    Lap timer

    Any recommendations on a decent lap timer? I Don't want to spend a fortune on one at this moment. Something inexpensive and one that will automatically start recording for me... I am not knowledgable on this topic what so ever. Any advice or feedback would be great from guys who have them. Thanks

    Sport bike track gear. I think about 200. Keep looking on EBay where I found mine for about $50.

    What brand and model do you have boog? Does it automatically start at the track? They have sensors Im guessing... I know I know, dumb question but shit I don't know.

    When you pass the transmitter (if the track has one, I bought my own)the lap timer starts. It takes a little setting it up correctly. Miguel helped me figure out how to set it up. Just a few AA batteries and youíve got 1 more thing to play with. Haha. I have only used mine successfully a couple times. Like I said I had to have help.

    XT mini would be my choice. No cords just velcro it on. I think they're around 129 new.

    Most of the track day organizations will set up a beam on the pit straight and let you know on which side of the track it is located. Pretty simple really. Just turn your timer so that it picks up the beam as you go by. I have the XT and it is easy to use but would believe the Mini would be better since it is an all in one unit.
