Also a pic of the PLAYFIELD with a piece of paper that reads "centerflank rules" hand written with your signature at the bottom is also required.

i love the whole "concept" car idea... the sad part is that once it's finally made it will probably end up looking like one of these bad boys

The animation in Tron actually holds up surprisingly well. The light cycle battle especially is still awesome to me. Not many computer effects age that well comparatively.

#3316 4 years ago

Built this for my Boy... may become my topper, or at least a variation of it

We're stalled waiting for parts on a game we're shopping out, and just got Titan silicone rings and a GI smoother for our Tron le, so we decided to do some quick work on it (and hopefully play it tonight. We love it enough to have one on location and one at home). We get the ramps and some plastics off, start changing out rings and light bulbs and get a very unpleasant surprise. P1010601.JPG A very corroded post. We start taking a close look at other posts of the same type and find seven of the eight posts of this type have some corrosion in the threads. P1010603.JPG I am wondering if anyone else has seen anything like this with Stern parts? We have several Stern games on location and this worries us.

#3318 4 years ago

That's kinda bizarre...

From the pictures, it looks like rust, but those posts are stainless steel, aren't they? Maybe someone used cheap screws, and the rust is from those.

I've always thought that the posts were stainless. It'd be nice to be able to blame the screws but the worst post (in the first picture) is under a plastic and didn't have a screw in it. We've got replacements posts on order, planning to replace all eight.

Very strange to see this on an LE that we bought NIB. Makes me wonder if Stern had bad batch of posts, ours is #313 if anyone with one close to ours could check on their posts it'd be nice to know what you find.

i haven't peeked at those 2 posts in your pic, on mine, but have on some lower posts where i've put in some different plastics/etc... and didn't see rust in them.

I am getting my Tron next week and really looking forward to Modding it. I found the site for the Arcade Cab mod v3.1 but it says its sold out. http://www.usbjig.com/tronminicab.html I found the Eli's Lighted Ramp mod but it too is also sold out http://www.pinbits.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=566 AM I S.O.O.L.? Or is there other sites and ways to acquire these two Mods? Please help out a new Tron owner if you know how and where I can get these.

I'd also be interested to know if there are other avenues. FYI I did send an email to both those folks yesterday asking about availability on each mod. I will let you know what they say. Assuming they respond.

please let the shipping gods be with me and my Tron!

#3331 4 years ago

Guys, FYI, Pinbits is settling some tax/inventory issues from what my friend told me when he tried to order some protectors and stuff for his LOTR. They're not going to be selling anything until that's done from what I understand. I don't think it'll be very long but that's probably why you haven't recieved a response. They seem to sell out of the Tron kits pretty frequently...I missed out on them two or three times before I was able to catch them on the restock. =P

#3332 4 years ago

that's a beautiful tron le right there! congrats to you

Update#1

Got a mssg from Mark/Angie. They are taking orders again now and expecting to be ready at the end of May. Only a $25 deposit.

I'll let you know as soon as I hear anything about the ramp lights and thank you Frax for the info!

Lol, bought my Tron LE a couple months ago in precisely the same fashion. Had never even seen a Tron outside a photograph until NAVL dropped mine off. Curiosity got me after stumbling on this thread. Was worth it.

Does yours have the chrome door too!!!....Must stop looking at these pics....

This is all Flanks fault!!!.....and every time I say " that's the last mod", I'm lying to myself again....

It sure does. Who offers this chrome package besides Pinball Refinery? I sent them a mssg and haven't heard a thing back.

#3344 4 years ago

I thought this was the working mans Tron thread. You all need to take that fancy high falooting LE-type talk somewhere else. This statement was sponsored by the word of the day : envy.

Think Chris and Gio are the only ones w the laser cut, lit side rails ...Joey @ PDI might have the door, as well

#3346 4 years ago

I keep calling him Chris...its Steve....I have a mental block

#3347 4 years ago

Thank you. Guess I'll just wait to hear back then. Crazy expensive upgrade.

#3348 4 years ago

Hadn't rebuilt the flippers since getting mine because I thought they were pretty snappy. Tonight one of the links broke so I rebuilt both lower flippers.

HOLY @#$&! My eyes had trouble keeping up with the ball for the first few flips.

Love this game.

#3349 4 years ago

I made a before and after video. Left side is before I did anything. Right side has: cleaned playfield & disc, new rubbers, clear superbands (previously black bands), new foam pads behind all inserts, new balls, rebuilt lower flippers, and some dim flickering LEDs were replaced with incandescents.

I thought the difference was dramatic in person, but I'm not sure that it translated as clearly in the videos.
