    apexi makes a digital speedo/tach, or get a vafc (if you have a vtec motor) and that has a digital tach on it.

    VAFC = VTEC Air Fuel Controler

    and digital anything is not very easy to read... with the needle you just make a quick glance and you know what your at by assosiation of the needle position... with digital you need to read and register the actual numbers... takes a little longer and will slow your reaction

    very true, with my monster tach (no stock tach, dx :p) i can see out of the corner of my eye where its at, you dont even really need to look at it, and you can tell your rpm by needle position. i used the vafc as a tach for a while, if you put it on 1 channel display, it prints it pretty big, but still like e_solsi said, you have to read the numbers and then register it.

    EDIT:
    p.s.
    VAFC = Vtec Air Flow Converter ;)
