GSXR Powered VW Bug HotRod
Check out this crazy GSXR powered car from the minds of Hudlow Axle in Georgia. They made a VW Bug hotrod with a GSXR 1000 Motor! This thing rips. It uses air bag suspension, custom 2wd cherokee front axle, sidekick rear axle, and much more. You don't see a gsxr powered vw bug just every day so we decided to do a full feature on it. This GSXR Volkswagen flat out rips! Maybe next time he will let us drive it....

Bradley GT VW Bug with YZFR-1 R1 Engine on the road
Thanks again to Mike Sousa on the video and posting. Antique Car is totally done, registered and driving. It ends up liking 6th gear (motorcycle tranny), it went a little "over" speed limit in 4th (VW tranny), but seems to have the same top end speed that the normal VDub would have, about 80-90 mph, "though I didn't push it to that officer, honestly"
