Yeah, not terribly appropriate for Mech Wars for many reasons, not the least of which is that you won't be permitted to construct your own impact sensor as I understand it.

If I'm permitted to construct my own, I'll have to put a remote switch on it. Works fine in the pit, doesn't register anything short of a direct thermonuclear blast at ground zero in-game.

So yeah, you can see why the rules require you use the standard sensor.
