  • PM Controller

    I really like the way this controller is performing, want to get another one but can't seem to locate!
    I have tried several on line and sleezebay sites to no avail, anybody know of shop that still sells these?
    Thanks in advance!

    That is a DS Electronic racing products controller, I could not find a US dealer that carries that model. You would probably have to try a European dealer like Slotcar-Union.

    For what you would pay for the controller and shipping from Europe, you can buy a DiFalco 301, which is a much better controller.

      Thanks
      Will check it out! Way back when I raced in the late 80's to the 90's My DiFalco spent more time in the shop than I got to use it! Sold It and used an external resistor Parma controller. Packed things up and quit. Got back to it in 2014 here in Jersey and a guy I raced with started a little business selling slot stuff, I purchased my PM from him, but havent seen him since! I hope the reliability of DiFalco is better!
      I will be checking it out!
      Thanks again for the info!

        Marty, I sell quite a few Difalco controllers and I can't remember the last issue anyone had with one. They are a very durable controller.

          Thank you ! Also have to remember that was 30 years ago that I was having problems! DiFalco was going through development and design and I may have had a bad one that slipped through the system!

          My experience is the same as Mike's with respect to Difalco controllers - rock solid reliability. We've sold hundreds in the last 15 years and very, very few problems. If you use the controller a LOT, eventually (think "years") you may need to replace the trigger shunt but this is routine maintenance, not a problem. In the unlikely event you do have a problem, Jim Difalco is always very helpful and responsive.

        The DiFalco 30 band 301 controller provides very precise control and the resistance net supports a wide range of motor rpms. Most single resistance controllers are tuned for a limited range of rpms and lose granularity outside of the range. I also have DiFalco 302 controllers which add traction control. I haven't found I needed it yet. I have had no problems with my DiFalcos. If you have seen any of my posts, I'm a lot more critical of products I buy than most.

          Thanks for all the Responses!
          Slot Car Corner, Jim was and is a very responsible and upstanding individual He did take care of my problem way back when. In order for me to keep racing USRA I needed a controller so I bought the Parma external resistor controller, and Like I said I quit shortly after due to "being called a cheat" so instead of going to jail I quit racing got married and went on with my life building 5 home tracks from Cali to Hawaii now Here in NJ #6.
          Bal r 14 I am going to get me a DD300 and start having some friends over to race against!

            Well,
            Got my dd300 yesterday, DANG what a difference from my old 30 plus years ago Defalco that I had problems with, no chance against this one! The voltage control is insane! The Braking just as well! very light in the hand easy trigger pull! My go to controller now!!!
            Thanks guys for all the help and information!
