Default 3 Cars, 1 Transponder

Hi all,

I'm currently running 3 cars in 3 different classes on the same night. I only have one MRT transponder and currently use velcro (hook & loop) to swap from car to car. It's not great (seems to deteriorate quickly), any other ideas out there, what do you use if in the same position?

Cheers.

Realistically get another transponder. I did that for a while with an AMB transponder( three tab). It was more a pain than anything. Only other thing i have seen from drivers at our track was zip tied!

I switched from hook n loop to this 3m product.. https://www.uline.com/BL_6418/3M-Dual-Lock?keywords=3m
maybe loop for transponder holder like the amb one or make your own..1 know whats its like to run several classes and have a single transponder.

I've ordered the 3M product it looks good. Fitting a post is also a great idea, food for thought. Thank you.

I purchased the 3M Dual Lock, it's really impressive! I wasn't aware of this product and at the moment it appears it will do the job nicely. It doesn't look as if it will deteriorate over time but to make the thread useful for others in the future I'll report back if it does.

Thank you for your help.

I would think it would be much easier going honda's way as u would just have to stick it somewhere and it'll work, even looks like he made a spot for a body clip. atleast when i think of getting to my receiver box every car would take me 10-15 mins alone to tidy it all back up where (..pita) honda's is just throw and go so to speak.

the battery is a good idea, the biggest problem I see is when the wires in the rx plug get F'd up by the constant plugging / unplugging, great solution imho

Hi so far using the battery system for my
transponders has worked great since I
use them for hand outs for people that
don’t have them for club racing.I have been doing this
for 5 years now and no broken wires.
