Out the sides, there's no problem with turns as you usually want to use up a good hundred yards to make a turn to avoid "knitting a sweater" with the lines. And unless you do a real tight turn there's little danger of getting the cable in the motor (it can be done but takes a bit of work to do it) Also out the sides gives your baits a bit more separation. On my rebel I lined the riggers up with the back seat so that you can sit and crank'em up comfortably.
