Zeppin have released this new Voice Lap System which provides accurate lap time measurement to racers in real time. Similar to other systems on the market, you mount the IR transponder to your car and place the receiver next to the track and the system will collect your lap times. The Zeppin system will output human voice lap time announcements through the 3.5mm audio jack, which can be connected to a speaker or wireless audio transmitter (not included) and with 10 channels available you can be sure that you can collect your times even with other systems being used on track at the same time.

Seen for the first time at the toy fair in Germany, the first product introduced by Swedish company DirtChamp Design is the multiuser RC Lap Counting system called TimeR. A unique link to your laptop PC enables you to follow the racing action in real‐time. Since no cables are required the level of simplicity is yet unseen in RC lap counting. They believe that TimeR will revolutionize the way people race RC Cars. Clubs can now easily afford their own lap timing system, the basher can set up a track in their backyard and race for the win, and the racer now has the perfect tool to become the next Marc Rheinard, Adam Drake or Ryan Mayfield.

Grenit Performance of Stockholm, Sweden have introduced the RC AudioTimer 3.0, for use with any type of RC car. The product is intended for training purposes and is a lap timer which not only stores the lap times for viewing on the computer, but also speaks the driven time through the user’s head-phones after each lap. The basic idea behind the RC AudioTimer is that whereas other lap timers provide similar functionality in recording lap times, none of them inform the user directly of their performance while they’re training. This means that it is very hard to adjust driving styles and car settings according to the lap times recorded by your device. What was lacking, in short, was an easy way to monitor lap times while the last lap and car adjustment was still fresh in your mind. The RC AudioTimer 3.0 provides that feedback, speaking lap times immediately through the attached headphones.
