    Need Help with Double Wishbone Suspension

    Did not find what I am looking for on that site. Some good information, to be sure, just not what I am looking for. Any other suggestions? Thanks and God Bless! Kugel8x57

    Need Help with Double Wishbone Suspension

    Hello Folks! Been a while since I've been able to post... Lots of changes going on with my family right now. Anyway, I think that I want to use a Double Wishbone on the front suspension of my Baja Bug. I am a good welder/fabricator, and I plan to build it myself. I could design it myself...

    Hello Desert Racers

    Also, another interesting connection for me... Some years ago, I went on a training trip to Germany. The company was in a little Dorf (village) name Esslingen. I have always wondered if the Esslinger's family were immigrants from Esslingen. 🙂

    Hello Desert Racers

    Thanks for the input, RH and DS! I appreciate the realistic POV! One question for dirtslinger, though. I don't quite understand having "too much motor for your limited suspension"? Do you mean that the V8 will be able to push the car a lot faster than the suspension can handle? Please...

    Hello Desert Racers

    Creativity and Economy... to do/have something a little bit different and keep the budget in check. I originally was planning on a rear engine car using a 2.0L Ford Pinto engine and a bus transmission using an Esslinger Engineering adapter kit for that arrangement. But as I started adding up the...

    Hello Desert Racers

    Thanks for the reply Class10Dan. However, after reading the SCORE Rules, it looks like I will probably be in Class 2. I will still check out Class 5 forum for some suspension advice and discussion. Many Thanks and God Bless! Kugel

    Hello Desert Racers

    Forum Newbie and Hopeful Desert Racer here. My first car was a 1963 VW Beetle. LOVED that car!! I had big fat tires on it. Stock engine (6V electrical system ☹ - forever having to get people to push me off!) and stock suspension. But ever since then, I have always wanted to build a "Baja...
