yea that looks like what you need. how is the switch mounted? screw in? or is it soldered to the board? if its soldered to the board like a 2k4 timmy, you'll really want 2 ppl and 2 soldering irons to get all 3 pins out at once.

The Pimp switch is actually held in with two screws right through the switch.

Dave, what is the stock switch? 80g?

same exact thing happened to me.. i just called evil and in like 4 days brand new for free... also is it just the top part of the switch.. like do you still see the little rail and copper colored piece that slides on it.. becasue thats what happened with mine ..and when you get the new switch instead of unsoldering and resoldering the whole switch like evil says to do... just snap open the new switch(has 2 little snap open points) and just click the top part on to what is already in your board... if the whole thing is gone then youll need to reolder.... but just call evil.. they dont ask for warranty info or anyhthing.. they just send it out to you ... hope this helps

i could have used my old matrix microswitch bc there very similar but the wiring connecting the original PIMP switch was hard to splice the outer coating so i ended up cutting it down too short, im prolly just gonna send it too them and see what they can do, do u think theyll install WAS for me if i send 130

Was it Super bouncy or did it go full auto? Did you try adjusting the trigger and the ETS setting?

Should just be able to adjust the ETS up. It only goes to around 140 something!

If most of us use the stock switch (80) on an ETS of 5-6, then a lighter switch (25) with an adjusted ETS should work.

But thats just me thinking about it. Give it a try Raydee and let us know how it goes!
