I recently rebuilt my old MAS to be 360/PS3 compatible, swapping in a new Happ comp stick. One thing I gotta say that I’m thoroughly disappointed about my finished work is that I really don’t like the stick. I have issues with how non-existent the dead zone is on it. I find it incredibly difficult to not end up in a diagonal because of how small the dead zone is on it. I currently have two possibilities up my sleeve for remedying my problem: I can either buy a router and replace the stick w/ a Sanwa/Seimitsu (and thus having a nicer stick in the process), or I can (guessing here) try sanding down the actuator in the Happ. My question is how likely am I going to do such a task correctly? Will it even be possible, or will it just end up ruining the stick?
Also are there any other suggestions regarding this? I’ve heard that the iL version of the same stick has a smaller actuator, but I’m not so sure of how much of an impact it’s going to make.
