blitzburgh99 Go into switch test and test the switches for the right ramp, specifically switch 76 "right ramp made". I noticed the car wasn't spinning on mine awhile back and tracked it back to a dead 76 switch. If its not (or intermittently) triggering during switch test the switch could be dying or you could have a loose wire connection somewhere else in the path.

Couple of more questions:

The balls are shooting off the rails into the middle of the playfield when multiball starts. Is this by design, or do I need to adjust the wire form somehow?

Software on my game is 0.6. What is the newest/best software to get?

No, something is wrong. The balls should exit the wire-form at the inlane. Might have to bend the angle of the wireform so they don't "jump the track"

I think he’s looking for the boards with the LEDs. If he doesn’t need the target housing/assembly, my game needs one. PM me if they don’t go to 27dnast.

#907 26 days ago

This game is humbling me! Still trying to figure the rules and game out, but I can’t keep a ball alive long enough to feel like I’ve accomplished anything. Love it!

I had the game setup super steep for the first few months... it was too much. It’s actually more fun around 6.5.... just more controllable.

I also made some tweaks/cleaned upper lanes/pops for more varied Lane and pop action. Radically boosted my enjoyment of the game.

#910 22 days ago

I am searching for an original printed Indy 500 Instruction card. Anyone have one in good condition that they'd part with?

Ahhh! Comet 2smd sunlights in GI. New target installed. Ready to see how fast this baby goes!!!!

Thanks! Here’s the four I’ve got. Once I dial in the I500, I’ll switch the WCS around with it so the games are in chronological order. I need get some 1smd bulbs for the WH2O and I500 for the backboxes. Getting too much reflection on glass right now.

All of them are amazingly solid games. Enjoy!

#915 16 days ago

Is the car in the back corner supposed to spin around every time you hit the right ramp? It works fine during car test but I can’t get it to spin during game play. Any help would be appreciated

I had the same problem with mine.. The switch right at the back of the ramp needed adjusting.

#917 16 days ago

Yes my car will spin on right ramp shot. First if you have a lousy game it won't spin at all. The car spins multi ball jackpot shot,
Pit stop shot for pit multi ball, lighted fast lanes shot.

Maybe more but that's it's so far.

#918 16 days ago

My car was spinning intermittently. The existing switch worked in test mode. I went ahead and just put a new switch in because I had one. When reassembling, I noticed that one of the screw holes is an oval shape and the other one is a circle. I assume the oval hole allows for adjusting the switch angle up and down so the ball can hit the switch correctly.

You might just want to adjust those screws and make sure they are snug so the switch assembly doesn’t change position from repeated hits. After all the work changing my switch, I think that’s all my game needed. But now I have peace of mind knowing I have a brand new switch and shouldn’t have to get back into that again anytime soon.

#919 15 days ago

Problem seems solved, adjusted the right ramp made switch and now she spins!

I'm working on some custom mods for a Nascar owner who wanted a couple of the icons from the Indianapolis Speedway (the tower and the pagoda). Got me wondering if any Indy 500 owners might be interested. I'm still working on the pagoda, but here is my rendition of the tower. The stats on it are from the 2019 Indy 500 race (200 is the final lap, 226 was the fastest lap, and the 33 positions were the final race outcome). The tower is 4.5" tall, so wasn't sure 1) if anyone would even be interested, and 2) if that size would fit at an appropriate place on the playfield. Plan is to use clear mounting tape for base, but I could print with a solid platform at the bottom if that would make it more secure.

I haven't set a price yet, as I need to see what I can come up with for the pagoda first. Anyway, thought I would get thoughts from Indy 500 owners.

0fd08c95eec0151fd60c4aa196b0f03ac749aca1.jpg Added 12 days ago:

Well, I finished the pagoda, but it is far too much effort for me to want to offer them for sale (over 30 pieces, 2 days of printing, over an hour of assembly, etc.) However, I will make the tower available for $25, including US shipping, and I will even custom the race results for a given year's race if you prefer (one shown is 2019).

If interested please PM me, and we'll work out all the details.

Wanted: I500 manual. The sites I looked at all show out of stock. Any leads appreciated.

When a ball is locked in the turbo and it spins slowly waiting for the second lock, it it normal for the ball to slide along the inside of turbo housing and make a scraping sound? I didn't play mine too much before I did a full tear down, but I don't remember hearing the light scraping sound it makes now. I had thought that it was the motor (and thus the impeller) was mounted slightly off center from the main housing. I spent some time adjusting it back to center, but the noise still persists. I am pretty sure the ball is rubbing on the inside lip of the housing as it goes around, but when I spin it by hand it doesn't rub. It almost seems like the centripetal force of it spinning is causing the ball to move out of it's resting hole. If this is true, then I would expect all games to behave the same. Except maybe because I cleaned and relubed the gearbox, the "slow" speed is now spinning faster?

I have tried to raise and lower the impeller to no avail. The turbo works perfectly otherwise.

#923 11 days ago

After a little experimentation, I found that indeed this is my issue. I got glued a little magnet on the impeller to better hold the ball in place while it is spinning at the slow speed. It solved my scraping problem.

Is there a need for replacement impellers? I am thinking about 3d printing an improved design to help keep the ball in place instead of adding the magnets.

Looks like my game is set up around 7.5 degrees and it is brutal! After a good 30 minutes of playing, i think I said “dammit! Ok last game” at least 6-7 times before I actually shut it down. Is I500 the most sadistic game out there? Lol

And that's why I love it lol!

I originally had my I500 setup aggressively steep. I lowered it down, tho... this is one of those games that’s more fun at a less aggressive pitch. At least in my opinion. Still an ass kicker no matter what.

Made it to position #1 today, but the victory lap didn’t light up. I’m running code 0.6. Was this an early software bug?

#930 1 day ago

Did you get into 1st place using the 10 passes from Gasoline Alley? If so, that's a known bug.

#931 1 day ago

Congrats, I don't know never done it. I won the race because I started all the modes. I did this several times.

BTW, I thought 3rd gasoline alley shot gave you 15 positions?

On a side note no idea why you would select points given the choice.

I'm sure you're right. I don't play GA anymore.

#933 1 day ago

I did get the 15 spots from Gasoline Alley

#934 1 day ago

Wait. If you collect those positions from GA, you can win?

#935 23 hours ago

I recently purchased this game. It's very fast and lots of great shots. It's very addicting!!!

I made it to 1st with them, but the Victory Lap didn’t light. Is that still a win?

Yes, why not?

#938 22 hours ago
Quoted from indybru:

I agree. Just thinking the 0.6 code has a bug that didn’t light it. This game is really fun to shoot. Tough.

#939 22 hours ago

3 ways to win that I know of.

1) play all the modes goes to checked flag
2) go from starting position I think it's 28 to Ist which is what Blitzburg did. The third shot in Gasoline alley mode advances you 15 positions.
3) Complete 200 laps.

Not sure what points does and why you would select it for an award.
