I could and would use your help, if you lived closer... the next 15 days we will be working as much as possible to get it done.  I am slammed at my day job, so I can't get free to help  Larry as much as I need and want to.

Great work, Charles. I'll bet you will not have any trouble in tech and I hope you will not have the time to look at all those gauges, like when you are going real fast and watching the track.

Too much info for a bike guy. Last year I was looking at my tach, trying to figure out what my rpm was and ran off the track. :-o The factory tach lies almost as much as the spedo. :?

Charles,

If I could get next week off I would fly over to help you out, what better way for me to get some experience while I contemplate a project of my own.  But my assistant is off for a few weeks with a medical issue, and they don't like us both gone at the same time.  Besides, I've never been to North Carolina, I could do some sight seeing too.
