    Generally people put it in the middle for balance, and because if you have 2 large batteries, you need the room over the right battery tray, but if you use one battery or if you want to lower your COG by like half an inch, put it over the right side. Then you can tape over the second hole. The motor plate acts like a heat sink for the motor, so I would use the dual to have more cooling area

    Just my 2 cents.

    We put it over to the side on my buddies... he is just a basher and we figured a lower COG would be better than evenly balanced.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    I put mine on the top plate and put masking tape over the hole no problems at all.

    Ya, and the torque of the motor actually offsets the balance, hence Traxxas has one motor centered and one off to the side on the stock setup.

    And why the motors face each other on the Erevo.
