You guys won’t believe this!
2 days ago, I went to my tuning specialist for advice on cooling the engine temperature on track days. As we were talking about different options to monitor the temperature (different gauges) I told him I searched the web for a pod gauge but unfortunately couldn’t find the Osir Pod Gaude I was looking for. “It’s been discontinued for quite some time” I told him “and I guess I’ll have to find another way of mounting my gauges in the dash”…
He then turned around and asked me to follow him. So I did. I followed him in his stock room and waited for him to find what he was looking for. He was going through dusty boxes, looking under blankets, things were falling from the shelves… Anyhow, after a five minute search he went “Ah-ah! Found it!” and handed me a small black Osir box… There it was: A complete Osir Design Carbon Fiber Mantis waiting to be installed!
I couldn’t believe it! I had just posted an article on this blog saying they can’t be found anymore and BAM, 2 days after I had one in my hands. I gave the garage owner the 250$ he wanted without hesitation and left him as a happy camper.
One thing, I may resell it. Not sure yet. I asked an aluminium designer from Germany to custom design a pod for my car. So I may sell the Osir kit. Let’s see.
