First thing that came to mind after seeing that is this: "Built like a Mack truck."
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.

They lost me at the word hydraulic. The most expensive and complicated repairs I have ever done have been on Mercedes cars with the hydraulic suspension systems. They are truly a nightmare.

I am a big Colin Chapman fan. Build it just light enough so it wont break, then lighten it a little more, and keep it simple. Frankly, I doubt this is any lighter than a good moly tube axle and coil-overs, and it sure as HELL isn't simpler. I call stuff like this "whizz-bangery to impress the cheap seats".
