this is in memory of my old 1996 fwd gti vr6 that did 14.6 on the 1/4 mile when i was 17 years old..she was my street car but she was a sleeper...its was a vr6 with neuspeed chip..lighten clutch and flywheel and interior..short throw shifter and suspenion 3angle valve grind..and of corse a 150 shot of nos..by far the fastest front wheel drive car I've ever had to date.
dubbed the 'sleeper' so i bring you this
the tamiya ff01 2000 and up vw golf v5 chasss and body for my speed shootout...its front wheel drive only..:biggthumpup::luxhello:
shhh shes sleeping

chassis done...time to paint the body. and most likely gonna use the stock wheels for that real sleeper effect.

this colour is what mine was so..of corse thats the colour of choice.
