We have to thank our friends and family who support us. We have an excellent support group of friends and family that have allowed us to stay at their houses, raid their refrigerators, store cars and parts in their garages, miss birthdays (or anniversaries :ph34r:), and drink their beverages.  Seriously...we have to thank them, or they may not let us do any of it again.

Are you guys going to be at VIR this weekend ?



Wow, sorry guys.  I didn't expect anyone to reply to the profile page so I haven't checked it for any comments.  

The Jetta has been VR6 swapped and  I don't believe we have your book flyinglizard

Goose- we didn't make it the spring VIR event but we will be at the Chumpionship at the end of the year. Our next race will be NCM followed by COTA.  We may pick up another race between COTA and the Dec. VIR race but I am not sure yet.

I do have some video but it'll be a little while before I can sort through it.  We just got a new camera from one of our sponsors (killboy.com <----shameless plug) that we were trying out and it only recorded the first 2.5 hrs of the race.  We should have it dialed in next race and be able to record the majority of a race if not the whole thing. 


We have been building our own axles using JY VW shafts and new ends.  So far we have had decent luck when our hubs are in good condition.

It's been a little while since I've updated this page.  We blew our motor during the 2017 AMP Race and I moved across the state at the same time.  We are still around and I have been picking up rides with other teams and volunteering at different races. 


We are currently in the process of swapping a new engine into the MKII and have plans for a new car slated for a 2019 debut!
