DataMaster represents the future in drag racing data recording.
This all-digital unit records all pulse data as a frequency. Since there are no
cumbersome analog channels to slow processing down, a sampling rate of 3000 times
per second is achieved. In time to distance calculations, DataMaster can see the
actual track distance traveled within one (1) inch and engine RPM variation within
just three (3) RPM. No data recorder can achieve this much accuracy! Want proof
and some screen shots? Then, click here.
DataMaster is not a simple data recorder. It is a Performance Analyzer Computerr.
It does not have any analog channels so it does not do temperatures or pressures,
which in this application have no purpose. We are interested in finding thousandths
of a second of variance, where it happened, and why. It's all about consistency
and this is the only available tool that can do it.
uses twelve (12) pickup points on the drive shaft that allow vehicle reaction
times and actual performance data in time slip form that will actually match a
Compulink timing system within .001 of a second. DataMaster weighs just 14 ounces.
will accept any DC power source from 9 to 36 volts. It can store up to four runs
in memory without having to download. There are a total of 16 digital input channels
that can detect contact closures (switches), count pulses, or respond to logic
levels (high/low). Nine digital inputs are currently accessed by the units firmware
with the remaining 7 inputs being reserved for future expansion. Two high speed
DMA digital inputs are used to record crankshaft and drive shaft pulses, a third
by the system, and 6 more are available to monitor switches of your choosing,
shifter, brake pedal, full throttle, etc.
A forty (40) character, two
line, LCD screen and 12 button keypad are used to display data after each run
and to perform other functions. DataMaster supports RS232 communication for downloading
data directly to a PC for graphing and analysis. DataMaster Analyzer software
allows the user to put the cursor anywhere on the graph and see the actual data
instantly. Overlay one run on top of another for easy comparison of runs.

I really think your computer would (also) work on any Pro Car.
as it working with (MSD) 44 mags, It seems to be as good as a Racepak. With some
time to get use to it, I think it will be a great alternative to the high priced
You could have a whole new market in the making.
Pro Mod - Nitro Coupe
Missouri’s Bill Kuhlmann
became the first doorslammer racer to crack the 200-mph barrier. He also nearly
became the first in the “fives” when he ran 6.001, 234.41 in a Nitro Coupe.
"I have seen everything else that is out there. Nothing else can
compare! The DataMaster can find mere thousandths of a second in performance
variance between runs. The other brands are just old-fashioned data loggers, they
can't provide a Sportsman racer any valuable information."
