Thanks, it wasn't cheap but neither was buying 3 piece rims so that I could get the correct offset.

I did feel a little guilty having genuine Porsche wheels modified, I'm over it now

Here in the Netherlands a lot of genuine Porsche rims are massacred for the auto cross (widened and narrowed). And after some beating they will end up in the trashcan.....
So don't feel guilty

I took my Beetle out to Powerplay on the weekend, fitted up the new M&H for a few heat cycles (skids)

Hi

Finally got a dry Wednesday night so I took my bug out to the drags.

Getting used to launching and shifting gears again, I need some improvement.

I was getting some wheel hop which I'm sure caused me to break a drive shaft. I need to tie the motor and trans down a bit better

Its a custom drive shaft, modified 944 with a 930 CV flange welded on. The guy who made them cant do anything for 5 weeks so I'm trying to organise getting one done so that I can run at the VW Nationals Supersprint.

If anybody knows of someone that could help with welding and machining let me know.

Best ET was 11.803 and best MPH 124.29
