Would you mind terribly posting the minimum requirements to run either version of the Core system. Pentium2, gazillion megabites, Partridge in a pear tree, etc,etc.

Thank You very very much

PIII, 1GHz, 512M RAM. Not much by today's standards...

Thank you for the response on system requirements. I now have that covered so I guess the next question I have is about transponders. Where can they be purchased? Are they available in smaller sizes? I received an even dozen with the system but would like to have more, especially the one that seem to sandwich under the front bumper of an F-1 car (somewhere in MZR forums).

Any additional information and guidance will be sincerely appreciated.

Hi Mike,

We will have the F1 style transponders available for purchase when the new system is released. The new core system will be backwards compatible with existing transponders.

it's not a total loss if they don't.... just means continued sales of the existing transponder types vs. a switch to whatever the new brand will be. the plus side will be that everyone with a pre-kyosho unit can still take thier cars with tags to any track with either system.

i'm just as curtious to see if there are any changes to the new transponders as the dnano tags look much different. not only that, i'm affraid there will eb a heft price increase for that pretty looking tag:( we all know these tags are dirt cheap in stock form.

The new transponders are very small and custom made for the car. Kyoho really doesn't add any markup to the car for this feature. It's a value added feature that keeps their cars unique and a step above anyone else's. Essentially, you are getting lap counting ability at their cost for each car.

The new core systems will read both old and new transponders fine. But, the old core systems won't be able to read the new transponders because of hardware limitations (nothing artificially imposed by us, just a hw limitation of the older design).

i would like to update this frequently, please submit any quoted questions/replies to me

So, the new small F-1 transponders will or won't work with the older system
