Who do you guys like to use for rebuilt performance transaxles? Rancho, Wright, who else? Long is out of business. I want to stay with some place who actually builds them in house.

Most in this section build their own. Where are you located? I would research builders in your area. That way, if you have a question, or ever an issue, it's easier to deal with. If you can't find anyone local, buy a HotVW's and check out some different sources. The samba has a nice feedback section you could research as well.
