I have stopped using the genesis on stage as of late because all of mine sorta flake a lot due to bad cart connections. Anyone who's played a loud event knows that bumping bass and NES 72 connectors don't always go over well - welll... try the Genesis - it's even worse and most of the damn cart connectors are worn to shit. At least on the NES you can replace them. i wrote Kitch about it and tried to find the answer and pleaded that he might sell new connectors. Seems as though there is already something in production - stop me if someone already posted this and if it's obvious as hell. It took some digging to actually find:

I ordered some - i'll let you know how it goes - it's 64pins to desolder but i think its way worth it for playback stability right? haha...
