hi there, ive been seein this site a a guest for a few days, and i couldn t find the answer i was looking for.....

say i have this unmodified bug, (dont know what year but i think i would be a type 1 [dont have it yet]) and i will use it for driving around my ranch, to and from the city (part of it is highway), and it would be my first car. i want its ground clearance, ive seen a few pictures were the tires are tilted inwards.....is there a way to avoid that? is it cheap? if not, about how much?


ive been a life long fan of bajas bugs, and ive seen some pretty hot, and they didnt seem to have a lot of money in them

oh yeah, and where i live, in the rainy season, it gets REALLY wet, lots of large puddles....

The Bajas with excessive camber are swingaxle transaxles. The trick is to use taller tires nd limit the upward travel to keep the negative camber down. The best way is to use a IRS pan and a early T-2 transaxle. Buy Building Bajas ands Buggies. It is in the AZBAJA store.
As is with it raised up a little to install 235 70 15 tires and skid plated it will go most anywhere.

Just buy it from the AZBAJA's site. The site gets a little bit of the money to keep it running.

That line is paronoid delusions from to much BAJA.

If your car is 69 or later it will have Independant Rear Suspension (IRS) and the tire tilting shouldnt be an issue- Pre 1969 cars had swing axle and lowering or raising would aftect the tilting of the rear tires....

That's a joke- AzBaja (the user) is the owner/founder of this site. He's just kidding around.
