    +1. I'm confident he will stay around even without a ZHP.

    I started playing around with this little bugger. Fun seeing how the temps/pressures change with some aggressive maneuvering.

    , can you take a pic of your car from further away just to see how big the exterior sensors are, if they even make a difference with the size. And what is your thought too with their size?

    I miss my TPMS from the ZHP. Mine were inside the wheels which made them more permanent but I like the exterior option.

    Bruh there ain't no way around it these things is goofy af





    If they work out well then I'll pick up a set of the internal sensors because (1) they'd look less stupid and (2) they'd get a more accurate temperature reading than at the end of the valve stem.

    The good thing is that pressure is pressure so these sensors on the end of the valve stem is going to be just as accurate as something internal.

    Where are you planning on keeping the gauge itself?

    I've had this style of sensor before. Not only were they inaccurate, more than one sensor would consistently not even register a pressure reading (random ones, not always the same sensors). The final straw was when two of them had to get surgically removed because they seized to the valve stem.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    Bedded my brakes and virtually eliminated my vibration issue. That’s the second time that’s worked for me.

    I had this once so far as well for my Stoptech kit. I had washed the car, and left the car in the garage for a week. Had to bed and problem solved.

    Stoptech street performance pads? That's what I had to do with mine. They're an aggressive compound and you have to regularly remember to rebed them like every month or so, or else you get pulsing brakes. I liked those pads because they were low dust and stopped great and no squeaks at all, but I hated having to rebed them all the time.

    I'm on a set of Hawk street pads now, thinking they'd swap well to my hawk track pads and back without needing to rebed, and they do, but even the hawk street pads are squeaky. Not as bad as the race pads, lol, but still, they give me some squeak at lower speeds when I'm mall crawling and idling through town

    Not sure yet. It fits perfectly right in front of the cluster, only blocking the clock/odometer spot. So good that it doesn't block any warning lights but I like my clock

    I've been keeping it in the ash tray slot where it would probably be fine since it's not data that you really need in front of your face. They do have some styles that mount up on the windshield...

    Note to self: swap the regular caps back on in winter

    They've been fine so far. I was just reading through the broken English in the manual and there's something about them not sending a signal when the car is stopped/under 20kmph. I had turned the receiver off yesterday and fired it up this morning. Took like 1-2 minutes for the first sensor to connect (LR):



    Then 2 minutes later they were all connected:



    And evened out by the time I got to work (10 minute commute):



    I can't find anything about how often they sample, but it's certainly not quick
