    revlimiter Gauges - FOR NC!!

    After being on the back burner for around four years and in active development for the past eight months, NC gauges finally exist!!

    Hit my store to see them. I've got five designs to kick things off with. And I'll spoil them below because I'm so proud.


    Warbird


    NC1 manual


    in automatic form


    And NC2/3 form!


    Each gauge has a bunch of possible permutations. You have the three "generations", different faces depending on the transmission, and various speed scales used throughout the world. It makes NC gauges a big job.


    Sunstorm




    The big challenge was getting the indicator and warning lights right. The NC cluster has extremely dim LEDs generating all of the light. It took me quite a lot of work and prototyping to make a warning light that was visible in the daytime.

    But I did it!


    Stirling




    The cluster is also extremely confined. The various warning lights and automatic transmission guts remove a lot of design options. The amber/red LED lighting further limits things. You can't just order a gauge face and change the lighting color. You have to unsolder and resolder tiny LEDs to do that.

    But I made it work.

    JNC


    and

    Spyder


    I've got the Spyder gauges in my own NC right now. They feel... perfect.




    If you want to read more about the NC gauges, hit my blog. If you'd like to get a set for your own NC, they're in stock and ready for ordering in the store.

    Sorry for the delay on these, NC folks. I hope it was worth the wait!

    I've got a lot less horsepower - luckily they are Japanese horses - usually in better shape and more motivated.

    Bravo! Good to see you were able to incorporate the PRNDL for auto cars. I'm sure that complicated things a bit. As always though, your work stands out as top tier quality.

    Good deal and looks good! I don't have a NC but most of our Miata Club does and I'll pass it along.

    Heh. I've only done one auto set so far. But it actually wasn't too bad! The little arrows for the NC1 PRNDL have to be almost completely translucent. The rest is pretty simple. I was amazed at how nice it looked on the Warbird design.

    I did that set the day before launching the NC gauges. I realized I'd forgotten about the auto designs. lol

    They look so INCREDIBLE! As usual! I love how the NC gauges have that independent gauge look from the factory.

    So I don't see this addressed or I missed it but are different zero positions possible?

    In-cred-bile!! Never surprised by how you always raise the bar but holy cow, those look so good I'd pretty much give the rest of the NC bits I don't like a pass. Amazing work as always Adam!!!

    Please use the form in my store for custom orders. It's linked on every gauge page.
    Thanks
