Last year at SEMA I met the guys from Mendeola Transaxles and they really seemed like they knew what they were doing and seemed to have a nice product. Has anybody ever used or had expierence with this brand. I am looking at the MD4-2D, though it is still minus CV's, hubs and a bunch of other stuff, it seems like a decent deal. What do you guys think? I have heard of this Powerhouse place but do they have a web site? or any way I can get further information?

Wow! There's some out of the box thinking! I don't have an opinion but I'd sure like to hear more about the project.

Yup, have an HD4 in a Buckshot X5 chassis with a twin squirreled LS6. Nice trans and it takes a beating...... that's for sure.

Well that is good to hear! This is hopefully going to find it's way into a 65 corvair. The project has been in the planning stages for about 3 years now but we got held up when it came to transaxels. Thanks for the imput. Phillip

Here's another box, don't know how it compares.

That's a sand rail chassis right? What kind of adaptor/bellhousing did it take to mount the LS1 to the Mendeola?

Mendeola has bell housings to fit GenI, Gen II and Gen III and now they also have an SBII bellhousing available.

I just heard from someone that they don't offer a posi in their 4spd units, is this true?? If so, that could seriously change my mind.
