What is a Tachometer?

The tachometer is an instrument that measures the rotation speed of the shaft or disk, as in the case of a motor or other machine. The device usually displays revolutions per minute (RPM) on a calibrated analog dial, but digital displays are increasingly common.

Each internal combustion engine has a powerband that stands for the RPM range within which it operates most efficiently. If you drive a vehicle with an automatic transmission, this power band is maintained by the transmission that shifts gears to keep the engine running smoothly. In the case of a manual transmission, that is entirely your responsibility. To effectively shift, the only things you can rely on are your driving experience, and we're offering tachometers and shift lights that will always give you a real-time RPM and give you a clue when it's time to change gear.

Custom Tachometers

These tachometers are designed with the best materials and advanced features to tell you how fast your engine is revolving. So, whether you're gearing up for another buoyant round on the track or just trying to find a replacement for that factory tachometer, Vivid Racing has everything you need.

Return your engine and read those RPMs easily when you equip your vehicle with one of Vivid Racing's premium tachometers. It's essential to either upgrade your tachometer and make sure it's working correctly since running your engine at excessively high RPM rates could dramatically shorten its lifespan. Aftermarket tachometers can benefit both drag racers and day-to-day drivers by providing better visibility. Some of our tachometers even have shift lights built into them, which can be programmed to your optimum shift points for peak performance during your next race.
