I'm not so much bothered by the looks as I am worried about the wing's durability: very high vertical fences with minimal bracing. Nonetheless, I love this car!

The body shell has a nice shape, though I don't think they picked the best possible scheme to show it off. I think it'll look better in pitch-black

The air filter is a flattened oval shape affair, similar to the RC8, and will be located in the usual place, aft of the fuel tank.

Should look really cool with an RB LCG cooling head. Ultra slammed.
It looks a bit shorter than the average buggy too. It has a very electric buggy look to it.

The buggy looks level with the rear shock collars all the way up and a motor in it....

I dont know about you all but I think this is an awsome design. I cant wait to see how they will fit the air filter under the body. If you look at the side view the throat of the carb is almost touching the body.

Looks to me like you have to cut a hole for the airfilter...

You can see the air filter through the window on the CAD renderings in the Jan 8 update on the Durango blog.

i honestly don't think they designed that body with the air filter in mind lol
really don't see where it would fit.
I also don't see how the shocks would fit behind she shock tower with that huge and low wing.
