the Yokomo ball cups are good but I did have one issue with them. If I put shims under the ball stud, a gravity USGT wheel would rub the ball cup. Especially if you run a 4 mm hex. On my TC, it's runs a little as well. Haven't seen where other people have this issue so not sure if they are sanding down the edge of the inside of the wheel or doing something else.

Sure. Measure the ones you have and purchase longer if you are having issues.

Not economically. New chassis plate, new top plate, new motor mount, new diff, new spool, new drive pulleys, new bearing caps, new shock towers.

Same shocks and same plastic a arms.

Exactly, the good news is that a lot of the spares can be used from the previous chassis.

With the front spool centered there may not be an option for a front diff. I not sure if those shocks are shorter then the current 7.1 (like the T4 18). Im not a fan of asymmetric top plates. With the motor moved more inboard I wonder if you will have to dremel the rotor shaft so you dont drill through the battery. I wonder if this car has ONE Tc5 part on it the center pulley

Shocks are the same as TC7.1, new centre pulley! You certainly don't have to cut the rotor shaft. Sure I believe it's close to the battery, but shouldn't be an issue unless some motor brands have crazy long shafts.

just saying....no one with right mind will do this unless ae comes up with a conversion kit for 7.1
also i have no idea what this layout ae is hoping to achieve. i know bd8 has this layout though...

I think the theory goes that the belts are under quite a bit of tension, and therefor with them being away from the centre line, when under tension, they will effect the chassis flex. Clearly the front one will have the bigger effect. Yokomo weren't concerned about the rear, and as such they didn't do anything with that and it's still the old diff. AE decided it was worth doing something and hence moved the rear belt as far over as they could.
