STRUCTURAL AND SAFETY

SALES@specialtyauto.com

Structural:

 

  • Our exclusive custom designed structural tubular chassis not to be confused with a beefed-up VW sub-frame with bolt-on VW components.

 

  • heavy gauge coated stamped correct type steel floor pan - for additional torsional stability of the chassis and road hazard protection

  • We begin construction with all new structural steel not a 30 year old rusted and fatigued VW floor pan.

  • All suspension members are Subaru Impreza, (front and rear control arms,  CV axles, rear shocks)

    Safety:

  • Occupants surrounded by a reinforced welded structural cage

  • passenger compartment separated from gas tank by steel firewall

  • steel reinforced doors

  • Fuel tank mounted low and protected from collision by heavy duty frame members

  • 3 point retractable seat belts anchored to steel structure

  • 4 way hazard lights

  • we don't believe that the battery and its explosive hydrogen gas fumes and arcing potential loose terminal connection should be in the same enclosed compartment as the vented gas tank, its gas fumes, and potential leaks....... ours is not.  

  • heavy gauge steel correct floor for chassis strength and road debris hazard protection - fiberglass floors will give you neither strength nor hazard protection
