It looks pretty much like a type-r, excluding the shocks

It looks like someone forgot to put the top deck on their JRXS-R dirt oval conversion..

Looks interesting. The shocks really should be flipped over 180* to reduce suspension mass. We would rather have the shock piston & rod as part of the suspension mass and not heavy the cylinder & fluid...

That will move the weight further out from the centerline, but suspension mass is probably more important...

Don't think so. The shocks are mounted on suspension parts on both sides. All of the shock is unsprung mass!?!




But the Suspension arms are very very short. I think it just works good on very high grip tracks.

I'm not loving the shock position! It's not efficace

I agree, the shocks should be flipped. I can't really tell what the other end is attached to but the shock shaft/piston end should be attached to the bellcrank. Probably makes almost no difference but I'm a perfectionist.

Also, the super short arms are a bit of a worry. Might work well like that though, have to wait and see.
