Hello,

Is it ok to mount my receiver and speedo on the top deck? Or would that be a really bad idea?

My motor cables arn't long enough to put the speedo at the front.

Bad idea for racing. Bashing who really cares. CG man CG! Replace those motor wires.

Why would it be bad for racing? I thought that keeping weight in the center of the car was a good idea?

Ill look into replacing the wires. If i do, the speedo will hang off the side of the chassis slightly, does that matter?

just about all the ESCs hang of the side, and it works fine. Mine has never came off.

Low center gravity is it.

I got hacked on the side once, she hit me right spot and cost me $80 Rx, since she hit me, everything has been stood up.

Yeah, low center of gravity.

You could always get those SC10 side bumpers and put on you car. lol

Yeah, my receiver does not hang over but the ESC does slightly. I'm in the works and making a little carbon piece to go around in case of a impact. Cause even if I lay it side ways the fan hangs over.

I like the white ones so you can easily see power robbing carpet/foam balls of gunk that get stuck in the pullies. However the black ones look nicer longer since it does hide the grit and dirt.
