Any VW guys here care to chime in?

I was talking to a guy at this off-road/desert pre-runner shop and when he looked at the bottom of my BRAT, he commented about how similar it was to a Baja bug set up.

So if there are parts that are similar couldn't we bolt em onto our soobs?

Next time I go to a PAP i will take a peek underneath a bug and take some pics.

similar layout, I know the bug transaxle pinion gaer is centered so you can flip the ring and run backwards , were the soobie trans pinion is not centered ,
