Description Complete Details
The BEST way to enjoy the shifting experience and low RPM's at higher speeds in a 1949 through 1965 Classic Volkswagen Type 1 Beetle and Karmann Ghia is with a PRObuilt Freeway Flyer Transaxle equipped with *OEM sized Short Axle/Short Spline Axles (SASS). *(It can fit others, see the Complete Details section for more information).

This transaxle is Perfect for the Cruiser application. Key features of this transaxle are 3.88 Ring and Pinion, overdrive 4th, along with new synchros, bearings and seals in a rebuilt SASS 12 volt platform. All transaxles that come from the PRO's are 12 volt and do not come with OIL. The PRO's recommend this oil from LAT or this on Amazon. You will need 3.5 quarts normally.

The PRO's offer a few different transaxle's with different axle lengths. This allows us to fit wheels with different offsets onto cars where as they wouldn't normally fit. So it is recommended you pick out your wheels first, run it by the PRO's to see what axle length makes sense, then choose a Cruiser application, (Freeway Flyer) or Performance application (not racing but more aggressive driving).

I liked how on the orders made list-it was updated and showed the status of the order. Also received called from Pete, to let me know that the order would be ready for pick up the next day. That allowed me to add that to my todo list and go pick it up
