    Can I mount my DBOX here

    I have just got my Ken Block (posting here for more reads, same chassis), and I want to fit the DBOX drift assist, do you think I can fit it on the opposite side to the servo?

    Any issues with placing it here? I saw the video on youtube, but the HPI model needs to be mounted on its side, rather than flat, soIm not sure if there is enough clearance. Having said that the rear body mount brace is flexible so it may fit there. Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

    I would think it'll fit there... do you have the DBOX already? If not, I would highly suggest getting a helicopter head-lock gyro off EBay for much cheaper! You're talking about a $50 difference for the same thing!

    if you are planning on using a gyro to help steer during drift the best posistion for the gyro is the middle of the car or as close as possible...

    I have already bought it!!!! I will buy one of the other ones though and sell the HPI one locally in Dubai, they are not available locally, so will be able to make a margin on it, thanks for the prompt reply.

    think you have that the other way around...
    Futaba Gyros are $125 to $250 depending on model
