Looks nice. What kind of motor does it use?

01-05-2004, 03:22 PM
its got a 16 valve turbo

Isnt 2 seconds very much!?! How much power do you guess it takes to go down to 9 s, and how much hp is it possible to get out from a 16v at all?

I remember reading about a german mk1 that did high 10 on 1/4 mile with a turbo 16v motor. I guess your would be the fastest rabbit in the world if it can do 9.

its not hard to bring it down 2 second because the car only has minor things done to it. this year a bigger turbo is going in and more motor work so hopefully that will bring it down that far the car does now 11.10 at 345 hp to the wheels with small turbo, cams and management system.

alot bigger the before cant get in too much detail you guys just got to wait till it come's out .

Can't wait! Jack knows his stuff, I'm sure you guys will at least run low 10s if you're set out to do 9s :)
Anyway, there's lugnuts' 16v rocco that ran a 9.95@140ish, that's the fastest vw 16v in the world right now, and it will be faster next season.
