Anyone ever use the Kahtec third brake light kit before? I was curious about their quality/longevity and the size (1"x2"x.5") of the module fitting inside the housing someplace.

Maybe watching too much F1 but I like the aesthetics of it. I've followed some vehicles that do this (possibly OEM??) that work really well for getting your attention. Especially for the 70 to 0 moments on the highway or such.

Doesn't our cars already have this in emergency braking situations?

No idea. I've never been behind one, let alone ever seen one in my area. Suppose I can flip through the manual to see. Though I would prefer to have it each time and not just oh **** moments.

This unit changes the fog light into a fog light and a two speed high intensity F1 stile brake light

Suppose you could always get the Euro Diffuser, Light and the flasher unit makes for an expensive flasher thou

3rd Brake Flasher Web Site is the one I used, but he doesn't have stock or discontinued the version I used with the gyro. I had it on for 2+ years and the way I have it setup I've had excellent results keeping tailgating ****ers off my ass.
Normal Brake = no flash just normal operation.
Medium brake = 2x double seizure warning flash then On. (if brake is still applied)
Hard Brake = Flashing F1 style for 3 pulses then On. (if brake is still applied)

Many choices!
Im going to act on one (?) as I run smoked tail lights.
I just hope the mutt behind me isn’t staring into there phone.
Cali guys beware, yours can’t flash more than 4 times in 4 seconds.

@jefferysanders good find. I like that option better and it's customization along with price.

Why am I not surprised the nanny state of CA has a law about the number of times a 3rd brake light flashes
