Mendeola main cases are cast from pure A-356 aircraft aluminum
alloy, then heat treated to T-6 condition. Mendeola's castings are poured from
one of the west coast's best foundries and are unmatched in quality, strength
and beauty. The unique look of the Mendeola transaxle case is recognizable
from far away as a sign of true racing heritage with the generous use of
reinforcement ribs for rigidity and strength.
