Hi

NPC in Queensland looked over my clutch and flywheel, they gave them a grind and made my a new cushion puck clutch plate. Ive been wanting to fit a 1/2 cage for a while, I might get it done before the motor goes back in

Prettiest clutch plate I have ever seen. Half cage sounds like a good idea given the huge power you have in this Beetle. Amazing car which is a credit to you

Hi

I asked for advice from a water cooled VW tuner when I made my air intake in the right mudguard about what sort of enclosed air filter to use. So I bought an Italian made BMC Oval Trumpet air filter, the VW tuner told me he was using these on 400 hp water cooled VWs.

You can see the BMC air filter in the top view of my engine

I sent an email to BMC asking what would be the upper limit of this air filter.

Their reply,
"It is difficult to answer. 307 kW is about 415 hp.

In the past we tested the OTAs on engines having the above power, but due to the huge quantity of air they needed, they were insufficient to power any engine.

The best result we achieved is around 300 hp = 180 rwKw.

Please take note that also other factors must be considered, such as for instance the load loss consequent to the installation.

Just to sum up, it is not only a matter of empirical power.

We eventually recommend the filer with PN ACCDA100-220-01."


My tuner was worried that he couldn't account for the air flow into the inlet at high speed so I'm pretty sure I'm going to use a Blitz Carbon Core but this time I will only have the air from my mudguard intake blowing on the filter inlet not physically connected as I did with the BMC unit

Hi

As anybody knows who has added more contemporary parts to an old VW you know that you soon run out of places to fit things.

I'm running an in tank Walbro 460, I did suffer some fuel surge at the VW Nationals Supersprint so I'm now fitting a Taarks surge tank with another Walbro 460 inside, the Walbro pump in the fuel tank will now feed the Taarks surge tank.

One Walbro 460 is good for about 560 kW, if I need more fuel supply I can simply fit another pump inside the surge tank. Im aiming for 400 kW at the wheels so one 460 should be enough.

Steve

Hi

I went for a chrome-moly IHRA spec cage, being checked by their tech guy tomorrow night. The cage was done by Ministry of Fabrication, a new fabrication shop that usually does cages and nudge bars for drift cars. the guys are ex AGI a well known roll cage supplier. They tied the cage into my chassis at the rear.

Ministry of Fabrication as the name would suggest use a few lightning bolts as their trade mark.

Putting the motor back in soon then another tune, hopefully get closer to 400 rwkW this time

Nice and stiff now!

Question: With the front roof bar, could you move it to above the visors, so that it's closer to where the front legs bend down?

Hi

Not sure if moving the cross piece would help anything.

Just had the car inspected by the IHRA guy, passed with flying colours, he was very impressed with how it was done, needs another inspection with the car ready to race with all safety gear etc then it is able to go down to a 8.00. pass. I will be happy to get into the 10s.

When I thought about having a cage fitted I wanted to stiffen up the chassis. I had to make new top shock mounts so that I could lay the shocks over to clear the axles as the motor and trans are 100 mm forward. Ministry of Fabrication tied the cage into the extended shock mounts.

I was running some Toyo R888R on the street, 225 40 x 18 & 245 40 x 18, great tyre but a little stiff. Iv'e now fitted these tyres to some hollow spoke twist wheels for track days.

So now I'm going to run some Nitto Invos in 225 40 x 18 and 265 35 x 18.

I also had the wheels repainted by Barrel Bros while they were off the car, same colour

I just had my rear mudguards tidied up after running on Gunnedah Airport, they got really chewed up by rocks on the airport road surface at over 200 kph, the panel beater spayed some stone guard on them.

When I ran my car at a supersprint last year the rear tyre picked up the mudguard intake and ripped it out, just had new one made with hopefully enough tyre clearance

I have to run a flywheel scatter shield as well. These are some photos that Wally from the Netherlands fitted to his G50 transmission

Hi

The photos I posted of the shield belongs to Wally from the Netherlands. I'm making one along similar lines.

I went to a local profile cutting place http://www.hawleysengineering.com.au/  and they are rolling up a piece steel for me now. I cant wait to get this thing back on the road.

I sure do hope I don't need it but its for the safety of track officials etc. If a failure took the front off the gearbox that's $10,000

Hi

I fitted a nice radiator overflow where the air conditioning compressor would normally fit and something I've been meaning to do for a long time, a rear tray to fit between the rear apron and motor. I'm not sure if this will upset airflow in the engine bay

Just got the car back from the tuner, I was hoping for more but it looks like I may have reached the limit of the current setup. Its still scary fast.

Now I waiting for the drag strip to open so that I can have the approval on my cage ticked off.

With all the Covid closures the local drag strip has decided to resurface the strip so I still haven't had the final tech inspection on my cage

I've entered a roll racing event at the Sydney Motorsport Park this coming Friday 7th August but the weather predictions aren't too good for that night.

I've fitted up my Mickey Thompson ET Streets for the event on some 18x9 Simmons OM wheels, they a 245/40x18. Took it it for a kebab run the other night, they are hooking up nicely even though they have been sitting next to my garage unused for about 5 years
