system if so equipped.
is also an option to use an external paging transmitter from Family Software for
all Altalab and Altronics weather stations. So, adding a paging system or upgrading
your current paging system couldn't be easier or more economical. Our paging systems
and pager units are a much better value.
Weather: Added feature to export weather data to RacePak software.
We've added an "Export Database as CSV File" function
for those wishing to export their data into Excel or other database program.
(- Zoom +) Computer display screens keep getting bigger so
we've added the - Zoom + feature so that you can adjust the size of the program
windows to your screen resolution or taste. All windows are also movable and individually
SQL Query Database
Structured Query Language (SQL)
is a powerful database tool. We can use the "SELECT" statement and the "WHERE"
clause to find only the records in your database table that meet with specific
At times you'll want to view only certain fields in a recordset
for easy comparison, especially when using SQL Search. We've added an Interactive
Custom Report that is viewable and printable. You can design a report "on the
fly" by clicking on the field buttons.
We've added an Opponent Database for those "wheel racers" who
need to know the performance capability of their competition. After adding your
run to the database click on Opponent Database and "Add New" to enter your opponents
performance data using their car number and/or name.

Pro Plus is the ultimate Drag Racing Logbook, and ET Prediction system
for your personal computer. It supports an unlimited number of databases each
having an unlimited number of records. RaceLog Pro automatically tracks weather
conditions, run information, weather corrected run segments, vehicle settings,
component runs, track conditions, expenses, points, winnings, and more. Weather
correction calculations support gasoline, methanol, and E85 fuel. Any run
can be located immediately by Run #, Track, Event, or Date. A Form-view allows
the user to see and edit all the data on just one screen. An exclusive dual Table-view
allows comparison of multiple runs within a database, or between databases. Records
and reports can be printed instantly. RaceLog Pro Plus interfaces with
many trailer stations and weather stations to automatically input the air conditions
and do it’s computations without any help from the user. It will also interface
with Family Software’s Weather Paging system to send your predicted ET, throttle
stop prediction and all weather conditions directly to the racer in the staging
Pro Plus will install on all Windows platforms, including Windows 8.1,
with at least an 800x600 VGA or higher display. It comes completely set up to
page up to four (4) different cars and/or Right Lane/Left Lane ET Predictions
simultaneously. The installation program gives the user an option to place shortcuts
on the desktop during installation and this is recommended.
you are using a supported weather station with RaceLog Pro Plus, it isn't
necessary to enter the weather data to a new record manually. Racelog Pro Plus
maintains a separate Date/Time indexed weather database while it is running.
When adding, editing, or inserting a new run, if weather data is available, a
Data Control appears allowing you to select the weather according to the Date
and Time on your time slip and is entered automatically into the database record.
Pro Plus uses TrueWind
ET Prediction, another innovation from Family Software. TrueWind is the actual
amount of wind force that is capable of affecting your car's performance. TrueWind
values are used in accurately predicting variations in elapsed time due to changes
occurring in wind speed and wind direction. Regardless of the wind direction and
total wind speed, using TrueWind, a trailer-mounted weather station can also be
used to measure the actual head or tail wind occurring on the race track! The
built-in ET Predictor Pro uses the TrueWind values from your Base Run, the current
TrueWind values, and a Wind Factor specific to your car, to produce a TrueWind
adjusted ET, and sends it directly to your pager, cell phone, or other wireless
device in the staging lanes. If you are manually entering your weather data, you
can still use a hand held wind meter with TrueWind ET Prediction.
Pro Plus has a special ET Predictor screen for eighth mile racers. If you
enter a zero (0) in the fields for 1000 foot ET and 1320 foot ET of the logbook
run record, the ET Predictor knows this is an eighth mile run. When you open the
ET Predictor, it will automatically display the 1/8-Mile Mode.
messages received have a Pager Identity P1, P2, P3, P4, or P5. By adding the Pager
ID to each message, it is easy to match a paging message with the instance of
RaceLog Pro Plus that sent it. Therefore, if you only have one pager, you
can now send simultaneous messages for different cars, or right lane and left
lane ET predictions to the same pager. Here is an example Page:
ET:8.862 TS:1.379 B:30.03 T:67 RH:49 G:47 V.326 HC:1.0166 AD:97.96 DA:701 DP:47
pager units are the best in the industry, are brand new, (not refurbished like
our competitors), and use the latest technology. Our pager has the only LCD display
in the industry that will show up to 8 lines of text. This means that you can
see all your data on just one (1) screen and not have to scroll back and forth.
Our competitors use pagers that cannot compare in features, quality, or value,
yet they charge you $$$$ more for each pager!
Pro Plus uses Family Software's proprietary Horsepower Correction formulas
for ET Prediction, the only completely scientific formulas in the industry. Our
ET Prediction is based on the amount of horsepower being produced based on the
RELATIVE OXYGEN in the air and a COMPUTER MODEL of your
particular cars performance. We DO NOT average weather data, run data,
or use outdated (and inaccurate!) Density Altitude calculations for ET Prediction.
Our original formulas are perfectly accurate and have never needed changing.
Pro has always used Vapor Pressure and is the only ET Prediction software to handle
humidity calculations correctly. You won't find any "fudge factors" in our software.
Here are some of the calculations provided:
Air Density Index
Water Grains per
Dew Point Temperature
Horsepower Corrected Weight
Pressure ET Correction
Predicted 60' ET
Predicted 330' ET
Predicted 1000' ET
Predicted 1320' ET
Throttle Stop Prediction
Run Completion ET
TrueWind 660' Prediction
TrueWind 1000' Prediction
TrueWind 1320' Prediction
our exclusive Run Segment Analysis feature to compare and graph
runs to see as little as .001 of a second difference at different points on the
race track. Differences that are not due to weather change. This is a feature
that Bob Kodadek developed, copyrighted, and is a trademark of Family Software.
We are the original ET Prediction software developer and innovator in this industry!
often imitated, but never duplicated, we have been "The ET Prediction
Experts" since 1986.

Just to let you know that the program worked O.K. on the new PC. In fact we managed
to qualify #3 in Super Comp with a 8.901 and backed it up on the next session
with a 8.906. We then went on to Win the class in eliminations the next day. All
we have to do know is see if we can repeat that at the next race.

Pro Gas Championship
Hi Bob, I wanted to let you know that we won the
Southern California Pro Gas Association Championship. The software and the car
are finally in sync. We had a great season. Runner-up at the first race then winner
the next day. We held the lead 5 out of 7 races. Glen and I couldn't be happier.
The champion (and his lovely wife) gets a week in Maui in a 3 bedroom condo on
the beach including airfare and a rental car. (No you can't go, sorry.) Just thought
I'd pass along another success story for your great product.
again for all your support.

you for the unlock code the system is amazing we had a huge weather front come
through at the last race and it cooled off somewhere around 11 degrees and every
condition changed. The program said to drop it from a 5.21 to a 5.17 so i did
and it ran a 5.171 on the 5.17!

Subject = Runner Up!!!!
first of all I want to say thank you for all your help at the end of last week.
You really made me feel like I wasn't being hurried as far as helping me set up
the software, etc. on my computer.
We ran more 9.90's in one weekend
than we have in a whole season!
We had a blast and ended up runner up!
VERY HAPPY. THANK YOU.
