First start of rotary vw bug
First start of my cosmo 13b-re TT powered vw bug. It has the microtech lt10s w/ x4 box. As you can see from the video, there is a bunch of white smoke. Possible water line into manifold? Any ideas as to that smoke? UPDATE: The car has been long since fixed. I tore the engine apart and did a full rebuild. The problem was a stuck side seal and blown omp lines. Its completely fine fine now and running. The car is still a build and I will never be done with it. New things are still being added to the car today as of 1/23/14.

Detroit Mud Run 1994 2/3
Part 2. Detroit Maine. Tricky track for some reason. Mudosaurus gave up the VW bus transaxle (skimmers need automatics - one gear is very limiting) for a chevy powerglide 2 speed with 6000 stall converter and trans brake and a ford 9" rear axle with aluminum spool. This cut the times almost in half (with the Nitrous installed later on) When driving up to the starting line the engine would often flood out and take awhile to clear up, I found out later that the carb would shake from vibration and dump fuel. A stiffer carb mount would have probably fixed the flood-outs. After installing Nitrous oxide later in 1994 the engine was damaged from a series of unfortunate events so I replaced the VW beetle engine with a 350 chevy V8. Even with the NOS it ran slower times than with the VW engine. The front end is 1973 VW Thing front spindles and ball joints with fabricated control arms and VW Rabbit steering rack with modified tierods.
