True. But batteries wieghs way more than a belt or shaft.

Having a shaft and the diffs above the batts, will raise CG. But since the batts are way more heavy than a shaft and the diffs, it might still be an advantage.

One thing to wonder about: Why have nobody made a shaft car with the batts in the middle and the shaft besides the battes? Something inspired by the JRX-S...

It may due to the front and rear diff also need to be raised, and the bulk head as well.

In my opinion there are more options.
Why don't you make the mainshaft out of dogbone/CVD style shafts, so you can make the mainshaft in an angle.
This way you can build the mainshaft "around" the batteries.
And like Cole said, why not mount the shaft(s) on one side of the car.
I think the batteries should be in the center as close as possible, 'cause it's about the heaviest component in the whole car.
The disadvantage will be that the drivetrain won't be so smooth anymore. But I think that's better than putting al that weight (the batteries) on one side of the car.

Another idea is to split the battery into 3 each like some belt car is using.

Just another thing... how do you want to mount the motor?!
I think the only opinion is to mount it parralel with the mainshaft.
So that means you have to mount it on one side,
and to comprimise you should mount the batteries on the ohter side.
I don't see a way to place the motor in the center of the car.
If you do, the motor has to be at right angles to the mainshaft, and I don't see that happen.
Another solution is to mount the mainshaft above the motor, but I think that's just a bit to radical.

Motor will be mounted the same as Pro4, servo+ESC+receiver will be another side of the motor.

I think the Durango layout cold work well for a sedan. Finding space for electronics could be a pain.
