Love it, most interesting concept idea since the Hot Bodies CR8 which never saw the light of day.

No idea if its any good, but love seeing companies try new things.

It's funny, I thought of the Agama buggy as an 8ight clone in its early days, but they really seem to have come into their own since then. Kudos to them for thinking outside the box and shaking-up the 1/8 category.

Nice, cool to sseesteps still being taken to advance the class. Reminds me of the Piktor with that front end silhouette, and the Magic M1B with that wing mount. Great to see what comes of it.

Very cool. Hopefully they cut the shocks under the body + a guard for the rearmost one. They’ll be so much better protected. The thing looks like it runs really nice in the video.

Unique, but I fail to see how that shock arrangement manages to lower the CG more than a tiny amount. The only weight loss up high is the weight of part of the shock tower.

They aren't any less protected than the shocks now...

In fact, the shocks are now much better protected from both impacts and, if they come up with a wrap-over body, probably also dirt. I wonder if that's why the shocks have no rubber boots. The lay-down shocks should also produce far less drag, so there could be aerodynamic advantages to discerned as well. While ultimate performance is still to be determined, this looks like a far more interesting buggy than the Mayako.

Yes, I am aware. I view this design as an opportunity to greatly improve their protection and consistency.

How do you make adjustments to the wait distribution along the suspension arm?
