Don't you think that the relative positions of the tyre contact patches (which determines the overall load transfer) on the Deltawing more closely resemble a Trike than a conventional car?
Perhaps in terms of weight transfer (was it 10% front roll stiffness ratio?), but the front track width is not zero (to be fair, an actual trike will be able to resist some roll moment due to the width of the contact patch). A more important distinction (IMO) between a trike and the DeltaWing is the fact that there are two tires on the front axle, each capable of operating at differing conditions (alignments, etc).
