Personal Transponders

There has been some talk about the new timing system update from MyLaps (formally AMB) The is the computerised system that counts your laps when you race. There is a new update available for the timing equipment. We are using version RC3, the new version is RC4. As far as we understand it there are the following types of transponders that work with our system RC3

  • AMB Handout transponders
  • AMB Personal transponders
  • MRT Personal transponders

The old style AMB transponders are no longer available and you have the option of buying either a ‘Harry’ personal transponder or a ‘Purcy’ personal transponder.

The ‘Harry’ PT will work with our system fine, even if we upgrade our equipment. Works with RC3 and RC4
The ‘Purcy’ PT will only work with RC4
The AMB Handout transponders will work with our system, RC3 and 4
MRT Cloned transponders may not work with the new system RC4 but work fine with RC3

We as a club have decided that for the foreseeable future we will not be upgrading our system to RC4 as it works fine at the moment as there are a large number of MRT clone transponders in use. If you are looking to purchase a personal transponder we suggest you go down the ‘Harry’ route as these will work with other clubs timing equipment should they upgrade to RC4

One point we feel we must make is that handout transponders are no longer available to buy new so there will come a time when we may no longer be able to supply them at our meetings. This means that personal transponders will be required to race at some stage in the future. However we have managed to replace the batteries in our old handout transponders and keep them going strong at the moment.

We hope this clears it up a bit?

Happy New Year

Due to polar demand we have decided to run two on road indoor events. These events will be at our indoor venue and will be using the full indoor track with pitting in the adjacent hall. This gives us a massive carpet track making racing bigger and better.
We will cater for all on road classes but it is aimed mainly at:

GT12 (Schumacher and Mardave variants)
Touring Cars Stock: 17.5 Blinky and 27 turn brushed.
Touring Cars Open: Anything faster than the above!
Minis (Open Motors)

If there is enough of any other class such as

12th Scale
or any thing else we will cater for them no problem!

Trophies to the top three in each class where we know there will be enough attending. (10 or more)
