Yes I do. If you talk to Simon there nicely he will do "specials" with no drop for the Nova. Mine is the 3rd one of the specials

Just had a re-look at that front end and the wishbone are a dead ringer for the ones on our GS Moon XYKD 260 buggies, about 70 each.

Not saying they ARE, just very similar.

It looks like it could be offered as a kit that you could just put in place of the stock components, then just weld them in place. Kind of a modular add on.
But Im sure they wouldnt do that, and good luck finding anyone willing to touch it with a ten foot pole.
I just tried to get ahold of the local subaru dealership, and wasnt even allowed to talk to a mechanic. I was sent to an "advisor" who only wanted to sell me crap.
I hate calling up the dealership and looking for answer from people that know less than I do.
Most mechanics nowadays cant even look up an motor, or parts without a VIN number.... Its reallt getting pathetic....

Do you have a link peter? It might be worth checking into...

Interesting. Wasn't what I last heard. Then again, money talks, and at that price range, it talks loudly.

So........if they do specials, and this is the third one they've done, then they must have made up cad files/templates/jigs? You see, there's a mob here in Sydney that are licensed or a Red9Design branch...

I'm not so sure they would class the no drop version as a finished product yet. The company I am using to fit it had to correct a few things to get it to for the chassis properly, which I accepted as it was done as a "special"

At closer examination I am curious as to how well this will work.
The OEM VW front suspension sets the wheels far to the rear of the mounting point of the front beam. This suspension (at least from this perspective) loooks like it could put the wheels too far forward. It doesnt appear to set the wheels to the rear enough to fit in a stock location.
But then again so do the mendeola, red nine, and eyeball engineering front ends too.

On another note, I got a response email asking for my specific questions and I replied, now again its a waiting game for an answer.

I also found this little gem while searching online...

Index of /Covin/Technical-Research

The cad/cam work on the chassis and suspension is of high interest.

Look what I found!


Might be of use to some wanting a standard disk brake conversion....
