Interesting. Don't like the exposed cells though.

dont know how the chassis would hold up. Looks like it has weak spots.

I'd be interested to see how the shock towers hold up. Seems like a bridged design would be a logical (necessary?) upgrade.

the holes for the cells are too lay them lower in the chassis as well as allow some air to flow under them to keep them cooler. And I'm pretty certain there isnt going to be any problem with beraking the beefy aluminum center chassis.
