Two Raptor shift lights.

One I have set at 5500 rpm, and another at 6300 rpm.

I more often than not, shift at 5500 rpm, but at the track, and when required.....

And b/c of the darkened part of the windshield, the lights are nearly undetectable form the outside.

I have the Harlan...it's set at 6200...I have my red-line at 6800...plenty of time to shift. You can't see it from the outside and it works great. If you've seen the video on HPD...you know how it looks when it's on. :coo:

Did you screw the raptor bracket to the A-pillar or velcro?

FYI I tried velco and double sided tape for my Raptor, with the A pillar being vinyl and not solid plastic it does not work well, the best thing to use is a small screw.... :thumb:

I've got mine on the pillar but down low near the dash. I have been thinking of putting it higher. Did you ever try it down low?

Drilled a small hole, and used a small nut & bolt.
I used two bolts, to hold it tight.
But not tight enough that I can't make small adjustments to the angle of the light.

Figured the pillar cover isn't expensive enough that replacing it would be a big deal..... :ity:

Mine's a Harlan, in a custom billet mount on the flat side of the A-pillar:

I have Nology's SSL-RS. For the ultimate HUD, I have them mounted inside my helmet !! They are operator programmable.

Installed the Raptor, on the steering column.

You can't miss it when it goes off!!

Steve,

I like the looks of your set up! Where did you get it, and how did you install the Raptor on the column (velcro?) What do you have it set at? Also, is it the red Raptor? Thanks.

Just curious but the HUD has a built in shift light right ? Is it crappy or what ? And what should it be set too ? I've hit the limiter a few times especially early on.

It is the (red) Raptor shift light. I got it from one of the vendors on the right, don't remember which one.

I actually used a small screw to mount the bracket on the column. Velcro would probably work. I have it set at 6600, but I also have my rev limiter reset to 6800.
