  • Shift Rod, Shift Rod Holder, & Shift Rod Bushing, Shift Rod Adjuster all preassembled and installed for easy assembly.

This chassis uses a clean slate design incorporating over 30 years of VW experience to take the best of the VW designs and join them with sensible improvements needed to bring the VW into the 21st century.
  • Uses HD Throttle cable to eliminate stock cable breakage. This cable also allows for the built in pedal stop to work.
  • Modified distance between brake and center tunnel to allow for HD Aluminum Adjustable Accelerator Pedal. This helps prevent your foot from getting stuck behind the brake pedal or the known "Double Pedal" (hitting accelerator when braking) that happens with the stock distance between the brake and center tunnel.
  • Clutch cable hooks onto clutch pedal outside of center tube for easy changes and lubrication.
  • Heavy duty materials used throughout chassis add durability, and add critical weight to the front of the chassis for better balance, stability, and front end control.

Other wheel bases or floor pan dimensions available for custom order. Please call for pricing.

Pictures below show the chassis powder coated in Bengel Silver. Powder Coating is extra and depending on color does vary in pricing. Gloss Black is currently $375/chassis & Bengel Silver is currently $525/chassis.
We still currently do require a core for the rear torsion however we are currently working on a design which will not require a core charge.
Current core charge for IRS rear torsion is $399 & Swing Axle rear torsion is $325 if you do not have a core for return.
Everything is already welded & fully assembled when ready for shipment.
