The DataMaster Sportsman
Computer represents the future in drag racing data recording. This all-digital
unit is the fastest in the industry, recording all pulse data as a frequency.
Since there are no outdated analog channels to slow processing down, a sampling
rate of over 3,300 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 other data recorder presently
available (at any price) can achieve this much accuracy! Want proof? Then, click
DataMaster is not a typical data recorder. it is a performance computer. It does
not have any analog channels so it does not do temperatures or pressures, which
in our application have no purpose or use. We are interested in finding thousandths
of a second of variance, where it happened, and why it occurred. It's all about
consistency and this is the only tool that can do it.
uses twelve(12) pickup points on the drive shaft. This is also the only data recorder
that reports vehicle reaction time and actual performance data in time slip form
that will actually match a Compulink timing system within .001 of a second. The
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 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 an IBM compatible 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."
