That car has "I wish I was an XRay" written all over it.

It's not about how it looks like. It's about transaxle diff

It is more a slipperclutch as they use in offroad.

I believe its a center diff, with 50%:50% ratio of torque distribution between FR Axle and RR Axle,
might be inspired from 1/8 Off Road Buggy Center diff or AWD system on Subaru WRX,

I wonder what is the answer from the designer..

IMHO, with front diff configuration it would let drivetrain slightly free while cornering, while remain direct torque transfer (no slight delay such as Front One-way) to front axle

there is no center diff self-locking mechanism (Torsen, etc.), so I think its simply free diff,

on low grip track, I believe center diff without Limited slip system will transfer all motor torque to the axle (wheels) with lower grip and no torque transfered to axle, this is unwanted circumstance..

there is benefit on high grip track, with front Diff and rear Diff (with identical internal ratio Front and Rear), this system may give better traction over solid layshaft..

Looks like someone's art class job.

A lot of the suspension design is from Tamiya, the anodised parts scream either HPI/Hotbodies or Schumacher.

That's another question I wouldn't dare to answer before any track-test as in rc racing this may do nothing better to your laptimes
Full scale or offroaders is another question.

The first Kyosho Lazer Zx had a ceter diff like that, it didn't work and racers switched to a rigid pulley. I think Peak performance made one.
