what 3 gauges would people put in there??
VOLT, WATER TEMP and OIL PRES or TEMP ?
is it really necessary to have any three combination of either of these four???
When was the last time you skipped four years maint on your '2000 Japanese designed automobile - and needed to know if your water temp was too hot because you have low fluid or the antifreeze was not mixed properly (or instead, water was only added).
When was the last time you were involved in a 10 second STREET RACE (because I'm sure less than 5% reading this thread actually do Auto-X) and you were about to blow your engine because your oil pressure was too high.
And what about the other two gauges that cannot be installed to your gauge pillar... the MONSTER SIZED tach (because the one currently installed isnt good enough) and the shift-light.
I'm sure you could also get a Turbo and BOOST or NITRO gauge as well - but chances are, you probably don't have these actually hooked-up inside your car.
And what about that voltmeter - obviously you would need this if you have all sorts of electronics installed - but then if you had all these stereo/game systems installed - you wouldn't be racing your car... unless of course the other two gauges were used because you've added an extra 2,000lbs of "entertainment" gear to your car - or your towing more than the maximum recommended tow amount (2,000lbs)
i guess some people do stuff just because they can... yeah sure, I like all the pretty lights and colors too - at Christmas
don't get me wrong - I'm all for innovation... but is a three gauge pod pillar really necessary????
