FG 8T8-Twin Block 2 (Speeders)
The Farwan & Glott 8T8 is an experimental concept racing pod that failed to provide the desired incredible speed increases it was designed for. It doesn't utilize energy binders like most other pod racers, instead placing the pilot in a cockpit between and a little ahead of the engine blocks. The cockpit is attached to strong horizontal struts that keep the two engine pods together, allowing the pilot a better view of the race. He can also sit in front of the exhaust fumes and heat which can cause fatigue, a mirage effect and at times hallucination.

The pilot is closer to the action, but also the danger. In a wreck, the pilot is likely to be sucked into an engine or run over by the pod. For these reasons, most pilots prefer the traditional cockpit-in-back design. Still, the racey feeling of being out in front exhilarates some pilots, and the craft has a cult following.
