Simple answer...

You NEED a lathe, a lap counting system is NICE to have.

yeah with a lathe you can cut your tires and have your set-up for a race

but with a counter all u can do is get laptimes
and your buddy can use a stop watch

I don't know if you meant Comm lathe or Tire lathe, but I'd get either before a lap counting system....unless by lap counting system you mean personal transponder...

Many tracks will let you use a house transonder or use your personal transponder for timed practice laps...

Some tracks will provide a truer on site..and some shops will offere a comm cutting service...

I guess really it's a question of what facilities and services are available to you locally....but the lap counting system seems to be the easiest to do without..
