      For all the people saying that this is a road racing car and whatever. Keep this in mind: Quoted from BillyT
      "Two days after the Uber Golf, the brought the car back out to Willow to run the Eurotuner GP. Unfotunatley for Hans, there was a real race car there, the Stasis Engineering N/A 2.8 V6 A4. From what we could tell, knowing that the Stasis car was running 1:28s, the Dahlback car was at least 4 seconds slower on the only two hot laps he made that day... "

      OK, this BS has got to stop. Hans was clocked at a 1:11 lap time, which was a full 17 seconds faster than the winning Stasis Engineering Touring Car time of 1:28.

      F1 budgets run well into the millions of dollars, there is no comparison with Dahlback's car , $500,000 is a drop in the hat to an F1 team. Last time I check the climate in Sweden is alot cooler than California in Mid summer, so overheating and lower boost levels shouldn't surprise anyone. 17 seconds is alot of time, thats 17 seconds ususally "off line" and being "quite rough" ( i.e. sliding) on the car. The car has laided down around 800 hp on a dyno, then the dyno broke, like it or not it happened, and it was on video. Yeah, it had four wide tires on it, and has absolutly no trouble breaking traction with those FOUR wide tires throughout the length of a 1/4 mile drag strip, again, like it or not it has happened. Just because some people haven't seen something with their own eyes does not mean it cannot be, if I won the heavyweight championship of the world in Japan, does that mean I have to come to America and do it again, I don't think so. The car has trouble drag racing, so what, it dominates the road course, whether its a .9 margin or 17sec margin, winning is winning. Something tells me that if I clock a time 17 seconds faster than anyone else while driving like a maniac I probably don't have an issue with suspension. There is also video of the car runnig alot more than three laps so that trailer queen comment don't hold up. Oh yeah, lets start adding things up for weight, 5 cylinder cast iron block, 20V head, Quattro transmission, Macpherson struts and uprights x4, four wide-ass wheels and tires, two intercoolers, one big turbo on one heavy manifold, oil lines running the entire lenght of the car with a mack truck filter, lets no forget the oil also, fuel tank, big radiator assemblu at the rear of the car, large coolant lines with coolant, fuel which is three times the weight of water, four axles, sway bars, partial tube frame, shall I keep going??? I can certainly see 3000 pounds.

      All that is fine,but it STILL doesn't change the fact that it ran 14.4@119 in a "magazine competition".........when the green light drops the BS stops.............if you knew you were competing in a publicized competition,you better put up or shut up.........compared to Billy-T's little A2,the Dahlback car is def. not THE "UberGolf"........hypothetical situation here; say Billy T or others on here with much less $$ spent rolled up next to Dahlbacks car at a stoplight and had a little "American style"racing,and one of us smoked him,woulod he jump out of the car and say,"you may have beat me ,but I spent $500,000 on this car,and it is a engineering "tour-de-force" .............that would still not change the fact that it is slower than a lot of smaller budget stateside cars.........arew you also saying that if I went to Switzerland,I would be running 11's? I'm buying a ticket!

    6. 06-21-2004 05:46 PM #146
      I'm saying that Sweden doesn's see 115 degree days, I'm saying that he and the car had a lap time that was 17, READ, 17 seconds faster than anyone else, the day of the ubergolf wan't the day for Dahlback, oh well, Dubwars was, not knocking Billy T. at all, but he would not have had a chance that day, again, oh well. I'm saying what some people fail to acknowledge, here a scenario for you, Billy T's. results from that same competition are not legit anywhere out side of California. You and I both know that is total Bulls**t, but that is how we treat someone else, seems to me like some have double standards. I'm sorry that the two recent times the car has come here it did not Dyno or drag well, it did however dyno 800+ and that is a fact you cannot change no matter how much you try. The last time the car was here it ran 12 seconds in the quarter, so are we now saying that the car has less power, no, the car had problems, just like Billy T. had problems. I've seen top fuel dragsters run 7 second quarter miles, they normally run 4-5, does that now mean that it doesn't make the advertised power, i tususally means the team had a problem whether it was traction (but that can't be the reason, those things have tires 50 inches tall and 30+ inches wide) or driver error, I don't know about you but Hans has never called me up and said that his car was dead nuts reliable. I do not think its fair to judge ANY car on only two apperances which were not wintnessed by alot of critics. I cannot change anything that has taken place, poor e.t.'s, low dynos, but no one can change any of the other facts about the car, you can choose to ignore them, hence ignorance, or distort them however you want but you cannot change them.

