RBA V2 does not fit this bellcap - help, pls!
Works like a charm with ready-made resistance but RBA V2 does not fit (chimney is too long)!

Could anyone recommend a translucent/transparent bell cap that accepts the RBA as well ?

Thx!

Interesting!
So that proves the 2 Kanger sub minis I have are V1 then.

If you do find one away from here please let us know or perhaps make a request to FT to get them in...

Thx
(*~*) Was bored to death.. RIP :)

Strange. I have SKU 2516100 that has a RBA V2 and this bell cap works fine with it, I'm using it at the moment.

Are you sure you didn't buy the RBA plus or v2 for the full size tank on accident?

Yes, I bought this RBA V2 (SKU 2551300) and it clearly says "for Subtank Mini" (also looks exactly like the RBA base from SKU 2516100 which nerfologist mentioned), but on mine, the hole on top of rba base seems slightly smaller than on OCC, so the plastic chimney of bell cap does not fit in...

Weird... I think i'll buy another bell cap but wanted to make sure which one fits with RBA base (SKU 2551300)

Those clone RBA V2s do have smaller holes - I have thrown all 5 of mine away due to faults, poor QC and holes being too small.

They didn`t list my "bad" review either ;) lol

I also have the Sub Mini Styled that Nerf has - and that supplied RBA V2 head works fine too - the head included is not the same item as those individual RBA heads sold here.

This thread has examples of what`s wrong with some of them.

Johnny_ bought some and I think he said they were OK, but can`t recall if he tried the 3rd party pmma tanks - could be different stuff coming out of the same factory, it`s not unknown for them (the factories) to alter things mid run and not mention it.

Thanks Vaper.UK; that was pretty well hidden ;-D
(would actually make sense to start a new topic on the product page, to let people know. But am leaving on holidays very soon, so that won't be me! LOL)

And sorry to hear you had to bin 5 of them...

I'll probably just either stick to the "normal" tank that came with my subtank mini, or if I feel like, will try filing this stupid cover of the RBA base, so that the plastic chimney of bell cap fits in... Will report here, if I do it.

Have a great holiday wherever you`re off to.

I could have salvaged some parts from them, but couldn`t be bothered.

I just ordered some authentic V2 heads instead - they should be OK for the pmma tanks

Makes sense. I ordered SKU 2516100 the same time as a spare RBA head but due to re-stocking the order got split. The tank arrived after the RBA head. Out of the two RBA heads, both of which had problems I was able to make one functional one but the parts got mixed together and I didn't know where exactly the top with the smaller hole came from.

I ordered SKU 2515700 (See my review.), and the bell cap that came WITH it didn't fit in the RBA.It was so tight on the bell cap stem that I almost ripped the RDA barrel off on first dis-assembly. Saw that it was scoring the plastic. Had to remove the o-ring from the RBA cap and dremel it out---just a bit. Not a hard fix, but pretty janky.
