      just got the trans back in yesterday! stripped 3rd racing a fast evo9 lets say i lost anyways, dyno'ed at 352whp and 333wtq@15psi (3rd gear pull on the dyno, if it was in 4th gear it would be about 50-60 more torque) ... ran the evo9 @24psi lol



      im sure some people dont like the idea of big power FWD bc of traction problems... but that is where the fun starts 100mph burnouts anyone?

      02-23-2011 05:30 PM #34
      Here is my car MKII GTI Syncro.

      Kinetics stage 3 kit
      green top injectors
      3inch no cat exhaust

      I just finished the car so it isnt perfect yet I still need to figure out what the hell is going on with my clutch and vac problem but other then that the few times I have driven it I must say it is super nasty. I have launched it down the road once with 11psi (which is what I have it set at, dont want to brake it just yet ) There is a ****ty video of me driving it slow through the snow in my fron lawn.

      PA synchro hands down is the best car in this thread so far.

      TIME, MONEY, LABOR! hands down was not a cheap car to build and when do you see Synchro cars in USA? almost never unless your at a car show and that looks to me like a good street car to BLOW everyone's doors in

      none of my friends with big turbo cars have their gears being "ripped apart" vrt's or 1,8t's, only issue is the clutch's lifespan

      it all depends on how you drive your car, but it does happen. so consider your friends lucky so far. Either they take care of their cars or they dont drive them hard enough or have been lucky and didnt hit a dip on the highway yet it high boost Maybe they have sh*t tires and and no LSD so they get wheel spin which is actually good for tranny if you hook up hard and dont snap an axel consider you gears gone

      ask this guy here, he has a nice ride and has broken several o2a gears

      or maybe they just know how to shift, cause I assure you they do not drive their cars gently

      has nothing to do with how you shift.... you could be in 3rd gear pulling hard and the gear could strip. Most of the time happens with you hit a dip or uneven pavement. When this happens the gear has on and off load especially TQ and it's a done deal.

      But I must say out of the few threads I have posted my car on no one has said mine was the nicest on there so far cause I know it doesnt look good but I have thousands of dollars into so far and will be getting thousands more and as far as I look at it this project will never be finished. So it makes me feel good some ppl can respect a nice built car just doesnt look pretty yet.

      But there are some nice as vrt's on here. any of you guys in pa???

      out in the North East where i am we have alot of DIPS in the road... the pavement will be smooth than it will dip quickly basically a bump in the road/dip and that shocks the crap of the transmissions parts. Maybe it's different where you are and have nice roads I dont know... all i know roads in the NE suck

      More than likely caused by driving a very high hp car with "too much lowz", no suspension travel, axles binding from said, no lsd, and/or poor driving skillz. Sure transmissions do just grenade. However there are MANY guys who drive HIGH HP VW's to their fullest potential, and somehow dont have these issues..... Your results may vary
