      If your going to do that I would suggest swapping out that trans then. I don't think that will hold all that power for long.

      Its is auto so im not sure how much power they can take but its still just a plan, first is to make it derivable again, then lower it

      Sorry guys, didnt get to make it out wed as i had to work. Im hopin this week. Just got the car back yesterday and it turns out it was the aux. water pump (as i figured). My only problem now is the RF brake seems to hold a bit and it drags a long the rotor and gets really hot and ect. Put the car in neutral and you cant even push the car so that's obv. a problem. Problem is, my buddy didn't give me the piece to take off my the rims..and i don't have one that size..so does anyone have one i could borrow? if not i'll just bring it back to the shop monday. Pic below to get an idea of what size i need

      I hope that some of our local air-cooled squadron get out to join in the meets and share the V-Dub experience.... we have some hard core V-dubbers in the 1432 Squadron.

      My Huron supercar conversion is close to complete and I am just beginning a new project with a 73 Beetle i just picked up...gotta get it slammed and some cosmetics sorted and then see about an engine transplant...aparently Subaru STI engine transplants have been done and it would turn the car into something outrageous....my style... strongly considering it.

      on your calipers is a piston of sorts that pushes the brake pads to the rotor. That part could be blown and is causing the brakes to just sit in place and not move forward/back properly. I'd investigate more. Air in the lines would be fixed by bleeding the brakes.

      Yeah, we should all be arriving between 8-9. I can't make it until 830ish, but some of the other guys are there earlier. 4x4 mode is acceptable, for now..
      I'm also doing my coilovers this weekend!
