Crew Chief Pro Software customers here are some of the latest changes which will be available in tonight’s update:
First, in order to make entering ET information easier, I’ve added the ability to enter whole numbers and let Crew Chief Pro adjust your reaction time for you. For example: I enter ” 8 ” in the Reaction Time field and press enter, Crew Chief Pro will change the value to .008 instantly. If you enter ” 26 ” and press enter, Crew Chief Pro will change it to .026. This is to speed up data entry for those of you who are decimal challenged… Take a look at the screen shots.
Now if you are RED by .006, all you need to enter is ” -6 ” and we will change the value to -.006 when you press enter. NOTE: This also works on the OPPONENT INFORMATION TAB on the Opponent’s Reaction time.
Second, I changed the Text Messaging output to stay below the number of characters most providers require. What was happening was Crew Chief Pro customers would receive two text messages in a row. It took quite a bit of twisting of the output in order to prevent this from happening.These changes will be in both the big car version, as well as the Junior Dragster version.
Many of my customers are unaware of a very important feature in Crew Chief Pro. You don’t need Decimal places in any of the ETs or MPH fields. We will automatically put decimal points in the correct location after you press enter. For example, say your Eighth Mile ET time is 4.487, all you need to enter is 4487 and press enter and we will fix it for you. Same way on MPH.
