Yomega Fireball and Spectrum

There aren’t any spacers it’s a single transaxle on the axle

Take a picture of the axle removed and the cups

Have you tried flipping the plastic transaxle around?

it’s the same on both sides. I noticed the transaxle can slide around in there so I need some sort of spacer

I really don’t know man, I haven’t messed around with one of those in ages. Have you tried using slightly thicker string?

I’m using Kitty XXL :joy:

This really does not look right. Something is wrong here.

that’s what I thought :sweat_smile:
My fireball is the same, both are semi responsive, leaning towards unresponsive

Fireballs and Raiders are notorious for having to be modded to play correctly. I play mine with a friction sticker added. Use the Forum’s search function for threads like these Fireball/Raider modding. New way to mod them?

I don’t have pads, could I just put some flowable on it? :joy:

You could make your own friction stickers with followable, search the forums Duct tape Friction Stickers!!!

Have you done this? Reading through the linked topic, it seems really sketchy.

I did that back in the day (2003-2004ish) with a dif-e-yo wide load while waiting for new pads to arrive it didn’t really work and was very inconsistent.

I think a cloth tape like 1st aid tape would work better as it would absorb the silicone better, stick it to some wax paper to protect the adhesive and squeegee the followable smooth and to a desired thickness. Cut out circles when it cures. Shouldn’t be to hard or messy.

Yeah true, like Tom Kuhn “turbo discs”. Those are basically circular cloth tape stickers!

We used to use hockey stick tape w/o anything added. Worked ok.

Also, fireballs and raiders need to be lubed regularly. Use a thicker oil like brain lube or 3-in-1 oil.

Ahh yeah I used to do that, then got tired of it. Also I misplaced my bottle somewhere…

Must use brain lube or responsive lube. I will say that the Yomegas of today seem to be made to a lower standard. I bought a x-brain and after a month it stripped out. Got a newer fireball and has same experience as you with the transaxle sliding from side to side like the axle was to long but using lube helped it.
