Why use the Speedster Clinic Chassis?
For many years’ speedster/coupe recreations have been based on a traditional
shortened VW chassis. This popular method uses beetle floors with a bolt on sub
frame to fit the body.
Chassis is different!
We start with a
beetle donor floor pan, remove the standard floors and replace the frame-head
with a tubular adjustable frame head.
We then add all new floor sections, outer sub chassis and fixed one-piece CAD
designed bulkhead, this is then welded into an all new box section outer
chassis added to this are laser cut CNC bent sill sections that make for a
super stiff chassis. Our completed chassis includes, seat belt mounts,
Speedster Clinic super heating ducting for foot well and windscreen, and
integral seat mounts.
There are many advantages to the Speedster Clinic chassis, this is down to the
design and construction, our super stiff chassis maximizes space this then
caters for the tallest drivers in complete comfort.
With the short wheelbase of a speedster/coupe (300mm shorter than standard
Beetle) We build integral seat base mounts that are moved back and more
centrally mounted compared to those on a traditional shortened VW chassis,
this, combined with our all new floors and outer sills make for much stiffer
chassis. Our increased cabin size and safer stronger chassis make for a more
enhanced driving experience.
YOU CAN'T USE A STANDARD VW STERRING BOX SETUP WITH OUR CHASSIS, YOU MUST EITHER FIT YOUR OWN STEERING RACK OR USE OUR UPGRADED RACK KIT.
THE CHASSIS AND SELECTED BODY WILL COME AS A MONOCOQUE CHASSIS WITH THE BODY BONDED TO THE CHASSIS.
