    You want it up tward the front of the car. A couple of dude's on here have already done that. I tried it and didn't like it at all, thats just me though. Takes all the fun out of driving that thing realy.

    Just so you know it will take a little time to get used to the countersteer of the gyro. That was my problem is i wanted 100% control of the car. Good luck.

    It doesn't really matter where you place it as long as you tune it for the mounting location it will work fine. It works by detecting motion & it has no idea where it is relation to wheels, front or back...

    I jumped the gun and purchased a headlocking gyro back in febuary .. was told its better for drag racing as opposed to making it look like I know how to drift.. but I could never figure it out as the front wheels were so jittery
