VW Rabbit Turbo Diesel Autocross Race 5

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!

Volkswagen Rabbit
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 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...

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.

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!

VW Golf R vs. Audi S3 vs. Mercedes A45 AMG (English subtitled)
De vermogens lopen ook bij hete hatchbacks volledig uit de klauwen. Ondanks de komst van de nieuwe Golf R is de Mercedes A45 AMG met 360 pk op dit moment de krachtigste hete hatchback. Maar is het ook de leukste? We zoeken het uit in een vergelijk en halen ook de Audi S3 erbij.
