Default Creative Transponder mounting

Cmon guys. Any creative ways to mount your transponders?

In your signature I read you run Mugen, those cars have fine working transpondermounts.

if you are running an mtx4, (when i ran the car) I took the transponder and mounted it under the front bumper at the chassis level. The trick part was the way the wires were hidden. I took the wires and ran them next the the right bulkhead and shoe goo'd them into place. Then the transponder slid into the front bumper in front of the sway bars. If you looked at the car, you never saw the transponder.

do you have any trouble with the transponder ejecting from the car when the bumper hits something? how does it stay there (servo tape, bolts, etc...)? did you have to cut a relief in the foam bumper so it's countersunk?

I cut a square into the bumper. Notice how you can only see half of it? Its secured somewhat by the lower bumper brace. I haven't hit too much yet, and so far its been fine. If I hit something hard enough to eject it, I've probably broke my car, also which has not happened yet

Here is a better pic:
