    Hello, i installed the Pinball Lifes shaker motor to my new TMNT, unfortunately its much too strong.

    I have a shaker on my DP which is 1/3rd of the power, much better. Rattling tape won't help with this problem.
    The in-game settings just provides quantity not intensity.
    i can not turn the weights because there is just one pre drilled hole in the weights mounting pole to lock the weight in place.
    i thought about cutting the weights in half, bad idea? any other options, something electrical maybe?

    Quoted from Nokoro:

    Is there a threaded rod in the metal housing that goes from one side to the other that you can tighten? My old shaker in my Star Trek Pro had one for that very purpose.

    yes, i thought about this too and i tightened it to a point where the metal frame got slightly bend.
    i didn't want to go further because i wasn't sure how tight i can make it and how it affects the mechanics. any idea?

    also what do you think about cutting the weights?

    Quoted from jgreene:

    I think you can rotate one weight. If the weights are both pointing in the same direction you’ll feel the max imbalance (shake). Rotate one weight 90 degrees and check.

    thanks but in my first post i said that i cant do it, because the pole has just one hole where the screw can be locked in, i cant use different positions of the weight.

    thanks, i tightened the screw even more now and the housing really is bend, but it works!

    cheers!
