The DriftBox is the first vehicle performance meter with the ability to measure drift angle.
A 10Hz GPS engine, coupled with sophisticated motion sensors allow you to record vehicle performance characteristics such as drift angle, g-force, speed, distance, lap & split times and acceleration.
The new Predictive Lap Timing function gives you instant driver feedback and helps you to find valuable improvements in your times.
All parameters are logged to an SD memory card ten times per second for later review and comparison.
|Acceleration: 0-60, 0-100 / displays: Time, g-force
Braking: 60-0, 100-0 / displays: Time, distance, g-force
Distance: 60’, ¼mi, ½mi, 1mi / displays: Time, trap speed
Live G-Meter: Accel, Decel, cornering g-forces, with max G
||Real-time view of drift parameters and calculation of key drift data.
Speed: Current, Peak & Average
Drift Angle: Current, Peak & Average
G-force: Peak & Average
Score: Current & Total
||Wheel HP Calculation: Enter your vehicle’s weight and run an acceleration to estimate wheel horsepower.
Flywheel HP Calculation: Perform a coast-down test to measure drag, and the PerformanceBox will calculate HP at the flywheel.
|Speed: PerformanceBox also works as a highly accurate digital speedometer with compass, a handy feature for street driving.
Accurate GPS speed can be used to calibrate a vehicle's speed readout.
|Lap Time: Displays current lap, last lap, best lap
Split Times: Dislays split time or speed at a split point
Virtual Start/Finish/Split Lines: Using GPS, there is no need for an external beacon or transmitter. Split lines can be easily saved and transferred.
|Predictive mode enables you to graphically view your predicted lap time.
Predictive lap timing works by saving your position around a circuit, every second. If the current lap is the fastest so far, then this positional data is saved as a reference.
|This screen provides the ability to configure the input channels of a connected Micro Input Module and view the data on each of the input module channels.
A Micro Input Module allows 4 analogue and 1 digital (RPM) inputs.
Predictive Lap Timing
To achieve our unrivalled accuracy, we compare two different laps using GPS position rather than distance, 10 times a second. This means our lap time stays accurate, even if yiou take a different line each lap.

Circuit Tools Analysis Software
The software is designed by racing drivers, for racing drivers, with none of the complexity normally associated with analysis software.
Easy to use
To analyse your track data, simply insert the SD card with your recorded data into your PC and select a file.
Huge track database
The software automatically detects the country, circuit and track configuration from a database of 400 circuits and uses the start/finish line information to separate the laps contained in your recorded file.
The fastest lap from your latest session is automatically chosen and displayed on the graph window. You can compare runs from this session, or from previous ones simply by clicking on the relevant lap time shown in the session window.
Lap time difference channel
Time difference or 'Delta-T' is a very useful channel that shows the lap time difference between two different laps.
More about Circuit Tools Driver Analysis Software.
This software allows you to analyse your vehicle's performance in a range of acceleration and braking tests.
To use the data logging, simply insert the 64MB SD card (which gives up to 53 hours of logging) and drive. Once you have finished the test, either plug the Performance Box into a PC via the USB cable provided, or remove the SD card and place it in a suitable reader.
The data is then read into the Performance Tools software, which is installed from the CD supplied.
This software allows graphical analysis of acceleration, braking, cornering and lap times. You can overlay up to four files, and you get an accurate track map to compare your driving line between different laps.
