We are proud to introduce the next generation of our racing weather stations, the RaceAir Cloud. This weather station has been engineered from the ground up to give every racer the most accurate weather information exactly when and where they need it.
The RaceAir Cloud incorporates the ability to add Wind Speed & Wind Direction. Knowing the wind speed and direction can go a long way to getting your car dialed down, especially true for Jr. Dragster and slower ET cars that are more likely to be effected by tail and head winds.
If purchased with the optional paging feature, you will receive your own closed circuit paging network that does NOT require any internet or cell phone service. This is the most reliable way to ensure you can get your up to date weather to the staging lanes regardless of cell service. When used in our RaceBase Logbook program or the Crew Chief Pager enabled software you can also get up to date ET Predictions.
You can now get updated ET and Throttle Stop predictions as well as all of your weather variables direct to your phone. With our easy START/STOP feature you can text START to the RaceBase number when you get to the staging lanes and get your updated predictions. Then just send STOP when you’re ready to race.
The text message feature will require an internet connection at the trailer. However, by using phone and tablet hot spots this has become easier than ever. Many cell phone providers also allow you to add a tablet to your plan at an affordable rate allowing you to turn the tablet into a hotspot instead of a phone.
The new sunlight intensity meter will give you a definitive value for how intense the sunlight was during the pass. With drag racing, your traction and how your car reacts is different when the sun has been pounding down on the track versus when the clouds are rolling in. With the new Sunlight value you can now measure the suns intensity in terms of Lux x 1,000. This allows you to see exactly when clouds came in and what effect they had on other weather variables and your performance.
We have not cut any corners when it comes to making the installation as clean and seamless as possible and we provide you with absolutely everything you need. We supply you with outdoor pole mounting brackets that are designed to fit in existing trailer flashing screw holes, and an indoor trailer storage bracket to keep your Cloud safe during transport. You will also have the option for either a 4-8′ or 6-12′ expandable cam lock pole as well as trailer storage brackets for the pole to ensure they are secured during transport.
The RaceAir Cloud racing weather station has been designed to make the race day setup process as easy and quick as possible. We supply you with the brackets to mount on the outside of the trailer, a cam lock expandable pole and even storage mounts for the Cloud and pole at the end of the day. Setting up and flying your RaceAir Cloud is as simple as plugging the Cloud in, placing it on the pole, placing the pole in the supplied brackets and firing up the software.
We have also completely re-designed our RaceBase Weather software making it extremely easy to use. Instead of having to know which communication port you are on, the RaceBase software will automatically search for you and connect without you having to do anything. Simply open the software, plug in the weather station and turn it on. You can now easily log your weather, utilize the table for reference, analyze the graphs to correlate to performance easier than ever.
When used hand in hand with a logbook program your RaceAir Cloud gains the ability to text or page you up to date weather and ET or Throttle Stop predictions. With the included RaceBase Logbook program you can connect to the RaceBase Weather software and can keep track of multiple cars and input all the important run and setup information for each pass. Includes a single run prediction, database prediction, throttle stop prediction, holley and fuel injection tuning, run completer, drag racing specific formulas and much more.
With our optional Trailer Install Kit you can create a clean and professional installation. It includes 3 separate cables. A short 2′ Interface Box cable, a 30′ or 40′ Trailer Wall cable, and a 8′ or 12′ Cloud cable. The trailer wall cable will come with 1 flange mount Deutsch pre-installed and the other end bare so you can run it through any trailer wall or flashing. We then supply you with open barrel terminals, shrink tube and the final flange mount to finish the installation. This results in a much cleaner installation.
