Since it looks like you're outside of the US, you can pre-order the car on the official site here.

US customers can get it here.

It's not just to broaden the market, initial testing showed the car is easier to drive and provides more overall traction. Also the car has much less parts, which makes it more affordable while keeping the high quality and the other nice features.

A lot of parts from the old car can also be used in the new one, all suspension parts, diff internals,...

Kind regards

Was there any testing done on drag efficiency between the belt and shaft? Just curious what kind of impact this car will have for the limited horsepower spec classes (17.5 and higher).

The car is running very "free", in 13.5t blinky we set a new track record on my hometrack....i don't think you will notice a difference in drag.
The car still has a super good corner speed, just because of the very low cg.
kind regards

Looks like the arms will just about bolt straight over. The shocks may have to fix to the chassis differently, wouldn't think you could use am08-1 over the belt.

Are the arms the same part number? I wonder why the alloy over carbon? Sounds like they use the new am06s-m hubs.

What gives it more grip? The motor layout?

How do you adjust the belt tension and is there going to be a front gear diff available when the kits start shipping?

So Oleg for the aluminum chassis to clear the motor you made a recess the lenght of the battery on both side and for the carbon just a slot on both side?
How thick is both chassis?
What is the decision to change the steering rack to a dual bell crank vs the system on the A700?
Thanks!

Looks cool! I'm a spec racer mainly so I'll stick with my shaft drive A700. Glad to see this car will grow the brand more and always good to see something different.
