    Yea those bajas are neat. I am going to build a sndrail when I get all my projects done. My buddy has a rail and kept up with us on a trail thats rated 3. He just used alot of throttle, and bounced off alot of rocks. It was amazing he could do it.

    vw beetles are awesome cars. You can mod them in so many different ways. They are awesome off road vehicles in baja courses and great at the dragstrip. Numerous body kits are available and tons of engine upgrades are possible. a love bug with fuel injection and a turbo is going to kick ass with about 300 hp. A slightly stroked engine and dual carbs can give you up to or more then 190 hp.

    He can get 3" body lift for it. My 1970 beetle is totaly disassebled, but turns out about 200hp. She should be back on the road by next summer and turning out up 400hp; those Honda boys better beware.
