Here is a picture of the Serpent buggy. That was my first pro car (1985)

Btw.: The Serpent Cobra had overdrive on the front wheels. If I remember correct, it was 50 in the front and 51 in the rear. No center diff.
When many drivers talks about overdrive on their new cars, it is not a new thing...

the buggy looks strange with the rear shocks attaching to the shock tower on the front, rather than on the rear of the shock tower. they must see an advantage to this, wonder what it is.

Keeps the rookies from running balls out and smacking the back of your car busting the shock shafts in the qualifier you really needed.

Yes this has happened to me...
