Ok so I think I have the trans option hammered out. Gonna go with a mega sand 4 speed for rear engine. Hey Fast what's your take on a megasand? Gonna use it as an all around bug. Some off-road/sand/street use. Didn't you use to run a megasand? How do you think it will hold up? Power will be a stock turbo Subaru.

DSrace is using one in his swap over, hes been doing lots of research.  He may even turn loose of the extra one he has?

That's the one I am getting. The rear engine one that he has. Talked to him for about 5 hours. Great fella to shoot the sh!t with and he has a metric ton of knowledge. He is gonna build my front end. Been going over ideas with him about it. I think secretly he wants a Baja Bug. He just doesn't want to commit to the dark side. Maybe he will catch the "Bug". Lol pun intended

Anyone else know anything about mega sand transmissions while we are waiting for Fast to chime in?

loyalty to the American people."

Always the best plan.

Lol. Weather forecast was good the last time I headed that way. It didn't update with freezing temps and possible blizzard like conditions until I was about an hour away from getting there. Nothing screams good ole times like having an electric heater inside your sleeping bag.  rofl

Needless to say that trip did not sell me on playing in the sand. All I could think was "omg what did I get myself into with these crazy fookers" and "these are some dedicated folks right here" even still despite a wheel flying off the trailer, single digit temps, freezing rain, a tent that leaked and did nothing to protect us from the frigid wind, the buggy breaking down, and going on the coldest ride in history with fast, we had a blast. I had to sign the strap of shame when fast towed us back in. But lucky for me I was shivering so badly that you will never be able to read my name. Lmao
