I had a few local racers request this item, so I put Geary on the job.
 
In the middle of the design of it, one of the racers asking for it, originally, said he found a couple versions of it available from European companies.
 
One is not a Parma replacement, and the other is a multi-piece design, so I had Geary continue on it, and his design of it is fairly different, IMO.
 
I'm not a 2 finger driver, but the first version, I find, as quite comfortable.
 

3D printed from stiff, strong, material.

 

Version 1 (pointy end) $16.00 retail

Will it be a retrofit for Parma & PM triggers?

The pic is now posted.

 

It's fits the Parma frame, which I think has been copied by a few other companies.

 

Looking at my PM controllers, I use when guys bring in their 1/32nd homeset cars, I doubt they will fit.

I still got a couple old steel triggered resister controllers than could use them. Thanks for the photo.

In the middle of the design of it, one of the racers asking for it, originally, said he found a couple versions of it available from European companies.
 
One is not a Parma replacement(a different bushing size), and the other is a multi-piece design, so I had Geary continue on it, and his design of it, is fairly different, IMO.

I'm glad I didn't stop Geary from continuing on the project.
 
One of the local racers who was interested in the 2 finger design brought in both of the ones he had spotted.
 
Wherever they are made, they must have smaller hands, because IMO, they are 1 1/4, or 1 1/2 finger triggers.

Have they been durability tested by Cap or Al "the thumb" Rutti?

Sounds complicated, but regardless,do you ever wish it was longer?

Your controller trigger, that is.

Anyway, this one has lasted 2 hours without breaking. Lol

 

PS - I just tried to snap the one on the controller in post #1, with my 2 hands.

 

I couldn't even get it to flex, but remember I'm a 62 year old weakling.

 

PSS - these are 3D printed. I added that to the description.

Although I just got an order for one, from a raceway, I haven't seen enough interest in this item to offer it to the dist.

 

I removed the references to CR021 and CR022.

 

CR021 has been assigned to my trimmed guide nuts.
