Hey guys, I’ve been searching on this for a while now but I can’t seem to find an
answer to my problem. I love the feel of iL Eurosticks, but I have been installing the sticks into a plastic case which is 4mm thick. This doesn’t push down the shaft enough to give it the intended height and makes it feel off.
So what I’ve been doing is using spacers below the control panel to push down the stick. Ideally, I would like to shorten the shafts so that I don’t have to use spacers at all… but I can’t figure out how the extra notches work on the Happ shafts. I tried to remove the pivot cylinder from the top, but it doesn’t rotate properly without a pivot cylinder.
For those of you who have done this mod, how do you deal with the pivot cylinder? Do you use a smaller nylon spacer of some kind?
Also, what tool do you use to trim the shaft, and how do you measure it?
