    Can you post a PIC of the build deck and what you currently have going there?

    Also give me some info on your build there. Coil sizes, coil types, resistance and wattage.

    RTA Dry hits can be a number of things. even a hidden little hotspot on the coil where everything else is done perfectly.

    I have found with this RTA (and most other dual RTA's) it likes for the wicks to be combed out quite a bit.

    Ok cool, so just a quick look I think you might have a bit to much cotton. However your running Claptons which I have found likes to randomly create little hot spots if you dont compress the hell out of them.

    My susgetion would be.
    1. Pull out the wicks and do a dry burn. check for really bright red lines on the coil... inside and outside. if you see any run your tweesers over the areas where you have hot spots (Do this after burning and not during).

    2. follow @lesvaches wicking guide. and like @Adephi said you can come out quite a bit of wicking. When you put the wick into the juice holes / guides you don't want to push the wick into the groves, just guide them and then a little temping to get all the fibres in. If you find yourself having to force them in, you have to much wick. also try to have a little gap between the fibre end and the bottom of the deck. so if you look at it from the side...

    If that makes sense... Doing that will ensure that even the fibres in the back can wick up a fresh flow of juice and will also stop them from vamping juice away from other fibres further up the line.

    another important thing with clapton. make sure there is absolutely no gap at either end of the coil where the wick leaves the coil. if there is a little gap between the coil and the wick it will create a dryburn sensation on those end.

    Step 1

    Coils close to build deck without touching the posts, I can clearly see your coils are to high the juice has a long way to travel, and bonus is the whistling will also go away

    Step 2
    Don't wick thick it should all most move freely in your coils, based on increased airflow you cannot wick that thick

    Sparkys tips on how to kill your already dead Rabbit:

    My first attempt went something like this:

    Mehhh it looks like a RTA wicks like a RTA even screws in like a RTA but guess what you would be dead wrong.

    Due to the high build deck it has a few secrets

    Coils too high it sounds like a asthma guy playing a fluit

    Coile medium hight it sounds when you stick your head out of a car window at 120km/ph

    Coils nice and close to the build deck sounds like when a girl whispers "let's go braai bby"

    Wicking you know everybody says size matters well not in this case

    Wick length just past the guide holes your wick will sogg into the juice well when saturated

    And when you wick don't think about the squeezing into a skinny Jean type of wick think more of getting into pajamas nice and loose wick not too tight and zero strain to get it out if you know what I'm saying
