CHASSIS
VW automatic frame standard height but an easy job to lower.

FRONT: Transverse torsion bars cross-mounted in the lower tube, so that each individual torsion bar spans the full width of the car, the upper tube containing an anti-roll bar which connects both upper trailing links to each other.

REAR: Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) half-shafts, jointed at each end with trailing arms controlling camber angle changes. This set-up gives much safer and very manageable handling


Based on a VW Beetle  automatic transmission.
This comes with a much improved rear suspension.
Swing axles were replaced by half-shafts, jointed at each end with trailing arms controlling camber angle changes and reducing the over steer which was characteristic of the standard layout.

IRS (Independent rear Suspension)
- Porsche 924 jointly designed by VW and Porsche as a replacement for the 914, and uses VW IRS rear suspension with a VW engine (up front)
- Porsche 944 evolved from the 924, early years used VW IRS rear suspension, then when the 944Turbo came in upgraded with alloy arms that will bolt directly up to a VW IRS car (Beetle, Type 3 etc.)




WHEELS
Goodyear Ducaro GA 205/15 on Ford Mags
Same Rolling Diameter as a Type 3 VW -

If you wanted you have enough room to run 295/15's I have these on my other kit car

However, 275/15 would be preferred
