    Ordered this baby today been waiting for it to get to Australia. I hear it leaves the OBS engine for dead. Ok we will see what this tank is like. Yup ordered the goldie.

    Look forward to reading what you think of this one, had considered trying it myself (I also would have got the gold lol)
    .
    From what I heard though it gets a whistle up if you put the coils up high, which is where you would expect to put them for better flavor production.
    To combat that of course you drop the coils down lower but in doing that you lose some flavor strength.

    While the OBS Engine V2 is a little harder to build on, it is also an improvement on the OBS Engine, particularly in the flavor department. I got one to try, then ordered another after the first few days of using it, I now have 2 that I use almost exclusively, while all my other tanks (including the my OBS Engines) are gathering dust.
    The one thing I really like about the V2 is that the coil placement is a no-brainer, it has to go in the correct place & there is very little room for adjustment up or down, which means a consistent result for flavor every build. This means that testing different types of coils for flavor production can be carried out with fewer variables, giving each type of coil an equal footing to stand on its own merits.

    I am very much looking forward to testing the rabbit. A newbie on this forum is having all sorts of problems with wicking his OBS. I for the love of money cannot figure out what his problem is. He complains of it working for a while then says it tastes like shit. I have never had this problem with the OBS. @Adam Hay I attach a video I found and maybe this will help him. Your comments welcome @Noe

    @Noe,
    Mate, the dead rabbit is all its cracked up to be and the flavour and performance is par excellence. The only con I can give it is the re assembly after building. You have to align the little notches before you screw it together otherwise juice goes everywhere lol. I made this mistake on my first build. Quite true it will whistle Dixie if you have the coils to high, but it is far easier to build on than the OBS V 2 I have but my Obs in my mod rack and it is now gathering dust with the other tanks I no longer use or use in an emergency and ordered a second dead rabbit.
    What truly amazed me was that the OBS is a juice hungry beast, with the Dead Rabbit and only using the small tank I got 200 puffs before a refill.
    At first I did not like the bit about unscrewing the top to fill, but, after a heavy night out with the boys and gals, and going to fill my OBS through the air hole:sick::hanged: I appreciate the removable cap of the dead rabbit. Highly recommend. My supplier is running out fast, and has ordered more @Adam Hay :sillygrin: I beat ya and got the last gold one in stock.

    Hmm, might have to get myself an early xmas prezzie & test it out. Still I prefer the OBS V2/V1 filling method over screw top lids, nothing to unscrew & drop on the floor is a win IMO.

    @Adam Hay the trick with the OBS, which it looks like you have discovered, is to not force the wicks into the wick slots. The wicks need to be packed into those holes slightly loose & be long enough to just rest on the very base of the tank (hard to see this but practice will teach you where to cut). If they are too long they will not wick as well & if they are too tight the juice will not be able to flow through the wick properly.
    Once you have it right though, it is easy to get right every time.
    Another thing that helps is using coils with a 3mm or 3.5mm inner diameter ( try 3mm first if you're having wicking issues & dry/burnt hits), any smaller than this & you will be needing to change the wicks more frequently. Peronally, I prefer 4mm inner dia. coils (when I can get away with using them) as this reduces wick maintenance even further, however I do not recommend this to inexperienced RBA builders, tollerancesbetween metal parts & coils when using coils this large is very tight & short circuits are not something you want.

    I agree with you there @Noe that the filling System of the Dead Rabbit is the only con I can give it.

    Having Vaped the Dead Rabbit tank now for over a week + with the wide bore drip tip and even narrowing down the air flow I foung it somewhat to airy for me. I inserted the 510 drip tip adaptor ring that came with the tank and inserted a 510 drip tip from another tank and the result was excellent. @Noe @Adam Hay.

    For higher wattages and bigger coil builds and clouds the wide bore drip tip may well suffice, however, for my build using only a 2.5 mm internal diameter jugganaught wire build and at 50 w and 0.22 ohm duel coil set up The rabbit and I are now happy bunnies. [​IMG]

    I don't like 810 DTs, if I wanted to suck on an exhaust pipe, there's a car outside.
    I always use 510 DTs, I have a particular type I use with all my atties now, after years of trying different style 510's. The most important fact is they have a 6mm inner bore, which is open enough for DL but semi restrictive also & allows for AFC on the atty to be effective in pulling liquid into the wicks.
    I prefer teflon over delrin for DT material & there are quite a few styles of teflon DTs around now, the ones I use though are a hybrid of teflon outser with stainless steel inner, giving me the best of both worlds.

    If a tank doesn't come with a 510 adapter or DT option, I'll check to see if it can use one, if not it's not even given a second glance.

    You and I are in total agreement @Noe especially about sucking an exhaust pipe. 810 DT's I absolutely have no use for. I vape for my pleasure and not to impress some chick.

    Decided against getting the dead rabbit, instead I'll be tryiung this one next : Wotofo Serpent Elevate RTA
    Single coil but with a very small chamber that will house a large coil, this should do nothing but produce flavor as there is very little "dead air" inside the barrel. The airflow path is virtually over the coils & up the chimney, without turbulence.
    The deck also looks very easy to build on & it has top airflow & top fill, with he airflow going top to bottom + sides to top. The way it works reminds me a lot of an RDA that I have but don't remember the name of & that was great for flavor too.
    Another feature is it doesntmatter if you wind a coil clockwise or anti, it has slots to capture the legs for both ways.

    Different strokes for different folks. Not into single mega coils myself.

    I usually prefer dual coils too but I watched MikeVapes review of that RTA & after seeing it I knew I wanted to try this thing out.
    I already have 2x Engine 2's, which are at least on par for flavor with the dead rabbit RTA ,or better, depending on which review you watch. So my next idea was to find something that could be "podlike", finding a subtank with all the features I wanted for that idea was possible but then I stumbled across the Wotofo Serpent Elevate RTA which I think will work just as well as a subtank for what I have in mind, perhaps better, with better flavor.
    I know it's not truely a pod but since I use mods with 3x 18650 almost exclusively, a dual 18650 mod + single coil RTA (making replacing coils easy) is going to be as close as I need it to be.

    And I'm sure you'll approve of my choice of mod for this project, the Aegis Legend :thumbup:

    The Serpent SMM is pretty good with the bottom airflow exiting out of the posts directly onto the coil, great flavour and easy build deck. I use it as a podlike tank but it delivers a lot more than a pod so you have to watch the mg's with the salts.

    The Serpent Elevate RTA is an improved Serpent SMM, with top AFC rather than bottom AFC & a reduced chamber for greater flavor :party:

    Much rather bottom airflow, never had a leak in the SMM.
    The flavor is very good the only con is the screw top refill but I am used to it now.
    The SMM is a quality piece for the price, I don't mind having to close the airflow when filling then turning it upside down before opening.
    Looks good on any mod, plenty of flavor.
