ok maybe it's just me but what are we lookin for? can't really tell if thats a receiver or a failsafe unit strapped on the side. or are you talking about the gearing selection?

ahh ok I know Hara di it to his r40 but i'm not quite convinced that it's a good idea considering how a lot of folks are concerned about the vulnerability of the steering servo to put the receiver there just seems to be asking for trouble if you ask me.
Honestly I really can't see the benefit of putting it there some will probably argue that it distributes the weight more evenly but I honestly don't think the majority of us will ever truly notice the difference it will make to the handeling of the car.

anyone else have an opinion on this?

I figure if the company includes a nice, tidy and easy to access receiver box, we should use it!

But thats just me!

I thought the reciever box was too small. I also didn't like the idea of running my wires between the battery and the fuel tank. Anyways, it glitched for me. Since I changed the reciever position I havent ever gotten a glitch.

Nrctc3: I thought the receiver box was pretty big. I fit my old Futaba FM receiver in there with plenty of room to spare for extra wire. Much bigger and much better shaped than the receiver box on my ReflexNT.

But, hey if you were glitching, you gotta do what you gotta do!

Look closely on the receiver battery plastic casing. Remove the fuel tank and you will see notches along the top edges of this case. They are for the routing of servo wires.

Works like a charm

Yeah, I noticed those pegs there..........after I had already routed the switch and throttle servo around the fuel tank! Still worked though, and I did route the steering servo wire using the pegs.

i moved the receiver box (not included the cover) to the other side of the car. I found out that my receiver was all soaked and wet from the fuel when it's on the original place! I'll post a pic soon.

How did it get wet and soaked with fuel in its original place? Your fuel person a little over eager with the bottle?!

It just seems to me that with the way the box closes, it would take quite a bit of overfilling or missing the tank to get fuel into the box.

How would your reciever get wet? Isn't that the whole purpose of the reciever box?

Yeah Hara must have been having some problems with the stock location because .5 oz (max) isn't going to mean anything on a 68 oz car.

perhaps the location hara used makes it easier to change crystals?
