So what's wrong with the shock position?!!

It's similar to the B44 (tower in front of shocks) and gives good protection to the shocks during impact etc

I think it looks just right to me!

I suppose in a crash the shock could hit a thin object like a track barrier (from the top)... but isn't that the case with all buggies? When hit awkward enough, they break.

I like the narrow layout, it looks nice and so do those bulkheads running down the length of the car. I can imagine though that like the 2WD Vega, if you break something, it's either cheap or set you back a lot with those bulkheads. Then again, the construction seems fit to drive through walls!

It sure is not a Predator, but it's beyond me why they'd name it after something that only eats plant life

wooooow that car looks toooo nice
and it looks more than bullit proof! If north corea starts an atomic war the vega 4 will be the only thing to suvive^^

but with that top deck/bulkhead it might be too stiff with too less chassis flex?
strange things happen touring carbuilders are going for more flex offroad builders can't decide so they choose to let it be a drivers desicion. Only as a thought^^

Other than.that i might be ordering the car only because of the bling xD
