Are you refering to a Personal Transponder? If so you can most likely buy it any big race. If not try it direct from AMB.

There has been a recent price increase, so if you can find them still below $80+ snap one up.

well, sorta, they orion has there transponder system, but it's only meant for personal use, not fro running a race club. Heres a good analogy:: In stock touring, you can use a xxx-s, that works awesome, with little work needed. You can also run a traxxas 4-tec, which takes a ton of work to get it to compete well. In the end, they both work, it's just how much work you want to do, the prices are about the same too.
