Just wait. You will be pleasantly surprised with their intake/filter and fuel tank designs.

fuel tank is in the center of the car so the front windshield gets cutout.

I think its more than 6. But I'm going to Thailand for one of them!

I believe most of the fueltank is in the regular place. Just the cap in the middle a la Team Magic. Looks like theres no pressure line on the cap also. Sucks if they did that cause i know someone else who did that too a long time ago, just never got his car made.

so the pressure line goes directly to the tank and not on the cap?

Looks like they are trying to do everything different.

sounds like that JQ buggy, sure wish someone would put that buggy into production.....

The wing may be big, but it sits lower and more forward than others, should be quite effective and put downforce down over the rear wheels, not behind them

You're correct; a long time ago....In the '80's none of the fueltanks had the presure line in the caps.

Also, seeing as how the car was designed on a 3d modeling program, they have the luxury on working from the inside out to make sure that the body clears all of the internals, and a "buck" for the bodyshell can be corrected and produced in less than 48 hours.

Think about it, this is just a toy car, not a Boeing 787 with a zillion parts requiring 100 different designers on CAD stations spread out over miles of hangar space. Given the craftsmanship and intelligent design that went into all of their previous cars, I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt on the air filter/gas tank.

Save your energy JQ, most people won't see it, and once the whole car is unveiled, they would be like "oh my god you see that? There's the airfilter and the fueltank!"

It happens to me every time a new car is released, it's just useless trying to fight them
