|I drive my car hard every day, each on-ramp is my drag strip! Thats the way i built it,,,to drive!
Love the FastBack style car, rides like a normal car! Not bouncy or ridged like my old bug was. I can
go 75mph in the car-pool lane and hit bumps and cracks in the road and it just drives like a car
should. Not like a kit car! A real car. If i need to drive and pick up parts, if it fits in the FastBack then
thats what i will drive. So people ask about my combo, here is some info. It is basically one of our
type 1 upright 2387cc turn key engine combs with a Ghia turbo kit on it!.
86x94 (2387cc) NO IT DOES NOT RUN HOT. AND JUST SO YOU KNOW, THE WORLD IS NOT FLAT.
Its a poplar question on large motors. The answer is all the same, If combo is built correctly then there is
no problems at all!
