How do they work? Turn on when door is open or a switch turns them on?

This is triggered by the door switch. Whenever you open the door or unlock a locked car this goes on.

The best part is no wire cutting, still works with the door sensors. Thanks to Satya from Evo.

Really nice merchandise to purchase, Krishna . The 500 wireless mouse is a really nice touch, honestly this is the first time I've seen a car model being used as a mouse. Really tempted to get hold of one of these purely from a collector's perspective.

I had some questions for you:

- Do the headlights and taillights come on when the mouse is connected to the computer or is there some kind of switch for this??

- How usable is the car model as a mouse?? From pictures it looks quite bulky to hold in the hand. Is it a 1:24 scale model size or something else??

- Could you post some pictures of the bottom of the car model?? Is the base flat for movement along the desk?? Just curious because if it moves on the wheels, sideways dragging of the mouse would be somewhat difficult.

Super! I initially thought it was scale model. Good that you don't have it, but your better half does.

Else you would be thinking cars while you click your way at work.

PS : As if you wont think cars. without the 500

Super buy Krishna. You have managed to have your wife also work with cars on a regular basis just like you do. Any plans to take it to 3M for some PPF work?

That puncture looks just on the boundary of the sidewall. Have that tire at the back always.

And why is the road force report still showing pull towards left?

The before and after readings are self explanatory. However, I had to swap the tyres from left to right to make it less than 10 NM pull. Did not have time to remove the tyre from the rim and reverse it. Have left it for one of the weekdays to have this done.
