i will get one shortly.

you can use the kyosho ics loop with generic transponders using 3rd party free software or the core analog loop with generic transponders and corespeedway or 3rd party software.

from what i've read and seen of the home edition, it's stinks. it's great for the absolute basics but thats about it.

Home Edition

Not to highjack, but we use the Kyosho home edition at our shop and it works great with zround. Awesome solution- has never missed a lap yet. I also have giro-z and core hardware. Home edition reminds me of the core system.

As for the v2 transponders, we have them for mini-z. I would not recommend them for dnano. Good luck putting them under a windsheild!

As for other options- I know that Realtracks is working on a single car laser lap counter. Maybe that would work for you?

you can use the Kyosho IC Tag Lap Counter + Mini Z IC Tags... we're still having issues with missed lap counts but i believe that's a symptom of the sensitivity of the hardware and the need for a PC with really high specs to pick up all the data. we're planning on resurfacing the circuits at nanotrax with a seamless solution which should resolve the problem

flipside reported that the kyosho ics loop requires very close proximity to the transponder where as the core analog loop has a good 6" of signal depth so it may be that the signal strength of the ics loop was cut down. this could account for missed laps or the fact that the weaker loop signal may be the culprit?
