ST8916 Stack MFD -
Multi-Function Dash Display

A fully configurable, clear to read display system with fast, accurate analog dial face and the clear, back-lit LCD display forms the base system with integrated datalogging capability.


ST8916 multi-function display system


The ST8916 Multi-Function Display system combines the proven benefits of integrated STACK Display systems with the latest STACK Multi-Function Technology.

Key Features


The Stack MFD comes standard with 14 inputs (enough to handle most drivetrain and driver input data streams) and can be expanded to monitor up to 45 channels for more advanced users. System includes internal voltage channel, 3 +/- 6g internal accelerometers, and lap sensor channel standard as well as 4 Universal pulse (speed) / analog (0-5v) inputs and 6 standard analog (0-5v) inputs. Lap beacon receiver and wheel speed sensor standard, to enable engine RPM, wheelspeed, g-force data and track mapping out of the box.

Stack MFD’s have 32Mb of memory, and user selectable channel recording frequencies of up to 200Hz (200 samples per second) with 10 bit resolution (16 bit digital inputs optional), with a maximum system sample rate of 4000 samples per second for a total of 20 channels able to be recorded at maximum frequencies for extremely detailed data analysis.

Optional system upgrades include:


Data Logging



Predictive Lap Timing
Predictive Lap TimingThe Stack Predictive Lap Time System sets a new standard in real time driver display technology, providing drivers a constantly updated, highly accurate prediction of their next lap time based on current preformance!

This system continuously calculates how long it has taken to get to the current position on the lap and, based on the best previous lap, it already "knows" the driver's best time from this point to complete the lap. The combination of the two times provides the predicted lap time.


DataPro Analysis Software
DataProDataPro Designer Software (part of the system package) facilitates easy “Drag-and-drop” configuration of all elements of the Data Logging system. Simply select your Driver Display System and Engineering System from the drop down lists provided, and set-up each module to meet your project’s specific requirements.

Stack’s signature DataPro software is included with each MFD system and includes a host of easy to use data analysis features listed below:

Upgrade your DataPro Standard software to DataPro Professional and gain access to unlimited Maths and Rainbow maps for the ultimate in data analysis tools.



All gauges come complete with wiring harness and associated sensor (except for fuel level gauge). System includes wiring harness, lap time receiver, speed sensor, USB interface and DataPro software.

Frequently Asked Questions


Why do Stack instruments still have analogue displays?


Stack believe that an analogue display is still superior in imparting some data quickly and accurately. The human brain can process information from analog displays far quicker than digital displays. An analogue display can tell you at a glance WHERE a value is, a digital display can only tell you WHAT the value is. This is why they are still used in cars and aircraft, even though the underlying information feed is more often than not digital.

Stack do include digital displays in our intelligent tachometers and in our dash displays where information is simultaneously displayed on a large character LCD readout. In the end, user preference is key.

Further information can be found in our Troubleshooting Knowledgebase and FAQ sections.
