A better drivetrain
Looks like they have sacrificed low CG for pushing the batteries out even further........more unbalance!!!!!!!!

it move the motor to one side, and this will be hard to change spur !!! this time, they have the long camber link, but i cannot see any improvement over the type T version !

True, see the motor is placed more to the LHS against the weight of the battery. And the front belt is at the RHS of the rear belt. But changing spur gear would become more indirect. Strange to see that the overall weight move a bit forward.

Team atlas is becoming more aggressive now.

DTM, how about buggy racing (off-road / or on-road with foam tires) in additional to the 2nd hand racing ?

not really. a 2-seater can save you from riding other ppl beside yourself and your wife/gf.
