Did you guys see this? Fenn’s treasure has been found.
“Forrest has confirmed that the treasure has been found. “It was under a canopy of stars in the lush, forested vegetation of the Rocky Mountains and had not moved from the spot where I hid it more than 10 years ago. I do not know the person who found it, but the poem in my book led him to the precise spot. I congratulate the thousands of people who participated in the search and hope they will continue to be drawn by the promise of other discoveries. So the search is over. Look for more information and photos in the coming days” – Forrest”John JonesModeratorJune 8, 2020 at 11:46 amPost count: 13640
Wow… finally… but lots of skeptics question it… looks like there are a few law suits over it right now… one guy says it was between Silverton and Ouray on the million dollar highway… wow…

First race went well. I managed to set a new Rally 2WD class course record on Saturday. Sunday race day had me just over a second off pace of a BMW M3 though but to my defense the driver had a European accent. After winning every Colorado Hill Climb Association race in the motorcycle class for the past five years I had to take a bride’s maid, beat by .04 of a second, but all smiles. It felt so great to get back out racing and the new to me four wheel thing definitely has my attention. The bug really impressed a lot of experienced car racers. I almost didn’t have the heart to tell them that other than the subi 2.5 liter, Empi front disc brakes, and sway bars it is totally stock 🙂
Thanks to all on here when helped me put this ol car back together.alykatParticipantJune 11, 2020 at 6:27 amPost count: 1003
Oh HELL YES ! Congrats Travis. Looks like the bug was handling pretty well ?NewboldParticipantJune 11, 2020 at 8:58 amPost count: 177
Yeah, I thought it handled great. Of course I have nothing to compare it to other than a motorbike. I am still using the hand brake to help set it up for corners as the foot brake over powers the front traction limit. I probably should have put disc brakes on the rear instead of the front. I tried a cheap proportioning valve but it was sensitive often causing very vague pedal feel. I plugged one of the front master cylinder lines and ran a splitter off of the other front line to both wheels and that seems to work ok now. I probably need to invest in a double master cylinder so I can adjust bias front to rear or maybe find some front tires that bite better. Anyone have other cheap fix ideas?FranzParticipantJune 11, 2020 at 1:18 pmPost count: 5403
Install front wheel cylinders (larger diameter) in the rear brakes. But probably wont be enough.
The prop valve is on the T-d front brake circuit?NewboldParticipantJune 11, 2020 at 1:35 pmPost count: 177
Thats a good idea Franz, I think I even have a set laying around.
It was but I took it off. I think I was fighting air leaks with all the added connections but I might put it back on with some new lines and play with it some more.alykatParticipantJune 11, 2020 at 2:59 pmPost count: 1003
A very old friend passed away some time back and his sister and brother in law (also old friend) are working on settling his estate. I was invited over yesterday to take a look around his boneyard to see what is going to be for sale. Well over 150 vehicles and although I didn’t count looks like 12 to 15 VWs. Three verts, several bugs and several squarebacks. Also this air cooled VW snow machine. If anyone might be interested in buying it,or any of the other stuff, let me know and I’ll put you in touch.
