Interesting, seems like a lot of faith in the torsional strength of the car itself. Looks scary to actually get under.

May need an alignment after use IMO. It reminds me of the animal trap , wear your tennis shoes and be ready to run. huh. $1000. Says it can move the car around in flat mode
I sure would not try it on the loose brick type drive as shown

Scary to think that some of the tools we use and trust all the time were probably, when in prototype, as crude as these!
