By using 2 optics and a notched light blocker, the Pedal had 4 positions available... which simulated analog control.

Value 1 & 3 were each individual optos triggered. When both Optos were triggered at the same time, it produced value 2. Value 0 was produced if no optos were triggered.


Turbo was released in October 1981.

Turbo was also released as :
"Turbo [Sit-Down model]"
"Turbo [Upright model]"

On this cabaret model, the LED panel where the scores are kept is located above the game screen rather than off to the left side.
