Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

I just posted this in the 'concept' thread . . . not a bellytank racer - but 155km/h from 688cc - on three wheels!

Goliath 700-GP Record Car 688cc 1951

At Linas-Montlhéry in France Borgward established 38 world records in the under one-litre class in this Goliath three-wheeled racing car, records which stand to this day. These records were accomplished using a team of extraordinary racing car drivers including Hugo Steiner, who tragically died at Hockenheim when he attempted to improve the records even further. The record car was powered by a highly tuned (not modified) engine of the Goliath 700-GP - a 688cc 2-stroke fuel injected twin everyone could buy in any Goliath showroom. Max speed was 155km/h.

I`m kinda impressed....but I`ve seen a few modded reliant robins / rialtos that have been scarily quick....I saw a speedo reading of over 90 in a mates rialto...and my brothers "pig" would sit "effortlessly" at 75 (speedo reading again) on the motorway......

I say effortlessly....if you put one ear next to a rocker cover of the engine at full revs....and the other out in the wind at 75mph...whilst inhaling burning oil ...that kind of effortlessly..
I see a record for the taking...
