i have the mbx6 truggy and buggy. the hole for the wires out of the box is a pain to thread thru them

might try as well. dont see any diff since the car is covered by the buggy body shell any way.

funny i never thought of it

I always mount mine as far forward as I can in the event I end up in a close race. If mine is mounted up front and yours is towards the middle and we crossed the line together I'd get the win. I've had it happen a few times (very close finishes).

my mate suffered from lost laps a few months ago the loop was placed above the track and not buried underneath. he wasnt getting a sting enough signal and had to have the PT placed outside to get a better reading.

personally i wouldn't risk it. why dont you just colour the pt in black if you want to keep the stealth look

The only negative I could really see is the fact that my pitman and I use the amb light as an indicator to tell if the truck is on or off
I thought about doing this but the light was the only drawback, maybe I will go to radioshack and get a tiny led to mount on the box instead
As for the color buy on of the clones from rclaps.com-it comes in a black case

I run a losi which has a seoerate rx and batt box, also I run a spektrum micro(about the size of your thumbnail and I shorten my servo wires to the appropriate length and I run hitec 79xx servos with no regulator. I have to add a good bit of foam to my rx box to make a snug ft
