It seems ideas at Honda are applied to other racing venues
Was watching an F1 video by McLaren noticed something a bit familiar.
This is a photo of the instrument panel from Aryton Senna's McLaren-Honda MP4/4 turbo car from 1988.
If you look near the top, you'll notice the tach, which bears a passing resemblance to the RC51 tach design.
From my own perspective, the RC51 LCD tach is great piece of work, simple, effective.
