I, for one, am looking forward to checking out your car at the reunion event tomorrow, Greg. I've been curious about it for awhile now so I'm excited to see it in person.

Best regards,

I can’t get a response but I’m ready to buy. I’ve called and emailed. Would love to move forward. If anyone has, please let me know. Thank you.

Has anyone else had trouble with the customer service at Windrush (WEVO)? It has been unbelievably difficult to arrange a simple phone call with someone there who has technical knowledge about their 5 speed.

It seems the owner has a strong aversion, even a phobia?, to talking on the phone.

He is too busy engineering and building wonderful stuff for our cars. Hayden is awsome!

OK, good news! If Jim gives him a recommendation, that does it.

Hi Edwin
Most technical answers can be given to you by any transmission builder that is familiar with 911/914 transmissions. The adaptation of the swing axle diff issues will only be relevant to the builder who does the job. IMHO the choice of the swing axle is not as good as the 911 conversions that Rod does with IRS. Since Hayden does not do complete units you must choose a real transmission builder who is able to do proper CWP setups and has access to axles fulcrum plates etc and can provide a good 901 core.
