Default Dirt champs lap timer OR subscription to VRC PRO

Ok guys, a bit of a strange thread, but just after some food for thought.
I am on a budget, I race one class, 4wd mod buggy, and I wanna be the best I can be.
So I have a choice to make. I can get a $400 dirt champ lap timer for xmas / bday pressy. Or I can get a 12 subscription to VRC PRO ($120).
Which choice is going to help me improve my time around the local track.
Points to concider, I cannot live at the track, so actual practice time is limited to maybe once a week. But how much is VRC going to help my real life times?

I found VRC Pro to be very realistic and help out significantly since I can't be at the track more than once a week, either...

Definitely VRC. In addition to practicing all week if you wanted to, you have the ability to run on-road 1/12th scale which will improve your driving skill faster than anything else (in my opinion).

Ok, thats 2 reponses that confirm VRC PRO is going to be the more effective tool to improve my ability over knowing what my actual times are.
