This car has had a lot of development go into it; they've been working on it for a couple of years in the UK. The on-track performance of the later versions has been impressive to watch, winning the BRCA Mod TC championship in its first year of competition.

It's different from the standard TC design, but in a way that works, rather than just being different for the sake of it like some other cars (including older Schumachers).

And no confusion about the "mid motor" designation on this car

Interesting take on the mid-motor. Unequal length belts but the motor is more "mid" and moved up forward more than the other mid conversions.

Whats interesting is the unequal top deck design similar to the awesomatix.... also, the pivot ball top and bottom of the front hub also seen on the awesomatix.

Any idea the thought behind the small bearings in the middle of the + piece in the diff?

I like that they moved back to the carbon A arm.
