My first run this event. *edit*(Turns out I had snapped one of the rear trailing beam's pivot bolts.) Or so I thought. Yes, one of the bolts was bent, but neither were actually broken. The real cause of the crazy braking issue was a sheared brake rotor! Front right brake was inoperative! *end edit* Imagine my suprise when I hit the brakes and the car got all squirrely! Good thing the stop box marshall was standing off to the side! Wiping out the the stop box cones counts as an off course, so my time wasn't posted. Just using a stopwatch during the video shows about 51 seconds. Based on managing a 3 second drop over the rest of my runs in a friend's car, (see my other vids) it's reasonable to think I could have attained 48 second runs, putting me in the top 5! Big words. I'll see if I can prove it next time. =D
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!

your car, bud!

Having a German car shop in California for 20 years and a hoard of children
I need a source of safe inexpensive cars, not only for the kids but for me
too. Operating a body shop also influenced what I believed were the
strongest safest cars. The VW Rabbit/Golf proved to be structurally safe
and extremely reliable and inexpensive to operate. From the Diesel power
cars that got incredible fuel milage, to the great performance and handling
of the Scirocco and the GTI and the style of the Cabriolet and Jetta, the
perfect sporty family car of the time. All of the first generation cars
proved their worth in safety, longevity and in racing. I cannot remember
when we did not have at least half dozen we owned. we still kept them
around when we graduated the kids to Audis, Porsches and Mercedes. I even
campaigned a Jetta in NASA racing, the ultimate rain car and I did
extremely well with it in the 1/2 mile oval at Altamont. The durability of
these cars is legendary, our 1978 Scirocco S was our first and we kept it
until 1994 when sold it to one of my techs when it had 280,000 miles in
1997. when I last spoke to him in 2004 the car was at 480,000 miles. The
1.6 liter engine was still going strong..

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
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...
turbo diesel rabbit pickup project start to finish
Buy a bigger one and give the Arabic countries that hate us all your
money.....NOT. Have fun making somthing that gets incrediable MPG and still
go fast. 37-45 mpg tuned to go pretty fast. If you want to save even more
money you can easily adjust the fuel screw and get over 50. and go 65-70
with the A/c blowing cold.

Silent Diesel Generator
This original Aurora Generator first made 2005 is now even smaller and
quieter then ever. http://www.AuroraGenerators.com
Remote Start Silent Diesel Generator 6500 Watt - Aurora makes the highest
quality available anyplace. Perfect for emergency home power generation.
They call them "quiet" but that's because in comparison to traditional open
frame type generators they make a lot less noise.
Today the 2013 models have EPA Tier 4 approval. Because of this they
produce no smoke and burn much less fuel. On average 3.9 gallon fuel tank
lasts up to 12 hours.
Autobahn: Lamborghini Murcielago "vs." our VW Diesel Golf Wagon
Located on the German Autobahn, recorded April 19, 2010, somewhere on A1, I
forget exactly where. I was driving our VW Golf Wagon rental car loaded
with 4 people and heavy suitcases, and we found this Lambo stuck behind
cars in a construction zone, so we tried to catch him to no avail. (Note: I
did not take this video while driving- my passenger did). You can tell the
driver was just itching to get the little cars out of his way. That car was
born to race!
