Interesting. Also interesting that the video angle obscures the first linkage that transmits the load to the pivot assembly.

Anyway, any particular reason they did this? I cannot readily see an advantage to more convention designs. Don't get me wrong, different or "for the hell of it" are good enough reasons, just curious.

Pushrod leaf spring is 1,000% for the hell of it. Pushrod suspension is cool, though.
