944 Ebrake adapters

944 Rear emergency brake clip.

This kit included everything you need to adapt 944 emergency brake assembly to your stock beetle handbrake cable. They are compatible with either the 944NA or 944T brakes. The clips are CAD designed and laser cut for a perfect fit.

With these clips you will never have to fuss with custom made cables, or crimp-on cable ends that can break with use. By using stock beetle cables you insure a strong quality cable that is easily available.

Also included are extensions that marry the stock beetle handbrake cable end to the 944 tubular pieces. You will need to use the 944 steel tube (piece about 100mm long). See here for more details regarding 944 rear brake conversions.

The kit includes 2 ‘swan’ ebrake clips and 2 extensions, both finished in a durable black coating.

If you don’t have the stock 944 tube, order part VDE-010-036 which includes one piece aluminum tubes and swans for the early 944NA backingplate.

Kit’s for the 944 aluminum arms contain only the 2 swan clips. The stock beetle cable end can be slightly filed down to fit directly into the aluminum arm.

Narrow beams

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

Vdub Engineering manufactures these beams from all new material. The beams use strong one piece drawn over mandrel steel tubing, with steel uprights. The beams are fully jig welded on CNC machined fixtures to insure exacting tolerances. Why mess around with ‘cut and shut’ stock beams when you can have a brand new beam for a competitive price.

Beams are supplied with adjusters installed, and can be manufactured in any width you wish (wider or narrower than stock). Urethane bushings are installed for long life. The beam has proper body mounts and a steering stabilizer mount all threaded for stock VW metric bolts. A drill jig is included with each beam to allow you to drill and narrow your torsion springs with common hand tools. As an added bonus, the beam is about 25% lighter than stock.

Priced at $C300 ( no shock towers as pictured), or $c350 for shock

towers (upto 4″ narrow). Includes complete beam with adjusters and urethane bushings, finished in a durable wrinkle finish.

Currently available for Link Pin Type 1’s. Ball joint beams are in the works and you can pre-order for a 10% discount.

Vdub Engineering can also supply new heavy duty tie-rods to complement your beam at $C50/pr.
