The bug is running 12s with 11s or even 10s as the goal. Turns out they had to detune the engine to allow the clutch to hook up. The detuned engine put them in the 12s.

What do you do on a quiet day on a car forum? Post up some old vids.

I enjoyed watching this build. With them fabricating custom parts, it had to cost a mint. I'm surprised the bug didn't drop the drivetrain on the track. Looks like the front wheels are barely touching the ground.

It's a solid video, no doubt. They upgraded the driveline...and honestly, people have been throwing giant power at old beetles and running ridiculous 1/4's for awhile now. It's actually pretty easy because of how basic they are and because parts are so plentiful.
