I think its silly to pick on this car for not being road legal.
It was designed as a track only car that is simple enough for most people to maintain. As a track car it will be mighty fast, awd and light enough as a track car that I probably wouldn't need a dedicated tow vehicle(important for those of us who don't have trucks). It really is like a superpowered go kart/shifter kart with a suspension. Wheeeeeee!
Ugly? well I have seen plenty of track cars that werent exactly pretty.

Due, youre right. My POS single axle 260 dollar HF special would handle that. Thats pretty cool.

I agree. It's a track car. But they shouldn't have compared it to the Atom.

I'm sure the only reason they compared it to the AA is due to the AA's awesome handling.

Oh good, they finished the curbs. I can leave my dune buggy at home now.
