But on a serious note - leave that huge body off - take several feet out of the floorpan and sit a Code 130R body on it powered by a 2.0 Turbo. Who cares if it's got a live rear axle. And to keep costs down make it in China.Kinda cool.

The Chinese are coming and will not be stopped. So if they are coming let them come with cheap fun little cars you can toss around on a twisty road, even if they do bounce and wiggle over uneven surfaces.
Hell, that just adds to the fun. We older guys know well what it's like to be 8 or 9 tenths hard into a corner when the live axle jumps sideways over a pothole you didn't see and suddenly you're at 10 tenths with a fist full of opposite lock...
And if you avoided the ditch, you grin all the way home, even if your behind is still puckering a little....
I don't need perfection or extreme performance - I want fun factor. And often that comes from the right kind of deficiencies mixed with the right kind of proficiencies such as RWD and the added control it gives you.
So do it on the next one...I started a thread about that very thing about a year or two ago. It seemed like a good idea to me at the time. So good, I ran it past someone at GM who is a platform architect. He said, forget it, the Wuling architecture would never pass US crash regs.
Pikes Peak. Downhill. Or straight down a coal Kentucky mine, solely within the grip of gravity. Otherwise, probably not.It's... beautiful! Where can I get one? I've been looking for something to do a murder-suicide-by-car in.
Figure one of these could probably take me out AND the entire sfbreh clan if I go fast enough.
