Hi Thomas,

Nice to see you here!
Was great fun last year running with you guys at Spa-francorchamp. Pity we have to wait another year for it to return.

hi Thomas, nice to have you here!

nice cars and a great site.
I see on one of the cars you run a tension strut on the front suspension, how much of a improvment did you see with this? I'm thinking of going to a compresion strut on the front but have only seen tension struts on the front of the strut front suspension on a beetle.

front suspension
Hello judgie,

sorry my english is not so good to answer you. the front suspension is complet build by me, to drive with tension strut ist much more better than original version. the car is completly with uniball. it drives very famous.

Wow. Amazing car. Air jacks are very cool.

90kph in first gear is mad!

Welcome Thomas.

Very impressive car indeed. is one of my favorite sites and I often use google translator to understand the information presented.

I have questions regarding the front suspension set up of the 1200 Kafers, but that is for another thread.

Thanks for posting pictures of your car.
