Racepak or RPM. RPM will be cheaper overall, but if you want the prestige of the name and maybe a few more bells and whistles such as starting a Go-Pro then Racepak.

Everyone will probably tell you to get whatever they use or will say Racepak because if you are at the track and need help others have Racepak. I do use and install RPM, but either will serve you just fine.

Depending on your version of “A slow door car” why not consider purchasing the MSD Grid system. You can kill two birds with one stone, a Data recorder and an improved ignition system that has multiple features and advantages, like adjustable timing map, shift timer, etc.

If you require fuel pressure information or select data that only conventional data recorder can provide the RacePak Sportsman unit should give you all you need, the VD300 is overkill, and twice the price.

I have the RPM and think it is the best value and easiest to operate. Mine monitors most everything and to do the same with any other would be WAY more expensive. One of the reasons I choose the RPM unit was with others when you start adding a bunch of functions the price got real expensive quickly. The sensors are much more reasonable and it is easy to add more later. If you want a basic system the price difference is not that much but when you start monitoring a lot of things is makes a huge difference in cost.

The service and support with the RPM unit has been really good. Also the installation is really clean with the RPM unit because you do not have a bunch of extra wiring.

I care about performance, durability, value and ease of use and I chose the RPM unit. I would recommend it to anyone.

Easiest to install and expand later
Easy to use
Great data viewing graphics
Many more use this than any other so getting help at the track is not a problem

Just remember a Racepak Sportsman will max out at some point and if you need more, you will have to sell what you have to move up to a V300. I have RPM and have had good luck with it. I have their DL28, and it started life as a DL10. The RPM unit "base" model can be upgraded all the way to the biggest unit they have.

No, you will never run out with this deal! They are upgradeable to 12 channels, if you need more than that u are not bracket racing! I run a TD dragster with the sportsman and its fine at 6 channels!

I vote grid also, for $400 it does a lot of neat things that can be handy for bracket racers. My grid is controlling an old school 6al just fine, nice cheap way to kill several birds with one stone.

No, I had a screen shot from a saved run on the unit.
