At the local track (SoCal Raceway) you will see about a dozen of them lined up during practice to help the pros get their setups dialed in. It was just voted WildHobbies R/C Innovation of the year in the 2001 Reader's Choice Awards. I have one coming in next week for a review but having spoke to some of the pros about it, I can already see how valuable it will be.

if lap time is important to you, this is a must.

Had one for 6 mths with no problem, except you may have problem using it under very hot temp and direct sunlight during summer. Some people may experince interference but just move the transmitting lights in different area on the car and or change your cystal frequrency will stop that.

I think orion have a tripod that sold seperately to support the unit, you can use your car stand and do much the same thing but doesn't looks at good of course.

I agree with TPhalen. It's the only hop up you can buy that will improve your driving. You can try different lines and see how it improves your laptimes. I think it's a worthwhile investment.

I dont know if I knkow you, but I know there have been times when I have walked away from a race that I thought I should have won and didnt come close, wondering if there is any way to improve my driving.

Here there everywhere. I've been here for awhile as you'll notice by the # of posts. Still look in the Hpi forum as well as some others. Good to see you here and Happy New Year.

Oh BTW you were wondering who I was earlier. I was suppose to say, "I'm "
