Re: 11 second A2 (grabbit)

I flew from denver to NJ to see the show this year, but i did not watch any drags, i just peeped cars, this video makes me wish that i had watched more drags! (we figured that we can see drags anywhere and we would rather mingle with the east coast dubs since it is not often that we get to go out there)

Re: 11 second A2 (grabbit)

if i remember right thats joel. he can usually be found at cecil county dragway. as far as i know its a turbo intercooled 8V i think its a G60 block running TEC-2. and a stock tranny with quaiffe sorry i dont know the code. right now i think he's fighting snapped halfshafts, thats about all i can think of off the top of my head

nice guy, i met him at the maplegrove show where is was running the 1/8th mile faster then a lot of the drag buggies.
its a 2L 8v aba motor, custom short tube intake manifold, kinda looks like a trw carb manifold.
tec-2, but im not sure of the turbo he is running, i know he said somewhere around 20+psi of boost. huge front mount on it. bogart drag wheels and slicks. plexi-windows, wheelie bars, coilovers, and a completly gutted interior. has the laptop there to control the fuel managment in between runs. very nice setup. i want that big on 2L 8v motors, but after i saw that i was convienced of them. if i ever get another rabbit i will throw one of those in it and turbo it, its cheaper then tracking downa 10 year old g60 motor and trying to make that turbo. around here 2L 8v shortblocks can be had for around 5 bills.
seeing that i have a 91 gli 2L 16v jetta, if i even mention an engine swap i would git all kinds of feedback from those who say "if u gonna swap, do it to an 8v, leave the 16v's 16v's". ehh, o well, i just drive my jitta.

Dumb question: Is something like that streetable?
