Do any of the connections require wire splicing, or are they for the most part all prewired/connected?  (e.g. the connection to the front part of the machine) :o

The front connector from pad to cabinet is a simple replacing of a tube and harness. Nothing needs to be altered, just need to unhook the wires, pull them out of the old tube, line them through the new tube, and screw the connecting tube/boxes back to the pad and machine after clipping the wire harnesses back together.

Yeah it is. As I said before, the remaining things on my to-do list are relatively simple, minus the LED mod. They just cost $ rather than time, and I already have my budget planned out for a while and those things will just have to wait a bit.

Every once in a while, we'll do stupid stuff on Sock's machine. Like the "One Foot Challenge", which is exactly what it sounds like, you can only use one foot through the song unless there is a jump, but then you have to return the unused foot to the unused position before continuing. Or the "Sitting down Challenge", where you have to sit in the middle of the pad and attempt to complete the chart with your hands. Stupid stuff to mess around and have fun with it.

We came up with something new tonight, one person attempts playing the same chart on both pads... at the same time. The results are quite silly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQRgh95Dz9Y&feature=youtu.be

I attempted a 2 on light, but decided to stop, after flinging myself around for only a minute. Then Sock got up there and passed. XD

I've done lots of stuff like that on Pump. Try butt mode where you hit all the arrows with only your butt, it's pretty great.

(Recommended only for really easy charts.)

What. If I sat in the middle of the pad I'd already be pressing the buttons. ALL OF THEM.

That butt play sounds like a good way to acquire hemorrhoids. xD  Pump it Butt!  Dance Dance Anaconda!

I imagine it would help to have a step chart in front of you so you can do plyometric pushups for the 2x jumps.

I just got this revelation.  Wow, that looks like it would be a fun chart that needs a swivel chair.  :aw)
