1. SWITCH BOX
Ten toggle switches control everything from Gordon's helmet fan
to the engine's ignition; extenders put them within reach.
2. REV METER
When the engine rpm reading hits 8,800, a light comes on to let
Gordon know he's running at the engine's designed limit.
3. INSTRUMENT PANEL
Some of the instruments in Gordon's Monte Carlo are tilted
sideways so that their needles are easier for him to see. The
voltmeter (A) measures battery power; the tachometer (B)
indicates engine rpm, which is in the 8,000-to-9,000 range
during a race; water temperature (C) should read around
210 degrees; engine oil pressure (D) should be 70 psi, and oil
temperature (E) should stay between 220 degrees and
230 degrees; there's no needle that points to "E" when Gordon
needs gasif the fuel-pressure gauge (F) drops to 5 psi, it's
time for a pit stop. The master cutoff switch (G) instantly
kills the vehicle's electrical power.
