  • I want to build my own arcade controls!
Check out the video



I made a video to show the process of the Arcade1up conversion to Super Off Road. My plan is to reproduce the control panel and pedal insert so others can easily convert their Gen1 to a super off-road cab very easily.

This and the 3 driver Sprint are two of my favorite cabs ever.

Of course I need more project ideas like I need to lose my hair faster.
Relax, all right? My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools! I can fix it.

i shave my noggin now.
the faster the hair falls out the faster i can shave my head. :)

oh and this looks darn cool opie.
did you do anything to make the cabinet stiffer or does 3 people turning those wheels not cause much flexing in the frame?

The wheels are tiny and they are playing the game wrong.

There shouldn't be much flexing with that combination.

When you play those games you have to whip the wheel around.

That is how they are designed to be played.
