Transponder position:

1) on the servo
2) on the chassis

Thoughts?

Place the elec's far more inboard? Then place the receiver against the Servo, place the RC against the receiver (more inboard). Then there is a gap between the servo, receiver and Tekin, towards the end of the bottomplate. That's a nice spot for the PT if you ask me.

I agree with that from a looks standpoint. Unfortunately I am anticipating having to move all my electronics out to the far edge to get proper balance. We will see. Just finished building it last night and still need to set it up.

I have my electronics quite outboard on my T3 12 also, the car balances out much better that way.

I see you installed the new servo mount but did not remove the nub sticking out on the chassis. I thought that was the bonus of that mount so you could dermel that off so it won't catch the carpet on sweepers?

I just havent removed it yet. Trying to prioritize the things I need to get done to race it this weekend and that might not make the cut.

If you end up moving your electronics toward the center, you can make the inside edge of your receiver line up with the inside edge of the servo. That can give you a nice flat spot to mount your transponder out of sight. It should be able to clear the belt.

Receiver and transponder are so light, I don't really worry about using them for ballast. I run an ESC with a little meat on it (v3), and between it and the motor, there's plenty of weight on the outside edge. You can always move your electronics toward the inside to keep them safer and then put some weight next to them, too.

Also, try coiling your receiver wire around a screwdriver and then put shrink over it. You can stick it to the top of your receiver and be done with antenna tubes forever. It works fine. Here's an example from my 1/12

For whatever reason I've always try to put my heavier weight toward the center and the lighter weight items toward the outside. For some reason this makes sense to me.

Good idea on the antenna wire, but keep in mind that what you have built there is an air-core inductor, a few tents of a micro-henry by the look of it, and even though its not doing anything bad for you in the way you have it, it IS possible to bundle the thing up in such a way that at a certain signal strength (a certain distance from the transmitter, may be two inches or two miles, but most likely never) and a certain frequency, it will blind out your signal and you will have a badly working R/C airplane instead of a car. I'm a little bit of a stickler for this stuff, and its almost certainly no problem, but for the asthetics its not a risk I would take. I just string mine up through my front suspension and body post holes.

Hey, they made me learn this shit in school, I might as well use it for this as I certainly don't use it for my job.
