Well what can I say, this is gonna be awsome. You fitting the engine in the front then? I'd guessed you were gonna rear mount the whole unit same as you did with the bug. 4wd will be cool though :)

Just spotted this, I was reading the first page thinking 'that's pretty damned cool, but it's not the madness I've come to expect from split eye rose...' 4WD tho, that's more like it:D
