      Yeah US. and yes we are running the Scirocco brakes. In our case we have an issue on some right turns where the let front is unloaded we are spinning the tire. It especially happens on uphill...

      I would imagine theres just bolts that hold them on, so I can't see why they wouldn't work but .... it is VW so you never know.

      Would kill for a used Quaife for this thing, $1399 for a new one...

      I was hoping to unbolt the cups from my old transmissions and replace the ones on the 012 with them. I think the main problems will be the back half of the trans looks physically bigger, and also...

      WTB 012 Quaife LSD

      Title says it all, looking for a Quaife LSD for a FWD 012 transmission. Thanks!

      As an update I was able to find 2 012 Transmissions and a shift linkage that I will be procuring this weekend. Its a start!

      I thought about that however I'm not brave enough to take this thing apart myself (and trust it going back together right) and the one local transmission guy who specialized in these things told me...

      Most of the transmissions we broke were PSA's, however this one was a 9Q. The first PSA we broke years ago had an input shaft failure, It did last 7 races but the car had far less horsepower. This...

      I wish I had more documented from the build it was broken up between me and 2 other guys and it was basically 10+ weekends of insanity. Right now we make more than enough horsepower, but a 16V head...

      Yeah that sounds like a better idea, speaking with a teammate he agreed, would be more work to make the mechanical work than to use a brand new universal hydraulic setup. I've been able to find a...

      This sounds like a good plan, especially if I can get an LSD for the trans which would make it a good upgrade. Originally we considered the iMohr diff which is $1800 for a trans that blows every few...

      I've talked to them about this before, no idea why we keep eating them and they don't. This last Quantum trans lasted 5 races, and only because we overfill it with Redline which is similar to what...
    12. Using a Transmission other than a Fox one

      And other than a Quantum/Audi 4000/etc. We have now blown our 7th transmission. I have resolved that these fox transmissions cannot handle racing, and not only that have gotten tremendously rare. ...

      Upgraded cooling

      So one issue we had with the ABA race fox this year is the cooling system, the radiator (on a hot day)is just not big enough and the engine overheats. I have heard of using an Audi 4000 5 cyl...

      Done both 3A and ABA swap on our race car.

      3A with the Fox head (ours is 93 so we needed to switch) was noticeably more powerful, which is good. You need to take off a lot of brackets and...

      Running a 9Q in the race car now and its identical, no hammering involved to install. Just bought a 2P (I think) that a friend is picking up for me, and it also looks identical, I doubt there will...

      WTB known working 9Q or 2P transmission(s)

      We are out of spares and have only 1 transmission for the race fox. I need at least 1 spare and would prefer a 9Q or 2P (and preferably within distance I can pick up)
    17. Whats your location, transmissions are 5 speeds...

      Whats your location, transmissions are 5 speeds right? If its within pick up distance I am interested.

      Lemons Guy here, that Cage would not pass tech, rear stays are of the wrong angle, door bars are not proper. That said, looks serviceable, could probably fix it to pass.

      The manifold from an Audi 80 fits exactly, not sure about the 90 but I'd bet its probably the same. The downpipe probably won't fit, but you can use it to have one made. Theres a company that makes...
