I'd imagine that will improve the clarity a bit. It looks pretty good as is.

Hmmm... I didn't even think about that. You're dead on! I was only worried about premature wear of the motor and both sides of the usb connectors.

I figured that is what you where thinking with vibration. Does it pick up the time through the USB connection on the PC?

Well, that's a matter of opinion I suppose. I'm OK with the mechanical tweaks but the cosmetic design language went from classic modern sports car to too much boy racer for me.

I won't pretend to speak for @Tcoat but my impression of his posts is he fills similarly, so it would still be "nope".

That would be the shit. Nah, but setting the clock is part of the fun. Clock speeds up 60x when you hold the button.

i think the most timeless gauge is an analog tach with a digital speedo readout in it. its really just the most perfect layout,

in the bike world, bmw changed to a full digital display from an analog tach for the 2020 s1000rr. its purely aesthetic, but the forums over there werent too happy either. it might surprise you that the frs cluster and s1000rr cluster are essentially identical

I will likely too out of curiosity. I should bring my hammered car along and tell them I am interested in trading. It should be stripped and caged by then

Depending on what time of day it was. I was either two exits north, or the next one south from the end of the video. Should have waved.

Prolly wouldn't have seen you. I keep my eyes up on the horizon.

Depending on where you share this video, some subset of owners are cringing because you're revving the car way too high.

Got a Honda today.

After turning down the first few offers, their Final offer was 9k for my FR-S. We could not come to an agreement on my trade value, so I still have my car. Anyway, I didn't really want to trade, but if they had offered me enough... Idk... I am rambling a bit now...

2019 sport with 9k miles - clean title.

If you listen carefully you can hear the oil pump cavitating.
