If my search capability are not that bad ...
There is no thread in this board with pictures of the Led mount !
There are only 2 threads for this LCS (excluding the 5-6 realted to selling the LCS).
I did find a nice link about LCS: http://www.rcracing.com/Page.cfm?InfoID=1493
Would be nice to keep this thread going for share experiences.
Mainly mounting the led is not the most easy thing ... on my case:
On my unique test on an outdoor track, I did notice that 3 times over 20 pass, the lap was not counted ! (and it was not a problem due to the minimum lap time).
I have a Nitro body on my 1/10 electro car, and I use the pipe hole for have the led mounted inside the car .. the led look like has a good visibility of the outside.
I did notice that mainly if I was more close to the sensor, and high speed this was more lickely to miss the lap. I did put the receiver almost at the end of the main straight
PS: Going to make more exposed my led ... I just don"t like that I will have to take care to don't brake the cable every time I remove the body of my car ...
