Get a shift light and an oil pressure light. You would be one of the very few
that actually looked at the gauges once a run is underway. Water temp and oil
temp are nice to make sure that the engine is warmed up before you make a pass.
You can always rotate the gauges as well so that a normal reading has the
indicator pointing straight up as well then you won't be reading them anyway
just looking for the relative position of the indicator.
