Time of 0.001 seconds can be recorded and 0.01 seconds will be displayed.Lights on the right side of the Xmas tree indicate the right side course, and ones on the left side indicate the left course.
Stand in a starting area and have some procedures that we call it "Staging". Staging: You first put a front wheel on a stage line, and then the pre-stage light flashes. Next you pass the stage line and stay in front of a start line, the stage light flashes. You can do "Staging" whenever you want, so that you can concentrate on the race and watch your competitor.After both riders finish "Staging", there is a pause. Three amber lights flash every 0.5 seconds in turn and then the green light flashes for your start. Off course you can predict the timing and start. However, if you start before the green light flashes, the red light will flash and it means you make a false start and lose. The time from third amber light flashes until you pass the start line will be recorded as the reaction time. The minimum reaction time is 0.50 seconds.
Same as Stock start, you stand in a starting area and do "Staging". Your skillful "Staging" can make your competitor puzzled. After both riders finish "Staging", there is a pause. Three amber lights flash in 0.4 seconds simultaneously then the green light flashes for your start. If you start before the green light flashes, the red light will flash and it means you make a false start and lose. This Pro start is much more difficult than Stock start. The minimum reaction time is 0.40 seconds.
