"Actually not giving much away here as the scale is a gazillion times normal (In Engineering terms this is ten to the power of lots) and also the analysis doesn't quite cope with the fibrous, layered nature of the plywood in the chassis. Which does work as planned., damping these modes. Does look cool, though and they are finding out interesting stuff thanks Team D01!"
