    After that , i think to create a button box for more data that is not so important to be in wheel.As i mod the button box i decide to use another one TM1638 lcd for show there the "secondary" informations.

    THE BUTTON BOX

    You can powered the gear indicator with USB Cable directly from PC USB port.I use a simple use cable,cut the end and i solder + and - cables to a male-female adapter and i powered the gear indicator.

    Hello ,

    all dash is design by me and it is 3D printed.So it is perfect in T500RS wheel.Noone of shifters hits the dash.
