I made a rubber bladder out of water balloons for a modification I'm doing. Do they make really small tubing clamps?

That will hopefully be enough... I'll have to find the smallest clamp I can.

What sort of balloons are you using that are less than a 1/4" in diameter?

Edit: Oops

Where can I find an affordable motorized pump on a site such as mcmaster? (I'm planning on building a homemade Scorpion)

My unassembled CPS 2700 came today. But somehow the pump cap is stuck on even though all the insides are out of the shell. Before I try to pry it off, is there a simple way to remove it?

Seriously, they are the best tool for the job.

I actually already got it off. It was easy - I just pushed a flathead screwdriver under it in a few different places and it popped off.

That remote control car from call of duty: black ops.
Yea, but it would be really heavy. You would need a gas powered car.

I'm sure I once saw an RC water gun car in a pawn shop once. Or maybe it was foam dart gun...

Is there a better way to attach a PC other than vertical?

Yes; horizontal, with the pressure directly facing the nozzle. For elastic based pressure chambers, this is the common design. For air pressure it's more complicated. Standard air pressure chambers with no dividing mechanism between the air and water are the fastest, cheapest, and easiest to work with than other air pressure systems. (Easier to pre-pressurize.) They are also severely limited in what angle the blaster can be held before firing, and must be positioned vertically unless you want to blast mist at your opponents. There are several ways to separate the air and water, such as by using a balloon (the XPS mod) or a piston (many homemades and aqua masters prechargers).
