    Thread: Lugnuts designed dogbox RUNS!~

    1. 03-24-2012 08:16 PM #1
      so, i finally got to test the dogbox Kevin designed the gears for. i know the method isnt VWKotex approved, but whatever. DILLIGAF? i ran the car up on the new lift, with all four corners supported to relieve the suspension of any droop.

      this was the first tests of the gearbox after Joey (simon-says) and i built it. and i have to say i CANT F-ING WAIT TO ACTUALLY RUN IT!

      these shifts were without clutch, lifting throttle a little.

      Don, you will be in the loop for when i make it out there for sure.

      and this was also done without the boost piping even on the car..... we may do some left-foot brake boost logging before we go to dyno with it.

      and dont hate on the Skullies (the "Hammer" pants) ya'll know you got something just like them. its lazy day weekend here. and flip-flops or slippers, too!

      i gotta say i really cant wait to drive it this season! its gonna be sofaking badass!
