Well, if we have 1 battery - you want to put it right at the center to
optimize the centre of mass.  But there is big hole in the centre.  We
have to somehow cope/work with it.  If we have 2 batteries, we should keep
everything symmetrical again to optimize the mass distribution of the
robot.  The robot will be a lot easier to drive ( and will move a lot
better) if the weight is distributed the right way.
