It raced at a BORE race earlier this year... As people went over to look at it the owners weren't very friendly and didn't really seem to want anyone to look at it. When I saw it off the start it was all over the place and I'm pretty sure it didn't finish.

I can only see 2 options, either the drive axle goes down inside the trailing arm, or possibly even a fluid drive?

Been tried a bunch of times over the years. Most likely a drive chain in the trailing arm

Got to be chain drive. Been done a lot in Tenn. KY area for hillclimb and rock running. I have read about several cars with chain drive, bus automatic and big VWs on propane.

I didn't go look at it but everyone was saying it was a chain drive system.

Martin Christensen (AGM) tried the same thing in a Class 10 many years ago - first chain driven and then belt driven but both kept breaking. Finally gave up on the car and went conventional and won Class 10 Championships. That was in early 90's I think. I towed him back one time when he broke a belt out testing in Plaster City.

Yes she ran our last race this year. I teched it in the trailer and they only wanted to tell me what I needed to know. They weren't unfriendly, just tight lipped about the unconventional design. Dnf due to electrical bug IIRC. She said she'd be back so I hope to see it finish a race.

Got to agree What the hell is this I think we would have a hard time letting this race with the 10 cars I don't know??

Why as long as it meets the class rules? In one thread people encourage going outside the box RE C1's-truggies and in another thread they toss rocks at the free thinkers? I bet if it was a UTV the minions would praise it as an engineering marvel and this will be the C1-TT beater!

Was it yellow? I remember it at I think a Lucerne race and I was shoed away, the wife had just got out of the car and I went over to check it out.

It raced the powder puff race this year. At the start line , I tried to take a picture of it and she kept starting the car and moving so I couldn't get close. A guy came over and asked what I was doing because I was making her nervous.

Lame! If you don't want people to see it or take pics don't bring it to a race with 1000's of people. That's just unreasonable. A bus box?
