Has anyone involved in racing try the I-Lap R/C Timing System?
I've hear goo things about this system but not sure if its just as good the AMB systems widely used today...
Here's some info from their website:

Seems pretty cheap...for about $900 you get pretty much all you need to cover 13 ft lanes. Just add a laptop and software and you're set...
the AMB systems costs around $2000 for the decoder alone!!!
