My 1st try on both
Test 1
Avg: .2202 - Best .21 - Worst .23

After a few trys - Best .12!

Test 2
38 clicks, 39 clicks then 38 clicks


Kinda resembles my racing style on a good day. A tenth a lap off the "fast laps" but very consistant.

Yes it will, the transmitter will work as a 2 axis game pad.
You connect the receiver to the adapter and can play NFS with your radio laying in your bed, is this cool or what

Just some notes on the reaction time testing....
Test #1 is the most accurate reaction tester.
Test #2 adds a little hand eye coordination to the mix, but don't take this test too seriously because it's highly contingent upon how well you are accustomed to mouse sensitivity. For example, if you do test #2 on someone elses computer, you'd score lower since you aren't used to the combination of mouse speed and screen resolution.

As for test #1, it has been very consistent over the years with any browser and almost any speed computer. I have noticed that really old computers (Pentium II's or older) seem to record your reaction times slightly slower. But anything over 1 ghz should be very accurate from computer to computer.

In person, I've seen many people test their reaction times over the years and the average times I've seen is .25 - .33 seconds. This is accurate with national statistics stating the average person's reflex time is about .25 of a second. So, if you are faster than that, congrats! You've got fast reflexes.

Don't forget to press start, then immediately press and hold the stop button. Release the mouse button when the background changes color. This tip will eliminate the time it takes to press down and release. Releasing your finger off the mouse button is about as accurate as it can be.

You will have to upgrade your grafics card. I had the same problem, my pc at home would not run it, its older. My laptop is newer and runs it no problem.

Where did you get this device? I assume it is a usb device that hooks up to your RX!


Thanks for your help
