Not wanting to start another "How to get rid of it thread"here(that's just below),
but I've just had a thought so please bear with me for a moment.
My Tiger is a 2007 S&S model and as such,is still fitted with it's original Rx13 mainboard
(admittedly turned over and heatsinked)and I'm currently looking into killing the heinous
track recoil by piggybacking another Rx13 onto it to run the turret functions.
So,just to recap,to "fire" the maingun,one presses the "K" button,the board signals
the sound unit to make the "boom" and sends a pulse to the drive motors thus giving
the whole shebang a silly jerk back on the tracks,yes?
Piggybacking an extra board means you leave the track drive on one and turret functions
on t'other(I know you all know this)but,but,and here's the idea.
People have fitted gun recoil units,both OEM and their own designs using various methods
to actually trigger the recoil.
On the "turret function"board you have the drive FETs,they're not hooked up to the
drive motors(t'other board does this),but they'll still receive the signal for the recoil jerk.
So,to trigger the gun recoil unit you already have an inbuilt signal from your "turret board",
hook up your recoil unit to one of the drive motor sides(left or right,it shouldn't matter),
press the "K" button,"boom" and the gun recoils(yay!!).
Only thing is
........I bet someone else has thought of this and you all know
Tiger 1's are the Daddy.
