I have beeen running a Mk 2 for 8 years now, Most of it in ITB but i put it HP and did a few events. I realise the MkV will be a more expensive car to run mainly because of tire wear.I own my own VW repair shop and I work on MK 4s and 5s everyday, so having to repair one doesnt scare me at all. But heres the deal, I might possibly be able to get my hands on an 07 GTI for cheap. Dirt cheap. It can never be titled or registered, and only to be sold as a racecar or a showcar. Ive read thorugh the T3 rules, Im worried about the Cobalt and the SRT-4 . Does anybody run one of these? Are they competetive? How do they hold up under fighting conditions ? Is this a good idea or am I trying to race over my head.
