i don't know the subject of the contest or the price of the gun and anyone that asks will be automatically disqualified from it. i don't even know what trinkets i will leave on the gun but the contest will be for a working gun.

what i need right now is to know how many would be interested in competing for the chance to purchase the gun? i want a good number of participants but if you post you want to compete you have to! and if just one person that says he wants to participate and dosent the whole thing is off, so if you aren't going to partisipate don't post!! the contest will be something reasonable for all of you to accomplish and will be very possible for all of you to do.

this topic will be left open for posting for 1 week. after that no one that hasen't posted in this thread will be allowed to participate. i just need a yes i will or no i won't. NO posting anything else when i tally this up at the end of the 1 week i don't want to have to sift through 3 pages of conversation to see who is competing. only one post per person please. one last thing, you must have at least 500 posts to participate, this will eliminate people from joining only for the contest. if you know one of us won't be on in the next week you better get ahold of them and let them know!!!!

questions will be allowed through PM's but no info about the contest topic or price will be given so don't ask thoes questions. i will be glad to answer all others.

SO WHO'S IN???

after going over the memberlist i realized there were 3 people that i would let participate but didn't have 500 posts, i basically wanted contributing members rather than people joining just to participate.....therefore the new minimum # of posts is 100

carbine.....your in

i guess i thought that everyone here that participated on a regular basis had 500 posts. sorry for the confusion

two more full days to get your name in
tigman250

last full day, tomarrow i plan to disclose the details. after that thread no one will be allowed in. right now we have seven....i would like to see ten participate. wait until you guys hear the price i want to ask for this thing!!! (hint it will be less than a case of decent paint! Shocked ) where can you get a fully upped Tippmann for that kind of money!!!

GET YOUR NAME IN!!
tigman250

upon viewing my first post in this thread i realized it was posted last Wed. and i said you would have a week to enter so in all fairness i am holding out until tomarrow to let any last minute entries in......i only counted eight, i hope to see ten so get the lead out and say I'M IN! i really think this is going to be a good contest!

this is how the gun will be received by the winner.


upgrades are
Super R/T
14" Excell barrel
Custom drop
Custom x-chamber
custom RVA
Custom front cocking

milling includes
sight rail
rear sight
fire/safe
filled cocking slot
filled warning
filled radius under tube
milled for CF

now this gun has been "battle tested" and been taken apart hundreds of times so the paint job is no longer a show stopper but is still respectable, it is missing a valve bolt (not stripped just lost it) and one of the body bolts, i also lost the front sight spring. i hope the guy that closed his field still has some parts or i will have to order them online but the gun WILL be complete when the winner gets it

OK got 8 contestants no one else will be allowed in after this post.

good luck fellas

here are the details of the contest, you will design a centerfeed for the flamed 98. don't try to build it yet but keep the building process in mind because you will have to produce one to receive the gun. you can do it however you want, it can bolt to the gun or use the original hinge and latch, you can use any material from metals, plastics or epoxies you could even modify the original feed neck if you want i don't care how you do it but i have to feel your idea and material choice will work.

i will be the sole judge and my decision is final. i will judge on many aspects some of wich are, creativity, function, looks and so on. i realise this is quite a big task but you are allowed to get help from anyone, in fact i want you to ask for help. you are welcome to run ideas past me i can't tell you if i like the idea but i will help out as much as possible. on the final day of design you will be asked to e-mail me with your idea with mabey some sketches and i will take some time to go over all entries and make my decision.

now if your name is one of the 8 listed above you HAVE to submit a design, if just one of you drop out you will ruin it for everyone else.....i don't think you want to be known as "that guy" Laughing

i know i didn't cover everything so i won't ask you to start working on it yet, i will give you to Fri to ask any questions you may have. please post all questions in this thread so everyone else can see them too. this will make it fair and will prevent me from having to answer the same question multiple times.

now this is where you guys that said no or backed out are going to be kicking yourself. for designing (and building{only the winner will have to build it}) the winning centerfeed you will be allowed to buy the flamed 98 for $0.00 Shocked that's right free! i will even cover shipping.

i am running late for work so ask alot of questions and i will cover more of the details later.

GOOD LUCK!!

I would but I know nothing about 98cs, heh.
RoboCop

Ha, that's funny. I was just about to PM you yesterday about if it came with a feedneck. Well, this isn't the contest I was looking for, but I will try not to be "that guy."
Smitty

So we just have to design it? Not actually build it? Do we just use the picture you have posted or do we just do it on a blank document. Thanks tig. I can't wait to get started. I wish we could start tomorrow. I have the day off.

