Quoted from ABE_FLIPS:
Regarding your video, it looks like it wasn't a clean shot and still made it up the ramp, but maybe that was your point?
But a clean shot from a cradle should go up the ramp at least for 95%.
You should not get punished for a perfect shot.
My first video was purposely showing how without the added plastic, the ball would have hit the beginning of the wireform on the left and stopped dead. The second video shows more how it mostly serves as a smoother transition between the ramp and wireform.
I know how to play and adjust a game. Id wager this will be slightly modified in AIQ models later down the road. Its not uncommon to need a modified part after the fact.
The subway mech and disc leveling kits are good exaples of this. I believe i also heard about two different Captain Marvel plastics because some were scratching the glass.
