Turbo Diesel Mini Bike
Start at 2:13 to skip the intro, or click here for a helmet-cam ride:
This is an idea I've had since I was a kid, and after watching Mike Cberts
Diesel mini bike video I was inspired to put together my own! The frame
has been around since I was 4 years old! At that point it was powered by a
3 hp Briggs and Stratton and is a Fox corporation, Trail Bug probably from
the 60's or early 70's. The engine is a copy of a 10 hp Yanmar single
cylinder Diesel engine and the turbo is
similar to the one on my Honda CX-500 turbo motorcycle. The engine runs at 3,600 rpm
max and top speed so far is 39.3 mph.
Here's a description of 2 stroke & 4 stroke Diesel engines:
0-60 1983 VW Rabbit Diesel Automatic
This is a video of me doing 0-60 in my old 1983 diesel rabbit with an
automatic, wasn't too bad considering it was a 1.6l with 50hp going through
a 3 speed auto.
VW Rabbit Turbo Diesel Autocross 6
My friend out on another run. Getting faster! You can see my number (81) on it
this time as I broke my own car. Thanks for letting me finish the day in
your car, bud!
Check out my other vids to see me get this car up on two wheels!
Volkswagen Rabbit 1.6 Diesel
My brand new 1981 Volkswagen Rabbit 1.6 Diesel. 52 horsepower and 71.5 lb.ft
torque. 5-speed (4th and 5th gears are overdrive!!!) I'm going to convert
it to run on waste vegetable oil and/or biodiesel.
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!
Fast 82 VW Rabbit Pickup Turbo Deisel
This is the rabbit I currently have on listed on eBay. Engine custom built

I had built to my specs.
