Volkswagen Kit Cars

Well I drove it around the parking lot.

It spins, skids, and does donuts.

But

Traction is limited.......I can spin and spin and never get the tires hot. It looks like I am gonna hafta go to real race tires instead of the soft dot tires.
 
I never did get happy with the Chinese copy of an msd copy of a Chevy hei distributor. The distributor spins fine but the electronics inside of it can't seem to keep up.

So

Putting a stator wheel and hall effect sensor on it and building my own ignition triggering. Keeping the distributor to.... ummm... distribute, but with no electronics inside of it.

The homemade crank trigger. Now gotta take my computer box apart again and solder more parts to the board.

But in the meanwhile......Working on the main chunk of body, prepping for paint.Lots of smoothing to all the modified/added into areas.Lotsa filler primer and block sanding.Third cycle of prime and sand going on now.16954899126791.jpg
 
O.... and.

I let some air out of the tires and it is starting to hook up more....

tires will squeal now. Zig zaggedy curly cue marks all over the parking lot have about all washed off with the rains.
 
So...... computer all the way back apart...... solder some more parts..... and all the way back together.

Now have and igbt and a trigger circuit.

Now some more programming changes to make.

Started going back into the car today.

Some re-wireing/changes yet to make.
