Nissan Deltawing - How am I just learning about this?

I'm trying to figure out how it manages to turn at all.

That's a bit harsh, the car hasn't been unusually unreliable.

In this years Le Mans, it was running very well until it was punted off, and finished fifth in American Petit Le Mans.

Great vid with Chris Harris. I liked when Ben talked... I want to see that rear suspension linkage in more detail though.

Thats why I said from wrecks. Other drivers have not figured out the dimentions of the Delta wing from thier cars and dont know if they have feet or inches to pass it.

Nissan gets the brunt end of the minor clippings beacsue it weighes so little comparied to the heavier cars.

Its like when I body slam a toddler, the baby goes flying, and I shrug it off
