Default spektrum telemetry rpm question?

hi does anyone know if you can fit the spektrum telemetry rpm sensor to any side of the engine to read off the fly wheel as one side I cannot fit due to the disc brake in the way?
cheers!

I personaly dont know but if the flywheel has a pickup point i would imagine that you could just flip the sensor upside down on the other side of the mtor and it will work exactly the same, you would have to make sure polarity to the sensor doesnt effect readings but ide be pretty confident it would work exactly the same.

You could also email Spectrum and ask them im pretty sure they would tell you the same thing, the only drawback would be heat from the exhaust.

Default Yea you can do that

Doesn't matter which way its orientated. I've used them both ways. And on one car the sensor is glued to the car instead of mounting it to the bracket they supply. Be careful with the tiny screws however those threads strip easy.
