    My Lada 2107 Racecar Project

    Wow Mancs! That lada of yours is pretty cool! Fast car! (looks fast!) Very nice videos! What engine is it? How much hp/nM???? And you have a shortend gearbox? Or is it that short in a normal lada? Sounds like the gearbox is similar to my short gearbox. Grts!

    Hey guys, thanks for the comments :) Yeah the drifting was so much fun, on wet roads I barely have to touch the acceleratorpedal, on dry roads it's possible but I don't want to, need my tires to last ;) Mancs! Great! I'm looking forward to them! I love your lada, and the work you've put in it...

    Hi Guys, I jump in every now and then to check for some interesting threads, and download the Top Gear episodes of course! And for the people interested..;) Engine is running great, but not optimal. It takes me 9secs to go from 0 to 62mp/h/100km/h. Not bad, but should be better. And I have...

    Hi guys! Brings back good memories posting here in the past! Haz: didn't build it myself, has been quite a struggle as you might have read. It's not as fast as it should be, one carb is not fully functional and the timing has expired after 2 weeks, so have to get back to the garage. Ehm...

    I'm restoring my '70 Bug

    Haz!!! GREAT work! Love the fact you changed the rearlights, don't really like the big elephantlights, nice wheels. Good to hear you still have the bug, and that you're restoring it! I can remember the talks we had about you wanting one! Wish you all the luck in taking it apart, your drawing...

    First of all, hi to everyone I know from 2 years ago! Here I am for the interested..probably not many ;) Anyway, I've been driving the new engine for about 2 months now and like it very much. It's got load of torque in the lower rpm-region and it will do burnouts in 2nd gear on dry roads...

    Two weeks ago I brought it to The Hague (Den Haag) to be inspected, engine has a strange ticking sound, deep inside. So that has to be figured out firs. Hopefully it'll be ready at the end of this month!

    Hey guys, thanks. Andy, no don't think I'll be back in LFS, haven't played it again since I left here...so I'm not the 'God on the tracks' as I used to be..;) Mancs, nice Lada, read your thread, good to see it drifting! Jeffy and Mischief, I?ll be posting some vids in the next two-three weeks...

    Mancs! Thanks, I could post some pictures in this post! Which Volkswagen did you get? Let's hope a Golf I? Blind-Io: It's a Fiat Punto, not a Volvo ;) FBC: thanks, I'll be making some new pics when the new engine is installed! It is a nice project, just got home from bringing it to a...

    Hi guys, been a long time since I logged in the last time, but couldn't stand letting the 'old folks' from finalgear know what's going on with my beetle. It's been restored in original state, (see picture). It now has the original 1300cc 40hp engine, I bought a new one... an 1835cc dual...

    Jamie Olivers Volkswagen Bus T1 with Porsche engine on TG

    Hey guys, dropped in again to ask you a question, I heard about an old episode of TG with Jamies T1 (a porsche engine or a 1641 with turbo) and Jeremy's cooking a meal in the back while the Stig takes it for a quick lap around the track. Anybody know which episode this was? Thanks, Jos
