I apreciate any help

That's really cool. Does it have pedals somewhere?

That Consolette DirtFox edition is a piece of history.

Oh ****! I have never seen a DirtFox conversion. I think these were only available in Namco Playcity carrot and never sold to anyone else. I would never have guessed anyone survived.
I would've tried to restore it back to Dirt Fox if possible.

The pedals are placed behind a hatch that is removed and placed slightly off center.

I tried to restore it with the dirt fox, but unfortunately the pcb no longer works, so I want to customize it to how the consolette is

I'd be willing to bet you could sell it as is for quite a substantial sum.

Surely someone could get it back up and running.

I have a friend who repairs pcb boards. He told me that he could make it work, however, he told me that there is a chip (or something like that) that is from Namco, which is used for the steering wheels and unfortunately that chip, so to speak, no longer works and does not get it anywhere to be able to change it. now I'm just looking for the cpo to be able to place it

Contact Caius at Arcade Projects. He's a pcb wizard.

Should you get a Dirt fox consolette up and running and restored it's somewhere in the 5000 euro price. Or even more of some collector just wants it. Would be a Pretty unique cab anyway
