Modding the Blaze Twin Shock(Pics Included)


#1

Ok I cut this stick in half. It was a giant ass one now its 2 little small ones.

Actual stick

My one, cut in half

i had to use a really ghetto method to cut it in half. I had no saw or angle grinder so I had to solder right through the plastic of the stick. Pretty funny, right? :lovin:
Thats why there’s huge ass lumps of hard melted, plastic along the side.

Here’s the buttons

From what I gather, the actual buttons( Square, X Triangle etc) and much bigger and feel different than those Slow, Turbo and Clear buttons.

The buttons are very like the Seimitsu PS-14-G

I didnt take the buttons off the PCB, but you can se them fine.

The stick is very similar to the Seimitsu LS-32-01.

The buttons are directly soldered on to the PCB.

And here’s the actual stick part

I wanna fit some Sanwa buttons in there. And a new Sanwa stick. Forgive me if some of the info is wrong. If you need better pics I can take them. I just wnana know what procedure I would have to take. Also what kind of measurements I need to take into a/cc when doing this. I really wanna mod this stick as I have 2 small ones from one big one and modding two will mean I have 2 Sanwa modified stick. Any help is greatly appreciated.


Any old threads on here that you wished you saved?

Wow, that is so ghetto.


#3

dude you should have used karate chop to cut it in half…

lol…whats next?


#4

Desolder the buttons, solder some wires and QD’s and you’re set to go.


#5

Man, should’ve just sold it and got an hrap if you were gonna mess it up like that. :sad:


#6

Should have left it one piece. Otherwise, why in the hell did you get it in the first place?


#7

:rofl:


#8

Wtf is all i can say… :amazed:


#9

lol seriously


#10

haahah awesome!


#11

r u serious ?


#12

Damn =( why would you do that?


#13

he’s irish


#14

funny thing is that he sounded pretty enthusiastic when he was going to buy it a few months ago (he posted about it in the noobie thread). and look what he’s done to it now. :rofl:

.[not so ninja edit].

enthusiastic? you decide.


#15

Probably going more for the shock factor now that I think about it. I’d be freaked out if I was in a tourney and some guy showed up next to me with this. :wow:


#16

LOL. I suppose, but I have the stick now, so I may aswell keep going. It was so ghetto tho what I did.

@ Streak:

I had no idea what the stick was like so I chanced my arm. May as well mod it now tho

@ master Chibi

LOL, for real. The Irish are known for drinking and fighting, not for using-uber-ghetto methods for cutting sticks in half. Get your facts right son. I mean that as a joke, I’m not taking offense.


#17

haha. that’d be awesome.


#18

You could probably stab someone with the rugged edge if you lost a money match or something. LOL


#19

ROFL! i just read that


#20

Are you going to leave the edge like that? Or are you going to cover it up with duck tape or something?
