I agree that's a sweet looking body package. I like the sidepod looking cooling inlets too. Is it a Formula Vee though? If so you guys get much better rules than here in the US. We would have to use the flat 4 VW and transaxle with swing rear axle, and best of all the beam front axle unit too, complete with ball steering rack in glorious cast iron yet!

Very sweet looking package. Looks you invested a lot of effort. Congrats!

Thanks guys, it was a lot of effort, and I am really enjoying every race with it!

Our rules are pretty much the same, except that we use the water cooled engine, are allowed to use a different steering rack as well as mk1 golf discs and calipers.

I hope my next project doesn't take 6 years to complete [-o< . Do you race Vees, @Breezyracer?
If you can't fix it with a hammer, it's probably electrical

Well, I autocross a Solo Vee, which is a Formula Vee with a rules package that allows us to run with Formula Fords. We can have disc brakes all around, rack and pinion, 1915 cc with single 2 barrel carb on the air cooled VW, any wheel and tire size we can fit, any gearing that will fit in the case, and a posi if we want it. Also 1,000 lbs with driver. Aero anything is prohibited. We use a zero roll rear suspension. I imagine that you as well.

BTW, the Formula Vee rules here specifically exclude aero, such as your splitter (nice work there BTW) and our floor must be no wider than 18 inches, I believe and completely flat. Formula Vee is well established and expensive relative to it's speed because specialists have figured out how best to use all this old tech and fight changes. There is a class called Formula First which has similar rules to yours as a next generation Formula Vee, but right now I think it's restricted to regional classes.

WoW,

This is an interesting thread.

I wonder if you could repost the last pictures of your car....
