Function and flair is finally available from Racepak on street builds. A fully functional dash display will add brilliance to any custom dash build — and the company has also introduced a racing heart monitor for when all this takes your breath away.
“IQ 3 Street dash was introduced last year at SEMA but has really caught on,” said Chris Vopat, Marketing Manager. “Many people have been trying to modify the IQ3 Race dash to work in a road car so we made the modifications easier.”
The IQ3S displays speed and engine functions, and has standard road vehicle indicators such as fuel level, turn signals, high beam, parking brake and time of day. It can connect to Racepak’s GPS module. The IQ3S’ built-in processing is compatible, out of the box, with 20 aftermarket EFI and ECU systems and OBD-II, and is compatible with all Racepak’s data recorders.
The racing version of the IQ3 dash display and data logger has programmable shift lights, warning lights and a two axis G-meter. Road racing versions have GPS but drag racing versions do not have GPS as it is outlawed in most classes.
