VW drag cars are FAR from cheap. In fact, I know damn well I could be driving a 10-sec V8 drag car for less money than I have in my VW...... and it'd be alot more reliable and alot safer. What the hell are we doing? ???


Mostly kidding there on that last comment. I do the VW thing simply cuz its a VW, and oddly enough, I kinda dig VW's.

i dont know about that big....

a freind here has to buy a new converter for his powerglide. it is 900 dollars. he is running a f1? pro charger.. it is a bitch'n car. also, i guess there is something else in the tranny like a chromoly planetary gear set (which is over kill for what he is doing right now)is like 13 to 1500 bucks....

i would consider that to be at the same level of performance that we are at. so i think comparitivly speaking we still got it a little cheaper BUT i agree its expensive man.

how close are you to getting it done?
