I would lean towards A. Each RX head covers about a 24 in radius for receving incoming signals. so if you go out 24 inches from the RX head in all directions does it cover the front pretty well? (this is why I think B isn't a great option as a lot of the receive radius is off the side of the car, the center might be weak). The RX and TX need to be separated minimum 7 inches I believe so as long as A has 7 inches of space RX to TX and the 24 inch receive covers everything that nees coverage you should be ok

Is the TX 20 inches above ground level? If not you're gonna get reflections off the road surface. I'd try location A for the RXs and test.

TX sits at 22"

And the Tx Installation manual says at least 8" between Tx and Rx.

I've done a rough temp install, making a thread on it tomorrow.
