Why race when we can OUTRUN!
« on: July 29, 2017, 01:59:36 am »
Well I drove the 8 hour drive (according to my GPS), but it was more like 10.  :badmood: I visited the Illinois legend Troy Smith... Picked up 2 Outruns. (one for parts). One is fully working but it's a ---smurfette--- of a cosmetic restore... Looking forward getting my hands on these.

The goal here is to fully restore one cab and the other (100% dependent on if the board is working and if I can get a good monitor) will be a restore as well. If not I will part it out to other outrun restorers since these cabs have a lot of parts that are not replicated right now.

I have to lighten this beast before going into my dungeon. So off goes the steering wheel! Looks like I have quite a bit of cleaning to do. These things are gross. Cab 1 is greasy everywhere... cab 2 is pretty clean.



Cab 1 Grease cab!




Cab 2 Not so bad... lol

On a side note... I panicked last night and sent Delusional a PM regarding my complete confusion over converting a Turbo Outrun to a regular Outrun (He has done this before I think). Anyway I think I scared him.... my bad Del!

Anyone want to take a stab at converting my board back to an Original Outrun? Just throwing it out there! lol

Maybe not crazy, but a little more work than everyone says.  It's not just a simple burn and swap since there are no 1mb 28 pin EPROM chips out there.

I wrote up a topic here on KLOV (still a WIP):

Here's why the simple swap of EPROMS will not work:

Good luck and let me know if you have any questions.  I posted an Outrun pickup video recently and I can always add a follow up if needed.

Love the video.... I feel like this past year we have been on the same Arcade journey... first Galaxian now two Outruns! Pretty cool. Any and all videos regarding Outrun I will watch!

Not a terribly exciting clean up... but it is done. I just scrubbed, wire brushed, rewired a marquee light, scrubbed, and scrubbed. Here are some after pictures... Just need to find an original Outrun Board. Turbo Outrun kind of sucks.

I still need to desuicide the board... and get myself an original Outrun... but it came together great. Replaced the springs and wire brushed the pedals... it was a piece of cake.

Let me know what you find out about removing that 1094 battery CPU from the Turbo Outrun.  I've resurrected my Sega Thunder Blade which has the same CPU.  I'm curious to see what needs to be done for the Turbo Outrun.  (Please don't post links to roms though).

Thanks for bringing back memories of a much younger me.  My first job after leaving school was working for an  arcade machine supplier of the time (1989-91) and my first job was installing Turbo outrun control panels and all the stickers :)  But yeah Turbo outrun Sucks :)

It does suck! I really don't have fun playing it at all.... Next Thursday I am supposedly picking up a working Outrun Board. This guy has been pretty flaky... so fingers crossed!

Well... Last Thursday was an important night for my Outrun Project. I posted a WTB over at Klov for a working Outrun board and after a few weeks I nearly lost hope. Then bam! A guy had a working board he was willing to sell. And as luck would have it, he lived less than 30 minutes from my house! Went over there checked out his collection (He had a SpyHunter, Star Wars upright, Cabaret Centipede and Outrun, 4 of the shorter pinball machines that Williams put out, Pole Position cockpit, and a (I believe) a Sea Rider with the Periscope! Very cool. He also had a few projects but overall I was impressed!

Anyway put the final touches on the Outrun. Ripped off the Turbo sticker on the side art that covered the Sega Logo, Replaced the Map artwork on the dashboard, shined up the Steering Wheel and Stick shift knob. Put in the textured black t-molding, and of course put in the Outrun PCB.

Oh, and the PCB had an added bonus. It had the highscore save kit, MPH, Attract mode, song select (with the music), and freeplay upgrade! Not bad!

I did buy an Outrun marquee off of Ebay. But once it was back lit, it was completely washed out! Total bummer.

Do you perhaps have any control panel bolts left over from the parts machine? Mine doesn't have them all.
Acceptance of Zen philosophy is marred slightly by the nagging thought that if all things are interconnected, then all things must be in some way involved with Pauly Shore.

Sorry Paige, sold the parts machine... however they too were missing the bolts. Had to match them up at the local hardware store.

Hm... putting Turbo Outrun in an original Outrun cabinet without the boost/turbo button. Doesn't that limit the game play quite a lot?  ::)

Arcade operators where given two options for the turbo button. They shipped a different shifter that came equipped with a button. Like this one...



But lots of Arcades for whatever reason decided that just wiring the Start Button to be the Turbo would be easier. My Turbo button was the start button. Sega came out with stickers to show players this...
