    NEW!!! From Penhall Fabrication is a four wheel drive based on our Diablo Class 1 car. The cassis features some new characteristics as well as a newly designed front suspension geometry to accommodate the four wheel feature. Also new is the fact that the car will feature a truck body. This innovative project began with a simple idea... Marking a Class 1 into a four wheel drive. Anyone watching the 2010 Dakar can see the advantage that would bring. Penhall is dedicated to being in the fore front of the off road racing industry and is expanding into the global market. With our recent Baja 1000 win in the Class 1 category Penhall Fabrication is continuing to move forward with visionary new ideas and projects. For more information about this car Contacted Penhall Fabrication or continue to follow the cars progression on this thread...more to come.

    Sexy piece of tubing you got right there!! What are the expected travel numbers out of the front and what are you going to use for a transfer case? Is it going to be AWD or will u be able to put it in and out of 4wd. Front hubs and axles, cvs? Looks awesome by the way i cant wait to see the progress!

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Awesome, I love people pushing to do different things to get that extra edge. Shannon C is also building a 4wd Class 1.... so this is starting to look like a trend!
