A local quarter midget club called us recently with regards to their failing MyLaps Tranx2/3 decoder system. They contacted MyLaps Sports Timing and discovered that the Tranx3 system is approaching End of Life (Tranx2 ended already). The MyLaps recommendation was for the club to switch a new X2 system a much lower price rather than purchase replacement Tranx3 decoder. Moscore QM (QMA's Official Scoring Software) does not include support for the X2 protocol.

Other clubs report that they have been seeking alternative systems to satisfy their timing and scoring needs. Their transponders and transponder batteries are failing and will soon need replacing. The current rules specify that only Tranx160/260 transponders are legal at QMA events. Our understanding is that an RCP will be required to change this.

We are currently inquiring with the QMA National organization in order to discover the best way to proceed with this technological change which affects our software.

If you have any questions regarding this issue, feel free to respond to this facebook post or contact us directly.
