Today i reached portal with all modes complete on ball one.
I had an orgasm.

#1352 5 years ago
Quoted from tomdotcom:

After a few games I think the LE's ramps light up better than the eli kit? Brighter it seems? Also the motor on this pro is loud as hell. Gonna try and lube it. Don't think Dave's LE was ever that loud. This one sounds like it's about to take off haha...

I also pitched it up to 7 degrees, and adjusted the tilt bob properly, it was set right to the bottom? Your scores don't count now as it was impossible to tilt hahaha..

Can't wait to go play some more tonight! One of my all time fave pins, can't believe it's in my basement!!

I haven't played a game yet on the new LE, but from just looking at the ramps when the machine is turned on I'd say that overall both style of ramps have a pretty similar level of brightness, but they do have a bit different appearance. As QuarterGrabber mentions, Eli's kit uses a clear cable while the LE has a white sheath which holds together a number of cables inside it. The clear cable appears to be a bit translucent whereas you can't see through the LE style cable. Visually though I think both style cables look great.

No doubt that disc motor can be loud. For me I guess I didn't notice it much anymore, just used to the 747 taking off in my basement every time that motor fires up! I thought about trying to lube it, but I just turned the volume up instead and that fixed the problem.

I did have the tilt set all the way down, but now it sounds like you've got it rolling fast and furious!

#1353 5 years ago

Ya turning the volume up does help alot, but I'm still going to try and fix it. I like to listen to my records and play sometimes too and with the way it currently is, it would drive me nuts haha..

Anyhow SUPER happy with the machine and everything, just talking about the game is all

Happy Happy

#1354 5 years ago

The disc motor thing might work itself out. Mine was really loud too, then after a few hundred games the sound is gone.

#1355 5 years ago

my disc motor started makeing some not fantastic happy happy noises at me tonight... then it went away after a few games.

even after all this time my scores still hover in the 15-25 mil range. Im such a pitiful player

#1357 5 years ago

True stuff! Those things sort of feel like cheating. Thanks Super Bands!

#1358 5 years ago

im loving the road trips pics there buckman!

all that snow reminds of something from the 80's called TRON ON ICE

Quoted from Buckman:

Now that looks like one fine machine you've got there! Walked downstairs this morning and couldn't believe that it wasn't there, but luckily for me there's this cool looking machine I picked up from kamidave to take it's place
Had an awesome time driving up to meet you guys yesterday and drop off the machine, and glad to hear you like the machine. I got lucky with driving yesterday and the Coquihalla Highway wasn't too bad (just a few snowy sections). Always fun doing a pinball road trip!

Oh man I forgot what the original pop bumpers looked like. Get hooked pop bumpers. I think chrome would look good with the ramp lights of the LE.

Haha..... Here's a 30 sec clip.... I spy a blinking recognizor in the background

Quoted from retired_user_101:

ok… someone has to find a video of that & post it here !!
(but only if it is TRON ON ICE LE)

#1366 5 years ago

if you ever find the full video of TRON ON ICE.... please post it here! or pm me

Quoted from retired_user_101:

holy cow… i guess the Tron piece was a segment of the bigger 'magic kindom on ice' show?
guess i'll be looking for that entire piece now. that's a must see

#1367 5 years ago

wow.... so it sounds like the super bands are a win win? need to buy a few sets of these for my pins. you guys using the blues on tron?

Quoted from Erik:

#1368 5 years ago

What do you think of these - if you have not seen them yet.
Seems every owner has posted here so though as an owner I would share.
Lit chrome version (less chrome screw in my haste to post).
This is mounted on a pop body with my custom led pad under the mod.
I agree its a bit over powering in pics but really cool in person.

Who else had a Trongasm when he read this?

Are some black and some chrome? More pics and looking good!

#1375 5 years ago

heh hooked..... im liking the direction you are going with these tron discs. what do you think about possibly taking OUT the word tron in the middle of the discs? i was just thinking it might look cleaner if it was just the design of the disc. just thinking there might be enough of the words "tron" on the backglass, sideart, pf,etc. all in all lookin good mang.

Top Notch work! I REALLY like them but I think Ill stick with my Devo bumper toppers (I was guessing you were making a few to sell as well?)

Ive spent wayyyyy too much $ on TRON already. Well see though, if Devo ever starts falling apart Ill have to hit you up!

Or maybe sooner, Damn those look bad ass the more I look at them.

#1377 5 years ago

Yes some 3 set black or 3 set chrome.
Chrome will be released soon black after Christmas.
Kit comes with Three customer disc -four custom plastics -3 custom led pads and hardware.
Its a 10 to 15 min swap all you need is a Philips head screw driver and your golden.
Target price at this point $89 chrome $79 black.
Pre-orders get a discount so just pm me.
This wasnt meant to be a fs add on just a tron lovers update.
FS post is in mod section.

LOL! Hey you rabid TRON modifiers, check out these brand new kick ass EL pop bumper mods and try to restrain yourself.

Dude Abides needs to add a 5o'clock free crack giveaway pic!

#1379 5 years ago

these pop bumpers caps are great !

#1382 5 years ago

well, a little misery now...

just noticed that the arcade was not more full square (hit by air ball ?), and was not more fully assembled/glued
i took it of, it goes in pieces

i know i can rebuild it... but...
dont tell me to buy the last arcade "mod", i know its beautifull and surelly one of the best mod in pinball history, but it's way to expensive for me (even more when i had already the version 1 and it burned after 3 seconds of work... no luck !)

now, i than replace the flash above the scoop, and to be honest, the first feeling is strange, but it became quickly addictive, as the flash hit you in the face while playing, and the view seems now clear in/to the bumpers ... !!!???
my son say the same (are we mad ???)

now, if you got some original idea to "cover/hide" the flash with a toy or something else, tell me, i can change my mind (and a small cap didnt do it, i tried it, with the other one on the ramp, its not good)

You could get some TRON toy (clu ship/quorra car or whatever) and mount it on colored lexan using the 2 posts that have the rubber rings on it. Youd need 2 metal spacers (one with female end and male end) to give you the clearance over the flasher and the machine screw right behind it.

Maybe stern would replace your arcade if you call them, damn game looks naked without it, mod or no mod.

I still have my original arcade cab if you want it, just cover the shipping and you can have it for free.

#1394 5 years ago

FYI I have the original arcade cab with the v1.0 screen mod and it is not square. It looks like something I would have created in wood shop class. I call it the rhombus. Still I like to tell myself there's a certain charm to it

I didnt even think of that LOL! I have mine for free as well if anyone needs it!

Well, its no surprise why Captain Kirk also has eyes for Tron. And look, he even brought his own lamp.

tanx for the feedback about my prob

pin is not more under warranty from time, even if P.P. is a nice guy, i doubt they send me a new one (but OK, its xmas time, i may ask, we never know)

and tanx quartergrabber+centerflank, you're already nice guys with the proposal, but i still got mine, not broken, just de-glued, and i still got another, the one bought/get with the v1 mod mounted in it

than, at the moment, leaving it as it, until i'll find something original, or... break the bank and get that v3 mod (but now i'm really in love with these new bumpers caps, the full plastic set, and some mirros blades)

Santa, are you listen to me !?

You need an arcade cab in that area. It looks naked without it and that flasher will get on your nerves in no time! Id rather a non working cab in there than none!
