    Any EVs known to be able to handle a pin (outside of the tight Tesla X fit)?

    #1752 79 days ago

    2020 Tiguan needed to take the head off to fit a new stern (easy to do, 3 nuts to remove power supply cover, 4 nuts to detach hinges).

    The trick we figured out was the body of the cabinet slides on the 2 seat side of the cargo area. Leave the single seat side up, and place the head on the seat. Everything closes up nicely and no scratching the pin or the car.

    Spike 2 can barely fit in a 2014 Subaru Forrester

    #1754 75 days ago

    Deadpool pro fits in a 2018 Subaru Forester, but it's tight.

    I saw mention that 2016-2022 Honda Pilots can fit a Stern pin. I'm not sure how much extra clearance you need for a Stern in the box, anyone try on this generation of Honda Pilots? I know a 2012 could fit a stern in the box but required cutting the top corner off the box since the sun roof dropped the ceiling a couple inches near the front.

    No way you could fit a game in that is boxed in a pilot of this generation. An unboxed stern barely fits with less than 1/2” of clearance.

    I should just be grateful that it holds an unboxed pin without modification.

    Will a Williams dmd fit in a new blazer?

    #1759 73 days ago

    What's the size of a CGC compared to a modern Stern? Picking up a CGC and wondering if it'll fit. Sterns just barely fit in my car. I'm mostly concerned about height

    Should be smaller than a stern, like most bw games.

    Tesla model X - fits kinda. Not ideal but you can make it work. Had to strap it down of course, and strap down trunk lid.

    This is the most first world problem photo I have ever seen. Congrats on the new pin (and cool car).

    Quoted from waspinat0r:

    This just in: CHR will not reliably fit a pin. Maybe if you turn it sideways and take the head off, but even then you'll probably be using lots of bungee cords and scratching interior plastics.

    Just following up on this and wondering if anyone has fit a Stern into the newer model C-HR. The clearance is about 28” but it opens up to 30” inside. Maybe if I remove the all-weather mats I can get an extra half inch.

    #1764 71 days ago

    can't be done , you need 31 inches for clearance , if you plan on leaving the head on

    #1765 70 days ago

    Just take the head off. It’s easy.

    #1766 64 days ago
    Quoted from northvibe:

    Anyone get a mustang mach e? I'd love to know if that fits a game.

    Anyone know if the mach e fits a pin? Looking to replace a vehicle within the next couple years.

    Just continuing to catalogue the list of pins I’ve successfully fit into the Mazda CX-5 (2017+ model year)

    TZ
    —Capcom Pinball Magic (must be transported on side)
    TAF
    Taxi
    —Multiple wedgeheads and 4-players from all the major manufacturers. I’ve even been able to transport a wedgehead on its side with the legs still attached.

    They all slide in with no issues. The bigger games touch the headliner a bit going in, but once it’s settled behind the tailgate lip, there’s a few inches left of clearance. It’s a great pin-hauler.

    Just confirmed that a 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid will not fit a Modern Stern.

    How would a Camry ever fit a pinball machine????

    Strap it to the roof. It'll be fine

    No tape coming from underneath wrapping over the top is an incredible oversight.

    I think it is precariously balanced on a trailer hitch

    Slugfest is an oddball cabinet. I didn't see anything listed for it. The head doesn't fold down, but part of the top does comes off. I was able to fit one (and two passengers!) in my 2005 Legacy GT wagon by loading on its side and the head off. The hatch opening is only 28" high, so can't fit any pinball games with the head on. It was super tight, but it did squeeze in with one of the back seats in the up position.

    Pulled the rear seats from my A3, framed a flat floor, and it was road trip time to pick up my Stranger Things Premium.

    Anyone have any luck with Williams System 11 games in a 2015 Subaru Forester? Someone locally may have a Whirlwind available for sale soon. Push comes to shove, I can rent a U-Haul.

    I can add Meteor (with a confident shove) to the successful column. I'm here looking because I have had luck with 2019 CX-5 until I tried my first spike2 game. 1/2 too short on the height. Time to find a new car.

    2017 Sienna can fit a pin without removing any seats.

    I hauled a High Speed in our 2018. It was tight, but it worked. I recommend a really thin piece of cardboard for the top of the game. I got a couple light scuffs on the headliner that my wife still reminds me about IIRC, it was coin box facing forward.

    This is about what it looked like to fit GOTG in my 2018 Acadia. I put a thin piece of hardboard so when I slide the pin, it doesn't rip up the carpet. This made it a very tight fit - like it wedged into the head liner at the opening. No damage to the headliner. It had just enough give.

    Just remove the head on any spike 2 games. It’s only 2 minutes worth of work and makes it easier to move and fit. 3 nuts to remove the power supply cover, and 4 more to remove it from the hinges and you are done. It’s child’s play compared to when I had to remove the head from my old Capcom. That was a PITA.

    2006 Scion Xb, 1st gen Xb is such a great Pin Hauler! Loads of space!

    Has anyone ever fit 2 pins, specifically modern Sterns, end to end in a Uhaul Cargo van?

    Interior dimensions claim 9’6” length inside the van, which is plenty of space on paper, but I’d be much more comfortable knowing someone’s done it. I also don’t know if the 9’6” refers specifically to the cargo area

    If it's a standard Ford cargo van it should be no problem.
