Default TRX4 and Traxxas BEC - where to mount?

Just got a new Blazer TRX4 and a Traxxas #2260 BEC for 3s and it doesn't seem to fit too well inside the recieved box. Instructions say mount on chassis. But where would be the best place?

In the 2262 Set is an larger receiver cover. maybe you can buy the cover alone.

Don't get me wrong, I love the TRX4 (I have five of them) but the Traxxas electronics not so much. So I cringe when someone says that they want to install a Traxxas BEC or Traxxas high torque servo. Unfortunately the Traxxas 2260 BEC does not gain you very much for $45. It is rated at only 3a @ 6v and is non-adjustable. A MUCH better option for a BEC is the Castle Creations 10A which is rated at 10a adjustable voltage for about $21 or the HeyOK No Brainer BEC w/adjustable voltage for $30 or the best option, IMO, is to install a HobbyWing QuickRun WP1080 ESC which features an internal BEC with 3a adjustable 6 or 7.4v output plus MUCH smoother motor control all for $41. All I'm saying is there are so many better options out there than the Traxxas electronics generally for less money.

^^^ What he said - if at all possible, return the Traxxas BEC to where you bought it - HW1080 ESC all the way - works great in tandem with stock motor and then later swap that motor out for the excellent Holmes Hobbies TrailMaster Sport 550 21t at around $21 for even more fun. If you need a cheap but better than stock servo pick up a DS3218 or DS3218 Pro on Amazon or fleaBay for $17-$21 and you're off to the races, my friend.

Those two have a good point, If it's not too late I would return the traxxas bec. If it is too late, personally I use hot glue to mount a bunch of stuff pretty much anywhere i please. It hold pretty good but you can still give it a good tug to get it to come off pretty cleanly. I use the lower heat $5 gun from wallymart, works like a champ and so far hasn't set my house on fire. I imagine for $45 it comes waterproof already right?
