VW Fuel for Thought | Timing Belt
Meagan from Volkswagen hits the street to find out how much people really
know about their cars. Several passersby had some pretty decent guesses as
to what this could be. The answer: it's a timing belt.
The timing belt helps keep car parts running smoothly. The timing belt
loops around camshaft gears, and controls the valves that let fuel into the
car cylinder. In a closed-loop system, all car parts must work together for
the engine to run, so a broken timing belt should be replaced immediately.

"These cars will pretty much do everything," says Tanner Foust. In a racing
series where the vehicles go from 0 to 60 in two seconds and corner like
they're on rails, the GRC Beetle will be "better than most supercars on the
road." Continues Tanner, "[A] Volkswagen checks all those boxes and that's
why it's a great vehicle for this sport."
