The pics in the add show parts of pages of I think a VW Speed issue.
I would be interested to know what the actual track performance is of all these top parts together. Will we ever find out?
When cars are that nice, who will actually use them for what they are build?
Just pondering, carry on pls :-)

Good eye, it is for porsche indeed. However I like the look of the chopped tunnel, still don't see the why.

The CAE site says they make a shifter for porsche tranny in beetle with beetle "ground plate" as well:

That might be a different shifter than the one used.IIRC it has something to do with the height and throw of the shiftrod also

I agree. Love the car, it has got some great features, but I don't like the way the car sits. If the body was over the wheels a bit more it would be spot on.

I agree with you Dave, personal bug bear of mine is when tyres sit outside the width of the body, even worse when the tyres have a lot of stretch on them. Seems to be all the rage with the early water-cooled lot though, I think they end up looking like roller skates..

A Top Notch car at a sealing price!
Only 3 thins I would change on this Machine would be the wheels, the gauges and the NACA ducts.
Remove NACA ducts, use Remmele style ones.
Would change those Autometer for a more unique set up: Stack,Stack, custom Porsche and the likes.
A set of 3 piece wheels with better stance would make it Epic!
But do not get me wrong If that car were near me I would be all over it!!!

...This car is killing me.

Skid plates and stage two on the 1302, or start looking for a 1303. Must...stop...dreaming.

When I was spending some more time at the toilet last night (...) I dove into the magazine rack and whattayouknow: It turns out I actually have that very VW Speed issue where this monster is featured!
Yes, it IS an awesome car!
