    Lap timer?

    What lap timer do you guys use for the track. I have an iPhone if that helps. Lap counter is not important.

    thanks,

    Steve

    MyLaps RC4 (3-wire) Transponder for R/C Cars

    These are pretty common if your track has a setup for lap times.

    You can find used transponders online for cheap. I suggest a MyLaps Hybrid rc4 transponder.

    Right and incase you havnt realised yet, you would need a transponder mounted on the vehicle as well as a device mounted on the ground outside the track. The outside mounted device is the expensive part.
    10 RCs and counting 😅

    Couldn’t you use the Traxxas DTS-1 timing system that they market for drag races?

    Lap timer. The counter doesn't help. The timer gives me an incentive to get better. The race track post all the recent races with times. So when I'm practicing, I have a goal to reach.

    ***Update*** I bought a LapMonitor. Looks like a GoPro camera that you setup next to the track with a transponder in the RC. Works perfect. It uses a App. on your phone and tells you your lap time. I use a bluetooth earpiece. About $150 Worth every penny.
