    Here's my sidewinder mount. I trimmed down a 9V battery door from a cheap alarm clock, then siliconed the sidewinder to it. It sticks out about 1/4", but is still well protected by my roll cage. ...

    I run RPM knuckles on mine. I did manage to pop both right fronts out while bashing at the skate park the other day, but it was a quick 5 minute fix to put them back in. And since I was jumping...
