Excuse my ignorance, but what is that lump?

BTW, strange to see a split oval with upright lights.

I know it's probably a one piece GRP front. :D

Scooby power! :D

Did you know . . . in 20 years or so of UK VW Drag Racing . . . no-one's managed to run a (backed-up) 'nine' in a floor-panned Type I or Type IV powered Bug?

Unbelievable really . . . but the odds are HEAVILY stacked against a car achieving this . . . the car, driver, track conditions, air temp/density all need to be just right . . .

Luke Theochari ran a 'nine' at North Weald seventeen years ago . . . but failed to back it up . . . then 15 years later Paul Hamilton did the same . . . 9.95 but no 'back up' run

Others have run really low 'tens' . . . but still no-one's managed a backed-up 'nine'

He had alot of problems getting off the line, he broke the beam, but then had trouble getting going... Once he went he was gone! Pulled like a train, caught the other guys up very quickly. Had some major stuff going on in the front of the car too, i was having a nosey while in scrutineering :D

He would of been a contender in Gas if he had managed to get off the line each time, really weird, very frustrating for him no doubts, nice bloke :)

I noticed Roger Crawford ran a 9.9 with a floorpan ghia at the bug-o-rama last weekend again he couldn't back it up.

This is a normally aspirated motor . Shawn Geers also had a new DKRC car out and ran a mid 10 N/A engine as well. No doubt he has his sights on a 9 sec record. His beetle looks the biz because it looks like a cal-looker not a race car.

The thought of a N/A bug/ghia floorpan car running a 9 is amazing I hate to think what sort of R and D and $ is in an engine like that.

Now that's what I call a photo.

So all I have to do is raise my compression and Bob's my uncle :incheek: :D :D

At the moment I'm running 120 over 85 and my wife said I haven't improved my top end for over 10 years. Although she is definately more a 1/4 mile woman than a NASCAR lady. :crazy: :D
