Strange how the bottom wingmount bracing is that low, where it has almost no use ??

Isn't it the other way round? The Xray looks like this car?

We should stay away from starting a thread by saying "it's a copy of X". It just does more harm than good.

For those that want to know how long the proto appeared.

Is the first SOAR buggy i've ever seen. Xray had that protoype since or before the euros.

I think they saw it and made it their way as they dont have a tight schedule or dont have to produce thousands of parts as XRAY does, so maybe thats why its out before.

Renderings of the older SOAR, S44 I believe, have been out, my guess is, for about a year?

The only thing similar to the Xray is the hub, and it's highly likely the geometry is different. The arms are drastically different. While odd that suck a unique design is showing up on 2 cars in the same time frame, it's likely very different on the track.

I started with this hobby in late 2011, so my bad for not knowing about that proto.

Soar had the style RENDERINGS OUT before xray
Mugen's had it in their onroad cars for about 3 yrs.
SH has had it in its buggy for maybe 6.

No body cares until xray does it. Lol
And gives them credit on the "invention". Double lol

if you read hudy's interview, he tested the design in the 80's. TRIPLE LOL
any other takers?
perhaps the horse and buggy v2, in the 1320's was using the design... who cares as long as long as its a better design, than the previous version
