Default Metal racing pod

Does anyone know if the metal pod on the racing models is offset and needs offset gears ?
Thanks Scott

The racing pod is not offset... so standard gears will work fine..

wow, that looks pretty cool... the bolts on side with washers hold in the bearings i guess ?
The pod front engagement to chassis looks like its begging for a heim joint. :-)
