Well guys, another feature article has been posted!

https://www.hotrodhotline.com/node/19997#.Wt-6lm4vyUl

Besides that, I got some big plans going on with the Bug. Lots of changes are taking place. Let me finish up with my first change and I will post up some pictures.

Test picture. Hopefully this works.

I loved watching your bug scream by! Nice to see such a slick looking machine on the road.

Thanks guys! I hope you all enjoy the changes I am making.

Alykat - one of those changes are going to be to the exhaust. It is just too loud. So hopefully by making it a bit quieter, it doesnt kill the tone of the exhaust.

I have to admit that over the decades I have bit by bit toned down the volume of the exhaust on various projects. Now days I look for a sort of sewer pipe rumble. Something that makes your knees shake and gut dance, but makes your ears happy.

After a few weeks of working on the Bug and waiting on parts to show up, I finally got my front air splitter done! It is 100% functional and we will see what it does at my next race.

They are indeed teeth. Well, I consider them more as dentures. Removable when needed.
