Re: Latch for track start gate

I know this is a old conversation but I have a question. I made this mode and it worked very well until the gate was closed and sat for 15 min or so for intermission. I came back to find the timer dead and no power. I panic and unplugged everything the power supply for the finish line was warm and s...

360 Photo of cars (idea)

greetings, as stated before I run a lot of races and have a great time doing it. I have dreamed for some time to create a rig in which I can pass all the cars that are going to race through. In which once they get to Spot X it fires off 4 camera's to take a 360 shot of the car. I can then add that t...

Re: GPRM 11 Aborts Race if Racer doesn't finish

We have the Microwizard K2 and the laser start. I do want to convert over to a microswitch but want it to be the loop catch type so I can reset the gate while a race is in progress. We run rather large races and want to make sure we can step up the tempo of the racing when needed. Would hitting the ...

Re: Microwizard Laser versus Microswitch setup.

Someplace I have scene someone with a diagram of how to make a loop catching micro switch gate for the micro wizard setup. This loop catch acts like the laser in that once the gate is release for racing the loop is broken and the gate can be reset with out aborting the running race like the laser. C...

Re: GPRM 11 Aborts Race if Racer doesn't finish

We are using a 6 lane fast track timer. I've been racing this track for 8 years at about 10+ races a year. This problem seems to only be with v11 though we went from v8 to 11. The Heat stays the same it just acts as though no race just ran. Kinda crazy. have been debating on going up to Version 12 b...

GPRM 11 Aborts Race if Racer doesn't finish

Unfortunately this is not consistent. So I Run Heat 1 and all the cars finish but 1. The person running the timer waits for a few seconds then press's the escape key to finish the heat. POOF all the results are gone and the screen is at Heat 1 waiting to race? DOH! We have run about 8 races so far t...
