Just saw that 801x drivelines very cool was the weight distro super lopsided though?
What I've read no. The motor was angled at 15 deg to bring the COG back to center. The 801 was a pretty awesome looking buggy to bad parts availability was bad.

There are actually a couple of people who have done this. I think the first was an Italian company named Bergonzoni. I might be off on this, but that is the first time I remember seeing in on a buggy.
