99% of offroad 2wd vehicles have the speedcontrol on the left side of the chassis, the reciever on the right and the servo in the middle, not much you can really move stuff around unlike a touring car.

Should I put them forward in the chassis or toward the rear? Thanks.

That depends on your preference, though for most of us, the change in weight distribution is negligible. My rec. and esc are pretty well centered in their respective sides.

also keep in mind if your going to be direct soldering your packs to your speedo that you may want to make sure that no electronics are in the area that might get nicked by that 700 degree tip.... other than that I put them wherever they fit good and I can route my wires cleanly.

Here ya go. If you club race with a BK2/MF2, then you need your RX up a little farter(like mine) if you plan to run the transponder hack there... others run the RX back, or on its side, or the ESC up farther, etc. All a preferance..
