I've certainly had a blast with it for years. I may pass it on someday.

I was just thinking about this car and it's history. I got it from John in 2006 or 2007 I think. I made some changes in 2007-2008. I installed a different tranny and engine. The tranny came from Mike at Precision Engineered Performance in NC. The engine came from Jason at Paradise Motorsports. It is a 2276. I have been running the combo since then. The tranny is probably geared better for a NA car but I love it. I run through the gears as fast as I can and let 4th pull. It runs 6.60's in the 1/8th all day. And that is at 14-15 pounds of boost. Could it handle more? Yes. I've had it at 25 pounds by accident. It stood straight up off the line. But I like to keep it conservative because it doesn't blow through the clutch or break axles. Or anything else. I still have the same white Empi shocks on the rear that John installed when he built the car. I am considering changing those soon to some double adjustable models. The car goes straight and launches perfect on street tires every time. Whatever John did works. Again I thank him for building this car and allowing me to have it when he met his goal of 11.90 with it.

That must have been ahelluva surprise when you left the line..

Still having fun in this car! I won the Aircooled Streetcar Class at VW Drag Night in July. The car was working!

I had Saturday off this weekend so I made some plans to run down to Florida and race with some other VW people at their new track. We had over 15 VWs show up to race including Ken Fisher and his crazy turbo car! I made 6-7 passes against other VWs or solo. At the end of the night I was about to load up. I thought that we should drum up one V8 race so the large crowd could see a VW race something else. This Camaro agreed. I noticed the 502 on the front fender as I went to get my car.

Here's the video:

I had so much fun! The crowd apparently loved it. Thanks again John!

Testing and tuning last night. I let Carl leave and then had to chase him down. Barely caught him!

USE finals this weekend.

Car was running good as usual. I wasn't pushing it hard or winding it up too much. Shifting at 6200!
