Very interesting - one downside I see is locking the front wheels with screw instead of self-locking nut. This seem like rush for differentiation instead of rational engineering.

The steering hub is one-piece 7075 T6 part. No space for the thin steel axle due to all inner space of the hub is using for damping. So the wheel axle is also alu alloy. M3 outer thread on alloy axle looks too fragile for me. Normal M3 screw needs less space and weights less compare to the possible M4 nut.
Try to draw this and you will see the reasons.

I like that. Looks nicer using a plain old screw.

On my CRC front axles, I have to run shims inside and outside the wheel to take up play. It's annoying. Every time I swap tires, I lose a shim that costs more than a bearing. I plan on using a 4-40 die to thread those axles down further, like an xray axle, so I only have shims on the inside.

Is there a shock piston in there?

That's cool. No more gooey hairballs stuck to my car.

Got the point, if it is not steel, it might be too fragile for M3 thread, question is if the alloy axle will not bend? Is it standard thread on both sides and standard M3 screws? If so it might be bit more prone to loosening M3 screw on left axle, where the friction on might move inner part of bearing.

Yes, hate that as well on Corally SSX12, that seems very similar to older CRC in many areas.
