It's an amazing car. I personally have never driven but would imagine that it's insane.

whoops, I typed that wrong. Let me explain. lol.
I didn't mean to say quater mile. Hotrods/Musclecars/VW Beetle used to do 1/8 mile (200m) drag runs.

Hotrods were FR layouts. Front engine, RWD. They had 2000cc+ engine and huge superchargers/blowers.
They could do a 200 meters in low 4-sec.

The older Gen. VW Beetle based on the design of the hotrod, only they were made smaller and more round due to having a smaller V6 engine and had RWD. They stored the engine in the back of the car/trunk making it RR and the tire goesi n the front lol WTFx.

anyways, They hit low to mid 10s and it didnt cost much to make it do that. It was fairly low to the ground and a good centre of gravity, but a gas guzzler though.

well, if you're still confused about something, just quote and I'll get back to you on it and try to explain coherently.
