This makes me a little sad.

This is for those that want form over function, not those that want an incredible driving experience.
I wouldn't swap my struts for anything, I reckon Zelda handles better than my Mum's new Focus, she points lovely and can definitely hold her ground when cornering through the hills.

Geez all you bloody beam-hating, strut-gropers lol. Surely an awesome solution to reach offroad supremacy for the cheap ol' strut superbug specially considering how much it costs nower days for a beam style dub (that isn't a rust bucket) to use as a base for a baja (as opposed to the price of a superbug).

How many times have threads appeared on here about people asking in regards to feasibility of making a decent baja out of a super bug? this is their solution :tu:




(_!_/) (_!_/)
69' baja: kombi box, thing spindles, irs, disc front, type 3 rear drums, 2 inch lift kit, 31x10 rears. :tu:
New engine in process: 94mm p&bs, 74mm C/w chomol Crank, 35.5x39 SP heads, turbo. Wierd combo, hopeful torque monsta!

An engineer would laugh at you if you tried to get one of those crudely made things certified in Aus and those volksrod beam extenders....:crazy:

You can slam both statically and bagged a Super with the stock front end if you know what your doing and still end up with a decent ride quality.

So many people trying to reinvent the wheel.

Yep, if only people knew where to look.
Could easily have put Zelda on bags, I just think a static ride is a superior quality ride (others may say different, I know a lot of Subbies on bags that are racing actually), that and bags are for groceries.

I guess we do need innovation, but I would much prefer to see it in the upgrading of performance, handling etc etc rather then on getting your beetle the lowest.

1+ McPherson struts rule. I love that type of front end more than any other.
