      I thought you couldn't trailer a car unless it had 2 axles...anyone know about this? It would make my life easier if I could do it with a single axle trailer haha.

      Also the build looks like it has come along nicely. Love the trans raise. I keep thinking I'm going to just to an IRS conversion.

      Not sure. I have several times. The good part is the towing or trailer laws are never really enforced, whatever they are. Most officers are looking for and studied the traffic violation laws. I once towed my 22' camper for 2 years nearly every weekend in the winter and twice a month in the summer all over the place without a listens plate even on it. Was never even registered. Was that smart hell no did anyone ever bother me nope..

      I do know a lot of states do not require trailer plates. My state does but there's a couple bordering states that do not so it's kinda easy to pull it off like it's the in-laws or something. I'm more worried about DOT verses standard PoPo.

      honestly that depends on your state law. we have to 2 axle it here...unless it's a tow dolly.

      So glad you did that trans raise. I don't mind neg. camber but it looks so much better without it. My hands have fallen asleep going through this tthread. It's turning out nicely. I'm very jealous.


      Is it creepy if I asked where you're from, I swear I've seen your bug driving around..
