Too dull – 2" R.P.M. Tachometer for Vehicles (0~8000 RPM/DC 12V) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Cheap. Works OK. Nice and compact for someone that doesn't want a 'monster tach'.
Cons:
The smoke lens makes it too dark to see very well. OK at night but during the day the needle is very hard to see. Would be better with a clear lens. The mounting system it comes with is pretty useless. I just drilled a hole in my dashboard.
Other:
I'll probably try and remove the smoke lens off the front. That should make it much easier to see.
Bottomline:
Not really useful during the day but may be fixable by removing the dark-tinted lens.
