Listed as "swiss cheesed". At first glance I thought it had a hand-hammered/ball-peened treatment. But those are holes, not dimples.

A guy has this near me. Is this a special chassis or some home modified hob-job?

Home modified, but looks like nice work.

This is my lightweight chassis contribution. Sometimes you don't want all of the carbon fiber. Why be greedy? 😁

I love it and a display piece, but I don't think I would have the stones to run it.

I don't have a good place to run it. I don't like running off road buggies on the street. I'd love to have a dirt track around here.
