Topic of the Day...

Offroad VW based vehicles have problems/insights all their own. Not to mention the knowledge gained in VW durability.

The 300 cu in in-line 6 was a heck of an engine; they were even using it to drag race with. If I remember correctly there was a period of time when they cut one cylinder off each of a pair of certain V8 heads and attached them to the top of the 300 incher. The big deal on the 200 cu in in-line 6 was to find some very rare here Australian cross-flow heads. GM had a couple of good in-lines with the GMC probably being the best of them especially with the Wayne 12 port (cross-flow) head. I started out playing with Chev in-line 6s.

Remember, one never know what is going to happen so be ahead of the game. :wink:

I love that motor. Good amount of power not too bad gas mileage considering. Reliable. One of the major reasons I got this truck.

Yup....typical last minute deal for the Mint, like always for me. LOL

JT and I will be pitting for 2016 Mint-400 winner John Willard in the orange 5014 class-5 unlimited.

Not going to make it down for qualifying this year but we will be hanging out on Freemont all day Friday and probably in the main pit Sat.
