      I live in Oak Lawn, but dont' really race at Illiana (been there a few times). I'm not a big fan of the short track.

      we race at Plymouth, Mottville, Rockford, Jefferson, etc.
      pick up an old rabbit ....they are super light , handle well, and parts are cheap.

      alright ladies and gents. i want to drive a vw next year at a local track in the 4 cyl stock class.

      heres a short list of what i can do


      Engine: (must adhere to the rules)
      engine must match year make model.
      must have stock internals
      stock feuling

      car itself:
      suspension must stay stock
      wheels must be stock.


      any help would be greatly appreciated. im going to get the official rulebook for the track. and for you wondering what track its lebanon valley speedway in eastern upstate ny

      it will be next season, we are thinking about a mk2 gti with a 2.0l 16v. going ot try to do alot of research before starting this venture. the honda kids are saying that vw's dont belong on a dirt track and that all we will do is go backwards against the 9k rpm asian cars.

      get a second generation scirocco (if you can't find an earlier one)....way lighter than a MK2 chassis (200lbs) and the parts were made in the cabriolets' for years afterward so they are cheap and abundent.

      gearing is KEY.... check out the VW Gear Chart that i made up.

      looked good in the heat race.
      how bad did you crash it in the feature?

      looks like there are some squirrels in that class....
