I agree, the wiring is very neat and tidy. However, be sure to put some heat shrink over the battery connectors! If they dead short to the upperdeck, you'll have one really nice LiPo fire there.

Good luck racing. Where's your local track?

IMO It all depends on what servo you have it on, since a servo is tilted to right if you have a heavy metal full size servo like mine it tweak better with left side small ESC such as the Tekin RS.

here is a mine with left side ESC.

thats pretty much the same way i would mount one up if i were to go that rout.
when i had my 1st type-r i mounted the lrp quantam comp esn as shown ox bow.amb under front diff and rx on right side...car was dialed.

on my second car i ran the lrp sphere tc comp esc the same way.i didnt worry about balance...car still felt dialed...
