Illegal Garage’s Alumacobra Switch Install

We just received a great video from a local customer building a Factory Five Roadster.  Jose G. has been building this car for a few years and he’s wiring it with our Infinitybox system.  He is installing our 20-Circuit Kit with inLINKThis link will take you to an earlier blog post covering his progress.

He has a very slick and elegant aluminum dash that has modular panels.  He can easily remove and install panels for his switches and gauges.  It would certainly make working on the dash very easy.  Jose was recently at the London Cobra show in Ohio and saw a new set of switches he wanted to integrate into his dash.  These are nice looking billet buttons and he wants to use them for his lights, fans, wipers, fuel pump and one-button start.  These buttons are from Billet Automotive Buttons in Australia.  Installing these buttons shows the simplicity and the ease of wiring your car with our Infinitybox system.

First, our MASTERCELL inputs are ground triggered.  This gives you a lot of flexibility of how you can wire your switches.  This simple diagram shows how you wire a MASTERCELL input to your switch.

Another significant advantage of wiring your switches with our Infinitybox system is the fact that it takes very little current to turn on an input.  It takes less than 1 milliamp (1/1000 of an amp) to trigger an input.  That gives you the flexibility of using any switch to control the functions in your car.  With a lot of billet buttons, you have to use them to trigger a relay because they cannot handle the full load current of things like lights, starter solenoids and fans.  This is very easy with our Infinitybox system.

Since it takes so little current to turn on a MASTERCELL input, you can use very light-gauge wires between your switches and the MASTERCELL.  Our standard harnesses use 22-AWG wire.  This helps keep behind your dash clean and easy to service.

Lastly, we give you the power of advanced electrical control functions.  In the case of Jose’s car, he’s using our One-Button Start feature.  A single MASTERCELL input connected to a momentary button lets him start his car with ease.  Check out this blog post for more details on our One-Button-Start feature.

Jose just posted a great video to his YouTube channel, The Illegal Garage, showing off how he installed these billed buttons into his Cobra.  You can check it out below.

Supercar Blondie Test Drives Tachyon Speed

Eric Rice and his team at RASER have been getting some great press coverage for their Tachyon Speed.  This is a one-of-a-kind super car.  It’s all electric, it’s styled like a fighter jet and it can put out enough peak power to meet the needs of a small city.  Just like any other car, it needs an electrical wiring system to manage all of the functions in the car.  The RAESR team turned to Infinitybox to get the most advanced electrical system on the market to meet their customers’ needs.

The Tachyon Speed caught the eye of Alex Hirschi, aka Supercar Blondie.  Australian-born Alex is a world renown celebrity in the super car space.  She now calls Dubai her home and was recently listed as one of the top 30 most influential women in the Arab World.  Her blogs, videos and TV appearances have been viewed billions of times by aficionados of exotic and super cars.  She is an expert on all automotive thoroughbreds.  Alex made the trip out to LA to meet with the RASER team and test drive the Tachyon Speed.  She ran the car through its paces on the road.  She also had a chance to play with the touch screens and switch interfaces that are controlled by the Infinitybox system in the car.

The Supercar Blondie team posted a video showing Alex meeting with the RAESR team, touring the car and taking it on the road.  Check out the video below.

We congratulate Eric and his team for what they’ve accomplished with the Tachyon Speed.  We are proud to be a part of this car.

Our Infinitybox system was designed for any type of car, truck or race car.  You may not be building a super car but you can get the same functionality and features in your restoration, street-rod, kit car or Pro-Touring build.  Click this link to contact our team to learn more.
