Volkswagen Touareg V12 TDI Baja Racer debuts at LA Auto Show, check this badboy out..i want one!
13th is pretty good for a first showing, most get a DNF the first time around. I think of the #33 Toyota Tundra TT last year was there first race in that truck and it barely finished, this year they got 3rd in it. Also remember the VW has about 200 less hp compared to the rest of the TT field. Once it gets dialed in and all the kinks worked out it will be a hard truck to beat.FJ-Piper said:13th place? I saw that coming, it's a Volkswagen... ;D Pre 1970, they were awesome vehicles, now, I hate them.
That is actually really close to what you want for a body, wonder if they would sale you one when the time is right.Air2air said:Sorry to sound like a wet noodle but this car is cool because it's an Arciero/Miller, not a Volkswagen. As Jeshua will know, it is basically a SCORE Class 1 Truggy running the VW V-12. The body is gorgeous, and Arciero's website says it is from Fiberwerx in Huntington Beach.
I think our local SoCal guys in SD and OC building these SCORE vehicles are the greatest craftsmen around. Not to bag on VWs.
Trophy trucks are "branded" just by the different one-piece front end fiberglass, where you can choose Mopar, Ford or GM emblems. This Touareg body is exactly what I hope to do someday around a 4-seat chassis... just phenomenal.
They were down for a long time in the beginning and there was a lot of speculation on weather they were done or fixing things and it didn't help that there IRC tracker wasn't working.Krishna said:WOW 13th that is great. I was following the race this year listening to weatherman and heard that they were out....guess I needed to check out the results more closely before I open my yap. I thought that was one of the coolest entries this year. I am not missing next years no matter what. I have missed the last two and it kills me everytime.
