Yes please ........... I am very much up for this as it will make help me make a more informed choice about what car and what manufacturer I should spend my money on.

The results would be much more meaningful and allow an easy comparison. This would be especially helpful for newbies.

Maybe we would need 2 or 3 different designs ........ come on guys, what do you think??

Have we got enough tracks for a poll yet??

What version of the APB's firmware are you using ...... v0.85 was the default ....... v1.09 is the latest and best .....

Strange reading this thread again after Sean and I first discussed the idea. It had been done before, of course, and now doubt in another 10-12 years, it will be done again .......

The lap-counting algorithm has been much improved between the the original version and the latest.

You know, no one has ever come up with that ......


I should say that as long as you use the same pieces of track it wouldn't matter which way round you lay the track ...after all, it's only a bit of fun ...

QUOTE (hankscorpio @ 30 Apr 2010, 20:49) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>After finally getty my own track up and running and tuning some of my own cars GregK had a good suggestion about a way to compare models we don't own against the one we do...

The idea was simple we develop a "test track design" from commonly available parts that any of us could build on the "Rug" for a test session.. By only using times to 1/10 th of a second even the analogue lap counter timer can be used and removes the competitive element! hopefully
...

The idea is to see not who is the fastest racer but what are the fastest cars and by how much on a "standard" track then by timing cars with "Mods" we can see which ones worked best etc.... as long as we are all honest of course... which of course we would be!

All we would need is a "track design" to begin with to start to build up a table of the best cars... Any ideas, designs etc for the track appreciated.

So who is up for doing some testing of their cars.... if we can find a dozen or so people who would like to play could make for some intersting results...

I'm game... digital or analogue it doesn't matter all are welcome.

This has turned out to be a very successful (and long) thread. It's been requested that the final test track layout be
replicated here at the beginning where it's easy to find for reference. Click on the thumbnail to enlarge, hope this helps...

An APB is not necessary as a standard 4 car powerbase will suffice or even, heaven forbid, an analogue one ......
