Notsure if its the rightthing to do or notbut I layed my chassis on a flat surface dropped the transponder in the hole(The ears are off mine) and then used a small amount of shoe goo on all 4 sides from the top. It is locked in and the bottom of the transponder is flush with the bottom of the chassis. Seems to work fine....It counted for me perfectly at CEFX last Saturday.

Bill, that's a great idea. I'm going to try it tonight with my earless transponder.

Given that I'm running a KO 949 servo (and for some stupid reason) they drilled the mounting holed so that it hangs to the left, I was thinking of shoe-gooing it flat and to the right.
Anyone?

I wish PTs weren't so expensive... I bought mine from Tamiya about 3 years ago for $55....

I switch it between vehicles too often to shoegoo mine in... but it's a great idea

I would buy another one but I can't justify the price now since I paid so little before...

dam...

maybe I'll take a piece of scrap lexan and make a rectangle a little bigger than the PT hole and put holes in it that match where the ears would be... put that on the bottom of the chassis, with or w/o screws (maybe shoe goo)... put velcro on THAT then mount the earless transponder with velcro in the PT hole attached to the lexan...


hmmm

That's actually how I had my PT mounted on my 3.2... I took some lexan, ShooGoo'd it over the hole and have velcro on the bottom of my PT....

I actually need to put a small washer over the nuts, my PT is hanging a little too low through the chassis for my liking... If I bottom I'd rather not have the PT hit....

Actually it could be much worse, I have the Nomadio in there but no sensors connected... My 3.2 was much worse... I don't know if the Nomadio is going to stay in the car, I'm bringing my 3PK with FM and Spektrum, I've been having radio issues....
