Scatterplot Sorbo Tapered for Lonex - V2/V3 - 3/16in - 70 Duro


These are laser cut sorbothane pads made by Scatterplot. These “Tapered” style pads are designed specifically for cylinder heads that have a tapered airflow inlets like those from Lonex. Their primary purpose is to decrease the shock load on the gearbox when the piston impacts the cylinder head. By reducing this load, the life of the gearbox shell can be increased and a stronger spring can be used without risking the gearbox shell cracking. Reducing the load is especially important on V2 gearboxes as they have a history of a weak design. They are 3/16" thick which is thicker than stock pads so it acts to correct AoE (angle of engagement). By correcting AoE it will decrease stress on the pickup tooth of the piston which greatly improves it's life since the pickup tooth is a known failure point. 3/16 is a good amount of AoE correction spacing for many parts combinations but some setups may need more like the 1/4in thick pads or additional pads stacked. AoE correction has the advantage of further increasing the durability of the piston since it doesn't get "wedged" upward. AoE correction must be done in conjunction with the removal of 2nd tooth and possibly part of the 3rd of the piston, or the use of a piston which comes like this. A side effect of cushioning the piston impact is that the impact sound is deadened to more of a thud than a smack. This of course makes the gun more stealthy. This sound change alone is why many people install sorbo pads.

Installation instructions: Remove the stock rubber cylinder head pad. Clean and roughen cylinder head and sorbo pad with a solvent and light sanding. Apply cyanoacrylate adhesive (super glue) to the cylinder head and sorbo and press together. To protect your sorbo please make sure the ports on your piston head are not sharp as this can damage the sorbo. You can optionally glue a protection bad like the neopads or some DIY method to the top of the sorbo to protect it further in high performance applications. There are also countless installation instructions on the Internet.
