VW Sand Rail 1600 Dual Port With Holley Bugspray and Megaphone Exhaust
just idleing, revving up and walking around
I think the carb could use some tuning. I think it is running rich. It seems like it runs a lot smoother once I rev it up a bit...like the plugs are loading up and I clean them out...that could be what all that smoke is too. Any thoughts?
Bad crash at Glamis December 16th 2012
Bad Crash at Glamis December 2012. I'm wearing the Gopro. The rider was
okay, no broken bones, no internal bleeding, he was checked at the
Snippet from my face book page:
The experienced guy rolls through the bowls but the new guy...... well....
he is coming around the first bowl near the top to transition to the second
bowl and he bails on the bowl and starts heading down the bowl. At the
bottom of the bowl is a bush where a 4-5 foot mound of sand has piled up.
This guy target fixates on the mound, goes whiskey throttle, gets to the
bottom of the bowl hits a g-out, and goes from whiskey throttle to pinned
throttle, and hits the mound. This guy jumped about 75 feet and landed on
his face. We fired up and raced over to him and he is laying there not
moving at all. Jump off the quad and get over to him and he is face down
snoring the kind snore you just don't want to hear. I'm calling out his
name and a trickle of blood runs down his face and I am thinking this guy
is going to take 4-5 more breaths and check out but he keeps breathing. We
are calling out his name, his girlfriend is on the phone with 911 crying
and puking, and about 5 minutes have gone by when we see a leg twitch..
then an arm twitch. He started trying to roll over, and we were trying to
keep him down but he was struggling so hard we thought we might injure him
so we let him kind of do his thing. He kept trying to sit up, still snoring
and fighting us. He finally sat up and after awhile stopped snoring and
could answer questions. Nothing was broken that we could see and the blood
I saw came from the helmet hitting his cheek. We were in a really bad spot
for the air lift so my buddy used the Razor to gently take him back to
camp. Medics showed up and this guy was actually ok but he couldn't
remember the last 30 minutes.

one shown here with a new one.
Sand rail crash and rescue at Dumont Dunes 2012
During a dune run this driver couldn't see the witches eye before it was
too late. this was his first time ever driving a sand car, and his first
time out in this car he built himself.
No major damage, just the Tie rods pulled out and bent upper control arms
on the right side. It took a long time to dig and pull this car out
though... it's a heavy beast. Very cool car though.
Classic VW Engine Rebuild, By Last Chance Auto Restore.com
We began with a dual port 1600 cc engine from a 1973 Volkswagen Beetle.
The engine ran with a miss and was smoking a bit . After performing a
compression test,(both wet and dry) , we determined the crankshaft and
bearings were fine.
We replaced the pistons, pots & rings. We had the valves redone and made
several upgrades along the way.....
My motor is alive!
after working on my rail buggy for right at 14 months and slowly building
the engine over the past 2 or so i finally got to crank it. this was the
second time it cranked successfully. timeing needs to be set and the carb
needs to be dialed in but it cranks!
