2. CONGRATULATIONS to Ken Wells, Jason Wood, and Chris Garretson
New! PC Tree Pro with Cross-Talk - Windows 32-bit Practice Tree Software --
for 2006 is our PC Tree Pro
practice tree software, a 32-bit Windows
program and the ultimate drag racing Practice Tree for your PC.
Designed to improve your driver reaction time (RT), PC
Tree Pro is the only
drag racing practice tree with Cross-Talk!
I developed the very first
commercial drag racing Practice Tree, PC TREE in 1985 for the Commodore
64 home computer and then in 1987 for the IBM PC and compatible computers. There
have been many imitations of PC TREE throughout the years in both
software and in hardware devices. Supposedly, the sincerest form of flattery!
However, rarely are imitations as good as the original and more often just a quick
way for an unscrupulous person to make a quick buck! In fact, most of the software
imitations are not technically or mechanically (timing) accurate at all. The timing
system I developed has always been accurate to .001 of a second on any platform.
Beware of any software that claims to "adjust" to the CPU speed of
your PC! That's a dead giveaway that the timing system in the program is bogus.
Our new PC Tree Pro has all the functions of an NHRA or IHRA National
Event Tree (Compulink Timing System) and is just as accurate.
Save Mode & Options - This function will save the current Practice
Tree Mode and all selected Options.
