Good frame work :)
I'm not sure if you're building this for a FSE project or simlar, so i am unsure of what specific guidelines you have to adhere to, but there are a few things I would change, suspension wise.
The front suspension, looks like you've tried to incorporate both pushrods to a single damper (different version of an anti-roll-bar??), this would work in practice, if you had 2 cantilever style setups going to the one shock (like the rear suspension) but as is, because you have that fixed member with both pushrods going into, at an angle different to their natural transversing axis, you'll lose a lot of dapmening and put a LOT of unwanted lateral force through the chassis itself.
With the rear, what you've done wishbone wise is good, but the wheel hubs should be mouted with rose joints, like at the front, and only one point of pivot on the bottom of the wheel hub and then on the back or front side of the hub I'd put another adjustable tie rod to have better control over toe adjustments.
I haven't the time to check the roll center, but it's something you should look up if you haven't already :)
