Monte, Mike,

If it is not too late and the HW allows you to implement it, think about providing the user the option of customizing the messages appearing on the display; for instance on another language, etc..

Juan,

I can't alter it to the extent that the user could create the own messages whenever they wanted. However, alternate language display is a good idea. If you are willing to help create/translate, I'll gladly put custom messages in any unit. I'll PM you and we can discuss it away from this thread. If we ended up with full message sets for multiple languages, I could add selection of such to the user interface.

Mike

DRS Start Light, ahora en español.

With assistance from JuanLUX , our Start Light is now bilingual. While adding the Spanish language option, I built a framework to easily support more. If you want to request a specific addition, I'll need your help to determine the suitable words and phrases in the desired language.

Thank you JuanLUX!

Default My wish

If I had my choice, the start light would also be wireless networked into my home network so I could control it from my tablet, smartphone or other wireless device.

Just a thought to improve a great system.

Looks like you thought of everything and turned out a product in record time.

Using SCXd, if I want to run a 100 lap race and not a timed race do I set your timer to something way too long like 60 minutes to allow SCXd end the race?
I ask because the SCXd chrono displays fast lap, avg, & gap after the race. If you cut the power the CU doesn't know the race is over.

Remember. Brake hard. So you can say you tried to stop.
