Hey guys! So recently I decided to try and make my dash as unresponsive as possible. It’s a really great player now. The response is still pretty grippy, but other than suicides, tricks are relatively easy. I did three things to my dash - response, bearing, and shims. Note - this is the old version, not the C-sized, therefore, I can’t use a KK or a fancy bearing.
This is the easiest part. Unscrew the yoyo, and take off the silver metal spacers. Then, pluck out that yucky rubber response. You won’t be needing that anytime soon. Siliconing the Dash is slightly different than other yoyos, due to the spacer sitting on top of the actual response. I used this guide for siliconing.
Really, there isn’t much you can do about the bearing. As mentioned before, it’s an odd size, J or something. This means the only bearing you can use is the Yomega one. BUT, I put a drop of thin lube in the bearing, and broke it in. Other than that, the only thing you can do is just keep on playing it. Cleaning yomega bearings usually does not work, as described in the video I posted.
This is one that I came up with on my own. Using this guide:
I made two shims, and inserted them under the spacers. Then I put the spacers on, and after screwing the yoyo together, the gap is noticeably larger.

The guts. The half on the left side has the spacer in, the one on the right has the spacer out, revealing the shim I made. You can also see the flowable.
