Sorry Sam. I have up chew for lent. And since this is a roar event, there will be no alcohol allowed on the perimisis.

AMB is actually offering a sweet deal on the new transponders. They reduced the normal price to 86.00 now and also they are taking MRT Trade in's as well. a MRT and 35.00 gets you a new RC4 AMB.

There are 2 compatable transponders right?
  • RC4 - can only use a RC4 decoder
  • RC4 Hybrid - can use RC2, RC3, RC4 decoder

I may be wrong but ..if you use an RC4 decoder, then MRT and some the older transponders no longer work.

I was curious how long it would be before this topic came up.

The $35 is a pure 3 wire RC4 transponder trade-in that cant be used with an RC3 or earlier decoder... so only do that if your track is converting over to an RC4 decoder (and essentially banning MRTs). The RC4 Hybrid transponder that works with all (RC2/3/4) decoders costs ~ $85 to trade in for. Still cheaper than the $120 that the RC4 Hybrid goes for, but not a great deal when you spent $60 already on an MRT.

I know all my cars roll MRTs at this point so I am not keen on seeing an RC4 decoder at the track.

Also note that the transponder trade-in takes 2 months to turn around right now. I contacted MyLaps last month about how long it would take and they told me 60+ days from when you mail your transponder to them to get the replacement.

The key point here, is if you get a RC4 transponder .. Anywhere you race must have an RC4 decoder to work.

If a track upgrades to an RC4 decoder .. then they essentally ban all other transponders (except the RC4 and RC4-Hybrid).

SO, you pretty much want an RC4-Hybrid if your going that route.

Sorry for the side note, back to Nats talk.

+1 Our plans are to come with an RC3 box, but we want to possibly have some backups available for guys that may have the full RC4 3 wire units that will not work with the RC3 box.

No.. HORSHAM has no plans of changing anything for the rest of the season.

Roar uses there own decoder boxes for the nats.
The brand new transponders (3 wire) will only work with the new decoder boxes.
And the mrt clones will not work with the new decoder box.
Amb(my laps) is trying to get all tracks to change over to the new decoder box, so the clones won't work anymore.You can still by the two wire my laps transponders. So not sure why you would buy the three wire one.

It seems to me Amb(mylaps) is trying to stop other companies from cloneing there transponders.
