Rail Dune Buggies and other
VW powered applications

When most people think rail dune buggies, they think VW powered machines with similar vintage suspensions. Think about the street-performance possibilities of a lightweight tubular steel frame motivated by a healthy V6 or V8 mounted in one of these tubular steel engine cradles.

Another option is to retain the VW drivetrain, but upgrade the rear suspension using one of the engine cradle options - either the opposed coilover setup or rear coilover struts. The strut-style option is more easily adjusted for your choice in track width.  VW IRS-style axles are required.
