  • Difalco Spring Tension

    I’ve gotten so use to Slot-it and Frankenslot no trigger tension, was wondering if there’s a different spring available? I’ve oiled the bearings and it helped some but still stiff.

    Parma used to make range of springs. There may be stock out there somewhere (like Lucky Bob).
    You might call Jim?

      If I recall correctly the Parma Economy springs have less tension than the Turbo/Sebring springs. I prefer more tension, to me the spring in the latest OS3 All Pro Elite is much too light, so I switched to a Turbo spring that I had hanging around. If you can't find the correct spring you might be able to re-locate the mounting point, so it is a little closer to the trigger.
      I just checked the Parma/PSE site and the springs are listed under the trigger parts.

        You can just go to your local hardware store. They have all the drawers with different nut and bolts. They usually have different springs with different tension. I am just the opposite and like a stiffer spring.

          Same here Mike the stiffer springs helps me in braking. Faster response makes going in deeper in the turns!

        Here’s the reply from Jim. “If you have a controller that was new in the last couple years it already has a very light spring on it. If it is over a couple years old then my new springs have a lighter tension. “ My HD30 is a few years older , with the stiffer spring. Ordered a spring from Jim. Thanks for the replies

          FWIW-I have stretched the stock springs on my Difalco controllers in the past. Just stretch a little at a time. Go too far, and it's hard to make it stiffer again.
