I'll watch for those. Might be one close enough to drag somebody to.

Thanks!

John, Welcome back to the group. Skayt'R6 looks great like everything you do. Congrats on getting it finished.

Thank you Chuck. I miss your visits. I remember when you helped me move the SkaytR6 molds into the barn! :lol:

Racing at Pacific Raceway July 20/21, Benny. No admission charges when we run there and the pits are open.

What did you use for bearings and hubs in your spindles? In my desire to design and build my own car, I always get stuck in the 'use off the shelf spindles/hubs' or 'design and fab my own'.

I like your spindles, they look great! (and the rest of the car of course!)

I designed and fabricated the front spindles and rear hub carriers. Tight fit in the 10" wheels. Using the early VW Rabbit wheel bearings. VW Rabbit front drive flange used in the rear with shortened VW Rabbit drive shafts. All suspension geometry done using Wishbone.
