What do you think??

At some point in the near future I'll be buying one of these tachs
Right now I have a Kidsun tinytach with a replaceable battery that is keeping tabs on my rpms and time. I have a digital speedo for a bicycle that I keep track of how fast and how far I'm going. I have the speedometer dialed in where it reads the correct speed confirmed by GPS and its clicks off a mile measured by our section lines. I've check both the distance and the speed a few times so I know its spot on. I want the tach for show and tell more so than feeling a need for it as my tinytach tells me what I need to know.

But I will be buying one of these tachs in the near future

Dave, you have any pics of that speedometer, and have you opened her up yet to see what she will do?

Now if Vegas Carts can get a SWAG department (some of us would like to proudly display our HP ) and Disc Brakes done before the end of the year they might just get that coveted Golf Cart Supplier of the Year Award.
on the Tach. VC to the rescue again providing a Quality part to fill a need.

Thank you Chris, looks very neat and clean. Now that I stretched my ride my Equus tach is for sale. Its sensor wire is too short. A new tachometer is in my future.

I apologize for not getting back with you sooner. This link is to the speedometer that I have on my cart. Its a Sigma Sport BC 5.12

No I haven't opened it up yet as it'll go faster than I feel comfortable traveling at. The fastest I've gone is 37 mph and it was above 5000 rpms. I'm thinking it was turning in the neighborhood of 5200 rpms. I'm thinking that my top speed at 6000 rpms will be in the low 40s. I'm 69 YO and a crash would do me in so I try to stay 30 mph and lower. Only on a smooth paved road at that. most of our roads that I can legally drive on around here are patches on patches, hardly what I want to go fast on

Ha, I am with you on keeping my distance from a crash lol. But some time you might find a smooth stretch and open it up more. I was getting at least 38 gps before I put the cam in, at around 5100, on 22s that were not low pressure. I have to change my pulse line setup before I try again it keeps puking a few drops of oil in there at high rpm. I have to order a tach of some kind and I have a bike speedo I can put on it.

I have a old school points tach from Drag Specialties I have to try before I order one of these from Vegas Carts. It drives my nuts when I have good parts but somebody makes what I have better. Gotta try it and see what happens.

So, I installed this tach per the instructions on my 670. I also utilized aircraft grade shielded wire grounded on both ends to reduce any interference. Tach works great at idle up to about 2000 RPM but gets bouncy from 2K up to 3800 RPM. Thoughts?
