Timing For Vista

Recommended Posts

Hi Slotters

I have an unused laptop running Vista does anyone know of a timing setup for a 3 lane routed track that i can run on this as it does not have a printer port but has a few USB ports?

cheers

As far as I know, the best solution would be something like the trackmate interface. Other than that, you can use a webcam and zone trigger to send the laps to you favourite timing app. Alternatively, You could try a usb parallel port adaptor...

Do you only want timing or do you want timing and race control with power switching?

If you only want timing then the web cam will work with out any interface.

But if you want full control then the Trakmate interface is the easiest way to go with a good USB serial adapter. The best adapters I have found are marketed by Iogear or one that look the same ( brownish) colour.

These are available on EBay from several sources. The Trakmate interface and sensors can be brought from Trakmate in Canada.
