Lada Moscow has really stepped up their game! I think this might fit in the spider??

I think it might fit looking at it..... although it is pretty different from the original Abarth IRS.....

I'm surprised after all that engineering they chose to use a 124 rear diff. not the most rugged thing.

I see a lot of interest here in the IRS, but I'd love to know if the R/P kit is applicable to the Spider.

Sedan is pretty much same platform. Main issue would be any difference from fit of the Lada engine vs TC.

On the R&P there's a different exhaust downpipe (to get around the rack), and the steering shaft needed some considerable changes.... I'd be interested in seeing how it turned out.... I've still got a 75$ dodge omni rack and integrale tie rod ends sitting around awaiting experimentation!
