What do I need to do to print timeslips?

RaceAmerica offers printer packages and printer cables to connect printers to the XL timing system for printing on the track, or connect to the PC for printing in the tower. Each timeslip contains a 4-line header entered into the XLscore PRO PC software. Everyone who races could walk away with your name and phone number on their timeslip!
How are the track cables routed down the track to the finish line, speed, and intermediate ET sensors?
Cables can be routed down the routed OUTSIDE the track from start to finish or routed down the CENTERLINE of the track. When routed outside each lane, a dual sided IR Beam Emitter is placed between the lanes encased in a Custom Protective Foam Stand. The Beam Emitters are operated from four C-style flashlight batteries hidden in the Foam Stand. This eliminates all cabling from the racing surface and eliminates the need to run power to all the track electronics.
What if my track length is not a standard length?
RaceAmerica sells a wide variety of cable lengths. Standard lengths include 500 foot and 660 foot cables for snowmobile applications, 1/8 mile and 1/4 mile for fullsize dragstrip applications, and 300 foot cables for ATV and Mud Bog racing applications. RaceAmerica can custom manufacture a cable to match your track length from as short as a few feet to as long as a 1/4 mile.
