Test Less. Guess Less. Spend Less. Win More...With New Ultimate Playback Tachometers!

08/29/2014

In 1995, Auto Meter revolutionized drag racing with the introduction of the Ultimate Playback tachometer, which featured patented technology allowing the user to record and compare up to 4 passes of engine RPM data at 100 samples per second, providing essential and accessible performance information in the hands of sportsman racers in a familiar and easy to use package.

In 2001, Auto Meter introduced Generation 3 Ultimate II tachometers, adding innovative Tach Facts Software and the ability to record and compare both engine and driveshaft RPM on either the tach itself or a PC.

These critical instruments have helped racers fine tune and diagnose clutch and converter strategies, nail their shift points, and improve their launch consistency for nearly 20 years.

Today, Auto Meter is prepared to shock and awe the drag racing world again with the launch of the next generation of the legendary Ultimate tachometer line.

Meet the Ultimate III and the Ultimate DL, which place the power of more advanced Data Acquistion systems in an affordable, convenient, and compact package.

Ultimate III feature highlights include: -30% weight reduction over Ultimate II tachometers -High Accuracy, competition grade air core meter movement capable of matching the most powerful engines. Achieving 0 to 10,000 RPM in a mere 333 milliseconds! -4 stage shift light control -Availability in Black or Silver Dial faces of 9k and 11k RPM -Advanced LED backlighting for improved visibility, reduced electrical system draw, and resistance to vibration and tire shake. -New and improved ARMS (automatic recording memory start) system for worry free driver operation -Engine and driveshaft RPM recording at 100 samples per second with up to 60 seconds of available memory -Playback data right on the tach itself, or easily download it to award winning DataPro analysis software. Yes, the same DataPro software found on professional STACK Motorsports data acquisition systems! -Onboard tri-axis accelerometer to provide advanced data about vehicle acceleration and launch, working intelligently with DataPro software to pin point not only when, but where particular events occurred on the track!. -Backed by contingency in NHRA, IHRA, NMCA, and NMRA, a 1 year competition warranty, and Auto Meter's legendary customer service and race support team

More advanced users should consider the Ultimate DL (DataLogger) which adds to your information arsenal by providing connections for, and ability to record Wideband Air/Fuel Ratio and Pressure channel data to the Ultimate III features above, which can help you diagnose fuel delivery issues, improve power tuning, and raise MPH in the traps.

Put simply, Ultimate III and Ultimate DL tachometers from Auto Meter provide all the essential tools needed to dial in your setup minus the complication or expense.

Perhaps the best news of all? Even with all the improvements and new functions, they will actually cost you less than the previous Ultimate models, with a starting price of just $599 for the Ultimate III!
