    Thread: Back in the Day TOP DAWGS need to return

      shop built or not. enthusiast or short term scenester making a splash. a nice car is a nice car. thats why the show field exists. top dawg is best of the best (yes, open to debate every year, i understand...) but if its money and time thrown at the car, then so be it. if you dont have the money or the time to get a car into the top, get it in the show field and compete there. thats why theres so many classes for so many cars. you cant compare the two different builds really.

      Truth be told on both accounts.

      It is to much to ask to exclude shop cars from individual builds, not all of us are created equal. I for one don't know much about mechanical work. Some pay to get the work done some get the work done themselves either way your own time and money is being put in. And how is a shop built car not personal. You still chose what parts go on your car and how you want it done.

      piss and moan.... ****ing people are never happy. Hand build your car to bang with "shop cars" or build your "shop car" to bang with the best self built cars or gtfo. A nice car is a nice car dosent matter if mommy and daddys money built it, flipping birds built it, working your ass off and paying someone buit it, or if you cashed in your check on the 1st of the month and built it. Someone put in that work.

      The ones that pay a shop to build their car are (most of the time) the ones who are the most arrogant. They can't tell you specs of the car just the parts on it. And half the time they don't know that lol. There's nothing wrong with getting some stuff done at a shop. Some stuff just can't be done at home. My point is.....Don't talk about your shop built car like you built it.

      I guess I don't know enough, but I liked the blue 20th.

      I'm also not mechanically inclined enough to build a car...so I'm a "bought not built" girl. I hope to be in Top Dawg at some point.

      dont get it twisted .. the blue 20th was pretty much flawless .. i stared off into space into the bay for a few minutes .. almost got lost ..literally everything has been touched on that car and replaced with a better bit.. just a few things about it didnt quite make sense .. hopefully he will bring it back next year and this time it will be running mint and he can drive it in.

      I personally think if the car cant be driven normally regardless of it being trailerd there or not, it shouldnt be in top dawg. These are suppose to be the best of the best cars, how is a car that doesnt run or barely runs better than any car that runs like a top regardless of its wheels, chrome, polished, plated, body work, interior or w.e else is done. If it isnt running like a top its not complete and a not complete car should not be in a best of the best competition becuase its not the best.

      Ehhhh flawless is really pushing it. fouckhest already pointed out a ton of stuff that wasn't up to snuff with it a few posts up and the fit and finish was weak for something with that much work in it. Pretty sure it was trailered around the last time I saw it at a show a few years ago so I doubt that'll change?

      lol! it was in, what i would call one of the worst TD's ever, the last year the show was at the track(year the audi w/vr6t in it, but had fake splits)...but the 20th had electrical tape wound around the engine harness where it went into the rain tray....

      taken off of the h2o website "Top Dawg Participants are required to drive their car to the area designated. "

      so i guess if the car doesnt run .. you cant compete .. but i guess this car runs .. just not well.. Mr. Atwood, calling Mr. Atwood .. sounds like someone could need your assistance

      i was curious about the vibrant clamp off the compressor housing though.. does this thing run a TIP with a MAF or is it mafless?

      I just wanted to stop by and say this;

      I am absolutely besides myself with pride and honor to have been chosen for this year's Top Dawg, let alone to actually place. It has to be one of the most wonderfully humbling milestones in my life so far. But what's even more special to me has been all the great people I've had the chance to meet, gain insight from, talk with, learn from, and just shoot the **** with over the past 2 years I've had the car. You see, that's my real award - having the car be a catalyst to other more important things in life like friendship.

      And as far as my car is concerned and the whole built not bought, shop car, whatever argument - my car was built in a shop (Phantom Autowerke, call them for anything, they're awesome!) but you can ask anyone that knows me I worked my ass off getting that car built. I went to the shop every night after my full time job, every weekend, and any free time in between for 11 months straight. I learned SO MUCH from those guys by being involved and asking questions and doing things myself. I know that car better than anyone else and have a whole new found respect for the work a lot of others put into their cars.

      Again, thanks to everyone involved with H2O for putting on one hell of a show - Jay, Cory, Jason, etc. and everyone who's helped me build the car I always wanted - Anthony, Lou, Andrew, Dehate, etc.

      While everyone else complains about which mk4 should have won...this Rado would have had my vote...prob one of my favorite cars of the show...

      Next to just about every car Unix built...

      Call me crazy, but I think that girl Paige had a nicer 20th
      Thanks for the compliment. Paige is my girlfriend and we built her entire car ourselves, but it is nowhere near what Angels 20th is. He is a very cool dude and down to earth. He didn't even wanna bring the car cause its not finished. But his people talked him into it. And for the record his car IS a R32 and yes it is 5spd which is getting changed out. I do agree with what you people are saying. I thought that twin charged mk2 was badass. Everyone was walking past it saying "i cant believe it still has an 8v", and "why do all that to an 8v"......these mk4-5-6 kids need to understand vw history...in the mid 90's you were the man if you had a g60 swap lol maybe i will bring my racecar next year and try for top dawg.....its got a shaved bay and nice paint

      I am a "MKIV kid" for what it is worth..but I am a person who enjoys all vw's/audis I just happen to really enjoy the mkiv platform...not all MKIV kids are the same but I will say that the younger generation no matter what platform they prefer has no respect for anything or anyone when it comes to hard work and different "original" ideas...the scene as a whole right now

      I think that he meant it has a 3.2 (its not though?)... which is still wrong because that doesn't make it an R32. that makes it a vr6 swapped 20th. i don't think he knows what he's talking about all together haha

      gotta say tht JB 20th is pretty nice. I do see what you all mean by spending so mcuh on body and paint and turbo and everything else he should have gone for the 02m swap or even the full awd drivetrain

      But honestly its a show car and thats what it was built for obviously just to come win a trophy or try to atleast. And that thing is pretty damn nice for what it is.

      I do think its only fair that your TD car should run and atleast be able to drive from hotel into the show and back. I missed the show this year. but post more pics of the said TD cars.
