Quoted from PinB:

One of the versions of the chrome wireform ramp is the same as the black wireform.
There are actually 3 different versions of the wireform launch ramp (pics attached below):
Version 1: Black wireform that goes over "R" ramp
Version 2: Chrome wireform that goes over "R" ramp
Version 3: Shorter chrome wireform that goes under "R" ramp (with modified VUK wireform)

Resurrecting this thread because its still pretty relevant to newer GNR owners who don't know about the 3 different versions and I also have a question regarding possibly combining 2 of the different versions together:

I am guessing the answer is NO, but has anyone ever successfully been able to combine a Version 3 VUK wireform with Version 1 or 2 "over the R" launch ramp wireform??? To my naked eye it looks like it MIGHT work but it also looks like it might not. It looks real close.

I currently have my Version 1 wireform adjusted to where the balls rarely get stuck anymore but it does still happen occasionally. I'm hesitant to pull out my current VUK wireform and try it because its so tedious getting readjusted again. Every time I've ever had to remove and reinstall in the past , it's a real pain in the a$$.

Quoted from Blackjacker:

What would be the point of replacing the v1 VUK wireform? You're getting balls stuck there, not the launch wireform?

Nah .... BUT when the version 1 VUK throws a ball back into the launch ramps corner I've occasionally seen the ball hit awkwardly and fall down to the bottom of the out hole kicker instead of proceeding thru the sharp left turn towards the playfield as its supposed to do. ESPECIALLY during multi ball when several balls are being thrown out of VUK AND launched and coming up ramp at the exact same time. Collisions easily happen and that will also push balls backward instead of forward . My theory is by rerouting the VUK the other direction I will have a much less chance of this happening as by combining both version I will have two separate paths for the launch and VUK.

I can pretty much launch balls all day via the outhole kicker without any issues of the ball making it up the ramp , My issue seems to come from the VUK throwing balls into launched balls simultaneously as I described already. Does that make sense?

Obviously switching to version 3 VUK AND the version 3 launch wire form is the best way to fix my problem, but I don't have one of those and honestly I really like the look and style of the black version 1 I have better anyway ..... I do have a version 3 VUK wire form and am just wondering if it would work.

This isn't really a big issue for me but it would be nice to never have to worry about it . Perhaps ill just tuck the spare ver 3 VUK away until I come across an under the R version 3 wireform, but that may take a long while =)

Quoted from wolfemaaan:

I just made a new back panel and lowered the habitrail hole per the bulletin

Yep.. did that too. Again this is not a major issue for me . Just wondering if it will work
