    hmm. won’t this be very nose heavy? since the engine now will come way to the front

    maybe maybe not wont know until i try it :) the driveshafts are in the same position as a standard mk2, all of the cast iron section of the gearbox is behind the shafts hence right back in the tunnel and it still has enough room in the front for a rallye cooler and rad, this is one of the reasons why i stuck with the 20v 4 pot, also you can see the prop drop to the floor how much shorter it to the standard syncro prop, so the engine isnt that much further forward yet more central because i`ve used equal length shafts, surprisingly unlike the audi a4s and passat shafts which are 20mm difference in length, i`m using all standard parts, hubs, driveshafts, steering rack and wishbones,
