Im building a somewhat odd race car in my humble garage, with a Topolino body........ on a superlow budget. I found a few old pics of cars that has been my inspiration, and i have ended up building a somewhat square frame. It will be no suspension in the rear, and a traditional I-beam with leafspring setup in front. The rear end is from an old Volvo 240, and the trans is from an BMW Next up is trying to set the angles on the rear end and trans/engine. Just wonder what would be the best way to do it... I assume a straight line on the drive shaft itself is the best solution. But i dont want the engine and trans to sit too low in the frame. So, to get the angle i want, i probably need to tilt the engine upwards in front to get it right.... I can probably also mount the rearend on TOP of the frame (seen it done on a few old Altereds), that would make the engine/trans sit more in angle with the frame. However it might interfer with the cage at some point and make it a pain to remove the axle. Or am i way off... Any thoughts?
