nope

but did find

measure 3.5" X 6.5" DD. Tried it side by side to the Makro 4.6" X 5.1" OOR coil and the newer 5.5" round coil. I could tell no difference between the three depth wise on US coins, and I couldn't tell any difference between the Racer and the Racer 2. My test showed the following:
Quarter 9"
Dime 7.5"
Penny 7.5"
Nickel 6"


which is pretty impressive for a 3.5" coil

I don't like air tests, results in the ground almost always vary from air tests variants. I have a long weekend coming up so I will give it a actual hunt testing.

The shrew coil is a great addition for the Racer 2.It will out separate the out of round coil by Makro using Monte's nail board test. The 5" point coil will nudge out the shrew coil as well with the Racer 2. The oor coil works better on the red racer for whatever reason, much like it does with the Nokta Fors core but then you lose the iron volume capability but the original platform was obviously designed with the oor coil and not the racer 2's upgraded design.
