Avoid a Pointed-Nose Design

Do not select a design with a pointed nose. A pointed nose will make it difficult for your car to rest on the pin at the starting gate. It may also cause your car to get bumped around when the pin drops, and it can create problems for electronic timing systems. In most cases, electronic timers require something that is at least 0.25 inches in width before the system will detect it. Some cars with a very pointed nose will not trip the timer until and inch or so of the car has passed under the sensor.
