I know on many you could have what the GMT has,V/SAT. It involves removing a resistor and
putting a potentiometer in its place,mounting it externally. So if your existing SAT resistor is
say,220k,then if you put in a 400k pot you could turn it way down for a faster speed and turn it
way up for an even slower speed than you already have,if needed. Variable Self Adjusting
Threshold-V/SAT! The 400k pot goes 0-400k,400 being the most resistance it can offer,0
being no resistance. Doing this instead of simply replacing the resistor takes the guesswork
out of hoping you have the right resistor for the speed you want. You can basically tune it
infinitely within those parameters.
You did a nice clean job on the mods!

the R24 resistor replacement. i only replaced that resistor with a 1Meg resistor. i read some were that replacing with a higher one than that can make the machine a bit chatty? is that correct. should i stay with the value that i have added. or put a higher one in?

also am i right that after the mod is done you can use other whites blue max series coils on the machine?

thanks in advance guys.
You didnít by any chance send me a PM over on the geotech forum several days ago did you?

I guess I am going to give this a shot myself on a Classic 2 I picked up a couple of weeks ago unless I can locate someone to do it for me.
