Erm, yeh. It was running 32psi when I took it out last night (forgot to select the boost control port on the ecu DOH!) at which point it was going what ever direction it wanted (using 2 lanes of the dual carriageway) and I was along for the ride. But that was with the tracking out etc so it was going to be playful lol.

Why have I not seen this and what actual f**k. Look at that turbo.
I thought you sold this aswel? Im behind.
 
Awesome, though the thought of all that torque steer/wheel spin sounds like no fun - anything you can do to improve on it? I see you already have decent tyres & LSD!
Equal length shafts is an option, but it's quite a bit of work as no VW has equal length shafts as standard. I have an idea in the making which will eliminate all torque steer.

Jeez. Mega, Mega build!

My mate has a similar setup in his A3 track car running around the same power and that is bonkers, Can only imagine what this is like with bit less weight!

Any more videos i can show him?

It's at Bedford with me and some others off here this weekend, so I'll try to get some of it from behind with my GoPro. Until it f***s off into the distance, that is! Lol!
 
I'll put some vids up when I've uploaded them.

So thoughts from anyone who saw/passenger'd in it yesterday?

@AlexW @MicKPM @Edges

It has highlighted a few issues, that I hadn't found on road use, mainly the clutch line needs rethinking as its getting hot and slipping the clutch, 360bhp is taking its toll on 140k old rings/stem seals so it's starting to smoke a little. And it needs a swirl pot, as under hard Cornering it was starving itself of fuel if under 2/3 of a tank.
 
  Many.
Much the same for me, was surprised how well it handled, straight line speed compared to a standard 1*2 is amazing.
 
  LY FF182
Epic I though, the speed is insane and the way you steer constantly to go in a straight line is hilarious!
 
So Roll centre kit fitted (didn't grab a pic so here's a library pic)

I was also having issues with fuel surge, on long right handers if below half a tank. So dug out my old fuel setup from the shed. And I had a spare hour so chucked it in (the red wire was just a mock up to confirm it all worked!)
