I have to assume that's a mini-stock oval track race car? A bit rough but about normal for a oval track car. See my answer to your other post. PM me and include your email address and will try to send you some info on oval racing a VW.

yup its gonna be racing a paved 3/8 mile oval speedway....fab guy just cut off both quarters from my spare shell & grafted the LS one on already...god this guy is gifted...i gotta take updated pics...I have raced VW's on an oval track speedway before,but they were all Mk2 golfs;I dont have any experience with the Mk1 chassis.however I havent been actively racing since 2002...check out this older thread just for circle track VW's...you'll see me & many versions of my #16 Golf.....

I basically need help with the differences between Mk1 & Mk2 chassis setup.one time that I won(with my 85 GTi 1.8L 8v) I lapped a guy driving a '88 240SX.....:D...anyways I will take any help & advice you'll give me...and thank you!
