Dont we also need a auto trans torque tube assy to install the PG assy in a six speed car ? Total install length remains the same ? Just verifying before I raid the kids college fund !

Like Jay stated, a stock torque tube fits right in. I would recommend either our, or Pfadts, HD drive shaft though.

Great looking parts... But I am poor right now, so I will have something to covet at least.

that torque tamer looks like it could pass as a drive shaft safety loop too. Some tracks still ask for it on these cars.

would this shifter cable work on a built A4?
mine broke and NO ONE has one

Sorry, the set up is for a two speed. If you need a stock A4 cable, we have plenty of them.

Is there any chance you would sell the 15" spindle kit without the brakes. This would drop the price and we could buy used brake calipers and disks off a Camaro and bolt on for a lot less. I asusme the bolt pattern is probably the same? This way you all could make a higher mark-up because you wouldn't have the cost of the brakes included and we could get 15" rims to fit for cheaper as well...

Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeee :-) You would make a killing and more importantly your customers would be happier cause we could afford it even in this recession....

Thanks for considering it...

Sure, I'll sell it without the brakes on it, we just buy them and pass the cost along, so I'll just deduct the cost of the parts.

You will have to do the fitting of whatever brakes you choose yourself though. Keep in mind that the emergency brake is removed with the smaller brake kit, you might be able to install one with whatever brakes you choose, or just install a manual brake lock kit.

Looks like some nice equipment/parts.

Now that I have fast Vette, I might have to consider some of it?
