Controllers

Updated 101917

IMPORTANT NOTE: PARMA STOPPED DIDN’T MAKE  ECONOMY CONTROLLERS FOR OVER TWO YEARS.  While they have recently resumed production of their Economy wire wrapped ceramic resistor controllers at this time I have decided not to carry them for the following reason.  They have raised the price of their lower quality Econo controllers to $39.99 directly against the higher quality (smooth resistor board, longer heavier duty wire) DS controllers.   At this time I have DS controllers available.  I also have Parma HO Plus controllers.  See the descriptions below.  Supply is limited. I now have DS controllers in 45, 55 and 120 ohm ratings, The DS controllers come with a longer wire and three wire open leads. You can install alligator clips at additional cost or you can splice in the connector of your choice on your own. I am again making DS controllers in multiple ohm ranges.  For example a  35, 45,55  ohm DS would be $59.95 as is a 35/45/55 ohm unit as is a 120/90/60 ohm unit.

The job of the controller is to feed power to the car in direct proportion to how much the trigger is squeezed.   A good match produces response throughout the range of the controller.  A bad match can produce a soft response, i.e., you squeeze the controller and the car does not respond until the trigger is 1/3 to ½ way down the resistor. Here the resistor has too high a rating for the car it is trying to control.    Equally undesirable is a ‘fast’ controller response, here the car takes off like a shot when the trigger is pulled back lightly.  This is due to a resistor with too low an ohm rating for the car you are trying to control. Whether you use a controller with a resistor or an electronic controller (no resistor, but uses various electronics to control voltage to the track) you want a controller that is a good match to your cars requirements.  Below are various resistor and electronic controllers with an explanation of the best application for that controller. DS controllers are available in green, yellow, orange or blue.  Please specify and have a second choice in mind.  Note: I now have JG’s Comfort grips (see below) available for Parma, DS, DiFalco, Russkit and Professor Motor controllers.  

If you race a wide variety of slot cars we have multiple range controllers which, with the simple flick of a switch, can change the resistance of the controller to offer better response.

 45 ohm DS DS- 45  ohm similar to the Parma controller but with a longer lead wire with open three wire leads alligator clips or a connector of your choice can be added (by customer) most importantly these controllers have a smooth 21st Century resistor board rather than a ceramic, wire wrapped resistor.   Available colors yellow, green, orange and blue. $39.99 or 45 ohm (best for stock out of the pack HO magnet cars) or for the Mega G, Storm SS or stock 1/32 cars. $39.99
 55 ohm DS DS- 55 ohm similar to the Parma controller but with a longer lead wire with three wire open leads.  Alligator clips or a connector of your choice can be added (by customer) most importantly these controllers have a smooth 21st Century resistor board rather than a ceramic, wire wrapped resistor.  Available colors yellow, green, orange and blue. $39.99 55 ohm good for stock t-jets or other cars with a fairly low power draw $39.99

 

ds 120 ohm

DS 120 OHM – Made especially for us.  This 120 ohm controller has a resistor board instead of a wire wound resistor for smoother operation.  The new Tomy Mega G+ call for a 120 ohm controller and this is the answer.  Works well with Aurora t-jets on a technical (tight/twisty) track as well.  Comes with three wire open leads.  Available colors yellow, green, orange and blue. $39.99

DS 25-35-45 OHM

This is the multiple range 35/45/55 ohm controller.  Covers Wizzard Storm Extreme stock and lightly modified Tyco 440’s, Super G+, Aurora AFX and Auto World Xtraction. Available colors yellow, green, orange and blue. Comes with three wire open leads.( also good for unmodified versions of the above as well as  Thunder jet 500’s and most stock t-jets (55 ohm) in general use. For extensive t-jet use higher ohmage controllers are recommended. Available colors yellow, green, orange and blue. Comes with three wire open leads.

DS 120/90/60 ohm are best for Tomy Mega G+ (120 ohm) as well as Aurora and Auto World Thunderjets (higher ohms on technical tracks, lower ohms on faster tracks).Available colors yellow, green, orange and blue. Comes with three wire open leads. $59.99

 DSC08502  NEW! JG’s Comfort grip.  This is a full 1/4″ thick foam grip for Parma, Russkit, DeFalco or DS controller handles. Perfect for long term comfort when racing. Can be removed carefully for servicing controller if necessary.  $9.99
 DSC08499 NEW! JG‘s Comfort grip.  Same as above but longer for Professor Motor controllers.  Fits very snugly but is tough enough to be carefully manually removed without damage. $9.99
