Re: converting to rwd

I have a rear wheel drive Cinquecento Sporting on my drive right now if anyone is interested.

Re: converting to rwd

I would say all you have to is replicate the mounting point on to a axle not say will handle brilliant but for some things like this van I'd say it's perfect

Re: converting to rwd

Axle is the easy part, I'm more curious as to how you intend to get drive from the engine to the axle.

Of course, you could just stick a V8 behind the front seats.

Ford's answer to a short-nosed van was the Essex V4 engine.

Anything else that would fit longitudnally under a Eurovan bonnet?

Oh-kay you will need a lightweight rear wheel drive gearbox. Mazda RX8's are cheap, robust and plentiful with an adapter plate. Many are already available to fit various engines to the RX8 box...

An RX8 gearbox with 230bhp of RX8 engine bolted to the front would be even more fun.

How about this one.

If the engine is toast you can keep the gearbox and sell off the parts.

Or spend a bit more money and get all you will ever need to build a very different kit car

Re: converting to rwd

The original question was in 2010, so I'm guessing it was just a fantasy and never got off the ground.

Still a great talking point though. Anyone for that RX8 jobbie?
