BF Materials MP10/MP9 connector & transponder mount

Coming from BF Materials is a clever connector and transponder mount for the Kyosho Inferno MP10 and MP9 series of vehicles. Designed for the use with universal-style receiver connectors and MyLaps RC4 transponders, the integrated mount allows for secure car operation as the connector holder prevents the receiver battery plug from becoming unplugged during use while the transponder is securely fastened in the same area. The locked design keeps all parts in place, however the plug and transponder can be removed easily when needed. Made of tough nylon plastics the mount attaches to the original transponder mounting plate using four M3 screws, ensuring a nice and tidy setup.
