      i would suggest the svda sometime in the future. i didnt want to believe that it could make so much difference, but wwwwooooo buddy does it make things so much easier. dont have to worry about timing in advance time, just need a 6 dollar timing light at set static at 7.5 to 10 degrees(dont forget ever motor has its own sweet spot due to wear and some previous yayhoo rebuilding a 40 year old car).

      I got paid the other day so I went ahead and bought a svda dist. I wanted to be able to drive her, but I'll just wait a handful more of days. I'll keep that in mind. Cheers.

      My svda dist. just showed up. I've been reading around and am pretty confused. I get how everything besides my question. Do I need a different coil if I'm replacing the 009 the PO had in it? Any input helps. Thanksss

      should be able to use the same coil. the svda uses the same points and condenser as the 009….less that coil isn't making enough spark.

      Been noticing at idle the car shakes a bunch. But as soon as you accelerate it goes away. The advance is set right, the carburetor is mildly adjusted. Any ideas. I thought it was a timming problem, but that all seems good.

      mine are in horrible need of being replaced so at idle the thing looks like it gonna shake it self out of the car, but after i give it a little gas the torque of the motor pins it into place. does it pop out any gears when you get on it, that is another symptom of a tranny mount going.

      It had done it one time. But it hasn't happened recently. Shifts pretty smooth actually

      Steering wheel doesn't have as much slop. Go figure.


      anyways, got a pair of adjustable struts, see what kind of damage I can do to my Sun Beetle. I've been reading other super threads and I need to get on making a skid plate for my control arms. And I'm debating weather or not to cut out my spare tire are and weld it higher so my tie rods don't bump it. Still don't know If i want to go that low.

      Another thing, bought an OG padded steering wheel. trying to get the inside all back to it's orignial feel. Wood grain dash, the shift knob, sun beetle emblem. All that shiz. Wish me luck on finding all that stuff.. haaha

      basic, but what I'm going for. Color is obviously off.

    14. 08-09-2012 12:36 AM #39
      Wanted to get some white wall tires. Anyone have suggestions on size. Wanted a higher profile tire. might just stay with 165, but i'm not set

    15. 08-13-2012 03:15 PM #40
      Got my adjustable struts and lowering springs today, bbout to see how low my super can go, who cares about practicality.

    16. 08-14-2012 01:39 AM #41





      took these right after. It's settled some, the tire is just below the fender. Don't think anyy lower would be very smart. some smaller tires will do the trick




      Am i "cool" now that I have camber on my super beetle?

      I wish she got more love, (or hate). I know no one likes Supers on the tex but opinions would be cool.

      Sweet Super beetle man, personally i hate negative camber, riding on your axles or arms aint for me, and i drive a mk4. i wanna do a bagged super, but i dont think the OEM design is much good for going low, do u find you have a lot of understeer ??

    22. 08-19-2012 12:10 PM #47
      I was planning on ordering the lowered sway bar n chit from Topline, but they went on vacation or something like that It was not my intentions to go this long with the camber iin front, I don;t like it much either. I haven't noticed any understeer it feels a lot more controled. On the bagged super topic though, you would have to cut the sh!t out of it to get the bags to fit properly. It'd be a cool thing to do but lot of work.There was a semi thread on here where guy did it, it looks really good, but lots of cutting.

      I apreciate the good vibe, even if you said I Fing hate your Super i'd still be happy. I love hearing opinions on my car.

      they are not all the way down. On the adjustable strut I can go down 6 more clicks, which is like 3 inches I believe. I went down two, so it's probably a good 2 inches from stock (with lowering springs). I want to see what another click would be and how badly I would be rubbing fenders.
