I believe that the Q100 series have faceplates that can be swapped. For example, you could get a Q100H and a Q100C then swap the clutch and ring gear (not sure if the ring gear can come off or not) between the faces and use the freehub on the Q100H. I haven't done this myself, so I honestly don't know for sure that it would work, but from what I've seen of the Q motors is that most if not all parts are interchangeable.
EDIT: I basically agree with motomech in that there probably isn't a big enough difference between the Q100H and the Q100C to justify the swap. But I think it would be technically possible to do so.
I don't think that is possible. Dave posted this pic that clearly shows that the stator of the "C' is about 30 % thinner the make room for the long cassette spline;
A take-a-way from that thread was that all the Q100 housings are the same and will take any motor core as long as the motor core is swapped w/ it's type of side-plate(C or non-C).
The question I had was; "Will the 260 gears fit the "C" motors?". Pretty sure they will swap physically and it would depend on whether or not the motor cores sun gear will match the 260's planet gears.
I was really interested in a 260C at the time, but since it would require buying two motors, I dropped the idea.
