Nice car! Some weird English translation of the German there, but the car is great. 2200cc and 165hp makes an oval window bug look even nicer!

Wow, she handles ok.

The big question, is it IRS or swing axle.

Just what would he have done to the suspension? That thing stuck like glue.

Whats with the turbo cooling too? I like the sound of that. Ive seen set ups like that before - are they common?

Wow i,m going to throw a spanner in the works here.

I reckon there,s way to much body roll and it understeers like a dog, some better tyres may help the steering.

Stiffer front and rear shocks will also help body roll along with a good rear bar, imho.

Very nice car, allthough CT,s Beetle looks better and handles better.:tu:

Cheers Col

He is just calling the Porsche fan turbochargers :lol:

You have to get a quality Porsche shroud kit for one that works well.
Most of the cheap ones are for looks and cool worse than stock

Going by the Balljoint front end and 4 stud wheels its sitting on a late IRS pan.
