Company Profile

All Products Made in the U.S.A.

Performance Trends is one of the largest producers of high quality, high tech computer tools for today's racer, engine builder or performance enthusiast. Performance Trends started in 1986 with the release of our popular Drag Racing Analyzer computer program, quickly followed by the Engine Analyzer. Since then, we have expanded the product line to 20 engine building and racing computer programs.

Our most popular software would be the Engine Analyzer which is our Engine Simulation Software. We have three versions of Engine Analyzer, the Standard (basic), Plus, and Pro versions. Each one goes into more detail inputs for simulating more advanced engine modifications, offers improved accuracy, but do require you to know more about your engine.

Performance Trends has wide variety of Drag Racing Software. From Drag Racing Analyzer which can help you check for vehicle modifications to improve ET and MPH (or make dial in or throttle stop changes) to the Practice Tree which allows you to work on your reaction time. And don't forget about our popular 4 Link Calculator (std and Plus versions) for making 4 link adjustments.

Many of our program are designed for Circle Track and Road Racing. Whether you race at the local track, NASCAR, or even Formula One, Performance Trends has Racing Software that can help improve your results.

If you build your own engines or run a machine shop, you will want to take a look at our programs for Engine Building / Tuning Software and Tools. If you need software or Specialty Tools for Engine Building, Performance Trends has a program to help you out.

Performance Trends has been producing data loggers since 1995, both hardware (USB Data Acquisition) and software (Data Acquisition Software). Our 2 latest models take advantage of the latest technology, the DataMite III USB and DataMite Mini USB. Both of the new data loggers are USB for better compatibility with new computers, faster communication, and easier installation. They have surface mount boards for improved quality and reliability, small size, and reduced cost. The III is even GPS capable. Our new data loggers have a wide range of uses, from Dyno testing to in-vehicle data recorders specifically designed for Drag Racing, Road Racing or Circle Track. Our DataMites and Dyno DataMite software have instrumented over 600 dynos, including custom, inertia, chassis, water brake dynos or Stuska (tm), Go-Power (tm), Davenport (tm), Prototype (tm), Clayton (tm), and other brands of dynos.
