An evening race with the APB C7042

Had a racing event yesterday with some friends using the APB C7042 with the PB Pro 1,04 software upgraded. We were driving 7 heats with 4 cars on track, with some people complaining about the ending places in the race - I actually only noticed this in the final race where my neighbour seemed to have beaten me according to the C7042, but no way this could be true. I drove a perfect race without any deslots. And he drove like s...

Then today made a test pushing the 4 cars over the line several times - not one error in the lap timing. Tried pushing slow, pushing hard - lifting the front of the car just a little bit - no problems at all. The braids are brand new. Has anyone some experience in this, and what it could be else that is causing mistakes?

Next time I will have to have an accoundant noticing the laps on a piece of paper, to compare with powerbase results.

Technical question - does the C7042 for timing have both sensor and a braid "tap" registration? Cant seem to find anything but the sensor. And if so - should both be registrated to notice the lap for the car?

I had the same problem. I do have the digital lap counter. Is it worth having both for a race night as a check? Is the lap counter better (when it behaves) than the APB. Might need the odd tea break if there are too many de-slots while the lap counter re-sets but better that than the wrong winner. That was one of the problems at the first Chellaston GP. I hoped its was fixed by v1.04 but I need to find out or I may have Lars problem.
