Racepak Dash Project Continues – Dave Serves up the Booyah

25 Jul

A few months ago I posted about the new Racepak IQ3 cluster I picked up here . Dave, our friend and stereo installer to the stars, just sent me over some pics of the progress he has made on my Racepak. He knows me and my tastes, and as such, this is Ivory clean. I’ll post up some more pics when it’s all done.

Project Z33 Continues

4 Feb

Some more new stuff arrived today for my car.  Thank god there is snow on the ground – gives me time to get all this stuff operational!  This new toy is going to be a bit of a chore to install and setup exactly like I want it, but I’m really looking forward to the final result.

I posted about this about a month or so ago.  It really is an amazing piece of equipment and the potential is simply awesome.  Since my car is used primarily for street, I opted for the standard display only model.  There is another version that datalogs, and it’s possibilities are nearly limitless.  You could moniter shock travel, clutch slip, etc etc.  But that’s a bit over the top for my needs, so this will do.  This will connect to my Haltech 350Z Platinum ecu via the supplied plug and play cable, and I will set it up to display rpm, speed, fuel level, afr, oil temperature, coolant temp, and odometer.  However, through the CAN network, it can pass through all sorts of info such as fuel pressure, fuel trim, TPS – basically anything that is part of the OBD2!  Really slick piece, and at $700, it sure beats having a ton of different gauges scattered throughout the car.    Next thing to do is getting it to my installer guru Dave, so he can fabricate me a proper housing to make this thing look like it came with the car!

Paradise by the Dashboard Light

Just got these in and they are hot!! For all you Haltech E8, EV12, and Platinum users, this is what I’d call a “must have”. Racepak and Haltech have now teamed up to make a plug and play configurable dash solution. All the cool features you have come to expect from Racetech, but in a more cost effective package.

This comes in 2 versions – one with datalogging and one without

The IQ3 dash represents an entirely new concept in data logging dashes. This uses Racepak’s exclusive smart sensor type, that means that only one small cable will transmit the data from all the sensors to the rear of the dash. For the customer, this means no bulky, heavy sensor wiring harness. All sensors transmit their data through a single cable (Vnet) which is routed to the rear of the dash. This eliminates the need for a sensor harness, greatly reducing installation time, complexity and overall weight.

The programmable shift lights are protected from sunlight by a molded shield above the lights, while the low glare LCD display is well recessed in the housing in order to provide viewing in all light conditions.

– 32 Channels
