NASA Timing Transponders

Can anyone fill me in on the transponders used in NASA?


Talking with another AI racer I understand that it is required, and it is from AMB. From what I can tell from the event registration I can rent it for $50. There is a passing mention of it in the rules, but no details. I can't find anything on my region's website either.


Is it the "TranX260" system? Any preferred suppliers other than direct from AMB? For $300 it pays for itself in 6 races...

The last three I bought were from On Track Performance. Very well priced there. I don't know if there are different types, but I've always gotten the right one. Use the hard wired version instead of the rechargeable.

Yes, it is the AMB transponders for club racing. You can rent them or buy them whichever you prefer, and I would recommend the hard wired ones as well, the battery ones eventually start losing there charge when you need them most... at the end of a race


We sell them at all of our events, but the price is pretty much universal, I have seen them on ebay once in a while, but they usually go for almost full price.


AMB has a lock on the market - at least until 2005
