    Speaking of ground clearance... I thope they considered Urs' theorem, which says the car will always sit lower than designed for (so keep some harder springs and shorter pullrods at hand).

    Concerning 1), you could copy Lotus' reactive ride-height suspension system.

    Plooba, the tripod inner piece is bonded to the CFRP shaft and the tripod housing is connected to the gear. There is very little clearance between the shaft and the housing.

    I thought blasting through the cones was a bad thing?

    At least for us one single cone cost us the 2nd place in FSG Autocross... And without big wings or big parties nobody hardly remembers we were there, let alone with 2nd fastest car.

    Status 2012: Going to North America, everything is almost ready, just needs to be finished.
