Transfer node and pipes being slow?

    I have big issues with Transfer Node and pipes.
    They are so slow. Not that i can use an speed upgrade and make it push items into the node slot faster... It is slow in terms of not sending the stack of items from the node to the chest on my pipe line.

    It can take up to a minute before it decide to send it away.
    Like the search for the correct slot is being very very slow.

    Anything i can do?

    Do you mean it's slow as in lag prevents it from working, or you just want a faster way to transport items? If speed is really that big of a deal, you can use enderchests or tesseracts to send them instantly, or gold pipes to speed up the items...

    I am talking about this http://ftbwiki.org/Transfer_Nodes
    I have it connected to 1 chest and want to move the items from that chest to another.
    Now it pumps out 1 item and keeps it in the node storage for 1 min before it sends it out to the pipes.

    I want it to pump out faster and send to next chest in line faster.
    I am making a sorting system.
    And with current the chest i pump out from becomes full before the node can empty it.

    You know you can stack speed upgrades on top of each other (to I think 16) and they go as fast as hell max'd out.

    So you are saying speed upgrades do not only improve the speed of how fast the node is filling up but also how fast the node is sending out the item?

    The speed upgrade makes it cycle through the pipes faster. The transfer node individually checks each pipe in the network for a connected inventory each second or half-second (can't remember which off the top of my head). Each speed upgrade decreases the time between checks.

    Transfer pipes aren't meant for huge lines. The larger the network the longer it takes to cycle through the entire thing.
