Or you can just look at your tach and shift correctly. I have shift lights on my shifter kart because I can't read the tach at speed (too much vibration + digital tach with a bar scale that doesn't refresh fast enough). I don't have them on my Miata because I'm not a ricer poseur retard.

Sav,in the heat of the moment during a street race,the last thing you want to do is take your eyes off the road to look at your tach to see what rpm your at,even for a split second.

John,I would just go with a autometer "pencil" shift light.

It's only illegal if you get caught.

The thought of street racing just became considerably more gay.
