I cant say enough about how well both of my ORCA's have performed. These things are pretty fantastic!

I agree on the Orca. Everyone who was using an orion at our track has switched to Orca.

+1 especially when paired with an SRG-BLS servo. The Sanwa/Airtronics MT4 is the same speed (or very close), smaller/lighter, and cheaper, so it's worth checking out.

I think it comes down to personal preference between the 4pksr and the m12. Try to get your hands on both and see what feels better. Play with the menus and see which you prefer.

The new smokem top deck and layshaft holders could be a good hop up

Spacing the topdeck up by 1mm does roughly the same for me and is a lot cheaper.

Would it be possible to get a picture of how and where you place the spacers. I usually run a low to meduim grip track and this could be a handy tuning aid.
Appreciate any information you can give.
