Question What lap timer you guys using?

I'm tired of always renting the transponder type lap timers and hoping that the moon and stars line up correctly for the dang thing to actually work...

So i'm thinking about investing in a GPS lap timer. Doesn't need to be too fancy, but what can be said about the Starlane Stealth GPS 2?

I think the Lap Timers that are rented are the problems. You never know if you are going to get one that works.

MiniXT worked great for me. Sold it to another member on the board here though.

Check the classifieds section if you're in the market.

I've used the RacePack G2x ($1000 with Dash), Starlane Athon GPSR ($850ish), the XT Ultra-Lap ($200ish), and the XT Mini ($90).. all get the job done...

In my opinion for a big bike the Starlane Athon or the XT GPX Pro would work the best, since they both are GPS and provide a lot more data then just laptimes.

For minis I think the XT Mini is the best!

If your interested in buying a Starlane Athon or XT Mini for cheap - PM me know.

The XT GPS Pro is vastly superior to the StarLane unit. Be sure to check it out before purchasing. I put up a couple of threads with sample data
a few months ago that you can find.

I use it for capturing data from students I am instructing. I run a g2x on my bike. Great unit in terms of sophistication and capabilities, second only to MoTec in my opinion.

Just installed the XT GPX with data acquisition...it was a breeze and is relatively inexpensive for what you get. There was one on the WERA board for sale for 350..new in box.

Retail is 650ish
