I'd like to expand on one point -- And for those that saw my last Prime Mover that I built .. Know that I like gadgets. And to this point - Gauges.
Ever since the inception of the RzR -- Many of us have sought out a variety of additonal gauges to add to the dash. Some gauges are singular - That being the display is for just one sensor. Then came along the Dakota Digital Display replacement for the origional Polaris cluster. This lasted 2 years until Polaris changed the Data archeture and Dakota Digital never updated.
Then - For some like me that installed the PCV -- Came the LCD-200. Great gauge but limited in scope for what could be.
All gauge installation - Has one other component to make function. Wires !!
Then there is the real estate for all those gauges.
I also asked a certain question many moons ago that envoked a remark from one astute member here -- And that was to be careful for what I wished for. I can now state -- My wish has FINALLY came true.
For my next build -- I wanted a digital dash. I've asked and looked at Professional Motorsports and looked at all there is. One name keeps coming back into focus. Racepak. Until now -- I was going to incorporate one into my build. But this isn't the route I wanted to go. I wanted to duplicate the setup I put together for my HEMI powered Jeep. But I lacked just one little component - On the ECM.
In looking at the spec's for the NEW "i" series Vi-Pec ....... What do I see -- Carefull as it's only 3 little letters -- Butt ...... YES -- There they are .. .. obd.
This -- Opens up a totally NEW World of possibilities. And unlike what I put together for my Jeep -- Technology has moved right along and there is a whole host of new features -- Just a quick few off the top of my head:
Drag Strip Times - 1/4 .. 1/8 Mile down to 300' Sand Drags
GPS, And so much more !!
And -- Back to Gauges.
I'll get right to the points -- Fully customizable in every sence of the word. Wires -- None. Display -- Any device that is ios - Android or PC compatable.
After being housebound for the past month due to a health issue and digging into the iv88 Series Vi-Pec -- I put together a display system and am testing it on my Jeep. Words cannot express ....
Yesterday I decided it was time to get out of the house and go to the shop and do a temp install on my Classic and evaluate the display -- Just some screens I had loaded to try and get the feel of what I might want to build to display some of the data available.
Remember -- There is not ONE wire that needs to be installed to achieve this. It's all wireless -- I've chosen to use BT. My other system in the Jeep I used WiFi. Both systems work flawlessly.
Here is a short video I put together that doesn't begin to scratch the surface as to what can be done.
Waiting to hear back from Vi-Pec as to my recent inquiry ........
Exciting Times .. ..
