Looks like the car will be Shaft Driven at 1st
... but very different from the Barracuda
the batteries "SHOULD" be on the Right hand side like the Cuda..... . but the suspension geo' is very different ...
and it will have open bulkheads for easy access
....... But look for a conversion on the car after it comes out
..??? Belt conversion...so you can run the same car but choose your type of drive system
... look to be interesting.... if they can pull it off
... and be able to finish the prototype before the middle of May before the Shizoka Hobby Show
