Todays announcement

Massive Investment in New Timekeeping Technology for Karting Australia Clubs.

Just want to ask 4 questions

1. How much is it costing the karters to upgrade

2. What is the advantage?

3. How is it going to bring new karters into the sport?

4. How will it redress the loss of karters?

YTF..

Does this mean they have dropped CMS and going back to my laps software? or are they taking up the supercar timing system where lap splits are timed?

Does this mean that all the AMB transponders are no longer going to be used and will need to be discarded like the yamaha engines?

How much is the "massive" investment i wonder.

I wonder who is going to pocket the massive amount of money and who's mate it is this time.

It is backwards compatible with older transponders prior to X2. Not quite sure what benefits are to be had though !

I am guessing the money is to be made by the sale to karters of the individual kart display systems which show real-time information like:

  • Number of laps remaining
  • Gap to next kart in front and behind
  • Own lap time
  • etc

So it looks like a change of rules is coming soon to allow this communication to the kart to be legal.

So they give this stuff away to clubs free so that the karters will spend the money upgrading their displays.  But if you want other kart information like revs, temp, etc, well you're going to have to buy a supplemental unit anyway.  So I can see this potentially costing the new karter more money not less.

Why are you so obsessed with numbers Di?  LOL

dosnt your data logger tell you all your needs,

Read somewhere the mychron 5 connected to the x2 opens up more info on your dash, Main one being gap to kart in front and behind........................I think lol

When theres only 3 others in your class it seems pointless..

Did I read correctly?
"Importantly, it will come at NO COST to State Associations, Clubs or Drivers."

Does that mean the board members are paying our of their own pocket?

"Importantly, it will come at NO COST to State Associations, Clubs or Drivers."

Really ???

I wonder where those golden eggs came from ???

Presumably not from State Associations, Clubs or Drivers and activities that related to them ???

No possible alternate uses of those funds for State Associations, Clubs or Drivers ???

Next we might be asked to believe that BHP gave away $1 billion at NO COST to the shareholders !!!

I don't get how you can find a negative out of this announcement.

Some of the money that have raised is being put back into the sport.  It costs the karter no more than it did yesterday.  I'd be up in arms if it meant that I had to buy a new transponder(s) but it's business as usual with upgraded timing equipment.

If Mylaps want to sell me more info, then that's up to me.  

Not everything that KA does is bad.  I just wish they would spend some of that money they have raised to buy some land in Sydney to build a track.
