The center bar also prevents the inner shaft tip from piercing the battery In a hard crash situation.
It should be ok to remove some plastic material as long as you leave enough to protect the battery in a crash.
The O-ring fix does have the benefit of moving the battery farther away from the inner shaft tip increasing battery protection in a crash.
