A new controller is either going to lower your lap times or it is not, that is why you should try one out before you buy it if you possibly can. The Difalco has all of the adjustments that you really need and the dual polarity feature is an added bonus. There are a few controllers on the market with a lot more adjustments, finding the best combination of those can be nearly impossible for many people. In addition it may be very difficult to make changes on the fly. Difalco controllers are very robust and are protected from hazards like being misconnected, they will last for years with a minimum of maintenance. At the Area 51 24 hour race Difalco controllers were the weapon of choice for the majority of the racers.

Butch - here's a "special" tip to help you with controller adjustments. Before each race, put a few drops of superglue in the trigger bushing. Don't worry about adjusting any of the knobs. Follow my tip and I guarantee you'll see a decrease in deslots...

See? It's this kind of priceless knowledge that makes our forum great :)

No wonder I asked Steve to help with the review.

I always wondered why you never came out of the slot, now I know. :lol:

I like to drive real slow so everyone can admire my car. :banana-dance:

Well, all this talk about superglue helps me understand why I deslot so often.
You see, I used a slow setting superglue, and it set up when the car came onto a straightaway and I pulled the trigger. For some reason, the car didn't slow down at the end of the straight... :roll:

Steve's just pulling our leg with this super glue thing. I may be dumb but I'm not stupid, everyone know you use epoxy glue on brass bushings, not super glue.
