MENDEOLA True Performance Front Suspension   Price: $3295
What do the owners of Mendeola Suspension kits think? Here is a couple for you guys and gals.

This is some of Tom_Kathleen (used name) have posted:

As we posted in the 40 page thread - we have the full Mendeola suspension on a Manxter. It rides better, steers better and tracks better than it ever did with the VW suspension. Well worth the cost to us. Tom

One point I seldom see mentioned about A-arm front suspensions (when they are done right like the Mendeola) is the reduced bump steer. That is one reason why all the hot rodders like the Mustang II / Pinto front suspensions. Proper placement of the rack & pinion and equal length tie rods make for a nice ride and our sterring effort went way down also. Tom


We have to give Kevin & the chassis engineers at Mendeola some "props". We drove the Manxter for the 1st time today with the S2 chassis. I was expecting it to ride like a truck because of all the handing claims. It rides softer and nicer than the VW chassis ever did. The steering is super easy, especially the low speed stuff which has always been a problem with this car. We have a few more things to sort out, but this thing is great. We had it aligned, and will try the performance tests later. Thanks Kevin! Tom


and here is what Mikebock the owner of the SPEEDWELL Oval wrote:

I will feel free to chime in here. My 2 cents, Kevin completed the Speedwell Oval about a year ago. The 6 Magazine Covers were sweet indeed but in all honesty it was built to drive. Although, there were natural adjustments needed along the way it would be difficult to deny the performance of the chassis under my 57 Oval Ragtop. i would encourage anyone to take Kevin up on his offer of a ride in one of his chassis. I believe my original ride made me wet my pants Embarassed Needless to say, I purchased the chassis, the car was completed and I have been having a lot of fun with it on weekends. Shoot me a PM should you wish to no more.

With well over 80 suspension kits being put on and on cars right now it is safe to say that Perfromance Suspension is now a new standard to our beloved VW's. Like back in the 60's with Performance engine up grades. We are proud to be the first to bring True Handling Performance to the air cooled VW world.

Do you want to make them watch your tail lights even through the turns? Do the back country twisty roads call you?
Have that bad ass old school look with modern performance and ride quality?
Imagine being able to go around turns at higher speeds and not being afraid you'll end up in the wrong lane or up on the curb on the other side of the street.
Well here's your chance. From the same company that made it possible to put huge horse power into a VW style gear box without blowing it apart with their high performance line of transaxles. Mendeola now offers our "True Performance chassis" kits for anything type one based (bugs,ghias,super beetles, and kit cars)

With over a dozen of our S2 Manxters on the road and track tested we are offering the BEST chassis kits on the market. Our S2, rear engined Subaru 6 cylinder cars pulled over 1.04 G's on the skid pad. That is more then a NEW Porsche mid engine car. Besides that we are shipping kits all over the world and we're on our 5th productions run of another 20 kits. So if you realy want the real deal this is it.

For True Performance there is NO substitute!
Sure our kit is weld in, but once you have it on your not going to want to take it off. Besides once it is welded in there are no bolts to come loose or break. The average guy can install this kit in four hours.

Our kits comes complete from spindle to spindle ready to be installed.
Parts include:
1) Mendeola Bulk head assembly
2) Mendeola Full set of upper and lower A-arms Powder coated
3) Fox Racing shoxs and Hypercoil springs
4) Volkswagen Rack and pinion complete with tie rods
5) Mendeola Zero Scrub spindles
6) Mendeola sway bar
7) German Ball joints installed on arms
8) All bushings, and hardware

!!!!!! Just add brakes and wheels and your ready to roll !!!!

Front ends are available for ball joint or link pin front ends (all type one models) We are NOW also offering our front ends for SUPER BEETLE 1302/1303 models

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BREAKING NEWS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You asked for them and now we have them, full 3" narrowed A-arm front ends, for those of you who want to tuck the wheels in a bit. Note: this take away some of the performance, but is is still far better preforming then a beam and rides 100% better then a beam.

Also available is our Re-engineered bulkhead assembly so that our front ends can be installed with the BODY ON!!!! Now the only reason to not install this super bad upgrade is ?????????????????????????????????

This is the suspension to have and once you drive one, you'll never want to go bouncing down the road in a lowered Stock VW again.....

Mendeola's True track rear kit also available...... See add titled Mendeola's True track rear
