Crew Chief’s Nitro Pro Exclusive Proprietary Formulas
Nitro Pro has been in development for 8 years. We test many different formulas. The calculation formulas that prove to be most accurate are then added to the software. Some of our unique formulas are Horse Power Correction, Late Night with Temperature, Late Night with Humidity, and Adjusted Altitude with Barometric Pressure. We create and customize our software so you can use your own calculation formulas and let “Nitro Pro” perform these calculations every 15 seconds!

Electronic Log Book
Nitro Pro Log book contains the run information, the weather during the run, and split time intervals for 60Ft-330Ft, 330Ft-1/8th Mile, 1/8th – 1000 foot, 1000 foot to Quarter Mile, 60Ft -1/4th, and 330 foot to ¼ mile. These give you an excellent tuning tool and comparison to other runs. This log book prints out and slips into a 3 ring binder perfectly. It is color coordinated so your eyes key in on certain areas quickly.
Nitro Pro can store virtually an unlimited number of databases. The benefit of different databases is to store runs together where the weather changed the ET and not some track anomaly.
Each Database has its own set of Calculation Factors, Blower Factors, Nitro Percentage Factors, ET formulas, and default information!
Separate Databases prevent runs in one database from contaminating runs from another database, especially important when the ET is different from track to track.
“Search Runs” and a “See Similar Runs”
Nitro Pro provides you an option to search runs that are similar to your current run. You can click one button to see for yourself what your vehicle has done under similar conditions in a few Milliseconds. Before Nitro Pro you might have spent 30 minutes looking through a logbook for similar runs. Nitro Pro then shows you a “Search Screen” which shows all the runs where the DA was within 400 feet of the current conditions. This data is listed in a Spread Sheet fashion and this allows you to spot TRENDS in performance. We know you need important, real world data for proper E.T. Predictions. What good is a prediction without some “muscle” to back it up? Now when they call you up YOUR READY! You have studied the information You know how your car will perform. This is the Nitro Pro Edge.
You can display or print information stored in the program in any order you wish. For example, you need to see all runs at HOUSTON where the corrected altitude is between 800-950 feet. No Problem. If you want to recall all runs with #008 Blower then a few quick keystrokes and the information appears on your screen or prints a report.
Prints NHRA, IHRA, and YOUR Track’s Tech Cards
Now you no longer have to fill out your tech card at every race. Nitro Pro will print and fill in all necessary information on your tech card for you. It will fill in all the serial numbers and certification numbers for you. You can store an unlimited number of vehicles along with their associated information. Just enter your NHRA or IHRA number and click print.
