Default Stealth PT - New PTX Personal Transponder

Don't you wish your PT was much smaller and stealthy? So how about half the size and weighing less than a normal AMB PT?
The new PTX is all these and more too! It can be fitted easily in any car, even in micro or mini scale cars!!

The new PTX is the lastest advanced transponder design from MRT. It has a very low current draw, can operate down to around 2.7V (so no power related lap counting problems) and weighs less than a normal PT. It will work with both the AMBrc and new AMBrc3 systems. Anywhere you can use an AMB PT you can use a PTX.

It has a case with or without mounting tabs and a power lead that can be adjusted or replaced when required, it's also 100% waterproof and fuel proof.

The best thing is it will be available for anyone, to those with or without an AMB PT and at a very affordable price. For an additional fee a cloned number option is also available so you can keep your exisiting number if you want.

The PTX is currently in final development.. more details to follow when available!

The pics show a normal PT, a 'disguised' PT installation also a 'stealth' PTX prototype in car (and an enlargement in case you can't see it!) there's also a pre-production PTX to compare to a normal PT.

Very nice Terry, your equipment is always great looking. Any rough guesses on what this unit might cost?

Hi corallyman, we're hoping the price will come out at almost half the current price of a normal PT, it does depend on exchange rates etc. The UK/EU price will include VAT so it will add a bit to the price.

This can't be released soon enough. Great job, as always.

BTW, I love your brushed ESC, when are you going to do a brushless ESC?

Wow, I guess I'll hold off on buying 3 more AMB's then. Just pick up the one I need for now and wait for the release of the MRT units.
Is it possible to pre-order these?

Hi CypressMidWest, it's still a bit too early for pre-orders. Once we get them into production they should be easy enough to buy.
