Thanks for the reminder Bob!

I read a lot of exchanges with UK builders and that very same issue (or solution). :)

I really should turn off the incoming mail alarm I have set in the shop! I can't resist coming to this website! LOL!

if you are going to widen the torsion bars, the why not add the extra length to the drivers side, this will move the original steering box to a much more central position on the beam.

this will allow the short track rod to be lengthened reducing the bump steer and allowing the beetle steering box to be used.

Hey Richard, you might want to have a look and see what some of the Formula Vee guys do with their h beams. Have a look at some of the Jacers in Australia. I had mine converted from the stock steering box to steering rack but can't remember the brand.
