VW Action..

well, we made it!
The last time Project Super 90 was driven/running was way back in 1981, yet after some intensive tinkering (and a little luck..!), we managed to get it slammed, running and moving under its own steam just hours before leaving for VW Action!

We had a lot of fun cruising around the site, but the icing on the cake must surely be the 'spirit of VW Action' trophy, which made all the blood, sweat and tears (and late nights..) so worthwhile!!

more pics and video coming very soon, but for now we're just kicking back and relaxing after an awesome weekend. oh, and 'thank you' to all those that dropped by the campsite to check it out, too - Your comments and enthusiasm were well received!!

ground zero..

well, after much blood, sweat and swearing (!) the rear end is now suitably slammed, and just in time for VW Action!
Check it out if you make it along - we're not 'trading' in the usual sense, but will be there with the Audi enjoying the racing and the show!!

front end goes down..

the beauty of an adjustable torsion bar set-up!

it was a little lower to start with, however the exhaust was literally rubbing the floor so we raised it a little.. can't wait to get the back down to match now...

time for tinkering!

before running the car, the fuel tank was removed and flushed...
  more on the mechanical mayhem in an upcoming issue of Ultra VW magazine!

here's a bit of a suspension teaser for you though.. yes, the front end is adjusted via these lever arms beneath the front seats! Longitudinal torsion bar system is not dissimilar to the VW T4 in design
