Due to insufficient numbers, the group purchase is canceled for this year. Sorry folks, not enough to earn a discount. Safe racing this season!


Hello,

Last year I coordinated a group buy for MyLaps/AMB transponders. It went pretty well, and I was thinking of coordinating another.
But first, I would like to gauge interest, to see if we would have the numbers to obtain a similar discount and make it worth everyone's time and money.

Last year, we received a 20% discount from the retail cost of the wired/wireless transponders. Given similar interest, around 25 devices ordered, I suspect we would receive a comparable discount.

If you are interested, check the poll at the top of this message. When I have an idea about numbers, I will follow up with further information.

I would like to get this taken care of before the Jefferson 500/Summit School (May 14-15), so that new drivers attending the school can take part.
I can extend this past May to accommodate racing budgets, but that means that anyone wanting to use them at the Jefferson 500 will not be able to, so that's what "Yes - but May is too soon" is for.

Feel free to refer others who may be interested to this thread, as I will communicate further information via the forum should we proceed.

Thanks!

Ian,
I posted to the Triumph racers and also another spot on this forum about another group buy not realizing you had already done so. I have two folks already who are on board. I will send you their contact information along with any others that reply.
Still getting used to the forum as a communication tool.
Best regards

Russ,

Thanks for stopping by and helping out! I replied to your email, and will be getting in touch with everyone soon. A little busy knocking 40 years of cobwebs out of what we hope will soon become our new shop.

Stick with the forum - I think you'll find it's quite nice once you get the hang of it. And please feel free to invite your Triumph racer friends not already here, to come and join in. Any and all vintage racers are welcome! I can lend a hand if anything gives you trouble.

Ok Russ - finally have the time to sit down and dedicate to getting this group buy rolling. I'll sent out an e-mail tonight to everyone that you've sent to me, so if anyone's been bugging you, pass along my apologies for tardiness. :|

Thanks again for reaching out to your fellow racers and friends, I appreciate the assistance!

I have something of a final list of interest in the group buy, and numbers to quote on. When I have a reply from MyLaps on this, I will follow up here, and with those included in the mailing list on price and availability.

Thanks for your patience everyone!

Price Update:

15% discount for orders of 10-24 transponders.

20% discount for order of 25+

Current retail is $489.60 for both hardware/rechargeable so costs will be:

15% = $416.16
20% = $391.68

We're currently at 12 devices, so looking at a 15% discount.
This information will be sent to all interested parties in e-mail.
Should anyone else be interested that doesn't already know, please get in touch with me on the forum here, or by e-mailing me using the button below this post.

To those watching this thread, we're still 5 devices short of the minimum 10 needed to get a 10% discount.

If we're not able to hit 10, then the group purchase will be canceled as we would be paying full boat. Please contact me if you've previously expressed interest and not yet confirmed.

Thanks!
