Would you need to modify your standard type 1 chassis to fit this box?
You must remember that 99% Beetles in the USA Came out with IRS back suspension and not like our Beetles in South Africa with Swing Axle
So for them it is Easy to use the 091 type Bus box which have a larger Crown wheel and Pinnion which is much stronger than a Beetle one but they use Aftermarket Beetle main
Shafts and Gears to fit in the 091 box to make it stronger
I am buzy with a 091 conversion in to my Drag buggy chassis but it is expensive as I had to buy a Porsche 944 back suspension and mounting kits from the states to do this conversion
What do you have in mind doing ?