Confused
RoboCop

Ok. so what we do is design a centerfeed. The person that wins will have to make it or atleast make a centerfeed, because the gun won't come with a feedneck. I think that is right.
abr5

This will be kinda hard w/o having the gun in front of you to see if your design would actually work on that gun. It makes it even harder cause i don't have a 98 c

That's exactally what I was thinking. Guess we'll have to give it our best though. I dont want to ruin the chances for someone.
carbinefreak

bwhahah... awesome tig... just... awesome.


now... since i live by an engineering school and used to go there... i will have to call upon my mechanical engineering friends with autocad to lend me a hand.
HS

Crap. I have no clue how this is gonna work.


/thatguy
RoboCop

Well, I got it all figured out. Now I hope everyone atleast comes up with an idea, good or bad. I'd like to see some unique designing though.
abr5

i have an idea, it is just hard to implement it without and dimensions of that gun, and no CAD software
Smitty

Carbine wins. That stinks. I have an idea, but not even photoshop. I'm screwed. So the winner has to actually make the feedneck? Or does everyone have to make it? Thinking
RoboCop

I have paint and I suck at it, so luckily I have a scanner to scan my drawing.
abr5

can we have some dimensions of parts of the gun, such as the feedneck hole currently, the space between that and the front site, and the width of the site rail?

Also, what happens if we win but have no means of producing our design due to lack of materials and tools?
carbinefreak

the hardest part i'm going to have is getting the dimensions... after that... even w/o cad... i think i could make a trip to ace and come up with something
tigman250

cmon guys, this is a free gun!! all you have to do is design a CF!!! you are all saying this isn't quite what i had in mind.....quit bitchin! this gun would probably be worth $150 easy and if that isn't worth some of your time scratching your head then don't partisipate! most of you are on spring break right now so you should be able to squeeze in some design time. no need for cad drawings and such right now i basically want you to decide what type of material you want to work with and how you plan to attach it to the gun. yes the winner is required to build a CF, i will send the winner the stock feedneck so it can be used for dimension purposes. once i am convinced it will fit the gun i will send the gun.

this isn't something that has to be built from scratch, you can buy a CF and modify it....or use the stock one and modify it. only restriction is you can't buy a CF made for a 98C.

keep the questions coming, i will try to fine tune the details by the weekend
RoboCop

I actually think it is really easy. The only difficult part will be creating it if I win, but I have time on my hands. I am ready to start. Cheers
tigman250

oh another thing drawings don't need to be done on cad, paint, or photoshop. just make a simple hand drawing and take a pic of it, i think most of you have a camera. and drawings don't need to be done now anayways, just when judging begins.
Smitty

Will you be the only judge? How long after the winner is announced does he have to send in the CF? What if the CF the winner makes doesn't work?
tigman250

yes just me, the winner will probably have a couple weeks to make the CF and if it dosen't work everyone on the forum gets to shoot you with 100 paintballs Shocked just kidding, failure is not an option here....it will work Cool
g36 monkey

o boy! something ive wanted to do for a while, but never had the gumption, design my own part.

ill try tig, it wont be too good because im not the brightest crayon in the box, but i will still try and color, i would do just about anything for another of your guns.
tigman250

well i think i have all the details thought out. i would like you guys to design for 1 week in this week i would like you to come up with some sketches and a rough idea what you will do to produce it, i'm not quite sure how to get the sketches to me they can be scanned or you may take a pic of the paper you drew it on and PM it to me or e-mail them, if anyone would like to e-mail just let me know via PM and i will get you my address. don't do cad drawings, i do have cad software but with all of the formats available who knows if they will read each other.....i just don't want the headache. if you don't have the means to get them to me via the net let me know i will get my address to you and we can do snail mail.

so you have 1 week to get your ideas together, after that i will need 1 week to do the judging at the end of wich i will announce the winner. i will send him the stock CF wich he can use for all the measurements he needs, then the winner will have 2 weeks to produce the centerfeed. when i am convinced the CF will fit and it is strong enough to do what it needs to do i will mail the gun!

in the event that the CF dosen't work or the winner can't build it i will then choose a runner up to build his version of the CF and he will receive the gun.

your design week will start when i get a post in this thread from all of you listed below confirming that all mentioned above is agreeable, any questions or comments get them in.

rember i am looking for conformation from these people,

Well, I'm not gonna ruin it for the other guys, but I'll get something to ya.

Reason being, I just got a great deal on some rebuild parts for my Mag which is my current project. Therefore, I dont want to have the flame 98c sitting around when someone could be using it to its potential.
tigman250

BUMP

waiting for four more replies........
pb125

Hmm. Do i still have to?

This is not at all what I had in mind, and i'm busier than ever right now.

I got another two weeks of school, baseball playoffs, and a job going.

Building something just isnt what I was expecting I guess, and I really don't have the time.

