      Welcome. For the cars to be close, they have to run the same RPM. Does the VW rev to 8000rpm?

    4. FWIW , 1985- 1987 A2 hubs will break**

      Just swapped out a couple of Chumpcar hubs. The early A2 wil break for sure. If your car has 17mm ball joint studs it also has the small hubs.
      87 and later seem to last about 5000% longer. ...

      Add some Dynamic Rear Steer< DRS and it will turn a lot better. MY book tells about how to get it right.
      It is all about reducing the outer front tire loading.
