This thing looks great. It will be out in late June. I wonder if it will work with more than one car at a time. There is no other info on it besides what is under the description. You can't beat it for the money.

I have been using the grenit lap counting system more than a year and it is great.

The best feature is that you can hear with a special receiver and ear phones every lap time live, and also you can download all your laps to your computer.

For more info just type grenit in red rcnet, the site grenit.com doesnt seem to work.

No it's a personal lap counting, you can buy separately the transporter if you have many cars and you don't want to transfer it from car to car.

If you want to download the laps to you computer you must also purchase the cable.

The best thing about the system in comparison with others is that you can hear you lap in every pass and check live your pace. You will be amazed how useful it's and you will discover that slow is fast. Progressively you will understand were you made a mistake that cost you some time in one lap.

The lap counting has some other features also you can read them in the site of grenit.

Default New lap time system?

Hi there,

just anyone know anything about ProLaps?

http://www.relightech.com.tw/

I've found it when looking for Traxxas apps on iTunes:

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/prola...507967990?mt=8

It seems a Chinese try of an affordable lap time system but the website doesn't tell anything about prices, where it'll be sold, etc...
