My opinion? I don't like the placement of the receiver on the 710. Just like I do not like the placement of the receiver on the MTX-3 and V1RR EVO. My 2 cents.
You've got a point there D

Strange that the Futaba receiver is different from the PCM and HRS receiver layout. The PCM (R113iP) and HRS (R203HF) receiver from the 3PK looked the same like the Sanwa receiver in terms of the crystal and plugs placement.

I'll try...

The additional rear lower arm link that is nearer to the front of the car is like another arm located slightly higher (or lower or at a neutral position) relative to the other main rear lower arm located more towards the rear side of the car.

When the suspension compresses, this other additional rear lower arm link (located higher than the other main rear lower arm) will push the rear hub out in such a way to create less toe in. This results in more steering. The opposite happens when this other additional rear lower arm link is installed lower than the other main rear lower arm when acceleration and braking becomes more stable.

I think you misunderstood.

Don't cut the protector, cut a slot in the lip to which you stick the receiver. Then mount it with the wires on one side of the lip and the crystal in the slot you made.

Hmm... Pretty good idea!

The only thing that i hope is that crystal does not touch the throtle servo..
Thanks

Thaasman,
You should try putting some heatshrink wrap or a bicycle intertube to hold the receiver in place on the receiver mount. That will also insolated from fuel and also you wont worried about the crystal touching your throttle servo.

You could use some 2-sided tape in 2 or 3 layers between the receiver and the lip. To space it away from the servo.

..be patient , tomorow I will start building. And I have no choice, must use the R113iP.
Anyway, what throttle servo you are using ?
I use S9550 in all of my car, should be no problem if I try to mount the rcv in Rene style.

Maybe an old snake found its charm?
