Where did you get the Racer? Was it new or used? If used, maybe someone sold it because there was something wrong with it. New or used, maybe the coil is bad. I've used the Racer and Racer 2 on saltwater wet beach sand and it should get a dime closer to 6". What coil were you using? What mode? Did you ground balance on the wet sand.
Your post has no information so I don't think you want any help learning how to use the Racer. I think you just wanted to post, to bash the Racer. Otherwise you may have said " Took my Racer to the beach and wasn't having any luck hitting coins more than an inch deep. Help! "
I've been detecting for 42 years and the Racer and Racer 2 go deeper on the wet saltwater beach sand than any other single frequency VLF detector I've ever used. The Racer will shame a 705 on the wet saltwater sand.

My 705 isn't all that bad on the beach, but the Racers are for sure the best single freq I've used for beach, wet and dry. I am with Slick (cue theme).

This has to be a troll. Nobody's spelling is that bad. Slat water? Marko? mine lab?

Maybe you just don't "click" with Makro/Nokta machines for whatever reason. The 705 did not work for me for a couple of reasons. I wouldn't dream of saying it's crap because it's simply not the case. Some people love it and are very successful with it. It just wasn't for me.



Active detectors: Fisher F19 LTD, Nokta Fors CoRe, Makro pointer and way too many coils.
Previous detectors: Bounty Hunter Discovery, Fisher F44, Omega 8000 V6, Minelab X-Terra 705, Fisher F5

I belong to several music instrument forums, and trolls popping up is a persistent problem. However, we usually "catch um" real fast with their written grammer. While I barely passed senior English in HS, it's still easy to recognize an 8 yr old, or a moron.
On second thought, my 7 yr old GS corrects me quite often. Unbelievable how advanced intellectually children are compared to my day.

Sorry for your problems. Hopefully you spend a little time getting help for settings.
Is the Racer that much different than the Racer 2? don't have Saltwater here.
