well looks like a lively group here in the motorsport section.
hello everyone we are starting a new project here. branching into rallying scene with this new car.
together with me and few friends we call ourselves Team DEP
Building this project as fast as we can so we can be ready for the 2013 SCCA rallycross season
Here's what we started with
97 vw jetta trek edition shell
was past show car (pvw feb 07) and a 1/4 drag car 12second abaT. Some of you may recognize the car. The rolling shell was ideal because this is going to be a complete frame up build. no bolt overlooked or unturned here.
got the car right and the shop and started rummaging through the car to see what goodies were inside (my right hand man , kyle f in the pic)
The mk3 has been garaged for 10 years. and the body was in very good shape considering its still a mk3; So it was a no brainer for us.
The goodie list as follows
Welded 6pt cage
10 gallon fuel cell
welded solid motor/trans mounts
battery cut off
poly control arm bushings
carbon fiber golf hood.
sparco wheel(little rough)
front wheel studs
full plastic sideskirts (christmas miracle )
also found some rear mk4 calipers in there which we will be using.
heres some photos
mk2 flares and mirror delete
ok now we ripped the carpet out. to see how the floors were
at first they didnt look too bad (surprising for a mk3)
a closer eye discovered hairline cracks on the front and some holes in the rear but overall much better then we thought
give us some feedback for more updates!
