  1. The time has come. Our 1986 MK2 Vr6 Jetta is for sale. We have had great success with this car but unfortunately we no longer have the room for it. The Jetta was professionally swapped in the early 2000s and used as a show car before a hail storm dented the body and it was retired to a scca rallycross car. The vr6 conversion was completed using a 93 SLC donor car and included the full harness and fuse box. We acquired the car, finished stripping the interior and added the cage in 2013 and have numerous top 10 finishes including: 1st at NCM and 4th at Mid Ohio. The car has proven to be very reliable with a rash of broken axles as our only issue. This was corrected by replacing the front hubs. The car has raced at Charlotte, NCM, AMP, Road Atlanta, Mid Ohio, COTA, Barber, VIR, and PIR and can get 2hrs on fuel, depending on your driving style. However, 1:30 -1:45 was the norm for us. The car uses the factory SLC gauges and we've added a volt meter to watch the battery along with a thermostat override switch for the cooling fan. The car has bumps and bruises but has never been totaled, into a wall, t-boned etc. The worse damage is on the rear driver door and has been like that since we bought the car. The windshield is cracked but does not obstruct driver's view and has passed tech for 4yrs. Engine: 2.8 VR6 from a 98 Golf converted to OBD1 with ~150k. Single row timing chains and guides have been replaced. New oil pan, oil cooler, valve cover, and intake gaskets, new plugs. Trans: 02a with 02j shifter. Suspension: Bilstein HD with H&R springs, solid "R32" bushings, no front sway bar, H&R 28mm adjustable rear sway bar. Brakes: ABS, 97 Golf GTI front calipers and rotors with 93 Corrado SLC calipers and rotors in rear. Front rotors are Stoptech slotted with Hawk HT10 pads ~90% life. Rear rotors and pads are OEM quality with ~75% life. Cage: 1.5x.120 DOM professionally installed by TennFab in Knoxville TN. Fuel: stock tank with stock mk2 surge tank and secondary pump. Tires: 205/50/15 Maxxis victra vr-1. 95% tread. Put on new and driven in the rain for 2hrs. Spares: A complete list needs to be made but we have - Three sets of wheels/tires including the brand new set of Maxxis currently on the car. The other wheels are fitted with Falkens in various, usable, condition. Brand new radiator, brand new Hawk HT10 pads, rear rotors with bearings, front rotors, hood, front bumper, front radiator support, grill, factory headlights, CV axles, timing chain covers, exhaust manifolds, ob2 harness, belt tensioner, engine short block (needs checked), front hubs, ..... What the car needs: A new owner/ team that will lovingly drive the wheels off it. The belts, window net, fire system, transponder, seat, and radio have been removed from the car and will need to be added by the new owners according to their sanctioning bodies rules. The paint is showing its age and could use a refresh inside and out. A fresh alignment.... (we can't give you all our secrets ) The car is located in Knoxville, TN and comes with a clean TN title.

  6. Long story short, my race car build has come to a halt. I was driving my MK1 Volkswagen around while collecting parts for the build and someone ended up hitting me hard enough to write the car off. I've decided to part out all my stuff now as finding a decent shell to start again will be difficult. I had Terry Bride at Terry Bride Racing Engines and Machine complete an entire overhaul of the entire motor. There are brand new pistons which I purchased separately (not reflected on the bill) and of course bearings and rings. I will be including a 5speed transmission flywheel (new), and clutch (new), stainless 4-2-1 header (new) as well as all the misc bits to get 90% of the motor fitted to a MK1 chassis with the sale. I am asking $1000obo (CAD) for EVERYTHING. I really just want to part with it all, parts are located in Surrey, BC.
  7. My neighbor has a Corrado with a blown motor for sale. I don't know much about it besides that, but if you're interested ask me the pertinent questions and I'll get you an answer. Somebody here must want to race one. They look cool.

  9. OK here is one for the rules lawyers/torturers here. Thought I'd bounce this off you all before bothering Phil. I have adopted/inherited/stolen a VW MK2 basket case. As I was sliding the transmission around my garage I just saw a hint of magic marker on the case, indicating that it has (a numerically higher than stock) final drive and LSD. The damn thing is nasty dirty and if I had started cleaning it in a darker spot of the garage I could have a clear conscience, but here I am. My question for you: Is this a trans swap with value add for the LSD? Is it value add for the final drive plus value add for the the LSD? Or is a MK2 so slow, that I could declare an Xtrac 6speed and still not get laps? The logical side tells me to sell the box, weld up a stock box and be money and points ahead. The racer in me wants to try the cool box at least once.
  10. I have 14, 14" 4x100 stock Honda CR-X alloy wheels for sale and 5 14" 4x100 VW alloy wheels for sale. The VW wheels have a set of Nitto NT-01 that can get a day of track use out of them.

  14. Hey all, I have a 1989 VW golf gti 16v dohc that I'm looking to sell, located in central CA, Salinas. It's rust free and currently has no carpet and the back seats are pulled out. If you want to back up, you'll need a new transmission which I can get ordered for you from a friend as these are hard to find for the 16v models. It's cage ready, I originally wanted to track it but other expenses/priorities got in the way. Currently sitting on raceland coilovers and new tires, and corrado rear disc brake conversion, it's driveable as it sits, just needs a new home whether you want to track build it or put new carpet in it and have some weekend fun, it's ready! I don't have a price in mind but it has a clean CA title and passed smog no problem. Registered til September and the odo stopped at 191,559, has right around 194 now. Make me an offer and let's get talking! Thanks! Pics will be posted tonight or text 831-235-7551 anytime!
  15. Hi, this is just a feeler post. I need to get serious about putting my car together, been thinking about asking for help, forming a new team based in the NC Triangle area. My car is ready to be put back together now and thought that it was a good time to bring people on-board; the building part. The fun part ; ) The car is a 1989 MK2 VW Jetta Coupe. 8V Digifant with an ABA bottom end. So If you are a VW person, a front wheel drive ninja, or know what you're talking about 50% of the time, you could be a fit for me. Mostly I just want to get on track and have fun, socialize, be smart, see what develops. Well thanks for leads / ideas. I'll post some pics of the status of the machine next...
  16. I’m a new member to the forum and was hoping to connect with some members who are running VW’s. My friend and I live in the Los Angeles area and are thinking about putting together a car for some west coast chumpcar events. My friend already owns a 94 2.0 8V Jetta, so we were contemplating turning this into our chumpcar. That being said I was wondering if you might be able to give us a few setup pointers? What are the most important mods? How much weight can you get out of these cars? Is and ECU upgrade a good idea? Suspension? Fuel economy when racing? Tires? Tire wear? In your opinion, is this a platform that’s competitive? And anything else you’d like to share about your experience. Thanks in advance!
  17. So I already have my Miata but the guys I work with want to build a Chump Car and I offered to help. We are doing this at work and another coworker donated a 2000 Beetle 1.8T (was his daughters, she defaulted on the loan 3 years ago and it just never go repossessed. The paperwork at the bank says it was but in his driveway it sat, he filed the paperwork for abandoned property and technically owns it but the title is junk so he gave it to us!!! lol). None of us know anything about Beetles or VW at all so if anyone has any advice that would be great! Thanks!
  18. Not mine, but I figure I would pass it along to you Chumps. http://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=1560825

  21. Hey all, Just curious if any of the folks running mk2 golfs could clue me into how to disable the steering lock. I have the ignition key out of the housing and can see the slider which engages the lock but am not sure how to prevent it from operating. Thanks for any help you can provide.
