Sorry to hear you have been having trouble with your Fitech. I didn't have much trouble with the Super Sniper. The only trouble I have had has been factory timing table was a little wonky and the first hand held controller was finicky.

so there i was digging around on dakota digitals website looking at the hdx gauges and the gear shift sensor thing and i came across the rtx cluster they just introduced and decided this needed to be in my car. the gages bluetooth to a phone app as well, i intend to put my phone one one of the suction cup mounts like my fitech unit so i can watch more stuff as well without looking down . kinda stoked to be the guinea pig on this the sales guy said i was buying the first set of these.

ought to start hanging parts on this pig next week start getting the brakes, and all the other junk ive been ranting about in the last few pages and ill start getting more actual instal pics posted.

ive always wanted the tach with the clock in it never could find a working one so this will do just fine

the stack so far, more should arrive by the weekend.
fender to core support braces, behind the seat braces, the vette brakes and skf x tracker bearings putting the old f41 grand prix bars back on after doing a little hammer modifying to make them clear the hotchkis sway bar dual button shift handle for that b&m for the line lock and nitrous that i will get soon enough. and a heat sleeve for the shifter cable that will likely be right next to the exhaust hawk hp plus pads for the vette brakes.

also, i downloaded the dakota digital app for my cluster and was looking thru the app to get familiar with it, hopefully they update it so i can turn my phone sideways and have it rotate and give the ability to add a background picture, i emailed em to see if they had considered that.
