I thought about doing the drive train this way a long time ago on my TC3. I could never find off the shelf bevel gears that would make it work correctly.

Opps you are correct. $600 for a TC, that'll make xray look cheap

It wonder,... looking at the front suspention drawings it may be a rebound type suspension that is used in pan cars???
I do not know about the carbon fiber lower control arms either, snap snap.
Steering looks like the TC3 system

WOW! That is really interesting! It functions sort of like a leaf-spring as a dampening effect. I know I am using leaf-spring wrong here, but I forgot what similarly used dampening system works like leaf-springs on current trucks.

This car is definitely looking pretty interesting. As far as the shaft drive solution, I was thinking more on the lines of some sort of slipper effect. But this is really damn interesting. Now I can't wait to see this car in action.

I would say the big yellow round thing is what they call a rotary dash pot, it will be doing the damping and the what looks like a coiled leaf spring will do the springing.

I dunno, this thing reminds me too much of how a leaf-spring type suspension would work. One thing I am not too crazy about these types of setup is how fast the dampening effect wears out. Furthermore, what if you get that one hard hit against a wall while racing.

I'm almost tempted to ask for a crash-test video.
