I remember a guy from the Chicago area actually built a car around similar ideas as this car. He used 4 spring steel arms--similar material to the pan car t bars silva sells- and 1/12 dampner tubes. I don't remeber what camber and caster system he used, but i think it was like this car, as he was a Trinity driver. I thought he used Schumacher hubs, since the old hubs were vertical pivot ball. HPI drive train too. I know he ran it at Cleveland, but I can't remember how he did. It makes sense that something like this could work, though I would bet it is even better on foam.
