    are there any other 208s are already competing? i don t think, so this can be the r4t 208.
    Still it is stock tunnel. Can they get prop-shaft and exhaust in?

    Another thing I can see is that the car doesn't have McPherson mounting point at the rear, so if this is a picture of R4T, than it looks like it will really keep suspension of same type with stock car. Since most of these cars have torsion beam rear axle, it may be pretty difficult to make it working well with 4WD...

    And probably also R3T, since they have the engine and box inhouse.

    Cool, then hopefully soon after we will see testing videos.
