Hello to all. Rumor has it this is the forum to belong to for some good information on these sweet machines. Looking forward to reading, writing and researching ....:tease:
evidently so is speaking honestly, so long as your opinion fallsAt some forums it appears that way.
Thank You! For the very kind words of courtesy and although I have noLatenite,
welcome to the site, you are my favorite online electrical engineer
and saved me a bunch of heartache on a little MOD i was looking at
for my challenger.
thank you again.
evidently so is speaking honestly, so long as your opinion falls
in line then you are good to go but deviate just a little even within the
TOS and POOF!!!! you just disappear.
Latenite,Thank You! For the very kind words of courtesy and although I have no
clue as to what I said in your case, I can only say that I try to relate to
those who I feel may not be informed as I in some technical ways.
What I try to help with with is what I feel is one of the most advanced
automobiles on the market today. There is more electronic sophistication
in the current model Challenger than the first Challenger Space Shuttle!
It is difficult for technically trained folks these days to keep up with new
technology, I can only imagine what a nightmare it must be for those
who are not technical inclined. This is why I try to contribute.
I do see good and bad on the different Forums I am a member of but I
will reserve my personal opinions to myself and concentrate on the car
I truly love the most...
sequential taillights and their overload on the challengers electrical system
you really hit the nail on the head with your explanation and almost
every site i am on there has been people that did it and have had
nothing but problems since.
while it looks cool to me it isn't worth trouble down the road
and i thank you for that post.
i think you should post your explanation as to why it isn't good in the
challenger knowledge base section
Well said. Being in the IT (Information Technology) field, I often need to explain that it isn't always wise to implement new technology for the sake of implementing new technology.... just because you can do a mod, does not always mean you should.
Ahhhh yes, the Sequential taillight mod and its following. Well I did make
an attempt to bring to the table some information that just because you
can do a mod, does not always mean you should. Yes, trick taillights are
"sick" and awesome-cool but as with any modification, electrical or otherwise,
there can be a down side.
Being in the business of building/supplying these types of lighting systems
for the past 12 years, I had to make a choice if I was going to continue on
and make a "plug'n'play" for Challengers, as it was possible to do but there
was a catch. Electrical capacities were going to be pushed out to meet or
exceed design specifications (100% increase or greater) unless you went
with LED and actually produced a system that was close to original power
requirements. That would push the cost up and complexity and in turn
reduce margins and it still would not prevent Joe Hamfist from modifying
the system again or in the process of installing it, goof up a "plug-n-play"
How is that possible you say? Well if you deal with the public for any extended
length of time, you will find that quite possible indeed. Murphy is quite alive
and well and living in the public among us.
With the architecture of the TIPM and being a critical network component
as well as multifunction electrical supply unit, its replacement cost is in the
hundreds of dollars (typically $800-$900 w/software).
Anyway, I did not want to go off on a lecture here as a newbee as I want
to lend whatever expertise I have to those who need advice from time to
Happy Modding Everyone!
