How many would like to see something come together in the way of a full blown race car to compete in the Quick class in Import Drag Racing? You don't really need to be a fan of import drag racing to think it is a good idea, as I think the exposure would do wonders for the VW aftermarket in general.
Okay, now here is the fun part...
How many would be willing to contribute to said car being built? Not soliciting, yet, just getting a feel for the idea. Thinking that a small contrubution would buy a spot on the car for the person's name that made the contribution. It would be the People's Car. I mean, after all, that *is* what Volkswagen means

Anyway, let me know if you think I am crazy, or let me know it you think it is a good idea. I am dead serious about building the car, I am just in the process of finding ways to fund it. Yes, some potential money sponsors are already lined up, but I think this concept would be pretty cool. I just keep picturing a Jazz Blue Golf race car with thousands of small white signitures all over it... It would be pretty sick.
PLEASE don't try to send me any money yet. I want to do this as legit as possible, and square things up with VW Vortex, before I start asking it's members for money.
Like I said, just feeling out the concept.
Fire away. And please be nice to me
Not trying to start a big battle, here. Also, don't try to tell me the pros or cons about building a FWD drag car, or using a MK4 or anything like that. The sport, just like myself, feeds off of people doing things that were once thought impossible... Well, I think anything is possible. I have the resources and the knowledge to get it done. If you want on, lemme know.

Count me in! All I would ask for is a pic of the car taking care of "business" and a close-up of my name then I could say "Yes, I'm part owner!" http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: Unibody MK4 Golf 1.8t FWD drag car... (1.BillyT)

I think it's a great idea. I was watching some import drags on (I think) ESPN last night...basically gutted, rollcaged, monster front tire Hondas pulling 8 and 9 second 1/4 miles. I bet we can get a 'Dub in that range too. Most of them were only nominally "Honda Civics"...kind of like those NASCAR Tauruses.

Billy,
As you know, we will support you 100%. Let me know well in advance what I and FM can do for you... (besides shipping your system
, which is honestly coming...) I'll do whatever I can do to support you.
I've actually thought about doing this... but for rally racing. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Not that I have much pull here on the Vortex but I say DO IT! It's definitely the "shot in the arm" the 1.8T, the GTI/Golf, and VW as a whole needs to be recognized in the import drag racing community.
I'd pitch in what little I have, in return for a pit pass and a "grand tour" of the car when you run it @ Route 66 in Joliet, IL for the Battle of the Imports in late 2002. Whuddaya say?
