    Lookin' good!!!

    You must have the exhaust running through the cabin to get 179 inside temp...just kidding.

    I like the layout, nice and clean, no clutter.
    Thanks,

    Thanks. Yeah, I was sweating my a@# off! The whole thing is going to need three FB's as I'm leaving empty jumpered ports ahead of variable inputs. I only have one at the moment. Many of the gauges are double mapped.

    Will your tach turn red when you hit the redline? That's a nice big tach, easy to monitor so you can keep all the parts inside the motor.
    Thanks,

    No, I didn't bother with that on this third screen. What I have seen in actual use is that this is not fast or precise enough for racing. I'll get a dedicated shift light (and odometer) as well as rely on the PCM rev limiter for those situations.

    Dash in action

    I've posted a video on YouTube. Sorry about the crappy quality.

    Very nicely done. What language are you using to program it, and how are the skins setup? Is this multi-monitor capable?

    Looks like new... Wanna know why they call me "Crash"?

    Thank you. Looks even better in person. I'm happy with the function. My images could use some more polish. The software is 2k1Toaster's MDX Configurator he developed for the Fusion Brain. Icon driven, drag and drop stuff. Lots of multi-images.

    I don't think it can drive separate windows, but in can talk to other front ends through COMS. I plan to have the MDX as seen mounted in the dash, with a second monitor running Ride Runner with a little cross talk between them. I have to learn RR skinning now.
