1)  New Tractor Pull DataMite Logger Features  We've got several Tractor Pullers using the USB DataMites for recording their runs.  We've added a new "run type" to the Road Race/Circle Track DataMite software to use GPS for doing straight line runs.  (We can not offer this in our Drag Racing DataMite logger because NHRA does not allow GPS sensors.)

With the ability to precisely measure distance and vehicle speed with GPS, we can calculate tire spin and distance traveled, greatly improving data analysis for tractor pulling.  The graph below shows all 3 of these features: vehicle MPH, tire slip, and the data is graphed vs distance traveled in feet.

2) New Dyno Controller Features and Movies   

We're doing more development on our dyno controllers and have added some new features:
