You can see how the driveshafts and turnbuckles are swept backwards, indicating that the wheels are much further back than the original position.
After looking through the pictures a bit more carefully, I think that what I wrote before about increased wheelbase, is not accurate.

In the end John Pape's comment might be the only correct reason they used the susp. arms inverted.

Hmmm, they had a speed gun mounted on the straight which came up with everyones speed as the passed it. Fastest saw was around 65.7kmh so pretty fast. But Chris kept saying it felt slow compared to 5cell brushless.

pretty fast?? nah with 12turn and 6 cells on a smaller straight top drivers reached 83kmh (EC austria) Imagine what speeds can be reached with 3.5 and 5cells

Unfortunately, 4 cells is way too slow. I hope next year JMRCA change the rule and at least allow brushless
