Default ESC Help

I have a Cyclone S chassis and I need an ESC to complete the car. I would like a brushed + brushless ESC but the limit is in the dimensions. The ESC can be no bigger than 33 x 36-37 in its footprint or it won't fit.

I could put the receiver on top of the servo but I don't really want to. Also I have a budget of around $100-180AU.

Any recommendations on the ESC?

40 x 41.5 mm too big. I could just put the receiver on top of the servo.

Or I could stand the ESC on its end. A guy in my LHS did that to someones car today.

Well if your going to put the receiver on theservo , i would recomend either novak GTB wich is indestructible and smaller then the LRP Ai or you can get the LRP tc spec wich is a great esc but more expensive.
