    Hi,

    I am new to this forum (at list for posting) and I just want it to show my finish car-computer.
    First of all, I like to thanks everybody on this forum for all the information, software and suggestions I was able to obtain.
    I actually finish this project almost a year ago and it is working pretty well, at list for my needs.
    You can check it out on my site dedicated to Laforza and Magnum 4x4 from Rayton Fissore. (Under carcomputer)
    My car it is an Italian off-road that have been designed 20 years ago.

    The original design it is from Tom Tjiarda and have been created in 1983-4.
    First production was 1985. The design was practically retain identical untill 1999-2000.
    Only about 950 in USA since 89 and 3600 in total.
    Thanks again to everybody on this forum for all the help and answer I found

    I checked it out before it ranout of bandwidth, looked very nice. Quite an unusual car to have it in as well.
    I have found you an argument; I am not obliged to find you an understanding.

    Thanks rushnrockt and everybody else,
    Next one is going to be with out the head unit, a more powerful cpu and attached directly to an amplifier. So that the screen will be in the center maybe bigger.

    wasn't that the SUV that was designed by a guy at Ferrari?

    I considered buying one once, but decided not to because of lack of replacement/maintenance parts in the US due to being so rare here. there was an article about it which said it was the first (and only?) vehicle to ever crash THROUGH THE WALL during federal crash testing.

    Yes the frame and the over all body it is very strong. I personally have seen the original Magnum 4x4 that have been used for the crash test (CSI) and the passenger cell was completely intact. I do not know if went trough the barrier or it is just a myth but it is a 4ton frame and the weight of the car it is around 7000 pounds with a full tank and the driver.
    The spare parts are not hard to get also because the engine (with all related accessories) transmission and transfer case are American. The Frame is from a military truck, the IVECO (VM 90 4x4) so all the parts related (suspensions, differentials, stabilizer bars etc.) are also not difficult to get. The only parts that are a little more rare are the body and interior parts but there are several sources in Italy and in USA as well.
    I use mine as a daily driver and never let me down since 4 years and 90000miles.

    Ciao
