    That is a stack display you have pictured there, I believe, or it is a clone of a stack.

    I still can't understand what the advantage is to doubling the meters and gauges in a car, but, I understand that people might want to do it.

    I REALLY want a stack in my ride, but will remove the stock gauge, assuming the race car has a stock gauge

    EDIT: I Guess the OP did not want a stand alone, my bad.

    Not a Stack, but similar. The unit I pic'd can be used stand alone, or as a data aquisition/logger.

    Pricey either way. But, damn that is cool as hell. Wish my dash looked F1

    We people are different. I personaly never understand why somebody build an amplifier in the car with more than 30W. But I allow them

    In this case I like the idea to have ALL the info in the computer and I can handle them as I like. If I prefer the digital speedometer, why I have to stare at an analogous one? Besides I think it is in the wrong place, I prefer the speedometer over the top line of the dashboard. It is more comfortable to my eyes, I have tried. Good guys at FIAT give more respect to that stupid 'the speedometer MUST BE on the other side of the wheel' tradition.
    And because many other people think so, I should not remove it. THEREFORE I have double gauges, for example.

    I am planning to remove my stock guages and install speakers up in the front with my guages sitting in the center where the a/c control is.

    Here's the setup I've put together for my race car



    and




    Data comes direct from the ECU, data logger and LabJack U3, currently has 11 screens selectable via 12 way rotary switch and a few buttons (no longer on the steering wheel!) 3 screens for road, 3 for racing and the remainder for diagnostics and configuration.

    The screens shown have been updated slightly since the photo's were taken 6 months ago.

    I've written all the software myself in Delphi 7, running on XPe. Boot time is 28 seconds including BIOS startup - it takes longer to put the harnesses on

    Looks realy realy great!!!
    I'm using Delphi 7 myself to write my own frontend. I already found the hardware components for my OBDII interface but I still need to write the software, what components did you use? Or are these also homemade?
