If you are still looking to change over from 034 to VEMS, Mark Swanson made an adapter cable for my CQ when he changed mine. Used the same sensors and wiring, already installed.
Just a thought.

Good to know. I like options. I’m thinking of just replacing everything as it is quite of. Thinking about potential damaged wires, corrosion, etc over time.

We will see. Thx for the idea.

Good article that talks about Docol R8 tubing. This is what we used in my MK1 Scirocco cage.

are those Quantum front spindles on the scirocco? they would have the bigger bearings and the hubs would still be 4 x100.
Do you think there will be any events this year? I bought a car but havent' gone through it yet.

Unsure what they are. Some local VW guys (without seeing the front end in person... just pictures I posted) thought they were Audi 4000 rears on the front.

Just guessing. I haven't looked everywhere to see if there is a part number.

Reading through the 2003 Golf magazine, it states "Carrera dampers at the front and rear". It is in the section named "Two-step garage" on page 5. The whole article is fun to read. Very cool car. Bill changed the engine to a 1.8T while still using the 020 transmission.

I really don't know what they are.

He did have a Carrera engine in his old Bug ("the bathtub") that he still holds record for the 100% dirt Mt. Washington hillclimb. Perhaps he had other parts from the donor car.

For events in 2021... still a lot of unknowns when we will start. Waiting for a more open environment in Vermont to allow for hillclimbs. Philo hillclimb is scheduled for May 1-2, but we are still unsure about it until state government makes some changes... might be too early in the year.

It is a bit frustrating, but if that is all I have to deal with in life, I'll take it.
