Thanks.

 

Yeah, that's what I was told.

 

But I couldn't find it on the Eagle website.

 

Any idea what the stock# is?

DD255: Standard Resistor Network. 180 ohm, slower response for 16d, Falcon and Retro type motors. Very fast response for 1/32.  $18.50

DD256: Standard Resistor Network. 113 ohm, faster response for 16d, G12, G15 and G20 motors. Best for 1/24 scale.  $18.50

DD257: Standard Resistor Network. 78 ohm, very fast response for G15, G20, and G27 type motors. Best for 1/24 scale.  $18.50

DD258: Custom Resistor Network.  Slow response. 33 each of 3 different value resistances let you customize response for scale racing. 136,162 and 198 ohms of total resistance if the same value is used per band. You can also mix and match resistors to best suit your track and driving style. 1/24 or 1/32 scale.  $26.50

DD259: Custom Resistor Network. Faster response. 33 each of 3 different value resistances let you customize response for higher speed tracks and motors.  87,113 and 136 ohms of total resistance if the same value is used per band or you can mix and match response to best suit your track and driving style. Best for 1/24 scale.  $26.50

DD260: Custom Resistor Network. Very Fast response. New resistance values as of 6/10/17. This is the best network for all high powered G27 and G7 motors. 33 each of 3 different value resistances for customized response for high power G15, G20, G27 and G7 motors.  46, 64 and 87 ohms of total resistance if the same value is used per band. You can also mix and match to best suit your track and driving style. Best for 1/24 scale.  $26.50

DD262: Standard Resistor Network. 290 ohm, slow response for H.O. and 1/32 scale cars. This is the standard network in all 1/32 and H.O. controllers. $18.50

DD263: Standard Resistor Network. 218 ohm, fast response for higher power H.O. and 1/32 scale cars.  $18.50

DD264: Custom Resistor Network. West Coast Network. Specially selected resistance values for Retro, Scale, and 1/32 racing gives a flatter response over the first 20 controller bands. This lets the racer drive in the middle of the bands and negotiate difficult and twisty track sections with ease. 191 total ohms when set up as suggested. Excellent for Retro or 1/32 scale.  $26.50

DD272: Standard Resistor Network. 148 ohm, average response. This is the standard network for 1/24. Very, very fast response for your 1/32 controller. $18.50

DD282: Standard Resistor Network.  377 ohm, very, very slow response compared to stock 290 ohm network. Excellent for Fray type H.O. cars.  $18.50

Resistor Values Available: You can order any resistor value we have direct from Difalco Design! Make your own custom network or tweak the one you have if you have changed your motor class. $4.00 for a pack of 33 pre-bent resistors plus a shipping charge of $6 (within the 48 states) no matter how many you order.

With the 'custom network' kits, you must plug and play the network you need. I made a 154 as the next softer (from 148) and it is easy enough to make one for every 10 ohm increment with available standard resistors.  If one does not work, take it apart and do it differently - even changing a few resistors at the end for a different ramp.

 

The 'standard' networks are the only ones soldered in place.  Try the DD258 kit.
