 Ulp, goodbye to any sort of thing you could ever afford to do yourself!  I think these are Ohlins dampers with Hyperco springs.  A super adjustable blade type antisway bar is found here as well.  The wheel wells are made of kevlar.  Air jacks too.

 ACS got it right.  One thing that annoys me to no end is that almost all rocker suspensions I see on cars are falling rate.  Designers just don’t get it.  Even some offroad designers get it wrong.  The car has a rocker with correct rising rate geometry.  Due to running a DOT tire, the car is set to minimize tire shock to maximize mechanical grip and the spring rates are really low, about 400 in/lbs.  Correct roll centers means that there is geometric anti roll so they can get away with this.

 I am pretty sure these are Ohlins cannisters because they don’t look like Penske, JRZ, Dynamic or Moton.  You can see the dry sump lines for the transaxle directly below.

 Breather tank and heat exchanger for the transaxle.  You can see the ducted fan for it above.  The oil pump is integral with the transaxle I think.

 Fabricated upright and lower control arms.  You can see the ABS tone generator on the axle.  This is more F1 than Ford!
