Sooo, I never got ready with my Pank restoration, not yet. That hurts to be honest. Intentions are very clearly that Pank must run on VW meeting or two prior to final retire. It will happen.
For now the focus is on Pank II.
Ola Malm and Stefan Kocken Allansson are good team members.

The dragster was purchased in USA in April.
It was built in the mid 90s in California. Then sold a couple of times and ending up in Alabama.
It had been stored since 1999.
Few real documented facts existed.
I have now updated the dragster and got it SFI tagged/approved two days ago.

Engine has been given an update and a lot of hoses, nipples and methanol damaged parts been replaced.
Transmission is tested.
A test run/shake-down is planned in few weeks.  
Next year a complete overhauled dragster will be run at several events but no competition is planned.
It is a Pauter Gen 1 Engine.
104 bore and 96 stroke i.e. 3311 cc
Roller cam and Hilborn injection running 100% methanol.
4 stage Pauter dry sump
The transmisison is PG with transbrake and to my surprise it has a 8" converter that is bolted together. Unheard of  in 1999 apart from in very few places.

Several updates and refreshments going on.
But two "feel good" ones are the new wheels and the safety cage update.

Not a beautiful sight but it worked really well on 24 psi boost.
I am still very positively surprised in finding this technology in a very old car.  A1 did the transmission so I guees the converter might be so too.
