    Our goal wasn't making night rider cheesy look shiftlights that goes on with 800rpms but to make it as realistic and funcitonal as they should be.
    So we decided to take the rpms where engine torque starts to drop as a max, all seven LEDs starts to blink.
    Then with max-200rpm...5 green, yellow LED ligths on,
    with max-400rpm...all 5 green LEDs are on,
    with max-600rpm...4 green LEDs are on,
    ..
    with max-1200rpm...1 green LED is on.
    Below that no lightshow...
    The last video is just a demonstration of calibration...

    I expect that nobody cruises past 5k rpm mark :pimp:

    It can be done, but I don't think it is necessary

        OK, we decided to add a switch so you can use it to switch between day/night illumination.

        If you want to use it as on/off switch just set day illumination to lowest setting possible.

        You do realize that you will have to route to wires out of the cluster to your favorite switch position?

        Switch is an option, if you like it you use it, if you don't then there is no need to route wires etc...

        How does that sound?

              I'm in for these, when do you expect to start selling them?

              Going to take a guess that the third project is variable speed windshield wipers.

                I'm definitely interested, if the price is right. Been looking for a nice progressive shift light and the only ones that are somewhat appealing are the Shift-I from Ecliptech.

                  To me the switch seems like unnecessary clutter but as an owner of George's SI voltmeter I wouldn't be a potential customer. I just think sometimes with these types of pieces its better to keep it simple rather than appeal to every request.

                    The tests for the shiftlights are over. They work as we wished.
                    As we see there is some interest to buy the shiftlights we are ready to collect orders.

                    The price for one piece is $150 shipped worldwide, quote us for exotic locations.

                    We will accept PayPal payments only. Payment details will be send to you via PM when the boards are ready for shippment.
                    We expect this to be 2-3 weeks after the batch is full.
                    You have to understand that we're dependent on our parts supliers.
