Description:

DataMaster is our original Performance Analyzer. This unit has a Z180 CPU running at 9.216 MHz (9,216,000 cycles per second) and 1.5 MHz Direct Memory Access (DMA) channels. This unit has a real world sampling rate of 3000 times per second!

Quick functions, by button push, are available on the unit itself:

Engine RPM Playback
Drive line RPM Playback
Vehicle Reaction Time
Time to Distance for every foot of the race track
Accurate Time Slip Function - 60'et/mph, 330'et/mph, 660'et/mph, 1000et'/mph, 1320'et/mph

Complete Graphing and Overlay Functions on your PC!


Highly Accurate Time Slip
Time to Event Switches

Engine/Shaft RPM vs Time
Distance vs Time
Miles Per Hour vs Time
Drive Shaft Pulses vs Time
Efficiency% vs Time

Downloads to PC in under four (4) Seconds!
Visual Two-Step, Converter Flash, Throttle Stop, Shift Points, Traction, Converter Slippage, etc
So accurate you can see the effect of wind on Elapsed Time!
Accurately Test rev limit chips or Throttle Stop "cruise RPM' to within 3 RPM

6 Available Digital Input Channels to monitor switches, shifter, brake, throttle, etc.

Includes Performance Analyzer, rubber mounts, drive shaft high speed proximity sensor and cable, split ring, download cable, and DataMaster Analyzer Windows software.

1 USB to Serial Adapter is required, available here


The 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.

The DataMaster is not a simple data recorder. It is a Performance Analyzer. 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.

DataMaster 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.

DataMaster 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.

Bob, I really think your computer would (also) work on any Pro Car.

As far 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 unit.

You could have a whole new market in the making.

Bill Kuhlmann
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."
