Looks like a very nice car, with some nice new and proven concepts.
Here are the spec`s from the website:

Lightweight front spool with Heavy Duty delrin cups.
CVS constant velocity drive-shafts as standard.
22 ball Differential for maximum drive and reliability.
Ultra lightweight 7075-T6 bulkheads.
Ultra lightweight eccentric cams.
Slider (rack-type) steering mechanism for more constant speed and true ackerman.
Ball and pin type suspension mounting for reduced stress loadings.
Fully adjustable, suspension geometry, wheelbase, caster, camber, roll centre, track width, ackerman, droop, anti dive, anti squat, front toe in/out, ride height and much more.
Ultra long camber link positions for improved cornering speeds.
2mm Aerospace carbon fibre chassis and long top deck with optimised flex.
Efficient transmission with twin Kevlar belts and precision CNC pulleys.
20T centre pulleys 40T spool and diff pulley for optimum belt speed and wrap.
Symmetrical chassis design for balanced flex characteristics.
Ultra smooth Teflon plated threaded alloy shock absorbers for extreme smoothness and durability featuring Teflon pistons as standard.
Stiff 3mm shock towers with fine adjustment positions.
Carbon Fibre impregnated wishbones for less weight and improved stiffness.
Slim wishbone design for improved chassis sensitivity.
Non-step front bumper for improved aero.
Optimised and centralised balance for reduced moments


So, the CVS axles are very nice, they really make a difference,
since the wheelspeed and acceleration stay constant in relation to the spool/diff when turning in the corners.
No more vibrations...
The linear steeringsystem is also a nice concept, think a far better feeling on the steeringwheel. Also the 22ball diff sounds cool.
At last a car that stands out of the rest.

Think i`m going to try this one..!!

Kind regards,

Roy Bakker.

Nice steering system, looks a bit like TC3's steering, but with some improvements...

Thats doing short..
I really never seen a car at the moment with that steeringsystem, CVS axles, 22ball Diff, equal flex chassis.

Offcourse there are some look a likes with other cars, think this one has just a lot off new things, don`t you think?

Is there any pictures that aren't computer generated? Cars never look quite the same from designing them to production.

I guess the car doesn't physically exist yet, hence the lack of real pictures.

Design looks okay, although it's missing camber-link length adjustment (just one inner hole).

Just hope it's not made by the factory that used to make the old TiR stuff, their tolerances were awful!

If they get it right it probably doesn't need it. I can't recall ever using the shorter 2 holes on any of my 416s

Cool looking ride, the yellow should look pretty stylin'
