While figuring out how to set my new C37 to 3 ball while retaining the 5 ball rule set, I noticed something that surprised me.

With six lugs (?) on the connector, the five side had only one wire while all six on the three side were wired.

For whatever reason I would have thought the opposite.

Does this suggest that at least on this game, 5 ball is the design default?

So then is truncation more efficient than augmentation in such a system?

In a bit over my head on this, so the language I am using may not be quite right.

Not sure I know the answer but its not really either...its just how it works and it makes sense. All the end of stroke switches on the ball count and any other mechanism that uses that are only triggered at ball 5- to stop early you need to connect a fee things together that otherwise would do so at ball 5.

Makes sense. Design the full feature and then back off.
