I will agree ... it's a bug motor .... now they have created a new technology to compress the gas that feeds the VW motor, but that is where the innovation ends. I did not see any photos of the chassis, just the fiberglass body.

Someone was asking about how many cc's earlier, well by the looks of it 1600 - 1776, depending on the carb set up, any larger and vw's required dual carburetors.

Good luck to them, at least its one more person giving it a shot ..
