Got my auto-blip in yesterday! Install was pretty easy. After calibration it worked flawlessly! Cant wait to test it out on the track!

In the one photo, the C7 Z06 was giving you a wave by. Did that mean you were faster than him?

Would you mind describing the installation and calibration in a bit more detail? I don't want to bother you for a complete breakdown, just a general idea of how hard it was to find and link to the sensors and then to go through the calibration process. Thanks.

Yes on the track if someone is faster behind you you give a point by.

So installation is just tapping into signal wired on each the gas, brake and clutch pedal. Then one tap on a obd power wire. Its pretty simple.

The calibration is just as simple. once in calibration mode you just hold each pedal down and release while pressing the on/off button. Literally takes 1 minute.

Have only been able to drive it on the streets lately but This weekend I get to get on the track finally!

So wrapping is kinda difficult. Laying it flat and tight to start is key. Also a heat gun is a must. prep is very important otherwise all you hard work will not last the first wash. I would start with something small with curves and learn how to heat up the wrap to get it around the curves and edges. Watch some youtube videos and you be ok

Much appreciated. I'm pretty sure an Auto-Blip is in my future. Good luck out there on the track.
