Default My 4-year old LC-1 is sticking at 15.0 again

Output #1 is going to the gauge.
Output #2 goes to MS.

My track car's LC-1 is now sticking at 15.0, 14.9, and 15.1 on output #1, 10.0 on output #2. This happens for long periods of time, maybe hours on a road trip, even after power cycling. I reset and recalibrated last night (fun) with the same result. Any idea what's going on?

4 years sounds about right for the life of the sensor.

Accurate, though, and uses better sensors.

More or less accurate than the Innovate stuff? I want to know what they were thinking when they designed that display. Do they expect me to zip tie it to something on my dash? Really?

General consensus among the local tuners/dyno operators is that it's more accurate than the LC1, at least... no anecdotes vs. the MTX-L yet.

That said, they're comparing it against their sniffers, sooo... what's the baseline?

The display doesn't bother me personally, but i also hate having a shitload of round gauges. It's also easy to read.

probably because it reads just as far off as the stupid sniffers my dyno operators use.

Let me get this straight, a 1"x2" gauge with a numeric display is inferio to a 1.5"x4"x5" that fits in nothing? I appreciate the comment, but it's 50% more expensive, the replacement sensors are 50% more expensive, and the controller is huge and you basically have to zip-tie it somewhere.

I'm probably just getting an MTX-L since all these damn sensors are $80+ shipping.

I don't know what kind of display you're using, my mistake.

I'm using the Innovate Auto Timer as my display with my LC-1. I'm not in love with it.
