I just acquired a getaway. The supercharger seems to work fine. The diverter opens to let the ball in the supercharger and closes to exit the ball. The question I have is that during the solenoid test, the diverter lo does not do anything. The diverter hi in the solenoid tests pops open but diverter lo does nothing in the tests. Like I said, the supercharger and the ball exiting and entering supercharger appears to work fine during gameplay. Is this something I should be concerned about that the diverter lo solenoid does nothing in the testing menu? Thanks!

Nope. Normal operation.
Diverter lo =may= be the hold winding in the coil, but IIRC from when I had a HS2, diverter lo did nothing in test.

Enjoy your game.

That got me concerned too when I got mine too but it always worked playing the game. Its a bit confusing. Thanks to others here, I was convinced from pro's like Chris here lol.
