Pit Pro

Sorry If this has been asked before, have searched but couldn't find It. I am thinking of separating pit pro from the track piece, which should be straight forward because in a way It already is and has been done before, I have seen some marvellous examples of pit pro combined with the lap display. My main goal is to make a housing for pit pro with the red/green light, probably combined with the lap display, but I want to run the leds in parallel to the driver stations.

Has this been done before ? Can I expect current-problems when running leds in parallel ?

And another suggestion, I think It would be nice to use the led's of Pit Pro for other purposes too, like stop&go indicator for example, track call , tyre wear indicator etc. If running parallel, one could change the color of the leds. Thing is, software should be compatible too.

Thanks for your input !

2 interesting concepts here....

1) replacing the LEDs in PitPro with different colours (after all, SSDC has fuel and the light colours will show the degree of fuel usage), and

2) parallel LEDs for separate stations (now, how often does one look down instead of at the track?)... parallel may change the resistance used so may have to modify the PitPro display when adding LEDs in parallel to adapt for the voltage and current loads.

I am sure someone more technical will be able to fill the blanks or correct me.... but I wonder what happens if you are looking at the driver station while pressing the controller... might want to have the lights on the track instead!

This will be interesting to see developed.
I am still pondering start lights and track call lights.
But first I have to get my layout finalized!
