  • Bright Green Light!

    Someone had mentioned the green light being to bright. I thought so too at night...but I like to see it on. I tried something that worked well and you may want to also. I took some electrical tape and used a hole punch to make a small hole in the center of the tape. The I just placed it over the lens and it worked great.

        I put a few coats of black fingernail polish over mine. Kept adding more until I hit the right shade. I may strip it off and get a tiny piece of window tint for it....

          This really was a pick your poison here. Incandescent lights that are easy to adjust in brightness just didn't last long There are 2 options for the LED versions, either standard, or super bright. The standard can't be seen during the day, and are perfect at night, the supoer bright are perfect for the day, but bright at night. So we decided that it is easier to tone down something that is too bright over trying to make a weak light brighter. Down the road as our technology develops, we wll eventually be able to tie the lights into the Dim function on the headlights, or maybe even add our own daylight sensor to control brightness. But for now, takes Snakes advice ad add some black polish to the back of the switch to tailer it to your exact needs. :cheers:

            Snake,

            Do we want to know where you got the black nail polish? I'm not judging

                I thought they were onions

                I taped a piece of paper over my light; it's fine in all situations and much easier to remove than nail polish - I would assume

                  I must have the standard version because mine is harder to see durning the daytime but perfect at night. Never really gave it much thought but works fine for me.

                    I guess I've got the standard version as well. I can see it during the day (unless the sun shines directly on it) and it's not too bad at night either.

                    But, I do have mine down below the dash, so that might have make some difference.

                          My switches are over towards the passenger side a bit, so it doesn't bother me all that much. My girlfriend doesn't care for it, but I told her to either deal with it or we can drive her car with her gas

                            How is the system working out for you Drew and have you had an opportunity to show it off at drag events? How is your season going? Cheers

                              I've had a ton of interest at the 2 that I've been to since I've installed the V3, and as a matter of fact I'm heading down to Bowling Green Kentucky tomorrow for the last race of the season. I've got one of the head editors of the magazine that covers our series VERY interested in the setup to the point where he might do a feature article on my setup for one of the "off season" months.

                              If you guys have some business cards or marketing flyers that I can hand out at the events, that would work out well I would think.

                              thanks again for helping me make it to the races!
