Genius! You obviously have a lot more experience in this than me, while it did occur to me that the last legs would be powered through a long train of gears, it never did that placing the motors in the center would mitigate this.

The other nice thing is moves the center of gravity back. It seems like these small bots are front heavy, but this is a step in the right direction. On thing to keep in mind is it might be nice to run the batteries within the chassis keeping them low.
