Our good friends from HobbyMedia.it posted an interesting story about some new timing system software from Kawada. The software is called ARSA – Advantage Race System, and the idea behind it is that it allows for a handicap of your time and laps similar to the way a handicap works in bowling or golf. Essentially letting the total newbies get out there and race with the guys who know what they are doing, and be competitive by letting the newbie’s do better based on their improvements. I think this is a pretty cool idea for the people who want to race, but hate getting crushed on the track because they just don’t have the experience, or the car/setup to compete. I’m sure all the ‘pros’ will hate it just as much as they hate a newbie getting ‘in their way’. I’d really like to see this show up over here somewhere in the USA and see how it goes.
