That is what is strange. I am not on the machine that I posted them from. When I get home, I will try to repost and see if that has any better result.

Still seems weird. This machine and my computer are even different OS. Mine is an old Mac and this is a PC

Whatever you did to get that last one up, it worked for me. However, the post from Jan 27 never showed an image at all... still a little blue square.

I want to do another track only VW, but I'm choosing hot street with decent time slips to back it up. I'm so tired of car cruise posers. Lol

Fuel system almost complete and the top engine cover is fitted. Woot!



Yes, a retired educator used what was available to tie down the tank...

Looking good!
If you ever feel you have weight transfer issues at the track. Maybe a type 1 beam is in your future. For starters, find some 90/10 shocks that you can make fit. If you haven't already. There's so much suspension and chassis details that really help at the track. That's what I love about people that claim to have fast street cars. They go to the track and are disappointed.

Bugula, I will probably not need them. I can adjust the nitrogen rear shocks drastically.
V8, I will probably leave it until the entire car gets a new color. Then, who knows...

I wish it we're as light as a bug! I think my transmission would prefer less weight too.

Polished or painted will still look cool. And if you choose the polished look, you'll always have something to occupy your 'spare time.' Have fun at the track!

f fired off tonight. for 10 seconds. Had no boost set up... waste gate was disconnected, throttle was disconnected, fuel pump was disconnected, reg 009 distributor set and n/a timing and an exhaust leak at the j pipe gasket on the 3/4 side. idle was only 700 and jets are not correct.


But if fired right off after priming the pump. That was amazing to me!
