      He could always weld in solid metal bars instead of struts or just ride the bump stops. I'm sure that would cost less than Racelands :thumbup:

      Anyway, everyone knows racelands will ride like crap. Some people even report tabs breaking off for the swaybar endlinks. Honestly, what can you...

      I'd go single mass every time just to avoid any potential DM faults. I've looked on ebay for Phaeton FWs, they aren't all that plentiful.

      I figured there had to be some reason why its not widely used. Of all the parts required for the swap, this is the one that I think purchasing from 034 makes a lot of sense.

      Its certainly easier, engines are probably easier to find etc. But more turbos == more expensive problems and that engine is also really not all that service friendly. I'd want the 3.6 VR to keep it...

      The only thing I like a little more about the S4 01e is the taller 6th gear for highway driving. Its mostly me just being nit picky and wanting to think through every part of the build since I'd want...

      How much did that 3.6L cost you? if you don't mind me asking of course. I have been playing around with a VR swap in the B5 chassis and FSI seems like an interesting challenge...

      Yeah, even if a cart handle got pinched between two cars, the cart would bend a whole hell of a lot before making a mark like that. I'd say its vandalism.

      I was considering swapping over to a B6 30V 01e transmission but comparing the Speed/RPM of the gearing there isn't much a benefit to be had. the 2.8 5spd would be the lowest cost solution for sure.

      I was thinking of a similar swap into a facelift A4. However, an S4 is the better candidate since it has a 6 spd tranny. Swapping the 6spd into the A4 isn't cheap since you need the rear end and all...

      You do realize that even the ST is based off an ecobox hatch, right? Mild tweaks to what already exists is expected. These look nice, not needlessly aggressive, easy to read.
