It looks more like the ABC Hobby Genetic than a Tamiya M chassis.

Are you sure it's not just FWD? That's what it looked like to me.

It would be cool if they did the same thing they did back in the day with the mini RS4s and make the wheelbase adjustable from 210mm-225mm by flipping the rear arms!

Default MacPherson/Chapman strut?

Does it look like the suspension is a single lower A-arm while the upper one is fixed?
