Brat < XT6 Frame Swap
Posted 05 June 2005 - 12:39 PM
Here is a crazy one for ya
Has anyone thought about or heard of swapping the XT6 frame under the body of a Brat?
Has it or can it be done? I know there would be A LOT of cutting and welding.
One crazy project!

What would be required? Would it be ridiculous? Am I crazy to even think of this? I know people have done crazier swaps!

For the front of the car, you will need to change: Struts, lower control arms, spindles, brakes (calipers, rotors), hubs, and tie rod ends.
For the rear, you will need: Backing plates, hubs, and rotors.

what do you need that for?
i am not the hardest core off roader , but i do like to go as fast as i can when i am in 4 wheel.and let me tell you it is not that easy to lose your center in one of these things.even on grades that have hardcore angles it proves difficult.so why i ask, would you want to go and do something like this?

And the one about the lift, It was more or less an idea I figure the XT6 has a more stable setup. That coupled with the light weight of the brat it would be even better. Like I said an idea.

When you are planing all those fancy sub systems also factor in how you are going to fit a Twin Turbo ER27 into the engine bay of a Brat. An NA ER27 barely fits into a hatchback. Placement of two turbos under there will have to be clever.
