Speedster, I believe all the timers show elapsed time. You only need computer, cable, ... if you are wanting to run race management software.
A valid question. Some timers only show finish order with either a numeral display or different flashing rate of LEDs.

How to Still Run Your Race This Year

With the Corona Virus pandemic making meeting together for special events inadvisable, has anyone looked into live streaming their Pinewood Derby type race? We had one of our software customers asking us about that type of race. Basically, holding the race with the audience online only. Just a minim...

Re: District races CANCELLED

I was going to be running a couple of Awana races this month. For now, they are being postponed until April. I rather expect more races to be cancelled or postponed. Certainly won't help our business, as March is still part of our busy season. Lots of people are going to be financially hit by all of...

Re: The West Coast Grand Prix

Maybe Randy has some insight as to X number of cars = X number of minutes to conduct a race. Depends heavily on how well the race crew is organized, scheduling method used and the number of lanes on the track. Could be as fast as under 45 seconds per heat or more than 2 minutes per heat. Here's som...

Re: Inexpensive Weights

Cool idea Randy! Another alternative for some inexpensive weights.. May be to use 3/8" steel round rod that can be cut to size and found in most hard ware stores as well. https://www.homedepot.com/p/3-8-in-x-36-in-Plain-Steel-Round-Rod-802447/204273959 That's a possibility, but cutting it up could ...

Re: Microwizard Fasttrack Timer Case Build

Looks nice. I like how you are keeping everything together (scale, car inspection box, timer).

Though, I would ditch the laser start sensor system. Too problematic. See viewtopic.php?p=53672#p53672. Use the mechanical switch instead. Much more dependable.
