Reply to "Narrowed rear IRS..."

Yes, our new speedster chassis already is the same as the coupe form the front suspension to the area of the rear torsion bar.  A-arm front suspension, QA-1 coilovers and rack and pinion steering.  The speedster then utilizes either stock Porsche aluminum trailing arms, stock VW trailing arms, or narrowed VW trailing arms.

We've been building this chassis since the end of 2019, however every one of them was an export car in RHD for other countries.  The very first LHD built for the US in in upholstery currently.  No that it is any different, just had a ton of overseas orders to fill. (there are a few differences that require custom parts, but thats another story).

Narrowed rear trailing arms is our standard spec for the Speedster since it allows for stock wheels and larger tires.  Stock arms or Porsche arms require custom wheels...

We kept the same body size/shape/dimension and lowered the floor just over 1.5"

I currently have builds being fit with reversed R&P Subaru 5 speeds, stock VW 4 speeds and Porsche 915 gearboxes.  While I would do a Berg 5 speed if someone desired, I'd rather see the car with a 901 or 915, but that is just my personal taste...
