Default Mounting Fasst RX and GTB

Any one with this combination, how did you mount the receiver on a touring car (T2 specifically). I can't see a way to do it without putting it on the servo, which I guess isn't that bad. Pics would be great.

Thanks

I had a FASST and GTB in my T2 007 for a while. With mounting the RX on it's side placed just right it barely fit. The only other option is yes, on top of the servo but that's putting weight up high in the chassis.

I don't have experience with the Fassst RX but I know that with my spektrum on a T2 that I had to turn the RX on its side to fit it between the ESC (GTB) and Servo, sorry I don't have any pics as I no longer have the T2...

Default Layout

Does anyone have some pictures or can explain how their layout is setup with a normal sized receiver (ex. Futaba HRS Synth) and a Novak GTB speed control.

Thanks

Moonfrostee, sorry no pics, but you should be able to get a GTB and the RX you're referring to side by side on the chassis, as long as the receiver is mounted on its side.
It's the Fasst RX that I don't think will fit because of the external antenna, it's just too wide even on its side. The only way I've seen it is on the servo. I was hoping someone would have a picture of a Fasst RX and GTB or Sphere layout.
