exclusive custom designed structural tubular chassis – not to be
confused with a beefed-up VW sub-frame with bolt-on VW components.
gauge coated stamped 356A steel floor pan - for additional torsional stability of the
chassis and road hazard protection
construction with all new
structural steel not a
30 year old rusted and fatigued VW floor pan.
suspension members are Subaru Legacy, (control arms, CV axles, front and rear
surrounded by a reinforced welded structural cage
compartment separated from gas tank by steel firewall
protected from collision by
heavy duty frame members
we don't believe that the battery and its explosive hydrogen gas fumes and
potential loose terminal connection arcing should be in the same
non ventilated enclosed compartment as the gas tank, its vented gas fumes, and potential
leaks..... ours is not.
heavy gauge steel 356A floor for chassis strength and road debris hazard protection
- fiberglass floors will give you neither strength nor hazard protection
