View Full Version : Programming the 8971

Is there a particular reason that MSD created the 7570 unit to program the 8971? Would it be possible to just create a software program to allow users to program the 8971 using a laptop computer? I know the 8973 allows that capability with the ProData software, but a racer still needs the 7570 to work with the 8971.

The 7570 was created because of racer and crew chief demand. At the time that the equipment was being developed Laptops weren't as cheap and accessible as they are now.
