I recently purchased the RCP track system and am interesed in starting a race series here in Bermuda.

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to what timing systems are suitable for mini-z racing.

thanks skink.

ko propo arc makes one specifically for the mini-z...

amb-it makes one for r/c cars in general...

others use laser pointers.... and there are some others...

try to do a search on ' lap counters' or 'lap counting systems'

welcome to the forums

there have been so many threads already about timing systems. Good ones are the lap-z system but I heard the software is the weak point for the moment.

If you're handy enough make one yourself. With some lazer pointers, some photo transistors and free software you can make it work. You don't need to be an electronical engineer ... if you know your way with a soldering iron, you can do it.

thanks for the info.

i'll look into the ko propo and amb-it.

I was under the impression that the latter would be too large and therefore not suitable for mini-z ,especially the f1s.

thanks skink :cool:

Another vote here for CORE.

There are a lot of members here that use it so you can typically find help if you need it.

core can't sale outside the US, so unless you have connections in the US it might be difficult to get.

I have a Core system and it's great.

Thread was started in 2004. I was there in 2006 and never contacted this person not did the LHS have any mini-z's.
