Went searching for a 4 seater so would have something for the kids to price around in.

Anyways, ended up buying a 4 seater Beeline Cobra (I think). Has a 3 rib, believe the motor is stock, with a weber progressive carb. Looks front heavy, but it actually isn't.

Last pic is in Racefreak J77's garage for alittle maintenance and a couple upgrades.

Went to adjust the torsion Sunday, and upon pulling off the trailing arms, discovered the drivers side was cracked from one side to the other. Good thing I had a set....

Maybe someone on here can provide some insight. Took the rear suspension apart to replace the arms. The drivers side stub axle will not come out of the spindle/hub. Make a long story short, while using a big press, the spindle/hub broke. Now I need to find another, but have no clue what it might have come off of. It is just a spindle with the splines on the inside, and the wheel studs. No drum or rotor. The rotor is a slip on, similar to most cars. Any thoughts on what to look for?

The most common setup that I know of is type 3 hubs turned down a bit to fit Porsche 914 rotors. That being said, my buggy had some other slip on rotor when I bought it.

After looking at your picture, I'm sure that you have the 914 rotors.
