Im not gunning for any records. Just to beat Greg.
It would be great to see some TDI guys racing at some truck events.

Best of luck. I hope you see out your goals.

I find it a little comical that this is exactly what Greg set out to do. Piss people off to spur them into competing. Expanding the performance industry for the TDI.

13.45 is laughable for a stripped out Beetle with N20.

Makes me feel good about 14.2 with a 3500# curb weight.

O.C.

That's what I've been saying jajajaja

Granted his car isn't the best platform. Why he didn't just pick up a golf/jetta and do the same thing is beyond me.

FWIW wasn't Greg doing a mile, not a quarter mile?

He shouldn't have needed N20 to get to 132.445...
I can easily get past that running just B99
no pit crew
no sponsors
couple cases of local microbrew
my 235lb self
& a full interior stuffed with hiking gear, old food, possibly critters too :D

i havnt followed it real close but a stripped out 2200lb car and a 1722 (200-210) should probably be capable of running 12's

and if you dont think 2200 is possible in a mk4 your thinking wrong.
with my back seat in and full interior including ac, ps, egr, stereo, spare etc etc was 2700 on the scales...

back seat and spare 2550
ac, ps, washer fluid, egr, cat, muffler 2470?
rest of interior?
glass (lexan)
wheels (rpf1 in 16 saves you probably 50 lbs total.)
aluminum crash bars
airbags
55 convenience feature worth of wiring
battery? who needs more than a 10lb braile at the strip that save you 40lbs there?

the car could probably come down to 2200lbs without much thought which puts you in the low 13s with just the "basic" 200hp setup...

shed some weight on the suspension
shed some weight in the brakes
dashboard?
aluminum racing bucket.

i mean theres isnt much you do need if the only goal is to hit break 12.00 (which will take quite a bit more power i understand)

yeah i can see that. wheelie bars would solve that.

as odd as it sounds, fwd with wheelie bars, but if you lengthen your effective wheelbase, you drastically cut down on weight transfer.

gutted out, skinnys and slicks with a wheelie bar...
sounds ridiculous but alot of honda guys do it when their having massive traction issues.

then again this is all about 1/4 miles time-slips isnt it?

Shoot them when you see them?
photos im assuming
of tdi's at truck events i think...
not too sure on this one myself

Yup, I'm a freelance editor and photographer and cover many diesel events and I like to see the TDIs there at truck events and I shoot pics of them when I see them. I ran coverage of the 2011 TDIFest in Diesel World magazine and I will likely be covering the TS Outlaw event for the mag once again this year. If there are TDIs running down the track I'll be shooting them!!!:D:D:D

Or... Just put it into a Lotus Elise body.... remove the fender and put 325's in the back, no more traction problems :p

Chris, Did you Shoot the E.D. flame truck down in FL last Feb?
Nope, I did not make it down to that event. I had some major health issues in 2011 and nearly died...therefore, I missed a lot of the events. I'm doing better and will be covering a lot more events this year.

I like the ideas of a RWD TDI too... I really like that little kit car and could love to build one of those!:D

I'm also thinking about putting a Duramax engine in my '67 Camaro! Not that will be a fun to drive diesel and I will probably be able to get 35 MPG or maybe even better out on the highway!!!:eek:
