Blown V8 1969 Volkswagen Beetle Pro Street
Cruising around in my 1969 Volkswagen Pro Street. Car is Running Fat, need
some smaller carbs, that why youll see and hear it pop. Camera died during
the process of the burnout the end. Sorry for the Tease. lol. The car is a
2x3 Tube Chassis Car. 355 SBC. 671 BDS Blower Driven 1to1. turbo 350 Trans. Car was just featured in the May
Issue of Car Craft.
Taking my 383 V8 Bug for a spin.
Here's a video of my 383 sbc bug. It has 10.39:1 CR with vortec heads, runs
98 octane race gas, 750 cfm carb, summit stage I intake, isky cam 201278
278 duration, 234 @ .050, 106 LSA, .450 lift, built th350, B&M 2,300 -
2,500 stall, stock 7.625 S10 rear with 3.08. I need more gearing, and a
stronger rear, but that will come later.
Detroit Mud Run 1994 2/3
Part 2. Detroit Maine. Tricky track for some reason. Mudosaurus gave up the
VW bus transaxle (skimmers need automatics - one gear is very limiting)
for a chevy powerglide 2 speed with 6000 stall converter and trans brake
and a ford 9" rear axle with aluminum spool. This cut the times almost in
half (with the Nitrous installed later
on) When driving up to the starting line the engine would often flood out
and take awhile to clear up, I found out later that the carb would shake
from vibration and dump fuel. A stiffer carb mount would have probably
fixed the flood-outs. After installing Nitrous oxide later in 1994 the engine was damaged
from a series of unfortunate events so I replaced the VW beetle engine with
a 350 chevy V8. Even with the NOS it ran slower times than with the VW
engine. The front end is 1973 VW Thing front spindles and ball joints with
fabricated control arms and VW Rabbit steering rack with modified tierods.
