Looks neat. With the zuk case you'll definately have gearing options. How are you planning to mate the trans. to the t-case? Would you just turn the zuk case around backward and run it that way to the honda stuff. The honda stuff rotates the other way right? Sounds like a Low CG machine. Light weight up top with some mid weight axles. Looks like a winner. Post some more pictures, please.

yup. sami tcase turned around

no pictures yet for the time being, aside from the tcase and engine which is just lying around. ill post pictures as soon i start the tube bending

my worry is the low crawl ratio, 3.285 (1st gear)X4.259 (H22 Final Drive)x2.1(sami tcase - low)x4.875(r&p ratio)=143.231, is that good or bad?

thaks

Holy crap there wont be a lack of horse power with that motor. And if the stock hp isnt enough the after market options are limitless.
