Default a cheaper alternative

If your track is using amb check this cheaper alternative. I use it in my car at my local track and it works perfectly. It uses less power, has a smaller form factor, can be customized and is fully compatible - not to mention it is half the price. http://www.rclaps.com It is manufactured by a company called MRT in the UK.

Couple of questions. I went to their website and couldn't figure a couple of things out?

The 20 standard? Are they always the same 20 numbers in them??? Or are they a random 20 numbers? Are these 20 numbers just numbers that are specific to MRT transponders or are they 20 numbers from other transponders that they have cloned in the past?

I ask this because there was an event (don't remember which) that stated in the rules that if 2 of the same transponder number register in the same class then the person who had the original AMB transponder was the person who got to use the number. If they were both cloned then the person who registered first got to use the number.

The custom number? Would that be the number of one of my current transponders I own? Do they still require a transponder to be sent in or have they figured out how to clone the signal without the original on hand?


Thanks

i just purchased three of them and will be ordering more.work perfect.

every one they sell has the same 20 numbers on it.you can select between any of them by counting the flashes of the led on it. they also have one extra number slot for a "cloned" number.you can send your amb transponder(if you have one and want to wait)to them so they can verify the number then they will program it into their transponder for you.that way you could have all your transponders match your original amb transponder #,since you own the original,you would have precedence at a race if their was a conflict(highly unlikely anyway).now you would have 21 numbers to choose between.

if you dont send them an amb one to clone,they will add a number from what i assume is from a pool of transponder #'s that they have already cloned.you still get 21 numbers to choose from.now you have the same 20 numbers as everyone else,plus 1 random number.the 21 st number on mine were all different.
nice people to work with as well. i beleive his name on this site is terry s.
