Default yet another Switch question

For those that DO use a switch.

do you prefer to have the off facing the front or to have the on facing the front?
What about switches that go side to side?

this is the way I would do it and I have used both types of switches however someone said that I should run the on button facing the front of the car in case if you have a sudden stop the switch doesn't accidentally turn off.

I run mine with ON to the front. As mentioned, it you have a hard hit to the front coming off a jump or whatever, it could throw the switch.

+1 if your going to run a switch I would put the on switch facing forward to prevent the car shutting itself off on a hard hit.

i run the losi and the switch goes side to side. i always put it off when pushed in so it is easier for my pitman to shut it off.
