Though that does not look like Spirit radius arms the rest of the work on the suspension looks like Spirit work. They would build stuff and send overseas for rally type racing. Very cool video.

I was going to say it had that Spirit signature as well.

Didn't Spirit do the suspension on the two Bronco's that raced in the Paris to Dakar Rally years ago before the race moved away from North Africa? It does look fun...

Rally Raid rules are very different to, say the Baja 1000, etc. Suspension travel is limited ( 10 or 12 inches, from memory), the roll over structure is very different and many of the stages are designed around navigational skills, rather than a laid out course (much the same as DAKAR, only shorter in length).
