Car and driver the bug weighs 1650. My car 2350.
But my powerglide transmission and Ford 8.8 rear-end make up most of the weight of my car.
I've tuned my car to 11.50.
My nitrous control launches me at 40% off the line to 100% at the 60 foot. I could probably bump it to 60-70%.
I'll be heads up with him in Wooburn this October.
Let's see what happens. 😃

Raced at Import Face Off this past Sunday.
Car ran great as always.
Although I didn't take home the trophy, I had a awesome time. 🙂
My buddy Joe runs a VW Bug 2300cc all motor (no nitrous).
It's a crazy car that runs in the 10's but can't compete with the big boy imports so he runs in the 11.50 class with me.
Got my car to run an 11.62 but Joe is a veteran at sand bagging so it's hard to beat that.
He took home the trophy running a 11.52. He's a good friend and we help each other at the track.
Here's a video of us heads up. 🙂

Thanks D.
I'm learning that my car runs faster midday when the temperature peaks out.
A couple of weeks ago I ran a 11.69 and then an 11.66 in the morning. Dialed in an 11.65 and ran a whopping 11.49. My strategy is to back off the nitrous start percentage from 40% to 10%. That should put me at the 11.50 mark.
Friday I'll be racing at the Northwest Good Guys Nationals.
Lets see what the car does.
Next Import Face Off is in August. 👍

Manage to take another 2nd Place in the 11.50 Index at IFO in Woodburn Oregon last month. No trophy but the winnings were enough to pay for my weekend trip down there from Seattle. In the morning that day I found out that I had a dead battery and needed a jump for first round of qualifying. A friend in the pits had a spare so installed it and continued the race. The battery is about 5 years old so time for a replacement.
Decided to go Lithium.
Noco makes a 700 amp 12 volt battery that has good reviews. 5 pounds compared to the 36 pound (42 including metal frame to hold battery in box) lead acid battery.
I bought two (17 pounds 2x batterys plus metal frame in bottom of battery box). One to run the car and one to power the bottle warmer on my nitrous. In the end the wiring ended up being a Frankenstein but it does have ryme and reason. I needed a battery isolator to charge the nitrous battery and also installed a battery kill switch between the two just in case the main battery died. That way I could still start the car jumping it from the nitrous battery. It works. Dropped roughly 20 pounds off the car.

The radio. My buddy gave it to me. He thought I may have a use for it.
Needed new tires as well. 🙂

Import Face Off in Kent Washington yesterday. Had a fun day. With light rains and the track restriction times, they had to end the race before it finished. Shared the Purse Winings with 2 other racers.
I dialed in the 11.50 Index class and ran a 11.67.
I know the car will run faster with tunning and more juice but the car has found its happy place. 🙂

D,
I have a 6 point cage which allows me to run up to a 9.91.
9.90 and faster would require a 8 point. So I'm pretty safe and pretty sure I won't go that fast. 🙂
Racing season starts April 1st. 👍

The rears are 15", 26" tires which again, M&H had the only tire that would fit that I wanted.
That VW was beast. No boost, no Nitrous, nothing but motor. I think it's a 1400 VW motor with 14 to 1 compression running VP C17.
Anyways, I just need to dial my car more closer to the 11.50 mark. 👍

Thanks. This has been an ongoing build.
24" tall front runners on a 15" wheel. M&H had the only tire that would fit.
The mini spool is the rich man's locker. Not interested in welding anymore differential. 🙂

A couple of changes this year to the car. I decided to get rid of the front steel wheels and go with an aluminum wheel with 3.5 inch skinny's in the front and a mini spool in the the rear. Should improve times. We hope. 🙂
