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.
The new three wire ones with an mrt trade in are only $35. The two wire ones are $83. I know most guys will jump on the cheaper one.

AMB is doing everything they can to move back to a closed system where you have no option but what they offer. No thanks.

Unfortunately for those that do, very few tracks will have a decoder that will work with them... so spending $35 (+60 for the MRT you are trading in) on something that wont work for you for potentially some time to come is a bad investment overall.

Now that things have settled down, does anyone have any info on pre-tech?

Will it be open Weds and if so, when?

Will all cars be required to have gone through pre-tech before the first round of controlled practice on Thurs morning?

Thanks!

Which one is a bad investment? 2 or 3 wire?
