What is  Lane Rotation  ?
See Lane Rotation

I have your DOS version can I upgrade to this version?
Yes, Your existing sensor cable will plug into the new interface board.  The interface board sells for $65
Your old relay interface cable will not be required, the relay will be connected to the interface board.

The software displays Median, what is Median?
If you have a Median of 3.52 seconds, it means 50% of your lap times are below 3.52 and 50% are above 3.52 seconds.  This is more meaningful then average lap time because if you crash and it takes 20 seconds to retrieve your car it will not distort the median.
