What is PBS suspension??

looking at that picture of what seems to be an 8th scale (maybe 10th scale not sure) 2wd kyosho i would assume were checking out the front shocks being mounted on the rear of the arm and the rear shocks also being mounted on the front of the arms is completely opposite from whatís normal... also the sway bars front and rear are opposite of whatís normal... very weird set up! I know the new losi 8X rear shocks can be mounted on the front of the arm for indoor so Iím guessing this is an indoor set up correct? Is this what pbs suspension is?

PBS is "pillow ball suspension" in the front like on the Mugen mbx series and the latest Associated RC8 3.1

Its a BMT 911 1/8 scale buggy, it was the first production buggy with Pillow Ball Suspension, given their use in 1/8 IC Open.

Reminds me back in the 90's where Picco showed their 1st INS-BOX. Pieter Bervoets wrote a column on his MyTSN site that it was a plain copy of the Serpent design, bla bla bla.

Not that long afterwards Picco came with an aswer that Serpent should not whine about copying because Serpent was a master in copying, with that he mentioned the pivot ball suspension on the Serpent Excel which was Serpent its 1st car with pivot balls that it was copied from Picco cars.
