Default STRI Gauges

Not sure who has heard of STRI gauges, but they make some very high end gauges, similar to Defi, but much more affordable. I have these gauges in stock, DSD and X-Line Series.

The DSD Series Features:
  • User Preset Warning
  • Peak Recall
  • Backlight Dimmer for Nighttime Driving
  • Automatic Calibration
  • Short Circuit Auto Detection
  • Laboratory Grade Sensors for Extreme Accuracy
  • 270 Degree Sweep Movement
  • Opening and Closing Ceremony
  • LED Backlighting for Long Life and Low Power Dray
  • Titanium Finish Casings

Here's some pictures.







They come in 52mm or 60mm, and in Clear Lens and Smoked Lens, Black/White Dials, with White LED or Amber LED lighting.

They have Boost, Water Temp, Oil Temp, Oil Pressure, Fuel Pressure, EGT, Tach, Volt, Intake Pressure, and a 3bar Boost..

PM me for pricing.

Actually, we ordered almost exclusively imperial, or as I like to call them... American. So, yes.

Not sure, I can find out. I do know that master distributor has only had to replace like 4 gauges in the last year, so I would say the quality is there.

Nester, I'm going to need the following:

1 Water temp gauge (black with white letters all)
2 EGT
3 Oil temp.

I just sent a guy selling under radio gauge panels a question regarding the size of the gauges that will fit to give you an appropriate answer about the final sizes on those gauges.

Thanks,

Rafa

Well, I was all excited about ProSport gauges, but unfortunately I am reading complaints about accuracy and longevity.

The STRI DSD ClubSports have caught my eye. The price is reasonable and the literature really seems to spotlight build quality and accuracy. I've not read a single bad thing about them on various forums either.

My only nit-pick is that you-tube videos of these non-smoked gauges make the backlighting look obnoxious and the pointer burns as bright as the Hindenburg. This might be due to the same backlighting being used for both smoked and non-smoked gauges, just a guess. I'm sure bad camera work contributes as well.

Nester, have you had a chance to play with the ClubSports?
The manual is not yet available on STRI's site. How does the dimming feature work? Does it rely on the vehicles dimmer or does it auto-dim to a preset level when you turn the lights on? If auto-dim, is it user selectable or factory preset, etc.

Is it possible to disable all that silly needle dancing when they first get power?
