Thanks!
The throttle linkage holds its synch very well and is very smooth.

I'm clueless about beetles, but this is a great looking little air-cooled car :mrgreen:

Thanks Paul. Well, they don't weigh much (~1600 lbs) and are very simple to work on and have huge aftermarket support. In the case of mine, the only part on my engine made by VW is a small gear that drives the distributor. The motor I built is 2.3L and makes 231 hp @ 7500 rpm, so the power to weight ratio of the car is pretty good. It's basically an overgrown gokart.

My most favorite VW I owned was my 61 Kombi. It only had 40HP, LOL Full Bus Boys lowering kit, no reduction boxes. It would run 80MPH all day long, haha. I daily drove it for three years and never had a single issue. Sure miss this thing!
