Yes undertrays are still widely used - but it's not clear wether this car will come with one or not. the other option is chassis film. This design doesn't have a great problem with dirt ingress since there isn't much that could be damaged with dirt and the majority of the drivetrain is sealed.

The problem with this lay out will be motor / pinion access. There isn't a clear shot of the motor mounting but I assume the cells would need removing and possibly require a special (ball hex) driver to make motor install / removal easier.

Hey whats that cavalieri motor, is it just a motor or a hint? (rumour mode engaged)

I know from inside information that there is no problem getting the motor in and out with out removing batteries. But who takes out a motor with out removing batteries.

Lazy people? lol
good point though. The battery posts are the parts that really seem to get in the way on this design of car.

I meant dirt ingression from the lack of body, by the way. Just my little joke.

The only thing I can see that I wouldnt like is that the inner camber links will not go lower than the top plate. On the BJ4 we had to lower the ball ends quite a bit to make it go. Other than that it looks fantastic. Cant wait to see it go round the track

Those at the Teesside Regional should get the first veiwings.

Apparently vaseline over the lens gives you a soft focus.
