Digatron builds digital gauges for racers. They have some really neat stuff that is cost effective in relation to recall tachs and autometer guages.... You can check out their web site at

They want us to give them some feedback on digital guages that they might be able to make for us racers at an affordable price. They were looking for all of our input on this.
I know that IMCA's rules state that you can not use digital guages, but for all of the other guys that are not running IMCA and if your running Non-Sanctioned stuff like a lot of us are running, then it may be legal.

The target of this is to try to get Digatron to mass produce a part for us that will cost us less than what we are currently paying for a good recall tach and guages. I hope you will take a look at their site at and email them at with some feedback.

Thanks for your participation.

A guy I work with runs karts and Digitron makes gauges for them with tach.and temp.I think he said they run 350 dollars and they are very small to fit on a kart,I think they would be very pricey upsized.

What they are looking for is a template to go by to make them more price efficient. If everyone can give them input and ideas, maybe they could manufacture something that would be less than the current normal guages and tach we normally use.

You guys should all take a closer look at Digatrons stuff.

One thing their Digatal guages offer that analog guages don't is the ability to take "snapshots" of all of guages 3 times during any run. You push the record button and it records everything from that moment. No more guessing about what your fuel pressure is at the end of the straitaway, your oil pressure in the middle of the turn, your RPM's coming out of the turn. It also records the mins and maxs for each run as well.

Your Guage set can include oil & water temps, oil and fuel pressure, exhaust gas tempetures RPMs and others.
You program in the temps and pressures that you want your remote mountable "over limit" light to go off at.

The unit I am describing is soon to be replaced with a newer design that I believe holds more memory. I imagine they are looking for input that will help to shape this new product.

Seldom have I had the pleasure of doing business with a company that is more interested in making their product fit my needs. As a matter of fact right now they are customizing my model #DT-35Ri.

These are Really good people that are very commited to making a great product that best suits the needs of their customers.

Digatron here, ready for your input. To date I have had conversations with two racers. Thanks for the positive input Chris and also Scott in Canada.
Digatron has been in business making digital instruments since 1974. Digatron instruments provide racers with accurate information on their tach, mph, temperatures and pressures. Our instruments provide overlimit warnings, maximum readings and three stored readings. The new lines, just being released, now datalog all readings and play them back. We have a system of 8 LED's that can be set as warning or shift lights. You can also download information to a P.C. For our current markets of karting and snowmobile, the price range is $160 to $490.00. We vow to produce a quality instrument for an affordable price.
I am looking forward to continued feedback. I will check back in or you can email me at

Happy Holidays
