defalco v stealth

Tried a friends defalco controlller and went .02 quicker than before same car /gearing /tires and same glue up 
I know its only a small improvement that could be open to slight difference in glue up that i did not notice but has any one experienced this with different controllers 

Just enjoying Life and Slots

Re: defalco v stealth

 My opinion .02 is a lot. But not if you are dialing in a car rather than trying to run as fast as you can. Sort of comparing apples to oranges... The Defalco is more for all out heads up racing. The Stealth is more for bracket racing. I don't KNOW that all the power has to go through the power setting switch but am sure there would be some power loss there. It may be that the Defalco has better contact points in the relay and other electrical path ways. Could be something as simple as the clips being soldered to the wire on one controller and the other not. But I still suspect something else such as the car hooking up better or not.

Re: defalco v stealth

In all reality, a Stealth is a tuneable on/off switch.  The Difalco may soften the hit, seeing how it has a transistor block.  Something else for me to test with Marty. 

Thanks guys!
