    That thing might handle well, but it surely looks goofy as hell. I wouldn't be caught dead driving one. Plus, with that weight distribution, wouldn't you end up doing wheelies as soon as you add a bit of torque.

    Using the Atom as a test mule for the BladeGlider concept is pretty cool!

    I read the article, and it makes me ponder two things:

    1) The article mentions that the front narrow set of wheels as acting somewhat like a single wheel, but if you take that to the extreme, then that would say a trike would handle better - which seems very counter-intuitive. But maybe a trike is just too far to the "other" extreme.

    2) They added a rear sway bar to the test mule modified Atom. Maybe that is playing a large role in improving the handling as well.

    BTW: It would be nice to see how they added a rear sway bar to the Atom
