G-Force Safety Brake Flasher ECU System for all stop lights on Ferrari

Our bright new Safety Brake Flasher system with deceleration sensor is out and encounters already a great success !

G-Force Safety Brake Flasher ECU System for all stop lights on Ferrari



This complete stop light management system, will flash all your stop lights including the center stop light depending on the deceleration force! The centralized ECU system and the embedded deceleration sensor will detect the level of deceleration and flash the stop lights through a complete new Plug & Play high standard rear light wire harness on which the stop lights and center stop light will be connected.

Imagine the quite common situation when you brake normally but then you need suddenly to brake much harder. With the stock stop lights, nothing will tell the drivers behind that you decided to brake harder as the brake light will just remain steady on. With this new ECU flasher system, depending on the level of deceleration, the stop lights will start to flash even if you didn't remove you foot from the brake. This is a huge safety improvement for a car like a Ferrari that can brake really hard. Of course, when you press directly hard your brake pedal, this system will also flash your stop lights accordingly to the deceleration force. Your stop lights will flash faster, the harder you presses down on the pedal.

The system is entirely configurable among more than 3000 setting combinations!

Watch some short videos where you can see the G-Force system in action:

Thanks Stef for your encouragement on my pics. Unfortunately I'm only an iphone6 user, so it's very hit or miss. Your new flasher unit is fabulous. I have your previous set up and have all my taillights configured for maximum flash. I have found them fabulous. They are so noticeable even in the daylight. I am a member of a 80 or so strong supercar club and the other guys have commented on how effective my lights are. With your new model, following cars will get an impression on how hard you are stopping. Brilliant stuff. I will repost your Instagram videos on my @ferrari .videos page.

David.

Many thanks David I must say I'm pretty proud of this achievement. The embedded firmware works really fast and will detect any deceleration in milliseconds when the brake pedal is engaged. The ECU can be entirely configured at wish. For instance, if you don't want the stop lights to flash when you're braking normally, it can be deactivated. Stop lights then will flash only at medium and hard brake force, both with a different and configurable flash pattern.

Some update also on this new product which is also now available!

F1-STYLE SAFETY CENTER STOP LIGHT FLASHER ECU for Ferrari



As some people got confused between the G-Force Safety Brake Flasher and the F1-Style Safety Flasher, I wanted to take the chance to clarify. The F1-Style flasher, even if it will flash your 3rd brake light (or center stop light), is completely independent of the brake system. Like on F1 race cars, it will make the 3rd brake light flash continuously with a remote control unit, whether you're braking or not. Although, if the F1-Style flasher is on and you're braking, the 3rd brake light flashes will stop and go steady on (to show that you're braking). As soon as you stop braking, the flashes will resume.

Both systems can be installed together and are perfectly compatible.

Here are 2 short videos that demonstrate the F1-Style Safety Flasher:

NEW - F430 ULTIMATE DRL Lights

Since already several years, we've been working hard to improve the F430 headlights and provide them a better look with a DRL light solution. Our current DRL light version, launched since now more than one year, provides a high level of brightness which is good enough visible at day and very visible at night.

We've created an additional and complete new DRL light, the ULTIMATE version, which is extremely bright, in total 2400 Lumens !! and is now available too. The light is so bright that a new power supply unit will dim them by 50% when the low beam lights are turned on, otherwise, the low beam lights would be barely visible at night! Even with such high level of performance, this new DRL Light remains completely Plug & Play and compatible with the limited power available from the parking lights. At daylight, even under direct sun light, they remain very visible and bright. No doubt that they will provide a much better modern look and improve your safety! The ULTIMATE version is an additional and complete new product for those who desire to have an extremely bright DRL light on their F430/Scuderia/16M. We call it ULTIMATE because it is physically and electronically impossible to obtain even a brighter light taking in consideration the limitations of space & power & heat (and keeping it Plug & Play solution). Several well known car brands engineers got in contact with me to know more about our technology as it doesn't require any fans or large heat sinks despite the high level of brightness

Last but not least, they don't flicker as most stock DRL lights do!

Argh - you addressed my only criticism of the previous version: it wasn't bright enough in daylight. How much are these new versions, Stef?

Thanks @excursion , they are priced 435,- CHF (approx same amount in USD or approx 290). We had to create a complete new solution to obtain a much higher brightness fighting against the limited space, power and heat

Here's a close-up picture of our new heat sink that is sandwiched inside the ULTIMATE LED light. We developed a specific shape to allow the heat to be better absorbed, then evacuated. As a result, the ULTIMATE DRL light stays "cool" even after 48hours permanent lighting. The heat sink remains very thin though.

And our bright new Full Line LED 3rd brake light for the F355/F348 is now out too

As for the F430/F360/F550/Enzo/F599, we developed our own LED technology which will illuminate this 3rd brake light by 40% more light than stock with a full line of bright red light. LEDs are totally invisible in this complete light cluster when not illuminated. Powered with our power supply unit, this new 3rd brake light has a super fast response time compared to the stock light. Another way to improve your safety!

Awesome updates Stef! For some strange reasons my Tapatalk app does not want to work with FLife anymore...and my desktop ie browser too decided to call it quits. So its' getting quite impossible for me to browse the forum with ease. Now I'm on Chrome. It seems to work for now.

I'll add those two new updates to my shopping cart once my car is almost ready.

Slow motion video demonstration


This very slow motion demonstrates the response time difference between the Ferrari stock 3rd brake light and our LED 3rd brake light cluster.

A half second difference (and more with old filament bulbs) can avoid an accident!

Our Ferrari LED 3rd brake light cluster is a Plug&Play complete unit
replacing entirely the stock Ferrari 3rd brake light which has very
slow filament bulbs, a yellowish illumination and doesn't illuminate the entire lens.

Some key advantages of our LED 3rd brake light:
- Total reaction time of <5 milliseconds, more than 50 times faster than the stock light
- Complete heat proof protection
- Optimized red lens
- LED's are invisible when not illuminated
- High quality Super Fast LED's (no cheap SMD LEDs !)
- Lens is 100% illuminated (40% more than stock)
- Powered with our Super Fast power supply module
- Very low power consumption
- 100% identical red colour as our ILUAL LED Tail Light Kits
- Our specific red LED colour is visible at very long distance but is not blinding


Our LED 3rd brake light cluster is available for the following Ferrari models:
- Ferrari F430
- Ferrari F360
- Ferrari Enzo
- Ferrari F599
- Maserati 4200 Spyder 2002+

And now also for:
- Ferrari F355
- Ferrari F348
- Lamborghini Murcielago

G-Force Safety Stop Light Flasher Option

Our successful G-Force Safety Stop Light Flasher now comes with an optional Wireless Remote Control ECU. This option allows to switch between the stock stop lights (steady on-Flasher deactivated) and G-Force Flasher activated. We developed this specific option so that you can deactivate the stop light flashes just with a click on the Remote Control Unit. The ECU module will always keep in memory your last setting even when the engine is stopped.

Press the A button of the remote control unit to deactivate the G-Force Flasher and your stop lights will work as stock (steady on). Press the B button to activate again the G-Force Flasher module.

The wireless controllable ECU Module can be directly plugged into the G-Force Flasher module.

A must have solution for your Ferrari that will considerably improve your safety as your stop/brake lights will flash depending on the deceleration force! The stop/brake light Flashes will even happen when you're already braking and suddenly you need to brake harder.
