Can anyone confirm that the Mylaps X2 transponder is the right one for SLS ?

That is one of the ones you can use, yes.

Its the newest one. Subscription based I think.

make sure your subscription is up to date and that you've updated the transponder with the "key". A number of competitors had problems at Knockhill because the MyLaps subscription hadn't been updated on the actual unit, so no times were recorded in qualifying.

I think Ian Sharp was going to send some info to Adam to post here.

If any Competitor has an “MyLaps” X2 subscription transponder can you please make sure your subscription is up to date and where necessary have the subscription renewed well before your first event following it’s due renewal date.

As well as paying your subscription fee you need to attach your Racekey, the small silver bit with the three lights on the front, to an internet connected computer. Once connected it will probably run a firmware update and then register your new subscription renewal on the Racekey which when connected back through to the Transponder allows it to operate. If you don’t connect and update your Racekey your subscription renewal is not complete and the Transponder will not operate.

If you have bought a “MyLaps” subscription transponder, including any previous Flex models, from another Competitor you need to make sure that the previous Owners have relinquished their subscription. If they have not done this and you go to renew the Transponder subscription it will still be registered under the previous Owners name and you will not be allowed access to carry out renewals. Easy if it was someone you know but as people are finding significantly more difficult when bought through the Internet.

Whether you have a rechargeable of direct powered transponder the Racekey also needs to be fitted to the car in an accessible location. If there are any issues with your Transponder on track at an event we need the Racekey to read data as to the status of your transponder, more than happy to do our best to help you out but if the Racekey is still at Home or lying in the Workshop there is little we can do.

There is an FAQ page on “MyLaps” website which is also useful :

If anyone has any issues please get in touch with SMART Timing (www.smart-timing.co.uk)

Thanks For all the info have ordered one now but had already ordered it when I got Adam's email paid a bit more than Ian Smart could get it for but didn't realise that when a I ordered it so if your thinking of buying one don't make the mistake I made, order it from Ian it will be cheaper.
