Pinewood Derby Timers

Race Timing Solutions to Turbo Charge Your Pinewood Derby!  Since 1996


We build, sell, and support Three Unique Pinewood Derby Timers 

 

The TURBO is built for 1 to 8 lanes and is modular, so you can expand in the future without buying a whole new setup.  The TURBO Pinewood derby timer is really different than what our competition offers:  

  • Huge 3 inch numeric displays over each lane, and user upgradable to double-sided viewing.  We are the only company with 3 inch displays.
  • Optional built-in USB interface.  The only timer on the market with built-in USB.
  • Easily upgradable by the customer up to 8 lanes
  • Converts from wood to Aluminum track without buying a new system
  • 6 year parts & labor warranty - the longest anyone offers! 
  •  Here's a link to see the TURBO timer in action on youtube.

DerbyStick is our newest and most-affordable product.  We incorporated the latest components and manufacturing techniques to reduce the size and lower the cost for tracks up to 4 Lanes.  By far the smallest and most capable on the market

  • Plugs into the USB port on your PC or laptop
  • Has the same timing capabilities as the TURBO timer
  • Finish order and all elapsed times are provide through the PC
  • Perfect for groups that will use a computer and projector
  • Uses our standard start switch and 1/4" stop sensors 
  • 1 year parts and labor warranty

At most of the races we have attended, if the race results are projected to a screen - that is what the audience watches.  Money spent on a track mounted display is largely wasted for groups using a projector.

Requires a light source at the finish line to illuminate the stop sensors. Our LightBridge product is perfect for this.  You can also use a regular incandescent bulb (Soft White, 60W) with one bulb for every 3-4 lanes.

The Turbo Lite  is a lower priced alternative to the full TURBO timing system that has the same timing capabilities without the over-track display.  

  • Finish order and all times are available from the Timer Module itself or through the PC interface  
  • Use your PC with an LCD projector to really wow the audience. 
  • Comes standard with a 9-pin serial port interface
  • Optional built-in USB interface.
  • You do not have to provide the measurements of your track for this timer.  
  • Turbo Lite is user-upgradeable into the full Turbo product

Requires a light source at the finish line to illuminate the stop sensors.  Our LightBridge product is perfect for this.  You can also use a regular incandescent bulb (Soft White, 60W) with one bulb for every 3-4 lanes.

How do I know which timer to buy or upgrade to? You should look at three key points:  number of lanes you need now, number of lanes you may need in the future, the cost of the timer/finish line you are considering, and the type of display you want to have.
