@.Joel, is it yours?

i wonder if the steering is more or less twitchy then a standard buggy?

MORE, looks like you steer with your knees the seats that close to the front axle.

Must be a balance thing???

It's Gav's @ Peter Lynn.  I think it's being offloaded / sold.

My, my, that buggy looks like a solution where there isn't a problem...

I'm all for designs for the heck of it (fun to tinker, etc.) but honestly this looks like a step backward, not forward.  I'm trying to imagine just how short the rider would have to be to even make using those foot pegs possible.  It looks as if the pilot's knees would be bent well in excess of 90 degrees which would be highly uncomfortable (if not darn right painful) after a very short ride.

      I had a zipper on my 16m venom 2 give up on me last week. Bloody frustrating, as it was the inflate zipper and I was about to launch 🤬. The slide was so worn out that it won’t close the teeth anymore.
      anyway, I have fitted new waterproof zips to an arc before, but they can be a bit expensive and hard to find. So I thought it was a good chance to test out a Velcro alternative.
      its basically just a short sock and Velcro opening similar to the deflates in the flysurfer kites. 
      the Velcro valves work quite well. I inflated the kite and slowly opened the Velcro. No air was escaping until it opened far enough to for the end of the sock to open.
      Sorry, no pictures before they got sewn in. But a few pointers I worked out for anyone wanting to do this mod.

      -Make the sock width about 50mm more then the zipper opening in the kite.
      - place sticky ripstop inside the kite where the zipper stitching was removed.
      - measure from the opening in the kite to the cell wall, subtract 1cm. This is how long the sock needs to be.
      -sew the sock in the direction you would use it to inflate the kite (pointing towards the centre)
      - sew a deflate valve into the trailing edge to replace the deflate zipper.
