      SOLD. thanks for looking. merry holidays to you!


      [IMG] image sharing[/IMG]time has come for this guy to leave my garage. this is a no holds barred, full out VW racecar for SPO or ITE. if you want to eat vipers, vettes, 911turbos (you name it) in a VW, then this is for you. OK. let's talk about it:
      body:
      tubed front end
      custom cage with nascar style driver's side

      original steel roof, floor pan and firewall

      lexan "glass" all the way around
      fully profiled underside with immense diffuser. aluminum skin on steel sub frame
      fabcar aluminum skin wing from IMSA GTP car (i don't remember which one)
      slope mounted radiator with exhaust over hood
      front mounted intercooler with exhaust over hood
      vented arches front and rear

      all work done by Mad Hatter Aero and Precision Motorsports

      custom intercooler
      iron exhaust manifold

      supertrapp mufler
      DRY SUMP!!! 12 quart capacity with oil warmer (for cold starts)
      oil cooler
      built by Bob Quindazi of QED
      engine dyno tuned at Williams racing by Bob
      492hp at 23psi

      image hosting over 2mb

      electronics:
      race logic traction control
      APEXI boost controller
      034efi fuel injection
      VDO tach with shift lights

      suspension:
      suspension points are all tied in directly to cage (rears are built off of the cage not through the sheet metal)
      Bilstein fully threaded RACE (not street stuff) coilovers 2.25" ID hypercoil springs (currently 700lb/in front and 350lb/in back)
      Shine racing rear anti roll bars (two installed)
      shine racing camber plates back
      custom upper camber plates in the front with heim joints (these are higher than the regular strut towers by about 1.5" for more travel)
      16" X 9" kosei k1 wheels
      15" X 8.5" kosei k1 wheels

      brakes:
      AP lockheed brakes front
      2 piece rotors/aluminum hats iron slotted disks
      performance friction 93 compound pads
      cockpit adjustable brake bias

      there is just too much to list. i'll put on some pictures.

      i had some stuff here, before about no low balling and no offers of trades. well, i need the money or else i have to get a different street car. so, if you've got an interesting trade, i guess i am interested, too. nothing old. it's got to be a daily driver. i'd prefer a jetta diesel wagon. but i like CCs a lot, too.

      i hope you like my ultimate old school scirocco

      Yeah, I bought everything: hood, hatch doors, fenders and quarters, and the Kamei front spoiler, but not your spoiler Tom told me it was yours anyways...

      What kind of transmission do you have in the car, if you don't mind me asking?
      Free bump for an awsome car, done right!
      If I didn't hold myself back, I would be tempted...

      ah, come on, don't hold yourself back

      i seem to remember 02A but that doesn't sound right. what was the stock tranny in the corrado? it's that rebuilt by shine racing with a quaife . no, i don't mind asking at all. i also converted it to a juice clutch rather than the cable one. the gearing works quite well for NHIS and Limerock although it appears, by my calculations, that it will run out of gearing a bit before the end of the strait at limerock, but this is just a pretty simple calculation because i don't have a good estimate of Cd.

      i've got lots more pics if anyone's really interested. if i had to, what do you think i could get for just the motor? i could always build another one of those. the chassis i don't think i could ever find the resources to again do.

      thanks, sir. yeah, this guy purchased one of three US spec Rallye Golfs in the world. it's probably the only one that still exists, i imagine. you should at least post a pic of it here so we can see it.

      Just for my own entertainment, do you have an in-car video of this on the track?

      yeah. well, it's not exactly this car. it's this car when it was built a little differently. not so, um, nice. it used to have a g60 in it and i did all of the work in my garage which ended up with a pretty duct tape type car. it was heavier then and worse aero. but you can see that, even then, it was keeping up with and beating vipers. the video is very short. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdpQ6On7sRc
      there's another, also.

      that being said, the newer version is about a gazillion times better.

      Thanks... enjoyed it. The corner that you started the video in is where I spun out (in the rain) and thought for sure that I was heading for the wall. Thankfully the wall is a long ways from the outside of the corner.

      I like the new Scirocco... all functional. Out of my price range for racing. Best of luck!

      Lol. They are both very cool, but I LOVE the Rocco. I had a 81 Rocco track car for a few years. Such a great looking, lightweight, fun car at the track. I wish I could own this, but I have all my money wrapped into a 325i track car at the moment. Again good luck with your sale. some one will be getting a very sick car for sure!

      thanks man, (man, right? ) yeah, i hope that someone gets it. track cars are great...nothing like a real race car. if you know anyone...

      at this point, i am so friggen desperate that i'd take any serious offer. so, if you know anyone...


      what tracks are you racing? slippery point? pocono? the new jersey ones?

      Yes and yes, mostly the 3 tracks at Summit & at VIR. Will hopefully be trying NJ next year. I shared your ad with some friends, & I work at VW shop so lots of VW heads around.

      sweet. thanks!

      btw, there's a guy that may still be at summit point that had tom davey old gt3 scirocco locked up down there. totally cool car. the flares that i had that we molded (see above comments) were the same flares from that car. anyway, it would be totally cool if someone got that on the track again. i don't know what it would run because it would be totally outclassed in gt3 (it's a unibody) and would get killed in ITE or SPO. good for time trialing or hill climb fun, though. really neeto motor. check it out.

      again, thanks for shopping my car around.

      here're some more pics (these are from my old phone...)

      notice that the ducting for the bumper's a lot different in the final version in the pictures in the first post. the diffuser's the same, though. in the engine pic, obviously, I hadn't done all of the intercooler piping then. you can see the reservoirs for the master cylinders and the clutch cylinder. it's all top of the line stuff. i'll post a few more pics now. if there are any special requests for a specific place, I can do that tomorrow or Saturday.

      and, I keep on forgetting that I have much bigger endplates for the wing. they are needed but weren't legal on the IMSA cars.







      and my favorite one (I love the scirocco!)
