GSXR Powered VW Bug HotRod
Check out this crazy creation from the minds of Hudlow Axle in Georgia.
They made a Hot Rod VW Bug with a GSXR 1000 Motor! This thing rips. It uses
air bag suspension, custom 2wd cherokee front axle, sidekick rear axle, and
much more. Be sure to Like our Facebook Page at
Pro Turbo VW Drag Racing: PRA '94
PRA Pro turbo VW drag racing has been
called "the class where anything can happen", and you can see that in this
video. Watch a group of hardcore VW drag racers push their force-fed flat
fours to the limit, and beyond! Volkswagen drag racing legend Chris Bubetz
was the man to beat in 1994, and the points title chase went down to the
wire, with three race car drivers still in the hunt at the final race of
Ron Townsend was the 1993 PRA Pro turbo
points champion, and in 1994 he debuted a Dave Kawell-built turbo engine that had record-setting potential in
it. Manny Flores in Yellow Trouble worked his way up the ladder to lead the
1994 points chase. Steve Ortega brought out a sweet ride that also had the
potential to shake up the class rankings. VW drag racing doesn't get much
better than this!
This video wraps up with an onboard camera pass, from startup to shutdown,
with Chris Bubetz behind the wheel of his record-setting VW drag racing
bug. Onboard camera footage is a given in 2015, with a GoPro camera, but
back in 1994, things were much more difficult. It had to be done by bolting
the Hi8 videotape recorder to a padded box on the floor. There was a remote
video camera head bolted to the roll cage, that had it's own power supply.
Accelerate too quickly, and the tape would start skipping in the recorder,
and ruin the footage. Not a trivial undertaking, by any means.
2009 Hot VW Drag Day 124 MPH
Red Baron does a 124 MPH run. Didn't get the fun at the end though. He
spinned a 360 at the end of the run. Made me want to change my pants too!!!
