I live near richmond but work all over the state. Most days I commute 100 miles to Hampton Roads.
Jetta TDI Wagon. 40 mpg diesel. You're welcome.
Thats what I like to hear!Except the 40mph part.
Thats not a very manly ride.
In a few months I'm buying
You can just thank me now.
Illuminated cup holders? Priceless.
470 naturally aspirated horses with 470 ft/lbs of torque.
Step two will be adding a super charger. I need 700 horse power, at least.
"Thats not a very manly ride."
Men don't HAVE to be stupid.
You'd need more than just 700 hp. They are getting upwards of 850 now.
I worked on an NHRA Top Fuel Dragster for a little while and we had about 6500 horsepower.
You'd have loved it. The fuel injectors are called "shower heads" and are rated at 70 gallons per hour each.
That was 9 years ago. I suspect that they have made improvements since then but I was never a spectator and don't follow them since I don't have a direct interest anymore. I was surprised to find that they had shortened the track.
You need a shower head in your jetta.
6500 hp...good lard.fkn rocket ship
I've got a turbo. Air burns better than fuel anyway. That's the whole reason for the shower head.
4.52 second, 321 mph 1/4 mile.
Good car, great driver. All volunteer team (except the truck driver) with about $500k/year in sponsorships racing against Bud, Miller Lite, The Army, Snap-on etc. and their $5-10 Million per year it's hard to compete for long. We made one final and won some matches but you've got to be so careful with the car when money is that tight and parts break that much and are so expensive.
Then a wreck finished it off.
Ridiculous, I just want to get sub-12.
Breaking news....Wisconsin Rep. Gov. WinsRecall vote...
Blacks voted 94% for it.
Blacks are political pawns used by the left.Most do not have college educations..but vote just like the farLeft berkley grads....Has welfare and handouts really helped the plight of blacks in america..Or kept them right where the left needs them to be?
Maybe blacks just hate the obvious racism constantly spewed by the right.
Or maybe they hate that fact that the Republican party only cares about the 1%.
I did some diagnostic work for them. Ultra-sonic leak detection, vibration analysis, infra-red imaging. I helped them out some.
I found a bump in the track one time that allowed them to cut .05 seconds off their time and advance another round.
Did that with a piece of string.
It's truly breathtaking the first time you experience it standing right behind the starting line. You feel the pressure waves hit your chest and then they are either gone or spinning wildly right in front of you.
The nitro really stings your eyes, nose throat and lungs. The track is so sticky that you need to tighten up your shoes before you go on it or they will get pulled off.
Sitting there on the wall right behind the starting line with our crew chief, Connie Kaletta and Don Prudholm and getting to be on the track was quite an experience. Well worth the expense of having to do it for free.
And we got to eat in Jegs Coughlins gormet trailer. He hired the Ex. Chef from The Inn at Little Washington (*****) and gave him a huge budget to feed his crew and a few hundred of his closest friends over the weekends. Very well done.
