Not really GL

Hi! This is my 73 AutoX car
I started my VW life with a 70 a Baja. The 73 was supposed to be a temporary car while my Baja got painted. I was only going to drive the 73 for about a month and sell it when the Baja was finished. That was over 3 years ago and the Baja is still not done. (But thatís another story)

Here are the stats:
W110 cam
Kads Ė soon to be a turbocharged 40IDF

4 wheel disk brakes- just EMPIs, but they work
Droped spindles
ĺ in sway bars front and rear

I AutoX the car in both Phoenix and Tucson. I am classed in SSM (Super Street Modified). Iím currently running mid pack.

Nice car! What kind of tires are you running, do you have any rubbing problems?

Also, do you have any oil starvation problems in the corners?

Right now I'm running Kumos 195/50/15 in the front and 205/65/15 in the rear. They don't rub, But I did have to pull the fenters out a little. When I get some money, I plan on running 205/50/15 all the was around.

I over fill the engine a little, so I haven't had any starvation problems. The next engine will have a windage tray.

Tires and driving skill will make the biggest difference. 205/50 15 sizes are easy to find and very cheap. You should be able to find good R comp tires (semi slicks) for around 100 or so. If you haven't done so already find a better seat, something that keeps you in one place :)

I haven't found them for less that $160, but I'd love some R comps. I'll have to see how my sponsorships pan out.

As far as seats, I have some custom ones on order, just waiting for them to be finished.

A man once asked, "If you have hot naked women in one hand and a tub of jelly in the other, which do you choose?"

And the wise master (Joey Tribbiani) replied, "Put your hands together!"

You can co-drive AND build your car.;)
