Arrow Would an AWD Redline be possible?

Would it be possible to modify the AWD transmission in the Vue to work on the Redline? I just think the idea of an AWD Redline would be awesome!

Yeah I thought it might be cool to try to Frankenstein a Redline like this. Ive got a lead on a totaled Vue Redline so I could get the AWD tranny pretty easily. Im just wondering how extensive the modification would be to make this work

youde have to change alot of stuff: suspension componets, axles, tranny (if it even bolts up to the RL) custom driveshaft! and a few other things! this would be awesome just give GM a few years i bet you they will AWD the cobalt soon enough

Umm, you'd need to cut a hole through the middle of the car so the driveshaft can go through.

What do you think the Ion platform is based of off?

If you want AWD, get a Vue. With the time and money wasted on an AWD setup, a really fast RL could be had.

+1

If you are wanting to get rid of the wheel hop, invest in some poly control arm bushings and engine and tranny mounts. Then add some drage radials. It will save you a ton of time and money.

Ryan we looked into this and figured out the feasability and it wasn't from a Vue that we looked at getting the parts..instead we looked at the AWD Saab, but decided against it because of all the shit that would need to be done.

I copy and paste RWD rocks into every thread.
