For lapcounting I think this is the best choice:

@Roelof

I have the Orion LCS and used in in electric touring. With those bodies it is easy to mount the IR transmitter and let it send through the windows.

Have you found a good way to mount the IR diode under a Lola style bodyshell?

Any explanations and/or pix would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks and have a good day

Stefan

You can always get this:



and mount it in the side of the body.

Ledholders comes in all kind of shapes and can be found at any local radioshack or otherwise some online electronics shop. And with a piece of aluminium or plastic you can drill a 5mm hole to glue in the LED and right beside that a 3mm hole for mounting it with a nut and a bolt
(Once I made a lapcounter in this way)

I think the LED is a standard IR led costing nothing more than 20 cent. Because the original LED is easy to replace you can give it a try but be sure you connect it the rigt way. The markings are a flat spot and a shorter pin.

cool, then i better just stick a LED to all my bodies, since replacing it is just a normal IR LED...
