    I eyeballed this kit for a modification for a while and ended up buying one of the mods first. I have a kit on the way now for the planned modifications. The XPV 75C is a well built mod and shouldn't be beyond most builders abilities, actually I'd consider it a good place for a builder to start from just to have something that will last IMHO. The kit's reasonably priced, quality materials are supplied and few tools are needed. This is no Chinese zinc alloy mod and it is priced competitively with quite a few not built at nearly the same quality.

    The Trucker DNA250C 30Ml. Squonk

    That's a lot of cranking on a mill AMDtrucking! Or do you have auto feed? DRO? I just used an end mill to cut through an inch and a half thick 4 inch wide billet of 7075-T651, it got me thinking about this thread. I'm heading for the table saw next time! Working in a machine shop spoiled me!

    QP Designs Juggerknot Mini

    The year hasn't even come close to an end and the QP Designs Juggerknot mini has my vote for best top air flow single coil RTA of the year. Flawless performance on both TC and Replay. I've been using Vandy Vapes 316L MTL wire. It's best to tension wrap this wire by anchoring one and pulling plenty of tension while rolling your coil wrapping jig toward the anchored end of the wire. 4mm I.D., 5 spaced wraps wicked with Puffs pads cut to 12 to 13mm, skinned, fluffed and folded in the liquid channels, no comb out needed, just enough to peak out from the top of the side liquid inlets. Easy to build on and filling is a breeze with an OBS Engine styled fill port. If only I could find the right drip tip for me! I've ordered a second as the second production run will be shipping soon. Specs: 24mm Diameter Single coil No leaking Postless deck Pull up top fill Side installed screws (No coil twisting) Adjustable Top airflow Airflow stopper (No free spinning) New deck design (More airflow + Flavor) Triple channeled airflow to coils Airflow to coils (side,under,top) Signature 810 drip tip (Random color top) Glass 4.5ml bubble tank Glass 2ml tank (/Europe/TPD laws) Vape band with logo Flat head screws Hex grub screws Black O rings Accessory bag serial number Signature 810 drip tip(Removable bottom ring)

    LONG ribbon display?

    Stupid plastic parts anyway, maybe I'm done now. Slightly tricky little parts! Way better than original, easier opening and clicks shut as one would expect.

    SS 316L Temp Control Issues

    The stresses imparted into the metals during manufacturing and coil building can cause them to move after being heated, so yes there is potential for hot spots after lightly dry burning contact coils. I gave up contact coils with TC circuits long ago, good to hear you're on the right track now.

    SS 316L Temp Control Issues

    Have you tried replay mode? Stainless does what I call "settling in" even after the coils are lightly dry burned. The reason I asked about the replay mode is that the 75C will accommodate a stabilized vape even through this "settling in" process I've mentioned. The trick is to not take the mod out of replay once initially set, another lesson learned the hard way.

    Mirage battery consumption really bad

    Cold solder joint maybe?

    Reverse cell protection in parallel 2x18650

    Why not just three fuses? Color me simplistic. Ur two anyway, just depends on the configuration. Automotive resets come to mind although there are smaller alternatives.

    "replay" rumor mill's already turning

    Replay is absolutely outstanding! Evolv ups the game once again!

    LONG ribbon display?

    Tail of the tape. Broken latch copied from brass. Installed and looking crooked. Direction swap of the display. Pre-install. Modified Cisco 510. Escribage Done deal.

    Had to open the window a little but It's Alive!

    LONG ribbon display?

    Looks like another option offers itself so all the shenanigans with the display cables can be avoided, I'll just extend the recess in the housing for the display. Fingers crossed!

    LONG ribbon display?

    Over the course of a week or two I've been putting a DNA 60 into a Hana's V4 when I've had the time to tinker and I seem to have mounted the board up side down as the display is oriented the wrong way, it's showing the connection point to the glass through the mods window. To avoid lengthening the atomizer load wires and battery wires I'd much rather find a display with a much longer ribbon if possible. Would such a beast exist? This has already turned into an experience, the plastic clip to release the battery door was so well seated onto the brass part that makes electrical contact at the battery's negative its stem broke so I've milled a duplicate from brass. The screws were too short that came with the Cisco 510, this I found after turning a little height off the deck in order to have atomizers seat flat on top of the mod. And I didn't have a center drill so the intended 2.5mm threaded holes for the mounting of the 510 didn't align correctly so they got bored and the brass retention ring was used. My phone is not allowing me to upload pics to my picture host or I'd include some pictures. Any help with a long ribbon display would be much appreciated!
