  • Design, build, and test any drag vehicle in seconds
  • Simulate automobiles, dragsters, and motorcycles 
  • Model front or rear-wheel drive vehicles
  • Model 1/8 or 1/4-mile drag races
  • Instantly see the potential of any component
  • Display & print vehicle data and color graphics
  • Compare up to four vehicles
  • Test driveline, gear ratios, tires, wheels, and more

How It Works

Enter any engine power curve, or test engines you've designed in DynoSim5 or DeskTop Dyno5 (you can even test a variety of jet and rocket power plants!). Test any manual or automatic transmissions, any gear ratios, any vehicle weight, wheelbase, driving style, weather conditions and more! Change com ponents with  just a mouse click—drag-race times are instantly updated. A PopUp TimeSlip™ provides an easy-to-read visual summary of overall vehicle performance. Nothing could be easier! Test and compare up to four vehicles at once. Includes powerful Iterative Testing™ that runs multiple tests and finds the best gear ratios, shift point, and more for any performance or racing application, automatically! DragSim5™ is the most powerful and easy-to-use straightline vehicle-dynamics simulation you can buy!

Software Overview: DragSim5™ simulates virtually any Automobile, Dragster, or Motorcycle using front- or rear-wheel drive! DragSim5™ performs a comprehensive simulation of the physics that act on the vehicle as it accelerates from a standing start to terminal velocity 1/8- or 1/4-mile down track. This comprehensive analysis determines vehicle performance, inch-by-inch, throughout the entire race. The results display looks similar to a professional data-acquisition system! You'll clearly see exact elapsed times, speeds, rpms, starting at rollout to 60 feet, 330 feet, 660 feet (1/8-mile), 1000 feet, and 1320 feet (1/4-mile).  ETs and speeds can be compared with up to four other vehicles to help locate the best component combinations.

User Interface And Features: DragSim5™ has a completely unique user interface built from the ground-up to be clear and easy use. You'll find vehicle component parts and specifications on the left side of the screen, and simulation results on the right! Eye-popping graphics are enhanced with QuickAccess™ buttons and DirectClick™ menus that let you change parts simply by clicking on any component shown on screen. Analyze engine RPM, Clutch RPM, Acceleration, Tire Slip, Distance, ET, Aero Drag, and much more (discussed below). All data and graphs can be printed (and previewed) in color on any Windows printer. You can even model several vehicles at once; just click on a Vehicle Selection Tab to focus-in on any vehicle you choose.

Even though this program is very sophisticated, DragSim5™ was carefully designed to never overwhelm you with data. An easy-to-read, Pop-Up TimeSlip™ provides an instant summary of the performance potential of any vehicle. A quick glance will help you make judgments about gear ratios , shift points, vehicle weight, and it can even help you evaluate traction and wheelspin. Similar in appearance to the paper time slip delivered to racers at the end of a run, you'll find Motion's Pop-Up TimeSlip™ a helpful, at-a-glance feature.

The DragSim5™ also incorporates exclusive technology that helps you find optimum combinations for any vehicle faster and easier than ever before. To start off, DragSim5™™ includes a Traction Calculator™ that optimizes tire/track modeling and improves accuracy. A simple button click begins a comprehensive series of hundreds of thousands of calculations to determine the tire/track adhesion model that best simulates read-world conditions. You'll also find a mazing Iterative Testing that lets you "home in" on the best parts combinations, automatically! Click just one button in the Quick-Iterator™ and the DragSim will perform hundreds, thousands, or even millions of drag tests! The Iterator™ keeps track of all the results, and displays the best combinations for you to review. You'll find the setup that delivers the quickest ET or the fastest MPH for any street or racing application!

ProTools™: Professional racers and serious enthusiasts need all the modeling power they can get. The ProTools™ included in DragSim5™ extend the functionality of many program features. For example, the ProIterator™ lets you perform fully custom testing, DataZones™ give you the most graphing and data analysis power possible, ProData™ includes a new table of extended vehicle pe rformance data, and ProPrinting™ prints out a comprehensive test report that can include your name, address, company logo, glossaries, and all ProData™ values. If you're serious about drag racing analysis, the DynoSim5 with ProTools™ was made for you!

Technical: DragSim5™ simulates the complex physics involved in 1/8- and 1/4-mile drag racing, including the incredible range of forces that act on automobiles, dragsters, or motorcycles at the starting line. But you can leave your physics books on the shelf, because the DragSim5™ makes complex vehicle analysis as easy as 1, 2, 3. Pop-up menus allow you to enter any engine power curve (also import DynoSim5 and DeskTop Dyno5 engine files) . You can even test jet or rocket power plants! Then choose vehicle components from simple drop-down menus or enter custom specs for automatic or manual transmissions, torque converter stall-speed, launch rpm, shift rpms, up to six transmission gears with virtually any gear ratios, rear-axle ratios, vehicle weight, wheelbase, front- or rear-wheel drive, frontal area, aero drag, tire width, rollout distance, ambient temperature, humidity, wind speed, and more! Internal "watchdogs" eliminate conflicting choices (like an rpm redline rpm set lower than a shift rpm, etc.), ensuring accurate performance predictions.

Users Manual: The DragSim5™ is supplied with a full-color, 100+ page, on-disk Users Manual (directly accessible from within the program) that details the features of this comprehensive simulation. If you wish, you can download a copy of this manual to preview the capabilities of t his software before you buy! Jump to our Support Page to download the DragSim5™ manual (and, if necessary, Adobe Reader to view the manual on your PC).

Requirements: The DragSim5™ runs on any Windows95/98/Me/XP Vista/ or Windows 7 equipped IBM-compatible PC. A basic SVGA video system is required (minimum 800 x 600; 1024 x 768 or greater is recommended). A Windows-compatible printer required for test reports. A CD-ROM drive is also required. A complete DragSim5™ install requires approximately 120MBytes of disk space.

What The Pros Say About The DragSim:

Distills complex drag racing science down to a simple mouse click. Easy for the beginner, yet sophisticated enough for the pro. John Baechtel, former Editor of Hot Rod and Car Craft Magazines, member of exclusive 200mph Bonneville Club, member SAE, computer graphics whiz, and current owner of Westech Performance dyno testing facility.

In itial tests predicted my ETs exactly. Very helpful in evaluating any racing combination. Pete Briggs, Champion motorcycle engine designer and builder. Pro Stock motorcycle competitor.

Program computes in seconds what my years of experience and sixth sense predicted. Extremely easy to use. Louie Hammel, Edelbrock R&D technician/dyno operator, Nitrous Oxide Systems director of R&D, and developer of Speed Block Holley replacement metering system.
