My son won his bracket in his GL 1303

Hi

Just got back from an all VW 1/8th drag weekend, had to drive about 900ks each way to get there but we won our bracket.

Its a 74 x 90.5=1904cc with some stock valve V Force heads, twin 40 mm Dells, Berg sump etc

Video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jl2JzcSzJ0w

Hi

Thanks, my son is only 17 and hes over the moon, last year at the same event he ran with an almost stock 1600, 1904cc is much more fun.

Hes busy studying for his final year 12 exams now.

Steve

Hi

My bug will be off the road for a while so rather that have have two dead Beetles in garage I've been getting his bug back on the road, I lent him my wheels until he sorts out his own wheels. My bug crashed into my sons bug last year when I didn't put the handbrake on enough. We've fitted the same Aero mudguards as are on my car. Amazingly his car doesn't have the usual offset body like lots of Beetles have where one wheel is close to mudguard edge and the other is a fair bit off.

Steve
