Just curious to know, Thanks!!
Well, it's better if the transponder is way up front so that it can be detected first when you pass the lap sensor. This is just my opinion. The guys in our local track are trying to put their sensors way up front as far as they can

Same here. I also experienced that problem. That is one main reason why I opted to get the Kawahara ones

You got that right I saw one picture in the net which showed the transponder being mounted on the foam bumper. A cut-out was made to accomodate the transponder :laughing:

so crazy placement!! If there is the accident, the transponder must go to Hell~~~

But how you fix the sensor on the Kawahawa one?

I must agree... this is probably the worst design on the car. I use the Skyline hubs. They are similar to the Kawahara and work great.

The Kawahara bumper will be mounted below the foam bumper in which you can still use the foam bumper to accomodate the transponder

There is no pit on the Kawahara bumper. The Kawahara bumper replaces the part below the foam bumper. Once mounted, you can put the foam bumper on top of the Kawahara bumper. You can then make a cut on the foam bumper to accomodate your transponder Hope this helps

Will try to take a post a picture later. The Kawahara bumper is wider than the stock bumper. What I'm pertaining to is the plastic bumper and not the foam bumper. This is the part mounted to the chassis bellow the foam bumper
