Questions?? What sedan has batteries on left side?

I know the Tc3 and Tc4 have a chassis where the batteries go on the left hand side. Does anyone else know of sedans out there that are set up with batts on the left? Thanks

I don't think there are any others. I think the only other layout is the 3x3 setup that Xray used to use and the up the middle design of the new losi. The old XXX-S was right side, the RDX is right side, TC5 right side, and all the new Xrays are right side.

One I can think of now is the T5 ( I think that's the name ) by Kyosho. It's the shaft drive version. The T5 Stallion is the belt version of the same chassis, but I think it has cells on the right, if I remember correctly.

Edit: I just checked the Kyosho site and the Stallion does, indeed, have the batteries on the right.

It looks like all the shaft cars were left side and belts only run on the right.

Because the motor is on the left. Putting the motor on the right would have the car run backwards.

It doesn't make any difference which side the motor is on as long as it's still facing the same direction.

The drive shaft still spins the same direction no matter where the motor is positioned around the spur as long as the motor is still pointing to the rear of the car. Visualize it...

My reply was in answer to the post wondering why belt cars had the battery on the right, not about shaft cars.

The backwards quote was made about the belt drive, not the shaft drive cars. Belt would only be on the left or as said it would run in reverse. Not all belt drive cars have the battery on the right either, Losi is in the middle.

I just got that

So then why do they put the belt cars batts on the right?

There must be a reason
