HUD 2.0 or 3.0 now? Vette's got the 1.0.

Either way, I'm game. I could use it.. as long as it doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

Support MC.com peoples.. $9 bucks. Timmy needs to get that wheelchair into the 10s!

i wonder how it would work in snow storms

there have been more then a few storms here where i've been in 4wd, doing 30km/hour down the road bouncing from rumble strip to rumble strip cuz you can't see sh*t

be nice if it does go into production that they would make something adaptable for other/older models

welcome to alberta we eat cow, drill oil and rope calves

wants to push you down a flight of stairs to see if you are like a slinky or if you bounce like a ball... either way, I am quite sure I will be amused

They should use a really high quality GPS to locate to with a few inches, integrate Googlemaps streetview, use thermal optics to spot objects, then project a nice sunny California day on the inside of the windshield as your driving even if it's raining, foggy, snowing outside
