Race Capture Pro — As Seen on Adafruit Show & Tell!

Check out this great time-lapse of the process of this team building their OSHW Race Capture Pro units — as seen on Adafruit Show & Tell on Dec 1st! — from Brent Picasso of RaceCapture:

A small change in performance can be the difference between winning and not. This is true for driver or car. If you’re a good driver in a good car, it’s hard to know exactly what change is needed. Maybe it’s tire pressure, a suspension tweak, a different line through corner 5 and 6, who knows? Occasionally you stumble across the solution, but much of the time it goes unnoticed or unresolved. None of this is a mystery to a professional race team. They know exactly what’s going on. They’ve spent the money. They’ve got all the data.

If you had this kind of data, if you knew exactly what was going on, you could make the change, big or small, that makes the difference.

Lucky you! Collecting that data just got a lot more affordable….

Race Capture Pro collects data. Lots of it. It’s a powerful, multi-channel data acquisition and control system designed to be installed in your street or race car.

We’ve packed it with advanced features normally reserved for high end systems.
