Budwin, surely your down post on my question was an accident.

#202 3 years ago

My wife was clicking around trying to figure out how to reply.
Definitely it was by accident, sorry....

Will you be making any more of the clear ramps. Just did a cpr play field in mine. This would top it off.

#206 2 years ago

After reading this thread and some others about the clear ramp, ramp decals, and movement of the traffic light, I got very excited about my high speed machine again. I just finished moving the light to the back corner. I also cut the ramp lip in half so it only covers the kicker section. It doesn't seem like the ball can fly off of the lower part of the ramp. Does anyone see a possible issue with this? What I really like now is the ball visibility which was compromised by the previous light/lip guard placement.

thanks to everyone who contributed to this thread. Sometimes small changes can really bring a game alive again.

Interesting indeed... I'm very interested in having one of those clear ramp if there any still available. Freeplay40 could you come back to me about this? Thanks!

Just finished off my space station with your ramp and got a High Speed delivered today, it's logical I need to put one of your ramps into this too! Are they still being made/have any left? Thanks

Has anyone seen a metal ramp for a high speed? I love the sound the ball makes sliding on metal. I think it would be an interesting link between High Speed and High Speed II. If you have seen one I'd love to see pictures or talk to the maker.

Please provide ordering instructions for the HS clear ramp.

Quoted from Jlescher19:

Ordering info is on the first page of this thread. The only thing I have added is a Molex extension harness ($8) for those that want to relocate the stop light to the left rear corner and I do not pre-drill for the stop light to be mounted on the ramp.

Did anyone have to modify their play fields to get it to fit? Seems like I need to make the step a little larger towards the inside of the step to get it to sit flat. I would also need to notch the ramp for the narrow plastic above the traffic signals and also where the ramp comes close to the right side if the cab?

Does anyone want to sell me your intact original black ramp you took out when you put the clear one in for a really great price?? I'm not usually one to be cheap but I've already put more into my old beat up HS that I should have and I'm probably going to sell it to make room for something else pretty soon.

If you're still making these - I'd be interested. I need a new ramp anyway as mine is cracked and considering LED'ing my VGC HS.
Please advise, a fellow Pinsider referred me to this post.

#218 1 year ago

Yes, I still make them and they are available.

#219 1 year ago

I have a new black ramp that I got before I found out about the clear ones.

The used the clear one and it definitely looks and performs the best.

But, if you need a new repo black one with clear cover for $65 shipped, send me a PM.

Hi Budwin. I would be interested in your black ramp if it is still available? I was going to pm you but I'm still a new user on here. Thanks

#221 1 year ago

Sorry, that sold a couple of months ago.

Quoted from prock:

I like the new location of the stop light. Too bad that flasher in the back left corner is in plain sight now through the ramp. Any ideas on how to conceal it? Perhaps a red dome attached to the backboard? Nice work Freeplay40!

This is what I did. Blue & red flasher caps from marco

Nice idea. They are prett bright with the clear ramp.

Looks good! Did you drill holes through the plastics and attach the flasher caps? I plan on doing the same thing with mine, but not sure where to mount the 2 flasher lamps

While I've had a clear ramp longer than anyone, I have the 2 flashers in the back disconnected. I did have a similar thought of domed flashers, but I envisioned mounting them through the back board.....like on F-14 Tomcat.

Yes, used a step drill. also removed risers off the plastic on the right back corner to close the large gap, allowed flasher cap to fit under ramp.

That’s exactly what I was planning on doing. Drilling 2 holes in the backboard, mounting the flasher lamps through the holes, then attaching the covers to the front like F-14. Seeing chynnalou‘s idea is making me reconsider.

I am mostly done wiring the bottom side of my cpr pf and will be hitting you up soon for one of your clear ramps!

Nice job! I like the fact that it looks very similar, actually factory, to the other 2 flashers that mount through the plastics near the hideouts. It’s also reversable by replacing the plastics. This is probably the route I’m going to go.

What is the led strip above it? Extra pf lighting or extra flashers?

The led strips are wired to the blue radar detectors with mini police light bars mounted on the freeway gates also, one side red, blue on the other. Opposite of the flasher caps.
