I agree with everyone else. Even a "peak hold" feature would be nice for the boost gauge.

And the most important gauge the oil pressure gauge has really low visibility.

Oh for Chrissakes, I have never heard so much whining. The car will give you a code if anything goes wrong, Oil pressure, voltage, oil temp, trans temp, coolent temp, a million other things. What are you guys going to do, shut er down the second your trans temp gets to what temp?

...all good points....agreed, they are good to look at during warmup or while idling somewhere...where you can let your mind wander as to whats happenning with your ride. The boost gauge is a no go though...unncessary.

What we need is spell check. It's coolAnt, not coolEnt. Thanks for posting.

I agree, and I do watch the oil temp. gauge before gettin' stoopid.

Like ZZZL1 said Danger Danger Will Robinson.
Well, most tracks have a "rest" straight and if you know where you want to look already, not hunting for the info., you can see it at a glance.

Better yet, you can get your HUD customized to show any sensors. I think you have to have someone with a programmer do it.
