I happened to be there last year as they were putting the very first one together for shakedown, and got to spend some time poking around the car. It's definitely cool, and a big change form the old Formula Russell/Mazda cars they used.

That said, from a school standpoint, I'm not sure it's an improvement in my mind. Things happen much quicker in them and it will be interesting to see if it impacts the learning curve. I know their goal now is really to promote their race series, for which this car makes perfect sense.

Overall, I think the schools are good (and fast), but definitely not the cheapest way to get to that level of knowledge. Especially if you are local in the Bay Area where we have a lot of options.
