Just put a smaller engine in it? A 300XL will give you enough room to run two ER-LL's or whatever suits your fancy.

The Cicada is a medium that is trying to be a light. It is the Mega-Jenner and I like it.

The Hunchback and Centurion are both mediums that are trying to be heavies.

What we really need is a medium that is just a medium.

Isn't that really the point of mediums? They are going to gravitate to either light or heavy as they are in between the 2.

I don't know about the OP but my Hunchback does 90KPH.

It's a stretch to make the Hunchback go 90km/hr. Stock, they go the same speed as a Catapult.

The mediums we currently have are trying to be lights or heavies, so I guess you could say that is currently the point of them... Ideally total team tonnage would actually matter, I guess.

This is nonsense. Customize your cicada how you want it, but realize at 40 tons its barely out of the light bracket and is basically a scout or fast harasser.

No. It's a mega Locust. :)

But I agree none of the current mediums is a medium. We've got only one mech that plays like a medium (the Dragon) and people dislike it, and besides JJs, there's nothing true mediums would offer.
