    Installing LS-32 in HRAP VX-SA

    So...

    I am a novice with this stuff, but I know replacing the JLF with an LS-32 isn't a straight swap in this stick.

    I keep reading I'd need a certain mounting plate, like an SS or something?

    Can anyone break this down into idiot speak? I have the skills to do the swap as long as no case modding needs to be done, I just need to know what to buy.

    Thanks in advance! I'm trying to avoid buying a dedicated Seimitsu stick if I can just swap the JLF out of what I have.

    The SS plate should normally be OK, but I forget how the brackets are inside the HRAP EX.
    I also personally prefer the LS-40 over the LS-32.

    I've scoured the internet and I can't find a straight answer. Many of the answers I find refer to the HRAP EX model, but it's tought to find something along the line of, "to install an LS-32 in a HRAP VX-SA, use this plate".

    I might just go for the HRAP VX-SE, but I'd like to save $100 if I could.

    Your OP said EX. Use the SS plate in the VX.

    I suggest modding the JLF with a kowal 'oversized' actuator. $5 and now you have the best stick.

    Unless you think the ls32 is the better stick, no mod needed

    I actually found a RAP VX-SE reasonably priced, but I'm going to buy the Kowal for my other 2 JLFs.

    Thanks for the heads up!
