I believe in the instruction it states not to mount them vertical or over carbon fiber or graphite. I have run mine vertical but it also depends on the loop placement for timing and scoreing.If it is a in ground loop you will have less trouble than if it is an over head loop. I Have used both type loops at out track and had problems with the over head loop with raceres that had there transponder mounted vertical. Just my experiences

In my experience running our track, any time someone has a problem counting (missing laps) it is always a vertically mounted transponder. The signal radiates in a pattern that makes it preferable to mount the transponder horizontally.

My dad has run AMB transponders verticle in his CD3 without a problem before. like it has been said it must depend on the loop, its cut into the ground at the local track

I also have been witness to the occasional problem associated with mounting the transponder vertically. Most have no problems, but it I would mount it as the manufacturer suggests...... horizontally.

Steve,

What Scott said.

It's not worth the risk.
