What size legs do other SR owners have and how steep should I set it?
The game I own has 4 30" long legs and seems too tall and can only raise to 5 degrees.

Also is the bonus countdown sound different when the backround sound is off compared to on after the ball drains?When my background is off it makes same the irritating sound when the ball hits an already made lane switch for the countdown sound.

Has anyone repainted the cab?
What is a good method to make the white spots like this game and Black Hole has?

1. Legs should be 27 inches all the way around.
2. Incline to your preference
3. Star Race sounds, to my ear, are the worst pinball sounds ever...but it might just be me. Should they be different depending on the settings...I don't know. Check for YT videos is what I usually do.
4. White spots? I don't understand.

Very cool looking game, I'd love to play one one day. I've heard of people recreating the White spots or splatter effect flicking a toothbrush or similar. I've never done a resprayed on one so I'd recommend having a go at the splatter on some cardboard first until your happy with the effect.

Thanks for the info on the legs!
I haven't had luck finding videos of a Star Race without the background sounds.
Some of the sounds are irritating especially ball 2 and the sound I am talking about.
Here is a pic of the cab.
I am wanting to know an easy way to paint the white specks.

I'll try the toothbrush trick bop thanks
It is a fun and challenging game.Too bad the sounds are grating.

Agreed. SR would be a good candidate for an .mp3 based sound board replacement with custom sounds.
