      I hope to shake things up, but after 2010, I was the only thing shook up. Let's hope for some serious improvement this year.

      Ha, it just means the setup and car as it existed is retired. Many drivers are still racing, just not those cars. Like me, three times or so.

      Not sure about anyone else but I think those two cars from Brazil that were just added shook it pretty good; that 12.13 on street radials (not DR’s!!!) is badass. Full race engine or not I think that is pretty damn cool all things considered. There are still one or two more cars floating around that I just cannot pin down and haven’t really tried to get further details. Soon though...

      Here’s what I want to see happen this season; the top 50 list to have a 12.99 bump spot.

      You’ve got two cars now so I expect to see double the amount of results being posted.

      That would sure beat going 12.80’s over and over and over.

      Totally, your car has been holding down for years and not many other 8v’s have come along since then.

      Yes, this is exactly what it means.

      That 12.13 is pretty badass. Any more details on the car?

      I'd love to see a 12.99 bump as well but I think it is going to take a couple cars from outside the U.S. to make it happen unless a bunch of new cars get built this winter.

      Or we can all just trade up and put the same cars with different drivers on the list... kind of like some of it is now.

      Just for the hell of it here are the active cars that have the potential...

      Two cars on the main list:
      Joe Pendergest's Truck - 13.07
      Edward Kriel's Golf - 13.09

      Two cars from the sub lists:
      Waleed Bassadien's Golf - 13.18
      Ruben Wright's Golf - 13.3

      Wild Cards:
      Joe Pendergest's new project
      The Corbitts might have a car
      Never rule out New Jersey
      Sam (Maxcharger?) 13.2's

      I know for a fact there was a white Gol from Brazil running mid-high 12’s but all I have is video.
      I just need to go back and revisit that whole dragster Brazil site at some point.

      I also should make one more attempt and getting a solid answer for ABD’s race truck.

      Like I said I'd love to see it happen. The more quick cars the better. I didn't consider cars on the bottom of the list moving up as when I took a quick glance it seemed like most of them were retired or not active in a while.

      Would be nice to see a solid answer on ABD's truck finally.

      Kurtis seems to think he's getting the yellow car to run some numbers this year. Hopefully.

      I'll take a stab at it in the gti as soon as tracks open. Then the Scirocco...8v powar!

      Thanks for the vote of confidence Billy. I hope to move up the list, but we still need more new cars on the list, that's why I'm building the Rabbit for my girlfriend. We'll see how that turns out . The truck should come back very, very strong , but we all know how that goes. I'm not one to make build threads but here is the Rabbit today almost ready for the engine. It should be very light .

      That is what I like to hear. That rabbit looks clean bvillelounge.

      It is more about going out and having fun than it is getting on the list I just see the list as a good way to keep track of the progress of NA VW's. I also think it is a good motivator. I just want tto see more vw's drag racing period and would love it if some of them were all motor.

      No it isnt all about the list but to set a goal every year and get it is a great feeling. So this year my goal is to have fun and to get on the list.

      It's about to happen, my pickup is running and sounds very good, my rabbit also sounds great. My girlfriend made some passes last night in her jetta to get warmed up. Stay tuned.
