These are precision laser cut Sorbothane bumpers for airsoft gearboxes. These pads will greatly reduce the impact between the piston and cylinder.
The pads can also be used to correct your AOE (Angle of Engagement) between your sector gear and your piston- a critical mod for prolonging your piston lifespan.
Sorbo pads aren't a flashy upgrade, but they are a very important piece of a high-performance gearbox. Sorbo pads will do several things to help your gearbox perform at its peak. First, the pads absorb the shock of the cylinder smashing into the front of the gearbox. This is a primary cause of V2 gearbox cracking. While it can't be guaranteed that your gearbox will never crack, the pads will definitely reduce the stress your gearbox sees on every shot. They also help prevent piston head cracking.
Second, the pads can be used to correct your Angle of Engagement (AOE). The AOE is the angle at which your sector gear impacts your piston. If this angle is off, you will prematurely wear out your piston, and is a primary cause of stripped pistons in high-performance setups. Different thicknesses of pads that will correct your AOE by different amounts so you can get exactly what you need to make your gun perform perfectly. Finally, the pads make your gearbox quieter. If you're looking for stealth, the sorbo pads will greatly alleviate the banging noise caused by the piston slapping the front of the mechbox.

To install the pads, make sure the cylinder head is clean and free from oil or grease- otherwise the glue won't stick. Using a small amount of super glue or other suitable adhesive, apply a thin film either the cylinder head or sorbo pad. Do not apply too much or the glue won't cure properly, and the pad may come off during firing. Align the pad on the head and press firmly to stick the pad down. Let the assembly sit for at least 30 minutes for super glue to dry before reinstalling into your gun. Before you install, pull on the pad gently with your fingers. If the pad slides at all, the glue didn't stick right, so try again. If it seems to be stuck down well, then you should be good to go. Evike.com and Scatterplot cannot be held liable for pads that come off while firing, so if you don't feel comfortable installing the pad yourself, take it to a professional.
