    Question about Vehicle Information

    Ok so what information would you want to view about your vehicle (Race car or not) if you were racing on a track (circuit not drag) or anywhere. I figured out that Speed, RPM, Fuel level and Current Gear.

    Oil Temp, Oil Pressure, Water Temp, Boost (if turbo'ed), Tranny Temp, Fuel Pressure, Exaust Temp (EGT), Voltage, etc. Basically anything and everything they make gauges for. Check www.autometer.com for one set of examples...

    If this is just something for you to see while racing, then only put on what you will use. Having a bunch of crap that you dont care about is rather useless and clutters the screen.

    So if you only care about Speed, RPM, Fuel, and Gear, then just display those.
