The product, called PC-Race 96, has external Race-VM interactive and external BMX-VM optimised file-transfer modems and is compatible with other PC Race modems.

Users can choose the Race interactive mode and BMX block file transfer mode to combine both communication styles in one modem. The PC-Race series offers modular compatibility with other modem standards, as follows: the PC-Race 96 offers 9,600bps interactive, 19,200bps BMX file transfer, both fully error corrected, for $795; the PC-Race 24 at $595 is CCITT V22 compatible with MNP Level 4; and the PC-Race 24/96 offers a combination of the two at $995. The product can be field upgraded to PC-Race 24/96 from either initial version. Either version can be upgraded to PC-Race 24/96. PC-Race series modems are compatible with the Hayes command set and have enhancements that allow parameter settings by the personal computer communications software.
