Yes,

iPT is just a clone of your original AMB. The most important feature (at least for me) is that you have 1 number to remember to all your cars

It has to be a track that has an AMBrc or AMBrc3 system. (one that will accept personal transponders) It will not work with the older AMB systems.

There is 3 or 4 of us that race regularly together that have the clones, they work no problems at all, I personally got 4 of them, now I only need to have 1 transponder number no matter what car I am running.

What happens when people start selling these cloned PTs and dupes start to show up at races?

Hi EricW,

The one with the original AMB should have preference.

Correct!!

All i-PT's have the name of the owner moulded inside the case so we know who to kick

Arrow Congratulations

Hello MRT guys.
I want to congratulate you on producing yet another great RC product.
I was impressed when I discovered you had produced the number selectable car powered AMB20 transponder, but the i-PT is pure genius!
Well done guys.

best regards

Thanks Jeff The i-PT has proved to be a popular RC product!

Our new PTX personal transponder is similar to the 'number selectable' T1-10 concept but for the AMBrc and AMBrc3 systems.
We've also got more planned for our AMB20 product line

Seeing that it needs to be imported a system works out around R40000 to R45000 thats like $5700 to $6400 after shipping and customs duty and vat.
You guys must have big taxes down there... we just bought AMBrc with 20 rental PT's, they bought back our old AMB20 and 18 working transponders we had, it worked out approx 3000 US$, with shipping but before VAT. We did gather transponder orders from people and ordered those at the same time, this helped to spread the shipping cost.
I think AMB still offers discount if you ship back your old AMB20 and transponders.

Gee what else could you come up with?
If it is a Transponder Tester than I have beaten you on that one.
[warning - shameless self promotion ahead]

Works with AMB20's, AMBrc's and PT's.
Does not require batteries or external power.
Ready to use anywhere, anytime to prove a transponder's signal strength.
Popular with Race Directors.

Most software would not put two of the same transponder numbers in the same heat...if the two numbers showed up at the track 'on the same day' and 'in the same class', I'd agree...the original TRANSPONDER from AMB should have first right. But what would be the difference in this verses a guy who has had 3 or 4 clones made...and loans a couple of them out on race day...and OPPS two or 3 end up in the main...NOW YOUR Up a Creek...but there's probably a bigger chance of that happening, than the other.

It also seems in this day and age... almost every race I go to, guys have 3 or 4 different transponders w/ different numbers...so if too many showed with the same number, I'd bet within 2 minutes...someone could borrow one and resolve the problem quickly.
