John, 
The only other alternative is as you pass Start/Finish, start counting.  If
you count beyond 90 or so (1:30) you're too slow... or you counted too fast.
;-)
 
Good luck.
 
Brian

Thanks, all.  I'll keep Matt's advice in mind regarding its value.  Still
considering the stop watch.   John

Kevin,
Please give me a call at 301-580-8245

I believe I have a hot lap timer and a transmitter in my garage.

I sometimes use my wrist watch wrapped around a spoke of my steering wheel.
As long as you get a memory stopwatch, and remember to hit the split at the
same point during your laps, you should be able to get some idea of your lap
times.  Just write down your times after each session.  My lap times are
more consistent, too, with my stopwatch than I am with DA.  Example: I did
two laps in a row on Shenandoah during an instructor session with TrackDaze
earlier this month within .01 second!  ;-)

Laptimers (even used ones) are fantastically over priced for what they are.
Tape a stop watch to your dash until you have the capital to invest in an
entry level data system.

The use is definitely dwindling.  I and Alexander have the recievers in teh
cars.  We use to have a transmitter but it was lost.  This past year I had
issues as no one was setting the hot lap trransmitter up anymore.  Some
races we had times others we did not.  I really like the systems, however if
you get one try to find it with the transmitter.   I need to find a used
transmitter - anyone selling one?

Yes and no.  Yes in that if one person has one, you're set.  OTOH, with the
prevalence of DA systems, I saw one once two years ago at a Road Atlanta
regional.  So, I think that their use is dwindling.

I'm thinking about getting a used hot lap timer since many drivers are
upgrading to full data systems, making their timers redundant.  

I don't know much about them and have a question about the track-side
transmitter.  Does everyone put out their own?  If so, I would expect to see
pit-out littered with them and assume each box has it's own signal.  Or does
everybody just use the first guy's who puts one out?  Does maybe each track
maintain one?

I saw one one ebay, but it appeared to consist of the only display and
receiver.  Made me wonder if the transmitter is largely superfluous due to
commonality.

Thanks, John
