They made it turn left AND right

That's a good looking race car right there.

X2. It's cool, but not as cool as if it were an older chassis highly modified to get similar results.

Re: Truck arm/NASCAR style suspension

This car was actually built to support an autism organization.
It was auctioned and proceeds went to fund IGNITE which is a program for teens and young adults with autism!

Re: Truck arm/NASCAR style suspension

there is a reason some of the fastest cars in the world run the truck arm suspension. its fast and simple to make adjustments, just watch a NASCAR pit stop. the only draw back would be exhaust them truck arms take up a lot of room and a full exhaust is almost impossible.
