    Having used a vast variety of in car video equipment in my cars over the last 6 years i sold my Vbox lite a few month ago and was attracted to the Race technology variations of datalogers and display equipment, one of the main reasons for me was simplicity as the company seemed to have sucjh a wide range of video tutorials at hand to guide you through whats whats (im lazy:mhihi:) but at the same time struggled with the other set up if im honest

    whats also very appealing is that they have managed to make these products work in harmony with the Go Pro cameras so all of you guys out there with go pro you may just have a nice upgrade possible for it.

    im just about to fit a full kit into my sprint car and have managed to get access to sell there products through our company. so when im set up and running i will add to this with my experience however given the size of the company and the amount of current users please see below whats on offer.

    DL1 Datalogger

    The DL1 data logger from Race Technology is a state of the art but compact data logging system suitable for all motorsports, to monitor and improve driver and vehicle performance.
    The DL1 can store data from a number of sources including its built in GPS and accelerometers. one key advantage of using a high accuracy 5Hz GPS system and a 3 axis accelerometer is that it greatly improves track mapping and gives far more accurate speed measurements and lap times. One other advantage of using GPS is that it negates the use for trackside beacons. The DL1 can also receive data from up to 13 external sensors. It features a true 100Hz update rate on all channels, making it capable of detecting minute changes. Lap and sector timing are both available with a satellite overlay option on track maps (live lap and sector timing are also possible when using a Race Technology dash display).
    All information stored on the DL1 is done so on a removable memory card for easy downloads, as well as being output in real time for display on a Race Technology dash. A 1 GB memory card can hold approximately 50 hours of data logging, and the easy to use, comprehensive download software makes studying the information easy.
    The DL1 Has 3 Models:
    • 5Hz: The 'all rounder' DL1 data logger incorporating all the above features and functions.
    • 20Hz: The 20Hz option of the DL1 is quite simply one of the most accurate data logging systems available. It has all the features of the 5Hz model, but offers greater positional accuracy.
    • Drift: The Drift model DL1 has a built in highly accurate gyro to measure the way the car is pointing, and by comparing this with the GPS data, it can measure the drift angle of the vehicle.
    Kit Contents:
    • DL1 unit
    • Magnetic mounting GPS antenna (3 metres of cable)
    • 1 pair of aluminium brackets
    • 4 Velcro strips
    • 2 Metre serial lead
    • 12 volt power lead
    • Comprehensive software CD
    • Carrying case (with cut foam interior)
    • DL1 Quick start guide

    The Software

    The software that comes with this seems simply amazing, very very user friendly and it appears like there are so many features available that their rivals don't offer, along with a you tube site and website that is packed with very easy to understand help and support files

    Software

    Without doubt the power of their analysis software is one of the key reasons why Race Technology products go from strength to strength. The Race Technolgy Data Analysis Software is the main application that is suupplied with nearly all of their products, and as the title suggests, it allows you to analyse the data you collect in various ways.

    A very simple way of what the software can do is to download the data after a race and calculate lap times and speeds around the circuit, or fopr example, plot the power output for the run. However this is just scratching the surface of the softwares capabilities, as it is such a hugely powerful and flexible piece of software. Some of its more cutting edge features include:

    Runs under windows
    Full video Support
    Accurate track maps
    User designed filtering
    Almost unlimited laps and sectors
    User defined variables

    Dash 2

    [​IMG]

    The Race Technology Dash 2 is a compact, robust, water resistant display unit for road, racing and vehicle testing applications, which can be used either as a standalone dash unit, or when linked to a Race Technology GPS data logger becomes a dash display with real time data display and functions, including speed, RPM, sensor readings and lap/sector times with predictive lap times. It is ideal for demanding applications from single seaters to a professional engineering environments.

    The Dash 2 either reads from sensors connected directly to the unit or via external sensors from a data logger. The data for each channel is then converted to the users preferred units and and displayed on the screen (for example you could display exhaust gas temperature and oil pressure, then set your own high/low warning levels for each of the channels). The Dash 2 also negated the need for a track side beacon as it displays highly accurate lap and sector times - all calculated from GPS data.

    When used in stand alone mode, the Dash 2 can monitor up to four analogue inputs. It has inputs for engine speed (RPM), vehicles speed, a non resettable odometer and warning lights for full road legal operation.

