VW Transaxles, 091, 002 and Type 1

Many applications in off-road and sand don't need the strength and cost of a racing transaxle.  VW transaxles usually handle up to 300HP in most cases with lighter cars, and the VW 091 transaxle costs less money than a Mendeola.  091 Bus transaxles have been in sandrails and off-road cars for years running reliably and successful.

If you're considering using a VW Transaxle, call us.  A lot of things need to be considered when choosing a transaxle, such as car weight, tire size, engine type, horsepower, and your driving style. 

Besides the most popular 091 transaxle, we also specialize in 002, and Type 1 transaxles for those of you that have smaller cars.  We have all the parts to put together a custom setup to be stronger than stock VW transaxle.  All rebuilds have critical parts magniflux inspection to insure the integrity of each component.  Satisfaction is our primary goal, we must build our transaxles to last so you'll come back the next time you need help.  We recommend the use of high quality Weddle gears for VW rebuilds. Make sure you know what's going into your next rebuild, that can save you money in the long run.
