Well, I finally got my race bug back together this week! It's been almost three years since the last time it ran! Shocked

I put it on the dyno yesterday, up at the college, and here is a video one of my students did...

Also, here is a link to a page on my site with a bit more info and some other pics and dyno pulls...

Thanks! It's been a real challenge to get back to this level with all of the things life has thrown my way the last several years!

If all goes well, we may even have a race track running by the time I have the car ready!

We're trying very hard to get it going..... keep your ears open, there may be a friday night drag comming up. I'll see if I can get any information. If so, it might be cool to get a few VW's up there to play around a bit!

"rumor" has it that there "may" be something coming up at the end of the month.

The organization in question is going through the hoops now to get it going.

So I hear anyway.

I wish! I have had so many other things to take care of, I haven't had a chance to work on the car again yet.

If I can get the EFI swap done, get it tuned and a couple of other things taken care of, I would love to make the last race in Sept.

Cool
