  1. Really great looking teams. Thanks for sharing with us!
  2. Looking good, Coach Kit! Some of our newer members like young Bobby here haven't been around long enough to have full knowledge of the wonder that is TOEPRO! 🙂
  3. Another point of clarification. I did put the magnetic cover on top of bare sheet metal. I did not have it on top of an already vinyl covered field. Also, while I do have a good engineering background, I do NOT know the physics of magnetic field effects on vibrational fields. I do know there is a relationship however as magnets are used in many applications to deaden vibrations. I have my suspicions however, based on what I have seen, that magnetic sheets may have a negative effect on the playing field vibration beyond just their additional thickness.
  4. Coach, I have used fields printed on magnetic sheets and I will not choose this method again. No matter how thin you get the magnetic material (and there is a minimum thickness), it is another layer of material between the vibration and the player. In short, everything got SLOW and jerky. I was able to adjust the motors and placement to smooth it out and speed it up a bit, but compared to a vinyl cover it is woefully inferior. As a result, I stuck that board to the side of my fridge (looks awesome by the way) and redesigned a new vinyl field for myself. My board runs like a dream now on two tudor electric motors using the Tudor blip switch as well (aka Play Action Remote). I would spare you from the expense of going through the process of getting a magnetic field only to not be satisfied with it. Obviously, to each his own, however. Some of you out there may have had a better experience. For me, vinyl is clearly superior.
  5. One of my all time favorite players. His career was tragically short but boy as it memorable. My father's favorite running back.
  6. This is great! I've never seen this game before in my life. I DO remember Otasco however. Talk about a blast from the past!
  7. LOVE this. Brandon is a great guy and a true EF devotee.
  8. Paul, This sounds like a great variant. Eager to see your formations and maybe some plays in action.
  9. NEFGM, I have never heard of this before now. Thanks for posting this link. Must have been incredible to watch. I can just imagine the shock that would have caused. Looks like great minds think alike, Paul. You and coaches Bryan and Humphries were on the same wavelength!
  10. Found this gem on Youtube recently. Probably the most impressive display of strength from the speed ski/cleats https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZcvVq8T2LI&feature=youtu.be
  11. Amazing amounts of information on this subject has been generated over the years. Adjusting EF bases so they consistently run as you wish them to (AKA Tweaking) is probably the single most important skill you will develop in order to "improve" your game. Why the quotes? No one HAS to tweak anything. However, a lot of us would like to have players that consistently run in a desired fashion. Lynn "Weirdwolf" Schmidt said it best during one of his interviews (and I paraphrase)--once you can get reliable movement on the field, you can now develop strategy. Voila! You are playing EF at another level. I have sat at the feet of many coaches and watched and listened. Many videos have been put forth. For me, personally, I point to the legendary Electric Coach as the single biggest influence on my knowledge of tweaking. This in no way suggests other videos are inferior. Rather, Moe is simply the guy that I learned the most from. Check him out here! https://tudorgames.com/how-to-play/electric-football-nation.html Also, I've attached the famous Wally Jabs tutorial as edited and compiled by TOEPRO Coach Kit Kinchen. Gold mines of information. No get those pliers ready and get to squeezing. 😎 Wally Jabs tweaking tutorial.pdf
  12. This is one of those "It Depends" hobby questions that really comes down to what do you enjoy doing. Meaning, how much do you enjoy painting tiny details on tiny figurines? If you enjoy that, by all means, paint away. Some logos are easier than others. If you don't enjoy painting much, decals are a great option. Personally, I enjoy painting and have for decades, but I still use decals. They just offer me a crisp uniform result that is difficult to achieve with many team logos. Some logos are quite easy to paint however. If you haven't tried painting logos, give it a shot! You might find you really like it and you're really good at it. As for my personal preference? Decals hands down.
  13. Indeed. I use 2 Tudor motors (wired not battery powered) on my 2x4 home-made board and it runs great.
