Looking at the above CAD image it looks as if it has provision for a motor on the right side! or is it just for even flex left to right?

Just for equal flex.

I am tryin to understand the concept of the center turnbuckle to adjust torsion, tweak, and flex. It seems like it would most effect the from/rear flex, but not much else. I see most just not running it. It seems like a way to over tune your car into running like poop. Just a 1/8 turn too little or too much will throw everything out of whack.

It would have been nice to see the Ghost RM inner camber links. it actually seems like they would be easier to manufacture than the complex bulkheads most cars have now. I have always liked VBC cars. Great quality at a good price. And usually innovative. Like the toe block weight system. Very cool.

Wouldn't that centre turnbuckle just bend the lower chassis up or down if you shortened or lengthened it? We want a flat chassis yes?
I'm guessing you would just adjust the turnbuckle so that it fits on ballends without warping chassis. Use as a chassis stiffening feature maybe?
