Default Strange car!!!!

This is a very strange looking car and design that someone came up with. I found it on this website.... http://www.overrc.com/courses/course...ioncup2004.htm
What do you guys think about a design like this.....?

Yeah parts of it are but the rest of it is obviously custom made. Very Strange looking design I wonder if it works very well. It looks like a pain in the butt to change out the battery pack.

It's obviously based on a TC3 suspension and drivetrain. Looks like they're trying to get exact 50/50 F/R and 50/50 L/R balance. It's a good idea in theory but not too practical. Do you know anyone who would configure a battery pack like that?

Default Battery packs

Now if someone wants to complain about changing the Battery, The Team Losi JRXS is not the car to do it about. Its this Thing that looks like some sort of associated car.

And the funny part is the JRXS does not take that long to change the pack.
