Okay, this is a YMMV type scenario. However, I’m extremely happy with the results and it’s a good holdover until my proper gates arrive.
I first tried to round out the square gate with a step drill bit. It didn’t work. I don’t know ‘why’, but it made the diagonals harder to hit (which is funny since my big problem with the square gate is it’s too easy for me to get stuck in the diagonals).
So for shits and gigs, I just popped out the square resistor and… for the first time since I’ve gotten the stick, I can perform my supers and ultras without screwing up.
Now the negative is the throw will be much greater. You could pad the accuator with some tape to cheat that down. It doesn’t bother me at the moment, truth be told, but I can see how it might.
So, this is not a substitute for a proper restrictor plate but, considering our friends at Akihabarashop and Lizard Lick are on a week+ delay… it’ll get it done until your parts arrive.
