Tub chassis is a different issue since they were designed for rounded edge packs. Not sure what the solution is for those.

I believe with the black gears you should be able to gear it low enough to use brushless, but I won't be able to verify that for a couple weeks.
Unfortunately it's a tub. I see your point about the difficulty; there would be quite a bit of ABS that I'd need to dremel out to fit a square pack.
