Menu Bar

Below is an overview of the menus and their sub-functions. By clicking on the menu function, you will be taken to the relevant information on that option.


 Load data from file

Allows you to open up to 20 .RUN files simultaneously.

 Advanced load/saves
Save session to fileAllows saving the session to a permanent storage
Load session from fileAllow to load a previous session from your hard disk
Save logged dataSaves the processed data to a new .RUN file
Load default vehicle optionsLoads the preset vehicle options if you haven't overwritten them.
Save default vehicle optionsAllows you to overwrite the default vehicle settings. Useful if you're going to be using the logger for the same car repeatedly.
Load default simulation optionsLoad default simulation options from .SIM file in your PC
Save default simulation optionsSave default simulation options to a .SIM file in your PC
Load general optionsLoad general options from .CFG file in your PC
Save general optionsStore general options as a .CFG file in the PC
Load markers/sectorsLoads saved track markers and sectors, useful if you have several different .RUN files for the same course.
Save markers/sectorsSaves your track markers and sectors for a course, so that you can use the same ones if you have a different run, for more accurate comparison and analysis.
Load screen layoutLoads a saved layout for how you have the windows arranged, including layers and settings.
Save screen layoutSaves your current screen layout, including layers and settings, for later use.
Save current layout as defaultUse this option if you want to open the current layout every time you run Analysis software

Export as data…

Allows you to export the data into a .CSV file to use with excel, or a choice of .M or .MAT files for use with Matlab, or a plain text file.

Export as video…

Opens the Video Export Wizard that allows use to export the videos generated using the VIDEO4 system or 3rd party system to several popular export formats. You can export a whole run, and arbitrary section of a run, or a particular lap or sector and then export to the target format with or without an additional overlay.

 DBC file management

Launches Variable and DBC Manager

Print Setup

Set up your printer settings, Printer, Quality, Number of Copies, Paper and Page Orientation.

Print All…

Prints all windows open within the analysis program.

Print Window…

Prints a single window selected by the user.

 Format flash card

Formats the flash card

 Change swap file

If you wish to increase or decrease the size of the swap file which you selected the size when installing Race Technology software, you can do that using this option.


Exits the Analysis program.


 Run manager

Allows you to manipulate the .RUN files loaded, change the ambience settings, load a previously saved car file and setup the video inputs. In the video setup you can load the reference video files.

 Variable manager

The Variable Manager allows you to edit the variables used by the software. You can also create custom User Defined Variables based on current variables and constants.

 Analysis options

Allows you to set up options regarding the analysis program.

 Lap and sector options

Change the settings for and add the lap and sector markers. Allows you to edit how many sectors and how they they created.

 Edit default vehicle options

Allows you to change the settings related to the car that was used to create the .RUN file. You can edit settings on the gears, the wheels, the engine, the accelerometers and vehicle constants.

 Edit default simulation Options

Change the default options for Lap Simulation

 Clear everything

Clears all loaded .RUN file data.

 Clear all track markers

Removes all track markers from the Track map.

 Clear selected data

Equivalent to pressing "Esc" button on keybord which de-selects the currently selected data point or data range within analysis software (using Track map or Xy graph etc.)

 Re-process all data

Reloads all .RUN files.


 Duplicate current window

Opens a copy of the currently selected window.

 Set custom and defaults
Store window as customSaves the way the currently selected window is set out for later use. Selectable from the bottom of this window.
Set current as defaultSaves the way the current window is set out as the default, so when you load the window off the menus or the toolbar, it opens how you've got it currently set.
Delete customDeletes a custom window you have previously saved.
G circleThis is an example for a custom control
 Track map

This opens up the track map overview window, allowing you to visually view where the vehicle is on the track at any given time, and allows you to select points or ranges of data to analyse.

 Lap/sector times

Opens the Lap and Sector Times table, displaying information on the times taken for the vehicle to pass through the sectors and the laps defined by the markers.

 Selection scratchpad

This allows you to store any areas of data that you have selected. You will then be able to return to the selected data as and when it is needed.

 Summary statistics

Displays some user definable statistics for areas of the highlighted areas of the track. You can also see the statistics for defined laps and sectors.

 Xy graph

Draws a wide variety of graphs representing the data in different ways.

 Bar chart

Draws frequency bar charts.

 Marker based measurements

This allows you to carry out calculations based on the lap and sector markers. This is similar to the Summary Statistics window, but the calculations are based on the track markers directly rather than on sector definitions.

 Performance calculations

This tabulates several different performance metrics for the highlighted range. You can create your own performance tables on the fifth tab, for changes in your chosen variable over distance or a change in speed.

 Values table

The values table shows the values of all the variables associated with the selected points, or ranges.

 Quick xy graph

Quick XY graph offers similar functionality to the full ”XY graph” window, but can only be used to display data interactively, that is based on the currently highlighted data. It can be used to display up to 5 different variables against time or distance.

 Video camera views

Can be used to play GoPro videos associated with .RUN files.

 Realtime playback controls

Offers some controls to use the video playback (play, pause, step forward etc.)

 Layout text box

Can be used to put a note inside the analysis grid.
