I'd be in for kitty tach as well. Would be perfect for my beater rally car.

Revlimiter, I would be in for a kitty tach with a center needle overlay. When the design is ready, just post pics and I'll place an order on your site.

Anyway to make the kitten on the center needle illuminated?

With my red NB2 gauges, a spinning fiery red kitten face would be

Would have to get a 949 twindisk clutch and flysheel to make it that much more exciting.

Bundy, how can you not be in favor of the turbokitten solution to this problem?

Yeah, go ahead and select a lighting color. I imagine most people will want green lighting to match the factory gauges as much as possible.

I need in on this. And I need to break this into a separate thread (when I'm not driving down the interstate using my laptop).

There we are. One tach with kitty needle center.

No, the needle center can't light up.

Years ago, someone on the forum misspelled "turbo" as "trubo."

It became a meme. See here: https://www.miataturbo.net/front-des...ge-here-65425/

So... Um. I'm not a fan of the confetti (though it's a fun touch)...

Don't laugh at my paint skills. This is more what I had in mind for the center design, only with actual decent graphic design skills, not a mouse and paint. If you make one like this I'll pay extra Maybe I'll buy both....
