Jeremy Freedman in Texas has been tryinbg to get his 3.0-litre VR6-engined Golf through the 200mph barrier over the flying mile. He's finally done it!  Here's his e-mail:
"I thought I would update you on the weekened at the Texas Mile. First pass on Friday we broke 3rd and 5th gears. We got it back to the pits and started pulling it apart. Despite the car falling off the jacks with no tires on( I thought we were done then) we were able to get another tranny in the car to go out and run again. That pass the boost was turned off and was running just waste gate. The car went 186 and felt perfect so we shut her down for the night and waited until Sat. to run again. On Sat. we went out and  ran 191, 198, and then the 204!!! I finally did it!!!! We got to 200mph!!! We decided to end on a good note and partied the night away celebrating the 204mph pass.
We woke up Sunday and turned it up since we had met our goal on Sat. and the car went 206, and then 208!!!!!!!! We did it!!! We stole the show and I've never had soooo much fun in my LIFE!!!! I can tell you that 200+ mph is fast and in the little vw its a handful to keep her going straight!!!  Thanks Jeremy"

I´m pretty sure it will still get to 200mph with only front wheel drive, but it will get there a lot quicker with 4 wheel drive ;-)

BUT over 1000hp on a 1.85L is impressive, no matter how many wheels or what brand it is - amazing result!

the driver and the builder of the engine are crazy ..this engine drives with "still" 800 hp and 2,1bar.
the max. horspower are even more than 1050hp but they don't need it.

for sure with only front wheel drive I think this beast would still turn on the point it stands...like 10 sec. haha
they have 4 wheels but extreme large ones.


but hey...its not aircooled! Roll Eyes
