Yeah, I agree. Those short arms are interesting, I guess they could be made lighter (as sacrificial components), as being shorter they're less likely to break, so unless they are lighter you'd break lots of diff housings. and looking at that suspension, replacing a diff housing is no mean feat!

edit: just saw how the arms are made. I think a hard impact would shear the ball stud or damage the carbon. Nice car though. It's got predator X10 syndrome though well designed but brittle.