      No one will doubt you if you offer proof. And coming in here spouting out with no proof will bring doubt. You had to know that. So when can I check out your car? Just want to meet up and maybe film some highway pulls.

      lol call me Mr. Tangent. My post was way off topic. I just had to chime in to defend steve. Steve is a very helpfull nice guy that has benefited the 1.8T community. I fealt i need to tell Mr. 11 seconds that his 80lb pit bull was NOT anything to brag about, and his comments where not necessary.

      why on gods green earth did you brag about a killer dog ? that is weak man , for the record if dog atacted a police dog(considered a police officer in all aspects btw) i doubt it is still alive cause the cop probley shot it and then though about doing the same to you....


      man this monkey crap has to end !!!

      also the whole rsi nonsense this is how i feel, 1) the car is not a "drag car" 2) hans is not a drag driver or profesional (duh) 3 we all have bad days behind the wheel
      IMO this car is a statment of what could be done and what did get done(built) shure there are faster cars this is just the far spectrum of customosing

      also i was talking to a freind aboput this and drag racing he said at some point the more power (hp/tqe) you have the slower you go
      so look if the car made 1200 or 800 or 528 it maters little to me the car is very cool none the less


    20. 06-22-2004 09:15 AM #160
      ahhahaha xdavid....
      dood your so awesome....
      and if you did run 11.4@124, you would infact have the quickest mk4...
      i was trying to be nice about things...
      but i guess your up set a cop shot your dog, and you want to spout off about your dead dog...
      i mean like stated above, if your dog attacked a police officer it would have been shot on the spot...
      here in the hampton roads area a Pit bull was shot and killed for being out of its owners control, roaming around with out a leash...
      the damn dog was shot on the spot infront of the owner...
      so i could only imagine how many holes your dog had in its head for attacking another police officer (a police dog is considered to be a police officer).

      so xdavid, enough childs play.

      You are correct,5 speed would be 02J,either way 02A,J,M whatever,is a completely different design than 020and does not have spring loaded CV flanges,thereby cannot "use" a 80% kit......that is what confirmed TOTAL BS for me........his claiming he had a "80% kit on a 02 Jetta" sorry Xdavid,I am not as stupid as I look

      You might want to check the mirror again... All 02As and 02Js have spring loaded flanges.


      not saying the guy is saying a word of truth or that the 80% kit would work in his tranmission, but it certainly could work because the flanges are spring loaded. In fact the only thing he has going for him is he is in GA and could possibly be testing one for peloquin for the 02J.


    22. 06-22-2004 02:26 PM #162
      Have you ever worked on a VW tranny before?There are no "springs"in ANY 02A,M,J whatever..............there are "spring clips" that retain the CV flanges............on the 020 there are actual "springs" that you have to compress before you install a circlip for CV flange retention..........with a wider brass spacer it puts more compression on these springs and gives it less slip on the diff itself,hence the "80%" kit,HOW would that function in a 02A style tranny?.........I should know I rebuild/repair VW transmissions,as well as install LSD ............I guess I schooled you AGAIN!

    23. 06-22-2004 04:00 PM #163
      hmmm... I have seen the springs Chris is talking about. They were on the first O2J tranny that I put a diff into... had to ditch them when the diff was installed. Not sure about the O2A, though...

      Are you serious? You are proud of that? What a waste, anyone who feels the need to fight dogs and or cannot control/restraint their dogs around other dogs and people should be ashamed.

      I am a proud owner of three American Bulldogs... most of my friends have APBT's and Stafforshire's as well as a few Rottwielers. It just absolutly pisses me off to no end when I see people cross to the other side of the street, pull their dog away or pick up their kid when they see us walking them.

      Why do they do that?

      They do that because of people like you that have no control .... or the control that you do have is used in the worst way, bread to fight. That alone ended up giving some of the best and most loyal dogs in the world a terrible terrible name. It kills me when I to go to the SPCA and see these dogs not able to get a second chance because people are scared to death of them, they end up getting put down.

      Dogs are not responsable for their actions, their owners are. From start to finish you are their greatest influence.

      Sorry to get off topic here, but what he posted is just wrong.

      I fell ya Bill. I am one of those people that goes to the other side of the street, or even turns around when I see one of those dogs and thier owners walking towards me and my dogs... Just not even worth the risk. Sorry it is that way, but like you said, guys like that make it hard to feel any different about it.

      Along that note, there is a little 12 year old girl that walks a pit around my neighborhood. As far as I am concerend, she might as well be holding a shot gun, with no trigger, that goes off when it feels like it...
