It is mentioned several times in this thread that certain motors do not fit when using saddles. All it takes is to read.

Not shooting you or anyone. Still ridiculous that standard parts don't fit a standard configuration.

So, you have to use a short stator motor if you want to run saddle packs..Otherwise you have to massage the post a bit if you decide not to...OMG... the kit wheels are only 2.2

Not heard this about the motors. When I built one in saddle config I fitted an Orion VST2 without any issues. Never crossed my mind so can't have been an issue.

How about switching the arms from left to right vice versa. Compensate length adjustments through hub and inner hinge.

Great body, plenty of room underneath, better durability and easier to paint a must have!
