Test Rig currently being built to test up to 15m/s across all id, no it won't be a rug racing affair but purpose built

.

As we know Scorpius already tested at 10m/s and passed with flying colours

It's just for testing purposes , test past what the system will ever do in the real world to ensure 100% reliability..

Nothing to worry about though,firmware is rock solid and with the led beacons not buried in the slot it's already above and beyond other systems

and only needs one sensor to detect reliably as well

We're looking at 35 - 45 mph actual speed @15-20ms...

Yes, I know ssd can't achieve that speed range in stock form, you could of course move the sensor to flipper position but who wants to

With the configurable flipper what sort of speed do you think Scorpius could achieve

, I've seen NSR cars change lane flat out no problem on Scorpius competition flippers

Scorpius has track hardware at a recommended 3mm below track surface where SSD is 6 to 7mm below.
A difference of 3 to 4 mm.
We know doubling the distance with light quarters it's power.
Too close the window of opportunity is shortened. Too far the LED loses brightness.
Scorpius allows the the height of both emmiter and sensor to be played with to gain optimum performance.
Tests prove this theory with 10,000 out of 10,000 laps on Scorpius ID 24 at 10m/s speed.
So I can see Ade has a point in that the SSD transistor can never be less than 6mm from
the track surface. And of course a trap for dust. Does it still work? Yes. Is it as efficient as say Scorpius whos hardware and firmware was developed specifically for high competition use? We know it isn't.

So a few ideas as to why distance does matter
Also there are no need for led in guide flag for improved reliability , the offset beacon offers a very generous slip angle if you like show boating with loads of power oversteer, the results of angle to car being reliably detected are logged in this forum somewhere.

All good points and interesting stuff

, but even at 10ms it's way above what's ever actually raced at in the "real" world ..