    When the Dash 2 is connected to a Race Technology data logger, it can then be further configured to display many more parameters including real time lap and sector times calculated from GPS data, any available analogue measurements (temperatures, pressures etc), RPM, wheel/shaft speeds etc. The actual data displayed can be set up for the users specific requirements, including independent alarms for all channels. Please note: It is necessary to connect four external buttons to the Dash 2 to operate the menu system and select different display screens (buttons are not supplied with the Dash 2, but any momentary dash mounted/steering wheel button will suffice).

    Kit Contents:

    Dash 2 Display Unit
    Wiring loom with connectors to attach dash to a data logger or PC
    2 metre serial lead extension
    Full Instruction manual
    Comprehensive instruction manual
    Mounting template
    Carrying case (with foam cut interior)

    DASH 3

    [​IMG]

    The DASH 3 from Race Technology is designed primarily for competitive automotive applications. Its compact size, low weight and flexible mounting options make it a versatile tool suitable for almost all applications, from karts and motorcycles to saloon cars and formula cars. The dash display extends the functionality of the Race Technology data loggers by allowing the driver to see the data in real time as it is happening in the vehicle.

    At only 119mm x 53mm it is one of the most compact displays around, yet it has a fully configurable graphics LCD back lit display and is packed with features. It is available in 2 versions - full and lite. Both units take their feed from Race Technology data loggers (or ECU interface) and feature comprehensive lap and sector timing features, including:

    Lap timer
    Lap time memory and recall
    Lap and sector time display
    Predictive lap timing
    Best lap/sector notification
    Session summary review
    The Dash 3 lite also displays the vehicle speed and has programmable shift lights, whilst the Dash 3 full can display comprehensive data from GPS, accelerometers, sensors and ECU interfaces in numerical, bar graph and XY graph formats. The display is easy to mount, lightweight, and in a nutshell - is the perfect solution for real time feedback!
    Kit Contents:
    Dash 3 or Dash 3 Lite unit - complete with power cable
    Instruction manual
    Comprehensive software CD

    GoPro integration

    [​IMG]

    Use GoPro HD videos in the Analysis software, and create stunning HD output videos
    Using synchronised data and video in the Analysis software adds an essential level of information to competitive motorsport. Our VIDEO4 systems offer fast loading from a single card, multiple camera views, and fast video processing in the software. Another option is to use a separate video system and to synchronise the video with the DL1 data logger data. This synchronising is done in the software, either manually or using some of the automatic synchronisation options.

    Race Technology GoPro HD Video Support - YouTube!

    [​IMG]

    We've spent lots of time making the link between the software and the GoPro as seamless and simple as possible, all GoPro resolutions and frames rates are supported, the video is loaded instantly without any conversion. We've also spent a great deal of time making the video handling as efficient as possible so it works well on a modern laptop, for an i3 CPU handles the HD video very well. We recommend recording at standard HD size and frame rates (720p and 1080p at 25 or 30 frames per second), larger formats and increased frame rates are not required and may be too demanding for playback on many PCs.

    [​IMG]

    You can have the GoPro video along side the data for analysis of things like racing lines and traffic conditions:

    [​IMG]

    You can export the video with graphic overlays in full HD, the overlays can be selected from a list of predefined layouts or can be designed using the overlay design tool:
    One of the most important aspects of the system is now the GoPro video can be aligned or synchronised with the data from the data logger. For the maximum flexibly and convenience there are 3 options:
    •If you are using a DL1 CLUB / SPORT / PRO / WP data logger or a DASH2 PRO with data logging, the GoPro can be controlled using the control cable*
    •The video and data can be aligned based on the file time stamps
    •The video can be manually aligned, possibly using the video sync flasher to aid the process

    *Cable compatible with GoPro HD Hero, Hero 2 and Hero 3 White edition. GoPro camera must be set in "1 button mode" to start recording when turned on. For Hero 3 Silver and black edition we recommend using the wifi remote to start recording at a similar time to logging, making for easy synchronisation.


    The price includes the software licence (for full HD export and video by data analysis) and the control cable. The GoPro interface cable is not compatible with older DL1 units (MK1, MK2). Please note: the GoPro camera is not included
