German Race Bug

Hello Friends,

i want to show you my race bug, me and also 2 friends drive with our bugs on racecircuits we drive in an austrian racefield called www.histo-cup.at. Also you can take a look at our homepage www.boxergasse.com. In this winter we installed air jacks in the car. Also we put new transmission gears in the porsche 915 gear box the first gear will be now till 90 km/h at 7500 rpm. The engine is an typ4 2,8l OHC engine with 270PS.

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.

Grusse,
Walter

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.

Welcome Thomas.

Very impressive car indeed. Boxergasse.com 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.

Sandeep
