Good progress!  I think I have to upgrade my turbo  Grin

That big-arse turbo has a warning under it "Warning! - Reproductive and cancer harm".
HAH! What a load of crap!

A turbo that big is a chick-magnet for sure.  Grin

Not much progress to show. Moving shop and the ?59 is in Sweden for caging and backhalfing.

Old 67 is tore down and sold, and almost finished with the move!


New shop is approved by Bax  Smiley

Ended up buying ladder bars and coilovers from RLR/Strange. Based on the mounting points we decided on 600lbs springs.

New cage and tubes for the backhalfing is bent up. Progress may continue Smiley

The tubes are in Docol R8, which is a Swedish made chromoly tubing.

Thanks, I think they will be a bit stiffer than 29mm torsion bars. I haven't calculated the wheel rate yet, but think that it'll be 450-475lbs?

Gday Erlend.
Nice build-up, thanks for sharing.
How much weight do you think you've saved by using the ladder bar and coil-overs? Is it a lot?

Dave

I'm actually not sure. My guess is atleast 50lbs. Hoping for a race ready car without me at 1600-1650lbs Smiley

Agreed Smiley On both parts. Can't wait to see the result. Last additional request to Ola is a reinforcing of the mid mount plates on the frame fork side, to get some triangulation. He will also make the flywheel shatter shield. It will be the rear most connection between the frame forks and the horisontal bars over the gearbox and tubes going back from the main hoop.

Small but important update is that main hoop is mocked in place.

Next up is the cage forward of the hoop.

Then rest of the back half tubes.

The latest addition is a couple of bars to further brace the framehorns.

On my former 67 I hade 1 1/2” bars going from the gearbox mount to the cage at 90 degrees to the framehorns (straight up).

But at launches I still could see the engine “hopping” in the back (had to check it out on slow-mo footage..)


This car will be braced a heck of a lot more.. the bars vertically above the framehorns will be tied into the framehorns in front of and back of the axles. And of course to the main hoop.

The braces at the back are of course removable.

I think I've narrowed wheel choice between Champions or Billet Specialties.

Need to get the car back to measure width and backspace.

8-10" at the back and 3,5ish inches up front.

All the work looks really well done but why did you keep the frame forks? they need so much bracing to make strong enough and are heavier than some chromoly tube would be doesn't seem to make sense to me  Smiley

Good point. The original plan was a RLR backhalf kit, without framehorns.

But when the price jumped up almost 100% I really couldn't justify it.

Ola could sure build it himself, but the way we have done it now is faster and easier.





And I kind of like the idea that the car has a complete VW frame  Roll Eyes
