How about you guys? anybody else see this??

Kinda funny? If they are casting their own parts, why isn't the "CB" cast in the part as well? I can't see the "EMPI" but it is suspicious that the part is stamped!

Better then most and I would consider it a Rat Rod. However the body is still ugly and as it still looks like a rabbit.
Seems like they could have used another body or clipped the roof off. Either way I am glad I saw it and its cool that even some goofball ricers are being influenced by rods and such.

That could look better using a Pinto, Pacer or Gremlin. Hell even a Maverick or one of those early Civics or Celicas. Basically rounded edges and some style not square boxy and kinda cheesy.

One Thing I always hate is when you search craigslist and see all sorts of lame stuff like 80's mustangs and S10s listed as Hot Rods when they should be called Not Rods.

Now that was interesting. Looks like an old Chevy front axle and a unique take on front suspension. I think that it's supposed to still look like a rabbit. Not something I'd build, but still cool and an individule expression

Like the concept and luv the rabbit and GTI. Just think it wouldda been a hare cooler if it had an aircooled powerplant in the front somehow. (pun intended) ...

Saw that one on facebook, local artist/pin striper Jeff Allison saw it at a car show, snapped a pic of it, and is now designing 3 differnt watercooled VW concept cars off the same idea. one being the rabbit sports truck. If he ever compleats them I'll try to post them.


hes pretty good at his concepts as information isnt the part lacking.

JiI, such posts should be marked as "Off Topic", as most of us here aren't into men.



P.S. Was that uploaded from your personal stash?

On a slightly less homosexual note...

I'm needing to turn an output shaft 90*. Essentially, I need a ring and pinion. Only needs to handle around 80HP, will be tied to the output shaft of a FWD transmission, in order to drive a chain sprocket. Trouble is, I need the ratio to be 1:1, or very close.

Anyone know of such an animal in stock vehicles that could be salvaged? Final drive in motorcycles? R&P from a RWD car?

Help?

I guess I could use the final drive from a motorcycle, then offset that ratio with the size of my sprockets on the chain drive...

How about a final drive from an old Yamaha shafty? They're plentyful and cheap. I've got two or three extra hanging about if you need measurements and the ratio.

I wanted to do the too. I was going to take a FWD eng and trans, turn it 90*, put it mid-engine and go all wheel drive. But everyone I talked to said 1:1 dif would blow up.

1:1 would blow up? I guess any of 'em would blow up if loaded too heavy for their beef... Sounds like fishy logic to me. Chain AWD. Now THAT sounds interesting!

V8, that'd be bad ass if you could get that ratio for me. If I can find a shaft drive from a motorcycle with a ratio close to 1:1, I could completely bypass the chain drive.

If it was close to 1:1, maybe I could go with a really large diameter tire & wheel combo to offset it.

Okay, both the rear drives from a 80s 650 Maxim and a 80's 750 Seca (I have them here) are the same. For every two point nine turns of the shaft, the wheel splines spin once, so you're looking at roughly 3 to 1. The Maxim ran a smaller diameter rear wheel (16") vs the 18" of the Seca which further lowered the ratio for that bike. The 900 and 1100, which I don't have in my collection (and seemed to run in about the same RPM range when i rode them), but have worked on, looked to be about the same outer dimension as the above and knowing how mfgs like to keep costs down, I wouldn't be surprised if they all ran the same ratio and internals. Hope this helps. Also, the spider which plugs into the rear output spline, bolts to the rear wheel and I have a spare or three, if you're in need...this would be a freebie.

V8, thanks a ton man. That really helps to know some ratios. Thanks also for the offer of parts.

Unfortunately it appears that almost all motorcycle final drives have around a 3:1 ratio... If I used one of these, I'd have to run a 7 foot outer diameter tire.

If I use a shaft drive, I would absolutely have to use a chain and sprockets to offset the ratio.

I could look into replacing the ring in the final drive with another pinion of the same diameter to make it 1:1, but that would require more knowledge than I currently have to make it work properly. It'd require a completely custom housing, beside the issue of getting the gears to mesh properly. Too much for this guy.
