Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the difference between ForceFlash Basic and ForceFlash Advanced?
    • ForceFlash Basic provides the same functionality as ForceFlash Advanced, but only the CHMSL flashes. For the ultimate wow factor, we recommend getting the ForceFlash Advanced! The ForceFlash Advanced flashes the two innter tail lamps along with the CHMSL on the Corvette C6.
  • Will the ForceFlash cause hyper-flash?
    • It will not. ForceFlash comes from the factory with the proper resistors that eliminate hyper-flash and the possibility of the computer errors.
  • Why does the ForceFlash Advanced change the functionality of the two inner lamps on C5 & C6 models?
    • Because the turn indicators and brake lamps share the same filament. From a design perspective, this made the most sense. After seeing how much better it looked, we were convinced most would agree. Click here for a full demonstration of ForceFlash Advanced.
    • During development, it was determined that cosmetically the rear lights look better when only the outer lamps are flashing when the turn signals are activated. Only the turn signal behavior is impacted and is fully legal!
  • Is ForceFlash street legal?
    • It enhances safety on the road under emergency braking conditions. Unlike other devices that only flash the center high mount stop lamp CHMSL (third brake lamp), the ForceFlash Advanced will tell the drivers behind you that your a coming to a high G stop with three flashing lamps!
  • Is there a ForceFlash model that only connects to the CHMSL (third brake lamp)?
    • Yes. ForceFlash Basic. It contains the same functionality but only flashes the CHMSL. We do recommend getting the ForceFlash Advanced to take full advantage of the functionality and cool factor.
  • Is the installation time really 10 minutes?
    • Yes; on the C6 system. Please see the step-by-step installation instructions¬†and video. The C6 version of the ForceFlash is designed¬†to interface with the factory harness without any splicing.
  • I have aftermarket tail lamps, will the ForceFlash still work?
    • If you retained the factory harnesses, the ForceFlash should integrate with your aftermarket tail lamps.
  • What is a CHMSL?
    • Centered High Mounted Stop Lamp (third brake light)
  • Will the tail lamps flash when the engine is used to decelerate?
    • No. The ForceFlash acts as a part of the normal brake lighting and only activates when the brakes are used.
  • Why do I purchase the ForceFlash through the ExhaustMeister website?
    • ExhaustMeister is a subsidiary of DFWCorvettes. We are the same company.
  • Is my purchase safe?
    • Yes! All purchases are via PayPal which provides consumers with full purchase protection.
