I just bought an NBA Fastbreak. I have a couple of questions. There are 2 plugs I see under the playfield all the way at the back that are not being used or not plugged into something, are they supposed to be unused or am I missing what they plug into? The ball in the back glass can it be replaced with a Ping pong ball or do I need to by the ball from Marco? Thanks for any info.

Not sure if its a ping pong ball or not...


Did a quick search on the specs of a ping pong ball and found this:
"International rules state the ball shall weigh 2.7 grams and be 40 millimeters in diameter."

Marco ball weighs 3oz so I would say its not a ping pong ball.. definitely heavier.

You need the ball that goes in the machine. I just restored two of the back box panels. I might still have a used 1 if you want me to send you one if your is missing. I did say "used".... Free is free....

No it's got an old ball in it. I'm going to try to clean it. If I can't get it like I like it then I will just order one from Marco. What about the 2 plugs under the playfield at the very back that are unplugged, are they unplugged on y'all's games as well?

I will look but could be a day before I can. Maybe someone an answer that before I can get to it. Also, I take a photo or two.

The two plugs are for linking two fb together thats what makes fb so cool you can actually play against sombody on another pin

There are no plugs under the playfield for linking the games. The cable that links the games connects to the A/V board in the backbox of both games. The link cable should run through a vent hole in the back of each backbox.
