Heads up that ULEK Store has made a plastic protector for the -09 plastic (the triangle piece to the right of the left ramp/left of the Quorra shot):

http://www.ulekstore.com/09_Triangle_Protector_Piece_for_TRON_p/triangle_protset_tron.htm

They also sell a set with slingshot/return lane protectors too: http://www.ulekstore.com/Slingshot_Return_Lane_Protector_Set_for_TRON_p/trans_protset_tron.htm

They produced these by my personal request. I'm going to use the -09 protector to piece my busted one back together. I highly recommend installing one before yours breaks!

I kept dreaming of a world, I thought I'd never see...

That's right man, I GOT IN.

I'm back for good. I've been around the world with pinball machines, and I will make the bold statement that TRON is my favorite machine of all time. It is a horrible feeling not owning one.

Quoted from labnip:

I wanted to let it set for 24 hours before putting any games in on it. I put it on a new disc and used some 3M spray adhesive to help hold it down. About to fire it up...will report back.

#4767 3 years ago

I used 3M spray on mine and did not have very good results. It kept flying off after a few plays. I even started with a brand new clear disc. I eventually used clear epoxy. I think it is on for good now.

#4768 3 years ago

Just played it for about an hour and no issues with it coming off. And it's just as insane and fun as everyone has said. Plus no black crap on the playfield!

At first I was like--uh this is making the ball spin even less than the black disc. But then I realized I forgot to plug the disc motor back in.

Hi,

I am seeking the help of a kind Tron LE owner ! I have been working on adding the moving recognizer on my Tron Pro. I got all the parts except the bracket that holds the 3 switches behind the back panel. I have been searching for this part for over a year I have a custom made one but I would need the exact dimensions of the original one to do a clean job (and to have it produce). Let me know if you are willing to help My goal is to make this mod available to all Pro owners...

Cheers,

Marc

Sorry flank, I though you said have you seen the new TRON VE and about shat myself.

By the way, do you think the TRON VE will have the lighted ramps or the moving recognizer when Stern builds it?

My money is on the lighted ramps, but not the recognizer .... Or just no ve at all

I've just joined the club and am starting to understand what all the buzz is about. Someone told me to leave my back door open so that centerflank can deliver a welcome "package", WTF?

20160120_174605_(resized).jpg

I have noticed that on my machine, the GEM shot and the left loop shot frequently (approximately 25% of shots) results in a SDTM. Is this normal or is there potentially something missing in the pops area of my machine?

Try a thicker post sleeve on the one right above the Zuse pop number cap

Edit---Nice chrome rails, who did you buy that from?

re-edit---- Ah, must have been this one....

#4783 3 years ago

I don't mind the SDTM drains if that is part of the game. I have only played one other Tron machine and I didn't notice getting SDTM so often from the pops. Is this typical?

Also, who sells sleeves in different thicknesses?

Yep, that's the one I picked up.

I had some Cliffy post sleeves that were a little thicker than the stock ones, I now have the clear ones from the Germans that are even thicker than the Cliffy's, Im going to throw that on next time I give TRON a good cleaning......I might do that this week actually....

#4786 3 years ago

Just to pitch in...mine never goes SDTM on those shots always bangs around the pops for a while. maybe if its going really fast and its the perfect storm it will fly through there.

Maybe its a leveling issue? You did just get the game. I know in my game room some of my games could play perfect in one spot and if I move them i get weird SDTM issues.

For example my TOTAN. I had it on one side and it would always bounce in the pops and i loved it. now its moved across the room and I barely ever get it bouncing in the pops just flys right through not touching anything.

My Cyclone Boomerrang/Spook house. Same thing.

And I use 2 levels and typically get games "level perfect" but find sometimes they play better with a little tweaking after you know what's happening to that specific game in that specific location.

It would be nice if my clear discs from the Germans show up soon....it says " expect 30 day delivery" but didn't think that could be right ( I'm nearing that on my order)....what's the normal time for delivery from these guys?

Just a wild guess, but they may be waiting for one of their new arrivals to head to the US, and stick it in his backpack...

Sorry for the fuzzy picture, but I learned from this that Stern post sleeves (left) are thinner than Williams post sleeves (right). Maybe everyone already knew this except me.

20160125_211935_(resized).jpg

In summary, if the balls are not being deflected into the pops, replace the Stern post sleeve above the Zuse pop bumper with a Williams post sleeve. This eliminated nearly all of my SDTM drains from the pops.

Does it return to the flipper now or always deflect into the pops?

#4793 3 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

With the Williams (thicker) post sleeve, a strong plunge, or a strong shot to the left loop will send the ball to the pops nearly all the time now.

Previously, with the Stern post sleeve, those same shots would fly through the pops or otherwise miss the pops and straight to the flippers, frequently down the middle.

I was unaware of this as well. I don't have the issue, and I guess I assumed they would be slightly different but that is significantly. Ill place that tidbit in my back pocket for the future!

Hmm, maybe try a slightly thinner sleeve when you get your hands on one. I personally like it returning to the left flipper, your call though....

Even if this came with the control rod that goes in the backside like the SouthPark episode, Id still drive it.
