Thanks Dave, I’ll give that a try.
I was wondering about the race display, could it be dynamic and change depending on how many sensors you want to run?

Yes, I thought they looked accurate but I haven’t double checked.
Check the race setup menu. If you run a race without checking the DYO (Dial your own) then there is no bracket window.

Hi Banana, I’ve been using the analog pins for the Christmas tree and their out is low for some leds and good for others. The clear 5mm I have work well so I painted them with clear yellow and green....

Yes, I was looking at other options because of the low output voltages. I noticed that white leds are much brighter(same spec). So I changed them to clear and painted them with clear yellow and...

Hi Banana, a couple of things to watch out for. You want a resistor on the positive lead to prevent you drawing to much current and blowing the led.

Hi, yup it works. If you don’t have any hardware setup I think you can run it in demo mode. The space bar will let you pre stage, stage the start the race. I think it will run with just 2 sensors as...

Yes, I guess the reed may trip with car in slightly different positions. Not sure if would matter though. The photo interrupters are cheap, but I would admit tedious to mount. The slit that the...

Hi Mike, good question. I’m not sure if DRC supports the extended protocols like RC for neopixels. That would make the wiring easier. I’ll see what I can find out.
As for sensors, most seem to be...

Thanks, Rich

I just noticed there are also some photos from Westwood in B.C.

The Klondike photos are cool with Stirling, Denny, Bruce, John and more attending.
