Iím hoping so. Iíve been using the Zeppin lap timer for few years. Works great, but itís single car only. Iíve also been using LapTracker app on my phone for small scale, and for quick testing with 1/10.

Iím starting with 4 transponders. Weíve had a ďfor funĒ 1/18 scale racing at local HobbyTown for years. Last year a few times they ran Euro Truck. And they work well on the small, tight 1/18 layout. Having a timing system might get few more interested.

See how it goes in few weeks.

How much did that cost with shipping? If you don't care to answer, that's cool too.

I've been using LapMonitor for about 6 months now... absolutely love it when I spend time at the track and the track timing is off. I run it on 3 of our vehicles and monitor with the Android app. Huge fan.

Arrived. These are the newer transponders. Supposed to be waterproof. Not that plan to run in rain. But when they asked, figured can’t hurt.

First test with the lap monitor. Works fine. No problem with transponder under body being blocked. I’ve had this with the Zeppin system. Did have to be sure transponder was facing toward the timer as it passed. Same as the Zeppin. I’ll try to get a basic video up soon. Need my small camera

Had a small problem yesterday with it. Similar to the Zeppin. Wasn’t counting every lap. If wasn’t passing within 3 feet, it missed lap.

Hi Billy,

Less than 3 feet is an unexpected very small range. Was the transponder facing a painted body area ?
To get good range the transponder must be in front of a clear body area like the window or a hole
Could you post a picture of your transponder install ?

Thanks,
Franck

Was towards back of car. Itís a RTR fully painted body. I thought the body might be the cause. Iíve had that with the other system.

Working great tonight. Almost too much range now. It picked up transponder during a spin, a good 15 feet away.
