Drag Racing in Alaska !
michla
Yes, we have a BEAUTIFUL drag strip up here, a full quarter mile. July 4th, 2014 is the 50th Anniversary celebration of the founding of Alaska Raceway Park in Palmer, Alaska, some 38 miles north of Anchorage (www.alaskaracewaypark.com) and we're going to get Nitro cars visiting for the event. Alot of high-dollar machines up here but not many Volkswagens as you can imagine (:-[
I've been draggin' here for 9 years now, raced since 1986 in Colorado, Wyoming, Arizona and California before that in a '73 Super Beetle Baja (some of you may remember the bullhorns on the front hood, ha) that has been since retired.

Finished the body-off, 10 point roll cage car in 2004, detailing every last little piece. Powerplant is a normally-aspirated 2332cc four-banger with a Type 1 IRS gearbox in front of it with lots of aftermarket racing parts (set-up properly, failures aren't common). 12.50 secs in the quarter @ 600ASL.

Reverse gear install modification

Reverse gear install modification
michla
I had to remove my reverse gear from the shaft to install the Berg GB PRO1050 pinion nut--the *flange* is of larger diameter and sits behind the reverse gear when installed, but unless the reverse gear shaft assembly is out before installing the pinion nut (not possible if you're installed the gear carrier), you'll have to find a way to install the reverse gear circlip compressing the belville (curved washer). The washer is critical because it keeps the gear from working off the reverse gear due to thrust loads and popping the circlip off (something about compensating loads by forcing the circlip against the shaft groove shoulder just enough to compensate). And advancing the pinion bearing nut a little at a time isn't an option if you don't want to gall up your pinion bearing bore--it has to be heated/expanded and the gear carrier insertion into the case has to be quick before it cools.

I mig-welded a stud to the shaft being very careful not to "overweld the edge and diff is out and pinion and mainshaft covered while welding so welding splatter doesn't stick (can ruin a ring & pinion). Parts must be clean for good weld--use lacquer thinner to remove oils. Tack weld stud at first so you can move it to center, spin the reverse gear by hand observing how close to rotating center with the shaft correcting by pushing the stud to rotate on center then finish-weld carefully not to overheat shaft. Stud is 8 X 1.25 X 32mm length, at least grade 8 (many engine studs are grade 8). You don't want to use a stud any longer so as to not interfere with the rotating differential.

I used a short thick wall (sturdy) collar I found in my junk parts with a 22mm or .870 inside diameter with a slit cut out just wide enough for the circlip tangs to stick out. The collar compresses the belville (curved) washer enough to get the circlip in the groove using a heavy-duty thick flat washer at the other end of the collar and nut tighened just enough to compress the belville washer (not too much--you could break off the stud!)

Started this incredible "project" in 1990, body-off with COMPLETE detailing throughout, lots of suspension mods, self-fabricated 10-point roll cage, Drag Race only. I moved in 1998 and bought a house--put a dent in my style! Finally finished and installed IRS tranny last year and now starting work on engine. Should be track-ready in 2003.
