Lap Timers?

Lap Timers?

What are some good lap timers?

Where can I get one cheap (except ebay)?

How much do I have to spend?

Are they all compatible with Nesba beacons?

Do they all down load into a computer (usb?) so I can track my progress?

I got a used XT for $150, and it's in great shape. Looks new.
Surf the NESBA, WERA, CCS, and any other moto classifieds.
I'd say most popular ones will be compatable.
I think you need to spend more to get the computer interface and software.

Life has no instruction manual. Parts and labor can be impossible to find. Many go down the road with parts that are in need of service. A breakdown is eventual.

When I first started to race I used a mychron it worked well and its light enough that it doesn't break when it gets tossed off at 100mph. Then I got a XT....it has better features (than the old mychron), bigger display, etc...but I've had some issues with it clicking off laps it seems to miss a bunch of them???
I haven't used the new mychron but I've gotten a few for some of my buddies. Its got a big display and a bunch of features. Haven't heard any complaints.
