Optima Mid Hybrid by Simple Nature Spirit

I've followed passionately the blog by Simple Nature Spirit about the resurrection of his very singular hybrid optima chassis. Combining a front optima geartrain with mid reartrain and a chain is very surprising. He even succeded to convert the optima original diff into ball diff!
The steering linkage is a combination of optima parts and free interpretation of ultima ones!
Not to mention the front monoshock design, inspired by the yokomos of the golden era...
But the most interesting part is of course the rear gearbox secret... check his blog if you're curious. Very good job!
