At 3:15 PM Central Time, Team Associated post its third teaser of the yet-unnamed 3D-printed 4WD prototype buggy to its social media pages. Unlike the previous two, this post to the Team Associated Facebook page included no famous quote or hashtags - but showed off more detail. It's a close-up shot of the front bulkhead and steering assembly as taken from behind the front shock tower on the right side.
The front shock tower mounts to two very large bunny ears sticking up from the top of the front diff case, which should offer lots of support for the carbon fiber piece. The car is clearly shaft-driven, and while the translucent stereolithography material doesn't allow us to see whether or not it's a gear differential up front, that's likely a safe bet. The steering assembly uses two bellcranks and a rack with forward-pointing ball studs for easy Ackerman adjustments. The chassis brace connects from the top plate to an aluminum chassis standoff that also provides support for what looks like a servo mount on the right side.