However, if it means that this competition gets shut down if I don't participate, I'll draw something up for you.
HS

This is gonna be tough because I've never used or held or screwed with a 98C before... but ok... I'll figure something out for you.
Smitty

Man this couldn't be a worse time. I've got camp in 10 days. I drew what I thought was a killer design, but I think someone threw it away! THumb down
RoboCop

Now we just need carbine freak and g36.
g36 monkey

.....i thought my phone had a hook up to the comp so i could put pics in it....but my dad told me it doesnt, im gonna try though.....my design isny very good, pretty close to the stock just sorta different, but i hope i can get it in.
tigman250

this is kinda pissing me off, some of you are just going to throw in a quick design as to not ruin it for anyone else and some of you i haven't even gotten a reply from yet. i was trying to do something nice for you guys and all i did was cause myself alot of grief. you all were prety excited about it until you found out you had to actually work for it....that's when i found out what type of peolpe you were. some of you are still excited and that's the type of guy i want to give this gun to, not the dude that's pissing and moaning about having to work a little bit to get a free gun.

so here are the new rules, if you don't want to participate, don't. no need for you to whaste your time (or mine) throwing together a half assed design just to have something to turn in.

if you want to participate, get your design to me in a week. i am opening up the contest to anyone who wants in, after all the people who joined and want out leave i fear there will only be a few left so if you want a shot at the flamed 98 design away.

GO

you have until Mon. the 31st to get your designs to me in one way or another, if you need my e-mail address let me know via PM.
abr5

cool, i will start working this monday.

hopefully i will be able to illustrate my design. could i include a little note kinda explaining it, cause it migth be hard to understand.
Smitty

I'm pretty busy with basketball and camp and vacation this month. If I can find my old design I'll send it. I might re-draw it. I really would love this gun, but it seems like I don't get to play much anymore. Whoever wins better take really good care of this gun and use it a ton.
abr5

use it a ton? I play strictly speedball, and have multiple guns for it. I would prolly give it to a friend looking to start paintball, or my dad. They will find better use of it than me

Ha ha, that's me.

When you told us we needed to build something, I was less concerned about the work involved as I was the fact that I had no idea what I was doing. Work is no problem for me, but work on something I've never dealt with is pretty tough. I understand that 99 percent of people have dealt with 98's in their paintball experience, but I have not. It was a very fair assignment you gave us, and if I get a good idea I'll send it in.

Thanks for the opportunity.

abr5

don't worry tig, i have a design all drawn out (but not to scale due to my lack of dimensions on 98 c's)

The only problem i can see is that i have absolutely no means of producing it. my only took is a dremel, and i would need a welder or something for this design. unless.... *goes back to drawing board*

after 8 of you said they wanted to participate i got 3 total only two of them out of the original 8.......you guys SUCK! seriously!

6 flags ftw. Which one are you going to? I was at magic mountain yesterday.

Lucky for me i can just go for the day and come back.
RoboCop

Actually six flags is just 20 minutes away, just I am going to spend the night at a cousins house for a night, then we are going out to my grandmother's farm, about 1 hour 45 minutes from me, and doing some work. Also, I will be playing paintball against my cousin in the woods at the farm.

It is 6 Flags Over Texas. Baiscally it was the first one. Has the runaway mine train which was the first tubular roller coaster, and also the shockwave which was the first roller coaster with two consecutive loops.
Roll Tide

Six Flags over Texas > *
pb125

Not really. As a "coaster enthusiast" , I've been to both over texas, and magic mountain, and over texas doesn't have a stand out ride that makes them known. Goliath is fun, but Magic mountain in L.A. has the same exact ride. We also have X, and tatsu, which make our park known. Six flags great adventure is known for kingda ka, and cedar point ohio is known for top thrill dragster and millenium force.

pwnt.

Also, you may have the ride with two consecutive loops, but we have revolution, the first ride with a loop. ftw.

well i have made my decision, this was harder than i thought 3 of you submited a design and all 3 were very good ideas, in fact 2 of them were very similar. this decision is final, in the event the winner can't build his design in the time allowed a runner up will be chosen to recieve the gun.

with all that said, congradulations TH1! you have 2 weeks from now to build your design. please post to confirm your reading this and your 2 weeks will begin.

thanks to RoboCop and abr5 for the time and effort you put into your designs, if you want to e-mail your addresses to and i will send you something for your efforts.

way to steal my idea lol
RoboCop

Congrats TH1.

It's a nice idea, which threads are you going to have for it.

I still like my idea. Mine goes with the flow of the gun.
Here it is

The flames would be metal attached to a metal ring that goes around the top of the feedneck to tighten the whole thing.

I would have had fun making it, but it wasn't my time to win, but atleast I get something from Tig himself.
I wish I could get an electric hopper Wink Wink

here is mine, alot like th1's, cept mine bolts in the back since i decided that i didn't like the look of the part going down the side.
