It's almost there!! Unfortunately the team has crumbled around me, and I'm left to sell what we have. The more I look at the parts, the more I just want to finish it, but it needs to go. Comes with everything (minus Harnesses, and the wire for the battery disconnect) you need to finish the car and go racing.

You should talk to that guy who rallies one of these, maybe he wants another one?

Halley? I don't think he actually owns that beetle anymore. With the Lemons cage, it'd need a lot of updates to be stage rally legal. Not sure the door bars are legal at all per FIA 253J (which is what ARA certifies to).

How does that transmission do endurance racing?  Beating on any automatic for heavy track use and long periods of time seems like it wouldn't end well.

Otherwise it looks like a good deal for a starter team.

Not sure how it would have done. The plan was always a manual swap, eventually. I had to stop myself from buying a mk4 Jetta 5 speed with a blown engine a couple weeks ago...

The original choice of the car was not mine.

Start your Lemon's team with this Lady bug! I was thinking about covering it in round pieces of black vinyl and getting these costumes: https://www.partycity.com/adult-darling-ladybug-costume-plus-size-P592777.html
