    Looking through the contents supplied with the Toolchanger, I noticed that one of the extruders was supplied with a motor with an O shaft. All the others have a D shaft. Could this have a mechanical impact on the performance of the extruder?

    The motor is likely to stall before the grub slips. It should not cause any issues.

    I also received one Motor with O and one with D shaft. Also the extruder motors seem to much bigger than the ones I got with Titan ~2 years ago and was planning to use for two of the toolheads. Is there a way to order them separately to make sure that all toolheads will exactly behave the same?

    I got 3 D shafts and 1 O shaft with mine.
