Default AMB transponder

i just wanted to know if anyone uses the black cover to hold down an AMB transponder? if so how easy is it to slide out the transponder i ask because they cost $4 and it would be cheaper for me to utilize one transponder in my 3 cars (Losi8E, SCTE, TC6) then buy 3...... theres enough time between races to remove it and attach it and of course i won't be running all 3 on the same day!

Thanks

Daryl

It is not to bad it all depends on where you place it and if you have a enough room to slide it in and out. I think most people just use velcro at the track I go to.

i was thinking that but i thought it might fly loose on my 1/8 and SC cars? Do you run off road with the velcro?

Thanks

Velcro work great on these, I use it on my SCTE and 8ight E with no issues of it falling off.

I have the holder and it works great. I move mine AMB between my VTA, Hyper TT, Losi Eight-T, and Losi Eight-B. Biggest thing is never pull from the wires!
