"right now somewhere in the middle of America there’s a truck road tripping to Vegas, and in the back of it is a spectacular Golf on its way to the biggest show of its kind in the world."
Looks like a Fast and Furious style heist is in order. Just kidding, this is the trifecta - amazing writing, beautiful pics and a ridiculously cool car. Bravo!

@Project 350ZTT It adds length to the car=more weight. So handling, gas mileage, and acceleration suffer. Making the engine more compact means they can also bring it further back for a more even weight balance.

I have been looking for this feature for a while, amazing build!

I think this is more an outside the box kind of build. Who builds a Cobra without traditional colors? Who builds one without a V8? I'm sure that horsepower figure could go way up if the owner changed pulleys, but it seems like this build is about driving hard instead of repairing stuff that breaks. It seems like a lot of these other Gatebil builds are of the "turn up the boost til it blows" though process, whereas this seems like a build that the owner wants to drive hard reliably and hold onto for a while.
Kinda hard to tell since they are dark, but I think they are RS5 wheels.

ISO is similar to film speed in film cameras. You would use ISO (or film speed) 100 for bright light shooting (like daytime outside at the track) and a higher ISO when shooting in the dark. The higher ISO helps increase shutter speed so you have a higher probability of getting a sharp shot at ISO 1800 in a darkly lit room rather than ISO 100. The trade off is the higher the ISO setting, usually the more noise or graininess in the photo. For the settings list: 24-105mm is the focal range (24mm at the wide end and 105 at the zoom end). f/4 is the maximum setting that the aperature can be set at through the zoom range. So that just shows the range of the lens
Me too! Great to see an up close feature on this youtube hero! Excellent pics and writing Bryn, there are just so many details on this build.

Also, most cameras have a JPEG + RAW mode if you want to use that so you can have both.

This can be a pretty heated argument like Nikon vs Canon. I shoot JPEG b/c the files store smaller and takes less software and computing power to process (I have an older computer and editing JPEGs takes less time), but RAW saves more of the data per picture - so picture quality is better and easier to correct mistakes made by incorrect exposure and settings. If you plan to shoot professionally or prints, shoot in RAW, if you want to post on web and need to turn around a lot of pics quickly, I recommend JPEG. Just my personal preference.
I don't believe for a second that Jr did it intentionally, but it looked to me (in the stands and on the screen) that he simply lost control of his car and then tried to cover it up. You and Jr were both churning out smoke like bosses!! Sorry if I misspoke, but just wanted to see you win in ATL!

I think another factor here is that Fredric is too nice to call Jr out and Jr isn't afraid to take advantage of that.
I agree, from where I was standing, it looked like Jr lost control and then just ran over Fredric. Even if Fredric came in too slow to be cautious (and it's not like he was doing 30mph), Jr's job was to follow his line.... I don't understand how Danny George taps another driver in the same corner and is DQ'd and then Jr runs OVER a competitor's car and gets another chance?
Great write-up Mike, all of you guys and girls have done an amazing job of bringing all of the car culture the world has to offer under one roof. I can consistently come to this site and see something new and exciting - I don't think this can be said for any other automotive site out there. I know you all put in long hours, crazy flights, and long car rides to get us these new rides and stories. Thank you guys so much for what you do, I will be checking your site daily (usually multiple times a day) for the next 5+ years to come!

@Roughsmoke look for details on a car and make them stand out using a narrow depth of field. Also try not to stand at eye level and take pics. Try to get higher or lower to create visual interest. Also a circular polarizer filter will help kill reflections of other cars or glare on your subject.
If you are on a budget, buy a used body and a spend a larger portion on the lens. Most people do this backwards. A great body will just exaggerate a mediocre lens.
My 2010 Honda Element has these same style clamshell/suicide type doors and it's not an expensive car, so it can be done.
