This is pretty wild looking...
I'm trying to decipher what I am looking at....is that an 'inverted spur gear' to keep the motor near the centerline of the vehicle?

That's what I see too... Very unique.

We don't race this class locally, so I'm curious how an independent rear suspension chassis fits into the current ruleset? Looks very interesting, and I'm curious to see more. Like that the body looks like it's going to be close to the current F1 specs.

Looks like it's actually a planetary setup when you go to their FB group and look around...

How heavy is it? Looks like it is a lot heavier than 1050 grams. Awesome design though.

Those appear to be earlier development images that led to the planetary ring style - spur gear design - brilliant solution.

car looks amazing!! I think I'll definitely pick one up when it's released. Even if it doesn't qualify for the F1 rules, I find the mechanisms intriguing.
That being said, does anyone else have trouble picturing how the rear suspension works? The pivots look to be moving orthogonally to the shock motion.
