The best money I ever spent was for the MRT transponders.

Yeah your right i think AMB's are just too much especially when you can use a club one for nothing but in saying that it is one more thing not to worry about and a whole lot easier on raceday to have your own so i think i will order one of them aswell.

What do you mean clone it to your AMB?

Also Alex told me your comming to the state tittles at Easter. It would be good to catch up, are you going to be driving X-ray or your G4's?

When you purchase the MRT you have the option of cloning your AMB in
other words they give it the same transponder # as the AMB you already have.

As for prices the AMB is far to expensive you could have two of these for the same price.
Once AMB realizes there is a viable alternative they will lower their price to try a compete. (I hope)

tdr is correct. If you already have an AMB transponder, have it cloned. It does take a bit longer because you need to ship your transponder to them, but having all the same number is great. I have 2 of the MRT transponders and they both work flawlessly. They are only 1/4 of the size of the AMB's. $55 per is a smoking deal too. I guess the dollar to pound exchange rate has gotten better. I think I paid $67 each a year ago. Still a great deal in my opinion.

Default Transponder

Only the MRT can be cloned they have 21 channels the first 20 are the same
as AMB with the 21st either being cloned to the same # as your AMB or
custom that will not be duplicated by AMB or MRT.

Unless I'm reading this wrong... it doesn't work that way. You can't "eventually" get it cloned to an AMB, you have to send your AMB pt in and have it cloned first.

Yes it will be duplicated. All the numbers come from exsisting AMB transponders. The first 20 are fixed. The 21st number (if its not your clone) comes from a pool of numbers that MRT has. I don't know how many he has, but you could see a duplicate out there. But you still have 21 numbers to choose from.


VERY cool item!!
