If you position those lights vertically on top of the dash so they reflect on the windshield, you'll have a "Heads-Up" display so you won't even have to take your eyes off the track.

If you attach the wires to the jewels there would be 0 delay in reacting to the signal. grin

That tends to cause the throttle to be jammed full open, though.  tongue

True Dat. We are to the point on Amy's car that the lights are getting put on during our down time so that all she has to look at is the big tach, big speedo (She'still working on her licensing) and the track.

Not sure if your running or interested in a knock sensor Wayno.
Detonation is the surest way to kill a motor IMHO and with a bit happening, the motor behind me with tanks and stuff between it and my ears I want something visual.

This is what I've bought for mine; http://www.viatrack.ca/

I haven't used it so cannot say if it is reliable or not, I was also given the schematics to build one by the guy I bought my dyno off.
