Welcome to the Rush Owners Club! This first post will act as a FAQ for the thread, so please feel free to comment any additional questions you'd like to have added here.

Q:(Premium) What are the issues with the Node 10 board and what should I do?
A: As seen here (https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/the-official-rush-owners-club-1/page/94#post-6869212), the node 10 "stepper motor" board can burn up without the ferrite fix provided from Stern. Contact your distributor and get the fix to prevent this issue.

Q:(Premium) Why is the game losing track of balls locked in the upper scoop?
A: The switches in most early premium/LE models were faulty. See service bulletin here- https://sternpinball.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/06/Stern-RushSwitchAdvisory.pdf . Contact your distributor to receive the fix for this issue.

Q: What are the issues with the scoop protector and do I need to upgrade mine to prevent damage?
A: There are 3 different versions of the scoop protectors used on Rush. The first seen here (https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/the-official-rush-owners-club-1/page/4#post-6747519) was too thin and not adequate for more than few games. The second fix seen here (https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/the-official-rush-owners-club-1/page/23#post-6796292) was also not adequate. The third and final fix seen here (https://sternpinball.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/06/Stern-RushScoopAdvisory.pdf) has worked much better than the original two fixes, although it complicates the "intended design". Your distributor will provide you with the 3rd fix if your game has either the original or second scoop protector. Third party options are also available such as NinjaCamp TPU Scoop Protector seen here (https://pinside.com/pinball/market/shops/1326-ninjacamp-mods/06616-rush-tpu-scoop-protector-full-protection).

Q: Why is my inner loop switch not registering and what should I do about it?
A: This is a common issue and can be solved in a few different ways. The ball goes around the loop too fast and flies over the switch. First, you can attempt to bend the switch up higher to make the switch more sensitive, but this can cause the ball to get hung up on the switch if you bend it too high. There are a few third party solutions available such as the NinjaCamp Loop Assist (https://pinside.com/pinball/market/shops/1326-ninjacamp-mods/06740-rush-inner-loop-assist-amp-soft-plunge-corrector) or the Gameroom Mods Upper Loop Plastic (https://pinside.com/pinball/market/shops/1167-gameroom-mods/07010-rush-upper-orbit-ball-retention-plastic)

Q: What are the must have mods for Rush?
A: Many including myself have upgraded the stock speaker system in their machine. For a premade kit, check out Pinwoofer's KO system. If you're interested in a less expensive DIY solution, check out this thread (https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/improving-sound-quality-the-diy-route/).

...so SWMBO asks me "Won't you get tired of hearing RUSH over and over again?"

I've been listening to RUSH over and over again for 42 years and haven't got tired of them yet!!

In on a LE!!

#8 1 year ago

Looking forward to my LE to arrive!

Small nit....it isn’t my favorite naming for the owners thread... Neil had such a way with words it would be nice if we incorporated some of them.

Still trying to come up with a good one. Any suggestions are appreciated.

#10 1 year ago

A mod should just combine this with your other locked club thread or delete one of them

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/the-official-rush-owners-club

Hate that we have people starting 5 club threads just to be first

#11 1 year ago

Thought you couldn’t open clubs without delivered machines.

#13 1 year ago

Begin the day with a friendly voice..

Hoping my Pro is shipped first as well and that it's got a Jukebox mode in it already

They are shipping and showing up at locations already.

On another note, are we going to see a live stream of the pro anytime soon?

#16 1 year ago

Paid in full
BRING IT ON!!!!!

#17 1 year ago

OK please indulge me in nerd time, folks.

Flipper rubber colors: Purple, pink, light blue, or dark blue? Other options?

Also considering swapping out the flasher covers for purple, at least down by the slings. Would love to hear what other aesthetic (but not necessarily add-on) mods people are planning to make.

#18 1 year ago

In on a premium first run.

where? I've only heard of the Logan Arcade one... which is kinda a test arrangement I think. Operator games haven't shown up yet... Helicon usually is first to get the goodies

Shipping is a loose term. It’s about delivery. No one in this thread has one yet. Name one location or owner.

Great song and great title.

#27 1 year ago

Getting an LE!!! Cannot wait. Got multiple mods already........

#28 1 year ago

I’m not worthy yet but hope to secure one soon. In meantime, maybe not everyones Rush fav but even better live than in the 80’s!! (Wish it was in game)

#29 1 year ago

In on a LE. Love those music pins!

#30 1 year ago

Got lucky I have a LE coming from a fellow Pinhead/Hoosier and I really can’t thank him enough .Me love it long time .

#31 1 year ago

An angel came down from heaven and offered me his LE for MSRP. Can’t wait. Lucky day for me.

What mods have you picked up? I like the Rush flippers for sure.

#34 1 year ago

In on a Premium can't wait

#35 1 year ago

got caught by the hype and ordered an LE when given the chance. Im ready to curse Borg's name when those outlanes give me fits....

#36 1 year ago

I’m patiently waiting for a Premium. “August at the earliest” was what I was told On 1/10. But…When it gets here, it’ll be here. Anybody else given a timeline on a Pre?

#37 1 year ago

I got the Start Button (really a must) light blue. I have flipper toppers coming, red light covers (full set) and the Red Barchetta with the One Lane Bridge. I may try and put one of my Hemispheres era bobbleheads under the glass as well, not sure if there is room anywhere or if it will fit (probably not). That is four mods, may get more as they come up. This pin will look like a boutique pin lol.

#38 1 year ago

In on a pro!

Quoted from jpc211245:

The car and bridge are without question my favorite......the start button is money. Love the flipper toppers and red light covers as well.

Wow august? I’m in for a premium but was told end of Feb/March…maybe April. When did you get your order in?

#41 1 year ago

Over many years in the hobby I'd stayed out of the NIB Stern game somehow until Led Zeppelin and Rush, two themes that I was absolutely not going to be able to resist since sometime in the 1970s.

I was in a LZ tribute band for years and have performed Rush songs too. Before I was into pinball I collected a great many, um, non-commercial classic rock concert recordings, including countless hours of those two bands.

Rush + pinball was a super obvious successful match in my mind since whenever I first heard a Rush song played in an arcade, and it's still hard to believe it's finally going to happen. What a sweet reward for patience. Congrats everyone!!

THANKS to all at Stern for making this happen!

Whew, now I'm pretty much out of "take my money" rock themes that are an obvious pinball match... right? Right??

I didn’t confirm until Monday 1/10. The distributor was up front and told me that I was pretty deep in the queue. But, he said it was a fluid situation given demand and parts availability…

Quoted from Apollo18:

I would start that sentence with the word "Some"
After almost 1 year here, it seems 50/50 to me... fortunately they seem to be mostly concentrated in their areas to propagate, like a virus.

Quoted from PsychoPsonic:

I was in a Rush Tribute band many, many years ago. Took 5 of us to play the songs. We had a chick singing Geddy's parts since none of the guys had that sort of range. Our drummer was insanely good but had to quit and we could never find another drummer that could handle the drumming. Go figure.
