One mother VW Van!!!

Recommended Posts

Looks like a 6/71 blower on a chev v8 in a split window chopped top Kombi that prolly weighs about 750 - 800 kgs.

I have a mate who is doing a Kombi for the salt flats but using a heavily modded VW motor. It should be quick!!!

I'm a purist and have to say VW engine for the VW. You can make em go really hard but not just any mechanic can do it. It takes a specialist who knows them backwards to get the right result. ;)

I have a friend up here in Brisbane who has a 1975 Kombi bus lowered like mine but with 300zx brakes, 18" wheels and a modified Kombi gearbox(about $7500 worth) to hold the power of the turbo 20B rotary. At the Jamboree this year he ran a high 12 second pass on street tyres with what he describes as reasonable clutch slip into 4th gear. :o

I have sat in this thing and it's awesome. No need to provoke wheel spin as you can be halfway through 3rd gear and stand on it and watch the smoke start to bellow off the rear tyres. Just the noise and the acceleration is a buzz but you can get a real appreciation for it when your standing on the side of a the road and he takes off and goes nowhere in 1st hits 2nd and the front wheels momentarily skip off the road before the thing starts to fish tail. ;)

Not too many cars up here will race him cause if you go by the sound of it you can just tell it's got some serious mumbo. But there's always the Commodore/Falcon idiots who try :lol: (The best ones are the HSV/FPV owners; looks are priceless!!)
