Race/Lap timer

Seems the race/lap timer is only available on "true" (don't shoot me) AMG's. Turdo's post about 0-60 got me thinking about it so I did a search and only found 1 post from 2008 so here it is anew:

Looking in the manual it does seem to be "complicated" in that I'm flooring this puppy and I really don't want to start looking at this button and that button to start it/stop it. It even asks: "do you want to stop" when you tell it to? Puhleeze

Anyone actually use this setup? Should I even bother (other than as an experiment to see what it's all about).

That is (probably) the best answer to my query

It is only on true AMG's as, the SLC 43 has one They don't have race start but do have the stopwatch.

Never bothered to use it though so have no idea how simple or otherwise it is to operate whilst flapping paddles.
