F150 3.5 Eco Boost. Is it enough...

Is it enough for pulling a 3000lb trailer and a 3000lb racecar and all the extras. It’s rated for 10,500lb but most folks have HD trucks I’ve noticed. Tx.

Re: Returning to COMSCC

Hi Seth
I’m running a Mk7 GTI. The MQB platform is very capable. I’m still a newbie though. I’ve done quite a few mods putting me into T-70. It’s a fun car to drive. I’d be happy to talk more if you want to give me a call (any evening)

Re: Roll cage

Got my GTI back from Chris Howard with a custom welded in roll bar. Very satisfied with the result. A very good price as well. Thanks for the lead Graham!

Re: Harness // rollbar options

I’m in a similar situation. For now I need to drive my car on the street. Chris Howard in Holliston MA is going to build a 4 pt welded in roll bar for my GTI. He said he can continue it in the future by adding to it when I’m ready. Very good price as well.

Roll cage

Hi all,
I’m looking to put a rollbar/roll cage along with racing seats and harness in my VW GTI for next season. Any advice would be appreciated and a recommendation for someone who does roll cages in the Boston area.

Re: Suspension advice

Hi Dan,
What do you mean by destroying brakes? I ask because I've been going through pads pretty fast. I went through a practically new set of front pads on the first day at WGI. I'm switching to Carbotech. I hope it makes a difference.

Re: Suspension advice

The Mk7 GTI Performance Pack (US name) and the Clubsport have VW VAQ diff, which is essentially an electronically controlled clutch-type LSD. Very similar to the e-diff in a Ferrari, among others.

Suspension advice

Hi folks, I’m considering MCS suspension for my GTI. Any advice or recommendations would be much appreciated. It’s still a dual purpose car though not a daily driver. MCS suggests setting the car up at the beginning of the season with a bias toward the track then setting it up for the street after t...

With the currency exchange rate I thought the Mt Tremblant trip was a bargain.

Re: Racing in the heat

That’s a good idea. Right now it looks like Friday will be ok. Saturday afternoon will be full sun and 94F.
