well said

Quoted from Billy16:

Has anyone experimented with different springs on the shooter rod to make it easier to hit Gem?

It might take the fun out of it, but I suppose it is possible to experiment with softer springs until a full-plunge has a decent chance of hitting Gem.

From Pinball Life:
Spring tension from lowest to highest:
Blue (266-5001-05)
Green (266-5001-04)
Standard (10-148-1)
Orange (266-5001-07)
Purple (266-5001)
Red (10-148-2)

Thanks for the chart, nosro. I'm not looking for a full Gem plunge--as I on occasion hold the post down--just some thing that is a little more controllable to hit Gem. Just wondered if anyone has found a better spring.

Thought I would drop a line in here to all my fellow Tron Junkies. I just received run two of the tron pop caps in chrome along with supplies for chrome LE aprons. The le aprons will be geared toward pro owners. This will be offered as a drop in functional upgrade that flashes using current code. I have the wiring kit on my site now for DIY guys.

Tron Tip #4080: How to keep your Tron's factory clearcoat in one piece..
:never and I mean never clean the PF. The black rubber particles will form an impermeable barrier to the elements, and provide what is know as a "troncoat", a waterproof alternative to mylar.....

Hahahhaa. Mine is from route and I still need to shop/clean it. Friend played it and mentioned how "slow" and fun it was.

#5811 3 years ago

Ya man...it is pretty dirty

meh, thats okay, the routed pin in my photo above had the equivalent of two "troncoats"... let it ride!! it played so slow compared to mine I shot the quorra spinner and ate half a turkey sandwich before it got to the upper flipper..

#5813 3 years ago

Mine is the complete opposite, it gets cleaned and waxed every two months. I keep her show room ready, I still need to add the clear rubber I bought a year ago

Hey since this my 1st stern 2 question can you add normal brackets instead of the silly stands ? The flippers make a buzzing sound is that normal ?

Yes, I put service rails on in Replacement of those foul stands. PBL sells them.

Stern flippers do buzz like that, I believe you can debur the armature of it to reduce some of that noise, I've never tried personally

Do you have the clear disc installed? It's required now.

Lol no. I hear it makes the ball rip like a mofo and I'm worried I'll break plastics.

Hmm, I was thinking of using a Scottish tone.

Maybe a bag of poop in the mail would be more appropriate?

Tron is a different decade HS, not super complicated or deep, but never gets old. It's almost EM style with tasks so simple it amazes you how hard it is.

Explains why I love High Speed so much!!

He sold a TRON once so that immediately disqualifies him for the position of Encom CEO

I do believe your point is valid ....found it in the code under subsection " Jager", paragraph 7..." One relinquishes all rights to executive or administrative covenants if found to have previously sold, lost or otherwise removed a TRON from their premise"...pretty clear to me.....

Scottish turds in a bag it is. Report back when completed. Also, send them an imaginary fine for no clear disc, who am I kidding, u know what u are doing!

I confessed my sins directly to the Apron of Destiny and received redemption. The apron will confirm this is true and then you shall face a vote of non-confidence due to your new pledged affinity to the four horsemen.

#5847 3 years ago

Tis true, tis true. Tiger is blessed with forgiveness for selling his Tron LE. He is back in good standing in this club, and eligible for election should a vote of non-confidence be brought against CF.
