i never knew it could be such a pain to mount a fail safe on an hpi firestorm in a good location to protect it at best as possible from dirt water and vibration where it would still be visible. But after hours of tinkering and thought i finally was able to condure up a way to mount it and cram the huge hunk of wires back inside the tiny receiver box.

What i did:
  1. Notch out a slot on ether side of the receiver box top
  2. Attached the F.s on top of the box's top with double sided foam tape
  3. Then i used hot glue to seal up the notch that i cut
  4. Used black auto touch up paint to paint over the clear glue
  5. notched out the sides of the receiver box itself so the wires would clear in the corners when it was re assembled
  6. shoved everything back inside the box as best as i could
  7. done!
