    So the adapter plate is what the wheels will mount to.. Which is a 5x205 lug pattern. So that limits you to the VW style wheels. I'm wanting to do a black DOT approved wheel with some offset in the wheel and can't find one that suits me in that lug pattern. Are ther different adapter plates or for the micro stub set up or am I missing something?

    So, what cars come with 24 spline hubs to fit those stub axles? I would much rather buy some less expensive hub units off eBay. It's not like I'm putting 10,000 a year on a buggy...

    Great post. I am looking for the right micro stub set up for my design and this information was very useful.

    Decided to go with the F150 CVs for smaller vehicle width while maintaining same travel.

    I'm planning to use the intrepid hub kit from RickS, trying to figure out the microstub.

    Anyone try to use the rzeppa joint from the intrepid? Would that work? I'm not sure if it's plunging or fixed, or if it would be strong enough. I know Rick uses a spacer between the microstub and intrepid bearing, but I don't know if the stock intrepid parts use a spacer as well.

    Pretty sure it won't accept the 930 type axles.

    Another side note I actually had to take an int. hub to the press and flare the bearing tighter. I tried torquing with a big breaker to no avail

    Thanks for the info JG. I plan to research F150 parts as well, maybe make my own aluminum wheel adapter to go from Ford to the VW 205mm pattern but offset the wheel mounting surface to move the rim inboard, help reduce the CV angles.

    Just buy the intrepid hub from RickS. He has with the chevy pattern and can use the ready avail chevy 5 to vw wide 5. F150 cv/stub, 930 axle, and a 930 inner cv. BAM! Done.

    Carl, Are you running the F150cv/stub with a non-plunging inner 930? I read that you can run this setup with up to 1/4" plunge.

    If running outboard brakes, you won't find an off the shelf rotor hat that will fit over the F-150 hub. I would not suggest using a F-150 rotor either since they weigh a metric ton. For the F-150 rezeppa setup you really only have 2 options; intrepid hub with a spline spacer or a F-150 hub with a cut down hub flange (if running outboard brakes) and redrilled for 5x4.75"
