Maybe for a fast revving motorcycle, but I don't think any of our engines can rev up and down that fast. It was only a problem towards the end. Looks like an interesting product.

The thing I am wondering about is how easily it can be generically adapted to whatever vehicle.

Honesty Dimitris, you **** me off sometimes

I'd prefer it in a full colour OLED display, but it's still freaking awesome. Where are you going to mount it?

You can get OBD-II data (RPM, CLT, Load, ignition advance) at an impressive 1-2Hz sampling rate. Hurray!

Wow a whole 1-2hz eh impressive

I'm currently trying to get my head around programming a 4DGL 1.5" OLED screen, but having never programmed before it's rather slow going.

Will be very cool when I'm done though.

i gots one of those aim things from early in the thread.

custom gauge set up-redcaraim1.jpg

i like the programmable idiot lights. when on track i only look at the shift lights (sometimes) and the idiot lights. if something flashes then i look at the gauges.

you could theoretically add a vdo gauge for fuel pressure and set an idiot light for < 60psi. same deal for wb02. you get 8 channels so u could do 3 temps +3 pressures + fuel level + wb02 (there are only 6 idiot lights, so i guess you have to pick your battles).

i'm currently tring to figure out how to share sensors with ms over can bus so i can datalog.

I don't know about you guys but I prefer analog-style gauges. Digital gauges are just too complicated sometimes. I personally want a big *** tach on my dash and just a few gauges that I can't live without on track. And I want to be able to see them while sun is shining on them without having to look twice. Now that is hard to achieve when you are working with a digital gauge unless you spend a pretty penny on super high contract screen.

I don't have one to mess around with or take dimensions of, but how dumb would it be to hack up a netbook and rig the display up in the dash? Running the TS gauges or something.

That's pretty much what I have in mind for V2, a big analog tacho on the left and an LCD on the right, with all the little details.
