If you look closely at the t-bar, where it attaches to the pod, it uses pivot balls so the car relies in the forward shock and not the flex of the t-bar.
This design was used on the Wood Racing brand of after-market chassis.
I remember they came out in the mid 90's.
I still have their Lil Dog 12th scale oval conversion.
Hope this helps!!!
