I love these, I've seen an orange one and a military one both were lowered like this. Very unique cars.

@milkplus @JakWhite  I understand the science I'm just wandering what kind of cornering speeds they achieve compared to the closest competitive class around the same corner, since the track looks reasonably small I doubt they get to ridiculous speeds, I know they ballast and build nascars in a similar way though they go much quicker, so it probably makes a lot more of a difference.

Whilst racing, were the racers with the body all the way to one side at much of an advantage in the corners?

@D1RGE EXE @JakWhite  for sure its not the same car, I just meant in that the ideology rather than actual parts, I really don't mind them using an LS, it's a great engine that's readily available on a crate! I for one will be watching with bated breath to see how it gets on. On a rules standpoint I think this has to be breaking them, based on 2014 rules.

If money weren't an issue, I'd have one of each, though I'm a man of classical taste so would drive the old one a lot. Nothing can beat driving a brand new car once in a while so you don't get too used to it.

@Spaghetti  I think I've answered some of your question above, I assume they used an LS is for ease of tuning material over in the US, but also because its not a factory team, just a sponsored one.

I think the reason they used a Passat in RWD platform compared to a golf which already has a 4wd system in the R model is because of high speed stability from the longer chassis compared to the short one also switching left to right (or vise versa) drifts are probably more controllable, also possibly because of this... the BTCC Passat from the past few years sponsored by, yup you guessed it, so some of the RWD and race technology has been moved over.

@tom  I don't think he had a choice, I think it was the fact his sponsors, Volkswagen and Rockstar energy already have a partnership with his rally cross team, so it was an easy crossover to a sport he's familiar with, with them. A car that was made for drifting is far less interesting than one totally engineered to drift. As with all race cars, you can hardly call an F1 Ferrari the same as that you get on the road.

I like it though I'm not too much a fan of the spoiler, there should definitely be one there but I would have tried something else. I think it may be that the uprights are silver/bare metal.

A gentleman motorist recognises only two speeds - a moderate tootle and a fair old lick. Never venture behind the wheel of a car unless in suitable attire accompanied with goggles and a pipe. Never take the names of Stirling Moss, Alfred Dunhill, W.O. Bentley or Alec Issigonis in vain. Jay Leno should be added to those names.

@Spaghetti  I'm completely with you on this, in that there are some people (players carl taylor) will do some outrageous mods, get loads of hits on the web after loading his car up with advertising mods, to then get in a magazine, as soon as the features done the car is redone and then in a few months time the cars back in the same magazine featuring the latest released advertised parts... Then because of this you see the car all over the internet, its then torn down again and swapped up. Is it really that hard for magazines to find new material? Or do they just love the advertising supplement's they must be getting from not only posting ads but featuring cars that are ads as opposed to original modifications, its just boring, I'm glad Speedhunters gives us a massive variety of stuff.

@MikeYee  These points, all valid. For me, it's about the story that comes with the car, now new cars don't come with a story, they have to be made, and that's where the adventure begins. Rightly so there won't be as many tall tales of driving the car back using shoelaces and blutack, but you'll be telling stories of how impressed you were with how it coped under extreme conditions where any older car would fail.


My own Golf mk2 came to me by luck, I had seen it years before in a city I used to live, 200 miles away from where I live now and I adored it, everything about it in fact. The colour was right, the engine was right, the amount of doors was right, the wheels were right, the condition was right. Fast forward 5 years, the exact car appears for sale locally and cheaply, almost like it was meant to be, I had just sold my volvo and had the means to get it home, the stars had aligned shall we say.


To the point I have a photograph of the golf with my classic car in the background, taken by the previous owner before we even knew each other existed.


Things like that just don't happen. So I bought it on the spot when I realised it was "the" golf I had been lusting after for years.

The only two things I'm not keen on are the overhang of the spoiler onto the taillights and the LEDs on the front. Other than that its spot on.

A zonda, just because. A Subaru 22b and a Makkinen edition Evo, have them stare it out in my garage. A F350 superduty slammed with many power mods because you just don't get them over here in the UK. A lead sled for those days I'm feeling baller, a Land Rover Defender 110 crewcab with a modern range rover engine swapped in and many off road mods. A mk1 mini cooper in A1 condition, a Lambretta LD150 with a matching Vespa VB. A G-nosed Datsun. A Golf mk1 GTI, and if I could find one for sale a 90's ex-supertouring car.


I'd find an excuse for every single one of them. Oh and a Mondeo estate diesel to absolutely ruin when I have to do shit journeys to the dump and long distances so I don't put too many miles on the other nicer motors.
