Another failed Sachs bearing, I am beginning to think they had a bad production run of these things. I had two fail, but the third has been going strong. I thought it was due to my clutch design (Billet Plate clutch from 034), but now I am thinking just crappy bearings. I am going to be running one of their all metal TO bearings from now on for Billet Clutches

Something seems goofy there Mike. The center driveshaft allows for a lot of movement front and back. I wouldn't be surprised if you engine is further forward than you thought. Is the engine as far back as the engine mounts will allow?

Hank,

That picture was taken when we had moved the engine back a bit, but after we found how far back
it needed to go. We moved the subframe, slotted the front engine mount and shifted it back
as far as it will go. I will take a couple of pictures of where it ended up.

cheers, Mike

I 'll say this Hank.

The engine is all the way back,however Martin in his ever ending knowledge, told us to install
the 7a engine brackets, apparently they move the engine back even further that the stock urq,
engine brackets.

The last I heard, is that Mike installed the driver 7A bracket only, and he is closer on the driver side.

Martin would know, however , he's on a plane to Poland as we speak.

Mike chime in when you get a chance.

Cheers,

Craig

Yes, see these mounts are rs2 replicas down to the bore size on the bottomed of yhr mount. The slot up top is a good template for keeping it square for slidding. Do not be afraid to drill further forward if needed to get alignment correct. The drive shaft can safely take about 1.75" of travel backwards without issue. I will say that I am using the urq mounts still on my urq with these jigged replica mounts.

Hopton said, "Hopefully be done before Brandon.

BTW, a man on the ground reports that Colorado ur-q owners, don't actually drive
their cars..... "

We deserved that. :slap:
Yeah we had a poor urq showing when Martin was here :( - hopefully he'll be making more trips out here and we can redeem ourselves. That said I'll put my average yearly mileage up against almost anybody :-) My car is super close to being done - the rebuilt transmissiopn has been back in the car for at least a month - truly a day or two's worth of work and it will be ready to hit the road - just waiting on a part or two (which I won't have til next week)....

PS hopefully Martin shared the swag with all you guys up there.

Mike,

Thanks for letting me drive the 4q. It took a licking for sure, it just refused
to stop working.

I don't know how many offs that car had with no problems, other
than a few plastic pieces that need putting back on. It brought back
so many memories of my 4q.

I think you son Matthew gets best action shot picture.

Cheers,

Craig

Looks like you guys had a blast! Nice shots! I'll do my best to come to the next event.

What speeds were you reaching on the straights?

Depended on the car. Dad's black S6 was hitting 140 but it has ~600hp. In Martin's TDI I hit around 100. In my stock S6 I hit around 110.

Scariest 140kph I've ever done...
