Damn! I'd been wanting to build that same chassis!

Check out http://www.rorty-design.com/content/beetle.htm for information on that setup he's using.

Nice

Hugo,

OMG, you've gone and done it! Now you officially have the hottest VW Bug EVER. I'm not joking here. When this is finished ABSOLUTELY NOTHING will be as amazing. Thanks so much for doing this, you've established the highest of bars to reach!

If I'm not mistaken that IS Bob Frost-Stevenson's design (rorty-design). He's designed my front end as well.

Sincerely,

Jason Ford

Yeah, SOME modification! Those are Audi front control arms? How are you setting up the geometry? I like the idea of cast aluminum arms, less momentum during travel.

Are you doing the fabrication yourself or having a shop do it?

How much time do you have into it at the point of your pics?

Are the bars that tie the rear-most subframe to the main hoop removeable to allow removing the engine?

Any idea what the balance of the chassis will be with that sexy lump out back?

Thanks in advance.
