I can't post a screenshot now, but I just have the old style thick rectangular white gauge "needles", not the textured fine needles that I see in the screenshots here. I only have those needles in the Ferrari cockpit, the rest is still old style.

Using the very high detail inner-front wheel/tires that Thomas included with his recent Honda RA300 update (with the inner-front wheel made transparent by Orpheus) I've made the remaining wheel/tires for the inner-rear, outer-rear and outer-fronts in a reduced resolution for performance sake.

Nicolas go here to remove the red limiter on the Honda  http://srmz.net/inde...showtopic=10152

For what it concerns the rpm needle, everyone of us has the simple white texture. The Ferrari is the only car I am aware of that has also a specific needle. My Honda uses the simple white texture ;)

I rechecked your screenshots, you're right! I was mistaken. :) OK, so I don't have something wrong with my Honda. Thanks for your patience. :)

We have been deprived since  GPL birth, from good and usable Honda RA 273/ RA 300 historical cockpit details.

  Thks to Mr Joe Honda marvellous softbound books, here it is. How John Surtees could see from his Italian GP. Let's hope that is the definitive reference.

- the oil pressure gauge is graded to 25 psi, and not to 60, as it is with those refurbished Honda  dashboard, from the Honda Museum.  Seems Eric Broadley simply used the one installed on the RA 273, graded to 25.

- As says Leon for the red overevving mark : don't seems there was one on the RA 300 and the RA 273 after checking a few period pics at different races, but maybe that is a GPL  thing we want.

  We were in doubt about the steering axle screws. Light alloy looks correct.

The dashboard shot attached from Gianfranco or Remy, I think , looks correct apart the oil pressure.Some cable on the left  can be added, for the realism maniacs !

looking again at the large Monza dashboard,symetry wasn 't perfect. The oil pressure was installed quite in contact with the central  RPM gauge.The water temp gauge not. A tiny difference with GPL version.

and we have the numbers wrong for the gauge on the right. It is graded from 0 to 100, but in RL, was from 0-10-20-30-40-50-60 .
