Re: Need a connector for the Racemaster to PC

All,

Thanks for the help, got a adapter at WM. A little expensive but we'll see, I'm going to test it tonight. Not sure if there is a CD in there or not. I'll probably have to go online to get drivers if the CD is missing.

Need a connector for the Racemaster to PC

I have a laptop with a parallel port and I noticed that the racemaster finish line sensor board has a 9 pin female connector on it. Where can I get a 9 pin male with a parallel connector to connect to the laptop at? Our GranPrix is tomorrow night.

Any and all help is appreciated!
