Do you want your timer to send the actual times to a computer?

- You must have the PS Package or PSC option for the K1 Model timer in order for it to send your race times to a computer. Without this option your K1 Timer WILL NOT send times to a computer or work with race management software!!
- The K2 and K3 models of our timer will send actual times to a computer and has the PS Package (computer serial) option included. Each comes with a remote start switch (RS), USB to serial converter (USB) and 50 foot computer serial cable (SC) (extra 50' long cables are available for $). They both also come with extra computer options. See the individual timer pages for more information.
- If you do not have Race Management Software, the PS Package or the PSC will send a basic string of data to your computer showing car times that you will be able to see in FUNterm. There is an example of this on our FAQ page.

Do you want to use race management software?

We are the authorized agent for GPRM-Grand Prix Race Management Software Pro ($).
Derby Day! software package is also compatible with our timers. It is free and available directly from their website.

How soon do you need your timer?

It Takes 2 weeks for us to custom-build our timers and kits to fit your individual track.
Add that to the shipping time, and it could be three weeks before you receive your timer.
If you need your timer sooner than that, call us to determine if we can make your deadline! A rush charge of 10% may be added to the price of the order, as well as any expedited shipping charges.

How to measure your track?

We don't need your measurements if you have a Derbywizard Freedom Track, Piantedosi, Best Track, or Aluminum Challenger Track. Just specify it on the order form.

Otherwise, you need to measure your track the same way you want your timer to face. The timer can face the start of the track or the end of the track, whichever you prefer. Stand as if you are looking at the timer display on the track and measure the finish line left to right.
Measure from the left edge of the track to the center of each lane. We need the track measurements, even if you have ordered a kit.
Please also include the total width of the track.
Sample 3-Lane Measurements:
Lane 1: 2.5"
Lane 2: 6"
Lane 3: 9.5"
Total: 12"

You might need a Quick Mount if your track has side rails, or does not sit flat on the floor.
For more information go to our Quick Mount page
.

Are you planning to expand your existing track or buy a new one in the future?

Plan ahead! Our Fast Track timers are custom-built to your original specifications. Unfortunately, we are unable to add lanes to your existing timer. However, we can retrofit your old timer to fit our Freedom aluminum track. Call us for a price quote.
We suggest buying a timer with the number of lanes you eventually want to have, and using spacers until you get the extra lanes. This will save you money in the long run.
If you are buying a whole new track, you could also sell your old timer with the old track, and start fresh.
