I can only imagine that it works very well at that very low speed rolling terrain kind of driving like the video and pictures show... and that it would fail miserably at anything over 13kph.
flex doesn't seem to be a problem, but structural rigidity does.

thinking outside the box, that's for sure though.

So the body basically follows the front axle. I'll give you an A for effort but a D- for design.

The front end is definitely not working AT ALL. I'm still going through the photobucket album but I'm hoping he did the same thing to the front

More pics to come

I was so confused....



Oh! Bump cans! Brilliant!







Still not sure what the point is of doing any work on the front end, because it definitely isn't moving



KOH ready! I'm not gonna lie, it actually looks kind of cool here

Definitely unique.
But the front end needs some work, it seems completely useless as well as the rear shocks.
The way the are mounted they are moving with everything. Doesnt make sense.

Nice looking work though

Umm, interesting, without something to keep the axle from rotating I wonder what it does when you stomp on the gas.

Rear track bar might help you keep that rear end under.... whatever your calling that upper pivoting bar thing.
