How do you get the engine out once the car is assembled?
It appears you would have to remove the body every time.

I just wondered why not design it so the whole drivetrain could drop out of the bottom? It looks like the engine may be too wide, but if not, you could design a cradle that bolted to the engine/transaxle and then to the frame... just an idea.

I'm thinking in make some hatch in the rear like the New Beetle with the rear spoiler.

Hugo,
What type of rear suspension/hubs do you plan to use?
Anymore progress on the car?


Thanks,
Jeff-

Finally after many hours of testing this is the right geometry of the front suspension.

Lookin' good. Still no brakes here, I'm not sure what the delay is, let me know if I should be doing some checking.

Rear brakes came in yesterday. Fronts came today. I'll open up the fronts tonight and make sure it's all there and get some more pics. PM me as to what you want me to do with these beauties!

Jason



Are they big enough?

I never seen a bolt on kit from wilwood, but you can check this:

CSP-Shop


In the section wheels/brakes they have a 4 piston vented disc for the bug
