Because it's not possible to know what AMB numbers already exist or will be made in the future the PTX has other numbers that can be used if necessary. It's the same with a cloned PTX transponder there's extra numbers supplied, but whether you have a PT or not you end up with a PTX that you connect up the same as a PT. There could be another PT 'out there' somewhere in the world on the same number, because of this we end up with having alternative numbers.

Now I have a question regarding that. can we use it on mYlaps? and what happens when a AMB transponder is the same as your MRT transponder?
Hi Toughbeard, it's not possible to pick your own number as theisgroup explained, the same as with AMB PT's. Regarding mylaps and race control software etc, it's your name and your transponder number that gets entered into the system.

Hi wingracer, you only need the form when ordering cloned transponders, you send it along with your PT and use it to specify the custom options you require etc. To order a non-cloned transponder you click the 'more info & ordering' link on the www.rclaps.com main page. To answer your question about leads, the leads that are fitted can been used with Airtronics or Sanwa (remove the locating tab) or you can always fit your own if you prefer. The base can also be replaced, or an optional base without tabs fitted so you can swap between bases.

The basic Custom ID PTX transponders are the R9980, R9981 and R9984 and with customised LED & lead it's R9982, R9983 or R9985. The PTX descriptions are on the rclaps web site if you <click> the 'More Info & Ordering' link

Hi Yang, the web site ordering is not for basic clone orders you just need to send your PT to us along with your return address and PT number. We will contact you for payment after we have received your PT and your order is ready.

The web site with online ordering is for PTX 'Custom ID' transponders (non-clones) and clone re-ordering if we already have your PT number and data from a previous order where you sent your PT to us. I think we have already sorted the total to pay and shipping etc.

c)The NEW PTX cannot really be cloned, because it's got 10 available channels in it...that were probably selected randomly based on previous cloned unit I.D.'s, but if you want it cloned...you would add the cloned numbers into the 10 number mix...or can it actually hold MORE than 10...if you have more personal numbers you want cloned and added in.

d)The CLUB version, I assume is designed to be used with a scoring program being used in a NON AMBrc mod (Or in AMB20 mode) so it is only selected by the LAST digit. But, would these still work with the program in the full AMBrc mode where the 7 digit number is used?

...I know this will be a VERY popular item...can't wait to see the production price.

Here's the answers:

a) Correct.

b) Correct, no problem using them but two people can't be on the same number in the same race for obvious reasons!

c) Yes, think of the PTX as 10 PT's in one with one standard 'set' of 10 numbers plus the option to have your existing PT number programmed in. The 'custom cloned number' option is for those people who want to move over to the PTX and still keep their existing number(s).

d) The 'club' PTX is has a single 7 digit number just like any exisitng PT, except that the number is from a club rechargeable transponder. They are used by clubs instead of their normal rechargeables. Either they replace their whole set of house TP's with 10 or 20 PTX's or as many as they need.

Terry, the questions above asked by SWTour come from your other thread. I thought they were great ones and thanks Joe. Your reply was easy enough for me to understand this time. I read the thread in the past and just felt lost. I have spent the last two hours researching your threads and have not seen these questions asked before. Now if you can answer my simple questions, I may be ready to order a batch of the PTXs like... yesterday!


1) How is the lead replaceable?

2) Does the top cover or bottom cover come off to replace the leads?

3) If so, wouldn't that allow moisture to get in or am I just panicking over nothing?

4) I've haven't seen PTXs with an option of 10+1 custom #. If available is it less money to buy? Is it only available in 20+1 custom #? I'm looking to save money if possible. I have dowloaded a form and waiting to decide. Also, you have another PM. Thanks Paco.

Hi Paco, YGPM

To answer your questions..

1) The lead is replaceable by removing the base, undo 4 screws.

2) The base is removable/replaceable, it can be changed between a 3 hole tab mount base or a non tab base. To change the lead it can be cut (inside the case) and another lead soldered on.

3) The lead comes out through the sealed waterproofing so you don't effect the seal so no moisture can get in.

4) We only have the 20+1 number available, 2 sets of 10 numbers ('Set 1' and 'Set 2') plus either a Custom ID# or a Clone ID#. The shrinkwrap 'shrink' versions with 20+1 numbers are the cheapest PTX transponder version (but not waterproof or fuelproof).

Hello Terry, PM replied. I guess 20+1 cloned # is the way to go for me. Just need verification on address in PM, a few more questions and I'll will be sending you my PT.
