Thank you for the kind words Suhaib Bhai, your enthusiasm for this project of ours is very welcome. I humbly say this on behalf of the team that it has been a huge learning experience for us, and we will continue to tinker with this vehicle hopefully long into the future to learn about vehicle dynamics, powertrains, electronics, materials etc. Faisal Malik has very kindly given us carte blanche in designing the vehicle howsoever we saw fit. Quite a few decisions that we've taken were purely based on calculations and engineering principles (rightly or wrongly - it remains to be seen in the heat of battle), while others were thanks to the immense knowledge and experience of the fabrication team. We're be raising the bar on the vehicle slowly and steadily, until we're sure that the vehicle can actually do a full rally (or a couple) without breakdowns or other major issues. With that being said, here are a few things we'd like to say;
- Suspension is being looked into. Probably need to tub the rear wheel wells. Even before our run we knew we need greater rear travel - which was confirmed with the run. Probably due to the long wheelbase, it's not that bouncy or difficult to drive. Although as @saidhi said, it'll need a better suspension to use its not-inconsiderable power more often in a rally.
- Roll cage meets or exceeds FIA T1 specifications with copious amounts of gusseting. Better safe than sorry. Designed and installed by a metallurgist, a machinist and a plant welding expert.
- For more power, there's always more boost!
