1981 VW Rabbit diesel 4 speed 0-60 with a straight pipe. Shot outside Chilton, WI
Poor quality vid - sorry...
1981 Volkswagon Rabbit diesel 0 - 60 from a dead stop. I wasn't really giving her the berries, just wanted a quick video.
I bought this car 6 months ago for a good fuel milage car. It needed brake lines, and I never really had the ambition to change them until the other day. I've been driving this car for two weeks now and absolutly love it. As a matter of fact, I prefer to drive this over my Cadillac Fleetwood. In the two weeks of driving it (about 15 miles a day), I never knew if the fuel guage worked because it never moved off 1/3 tank. So just before shooting this vid, I filled it up. 6.0 gallons! (And yes, the guage works!)
The only reason it is so loud, it there is absolutly no muffler. I do have one, but it boils down to the ambition thing.... Someday - probly not today. Tomorrow doesnt look good either...
1979 Rabbit 1.5 liter Diesel 4 speed
Who remembers these? Volkswagen introduced the diesel powered Rabbit here
in America in 1978 or 1979..... as I remember.... as I was only 11-12 years
old. They were NOT so popular. Stinky, noisy, and underpowered were the
comments I heard. They had a following, but 'normal' people drove big
Amercan Iron. haha. Now those 'odd' people are the cool people, just ahead
of thier time. And...now these old stinky diesels are cool. This particular
car belongs to one of my best customers This Rabbit, is a one owner, daily
driven, all original 1979 Rabbit 1.5 diesel with roughly 40 hp and 50 ft
lbs torque. You just don't see these anymore.
83 VW Rabbit GTI
A little tour of my Mk1 Gti that I just recently picked up. The Exhaust has a pretty bad bang when it first
starts up. Im trying to get that fixed asap. If you dont like it or you
have unconstructive criticism please feel free to shut up haha. Havent
started working on her yet so give me any advice or ideas you may have.
Dirty diesel fuel injector vs normal operation
A diesel fuel injector out of a VW Rabbit 1.6 first as it came out of the
engine and then after disassembly and cleaning. It opened at the correct
pressure but did not pop. It just squirted a stream which is no good.
After cleaning, it popped normally at 1850 psi. This injector was creating
a hamering noise at idle and a smoky misfire at cold startup. Once fixed,
car ran great again.

vw rabbit turbo diesel autocross race
first time out racing the diesel rabbit, 2 days after buying it, on one
hour of sleep after spending 36hrs straight preparing it for this race. It
was a high-adrenaline environment, and I was wearing steel toe boots!
Managed to beat an integra, a talon AWD turbo, a lotus elise turbo, a bigblock corvette and a rotary powered mg
before getting eliminated. what fun!
