I wonder if it's refresh rate is quick. Mine is instantaneous...can't say that for the Tiny Tachs.

They've had that tach for some time now..someone on here has it..they say it works good, but i dont think it has the quickness of Kens.

Hey ken..you should see if you can get a short vid clip of the tach..jsut at idle and reving, just to show how quick it goes..

I can post a video of mine once a get it. But for that to happen I have to ORDER it first. And for that to happen I'm waiting on a paycheck. :)

Scott, you read my mind. I need a clip not only of idling, but running through the gears. I had the machine up to the far reaches of civilization, da folk's farm in Roseau, MN. Against the pitch black night they watched as my helmet and goggle lit up every time I hit 8200 rpm. Like I've said before, you can adjust the brightness....it's just that I didn't want to. :D I"ll research getting some video, when this silly season of mine is over.

Ken...does it work well for woods and MX riding? I could see it be used for those people that run sand drags and the like. Just curious...maybe I could squarl some money away from my wife to get one.

It will work good for woods racing too, because you never have to take your eyes off the trail to know that you've reached the rpm you wanted to be your max shift point. I initially had it on the bars with the little bracket that it comes with...not the intended mount. That was a bit awkward. Now with it above the Trailtech speedo, it's clearly in your periperal vision. :D

I wish I was better at electronics, I bet modquad setup could be rig up to display the rpms all the time. It does sound sweet though.

Also predatorizer can'nt wait to hear how that tach works, how much is it thanks

Display the RPM's all the time? what do you mean..the tach does show constant RPMs...he jsut means it will tell you what your high RPM is..thats just a feature..it works like a normal tach..

I thought, or at least the way I read it, that it only displayed the rpm setting when you hit your shift point or your max rpm. If it's constant then I need one (like back in FEBRUARY) Thanks

Yeah..now i could be wrong, but Ken will set it straight. But yeah, no its just like a normal tach, shows your constant RPM, but when you get to the desired shift point, it will light up. Have you seen the pictures of it yet? Quite nice looking! The digital display is in the middle with the shift light LED's surrounding it. But it does have the feature of going back and looking what your max RPM was..say yoru dragging and want to know if you shifted to late on that run, well you could go back and see that the light was set for 8200 but you shifted at 8600..

If Ken would get off his lazy ass and get us a vid..;) JK ken..i know how busy you are! ;)

Yup, you guys are correct. It displays the rpm's at all times in the center of the LED's. You can shut that tach off though, and just rely on the LED's for shifting, yet still hit a button after your run and display your max rpm. These guys packed a lot of features into a compact, and durable unit. I'm working on a digital video clip.
