We do not sell karting transponders

Below you will find information about the models available starting with the latest and then going through the to the oldest version. All are still valid to be used at all AKA tracks.

Mylaps X2 kart transponder

Mylaps X2 transponder

Available new directly from Mylaps Australia.

The X2 can be purchased with a 1,2,or 5 year subscription. Ensure you buy the transponder with subscription. DO NOT make the mistake of just buying a subscription renewal.

The X2 can be purchased as just the RECHARGABLE model or pay extra to get the DIRECT POWER (DP) model. I personally recommend to stick with the RECHARGABLE model as it is simpler and easier to use. The DP model requires more wires and stuff on your kart to be connected to a power source provided by your kart.

The X2 has a lifetime warranty and is powered by an internal Li-ion battery and can be charged via virtually any USB port or power pack such as used to charge your phone using the USB cable provided in the kit.

You can allow the subscription to lapse if you discontinue racing and at a later time reactivate by resubscribing online. If choose to not renew or allow the subsription to lapse you are not required to return the hardware, you keep it.

When you receive the X2 it will be NOT activated and cannot be used yet.
IMPORTANT to activate...

  1. Create or log into a free account at www.mylaps.com
  2. Register the transponder
  3. From within your account download and install the free Mylaps Connect software
  4. Run the connect software and connect the X2 transponder to the computer via USB cable and Racekey.
  5. The Connect software will do a 3 step check to complete activation of the transponder
  6. Within a minute the centre light on the Rackey will change from red to green which indicates the X2 transponder is activated and ready to use. All that is left to do is charge it which will take up to 4 hours to complete.

Tips for transponder care

All rechargeable racing transponder of this type should be fully charged and allowed to run down at least once per month. This will extend the life of the battery. Do not over-charge. Once the charging light has changed from flashing red to solid green it should be removed from charging to avoid over-charging.
