Hey, wanna blow out your timeline?

1. Put all the backbox guts in the cab
2. Build a short, tiny DMD-size "backbox" and put it where the backbox SHOULD go, mounting a DMD in it
3. Put the two pins "butt to butt" so they look like a gigantic Joust pin
4. Play the game in versus mode face-to-face with your opponent and heckle them mercilessly

Put some of your trademark light bars on it and wire them up to a jackpot flasher or something so you can blast your opponent when you hit a shot, and it's pinball griefer's dream come true. :twisted:

Whoa, I'd never seen that before. That's pretty awesome. I don't know how you'd MOVE it, but awesome nonetheless!

Are you planning on doing something custom with the cabinets like that? I thought you were doing standard cabs?

Standard cabs... nothing exotic. After my kids are bored with them, I will move them on for a Guardians of the Galaxy most likely, or two more racing cabs :shock:

You need some motorized driving cabs! Kalahari had an Outrun cab a few years back that was the coolest driving cab I've played:

The thing moved in two axes, which was a lot of fun to drift!

I played a 12 player version of Daytona on that setup, it was was incredible.

I can’t imagine trying to move one of those things.
