If you have a close look at the Cyclone, the cells aren't really any closer to the centre because even with the belt to one side - the spur gear is now in the way of getting the cells closer. Either the cells would have to come forward to clear the spur, or the layshaft moved back.

I think your first point is right - the MSX is well balanced the way it is.

BTW it is possible to move the motor to the middle AND get the cells closer to the centre-line - it requires the support bulkhead closest to the cells to be moved in at the lower part so the cells can squeeze in there - the Top Racing Scythe has used that idea.
They have to do like the RDX Drive train the chassis is So Small the battery's are close to the center! But the MSX is good balanced like he is now so!

Good point on the steering of the cyclone, forgot about that

Also note that the Cyclone battery is just a tad more in towards the center, and alittle more forward in placement. I checked this holding both of my chassis together seeing the difference in layout, etc.

I can tell you now, the ta05 spool comes with steel outdrives, I have one in my box, so i do know. However the delrin cups are a direct fit onto the TA05 spool (as are the steel onto the 415)... which is what probably happened with your friend in the belgium eurocup, he had just swapped the cups over.

That could be pssible but i saw a TA-05 SPool with delrin cubs in a shopt from tamiya! But hell what does it matters( allot i think becaus the delrin outdrives are much better) Steel outdrive aren't that direc ton the axle!
