Bullrun III - A NEW HOPE!
You were lucky to have made it as far as you did! I wish I had had that call. So your luckier than I. Don't toss any crap that you might one day regret. I think your very lucky to have been even given a chance to at least to audition for a life event. Those things don't come around very often. And besides your cars rocked and that should be enough for most.
We didn't make the final cut for Season II on Speed. To bad it was tight. Our casting director was Jenny. She did her best and said we were right in there. BUT.... Isn't there always a but. Any how it isn't a whole loss we are now even closer to the goal of becoming a contestent on the next Bullrun season. Jenny said that and I believe her.
SO WHAT DO WE NEED TO DO? To make it happen well that is what this blog is all about. It lets you know just what this team is up to. Not that it's going to help you beat us. Just let you know what your going to have to face someday.
To start I have already instructed Edge Motorsports to removed the motor and the Final 12 teams haven't even been picked for this season. I have a better design in mind for "theWarts" power plant. Right now it's a 1.9 litter boxer and a 2 litter with the Go3 heads producing 184 hp. After seeing some of the HEMI's (REB's) that just about made the show I was thinking that I needed a little more power in the punch bowl.
My friends Brad and Phill asked me if I would like to install a WRX Turbo motor in the bug? (yes it's water cooled) That is an idea that I might think about or build a 2.3 litter Turbo with about 340hp. I am going to look hard at both of the motors and find out just what will help me the most.
Remember that the Bullrun isn't just about horse power but brain power also. In season one we saw several cars go down because the motors were over built for this event and should have been strip or show cars. Two of the three cars that made the races final leg had only mild upgrades installed on the motors. So this isn't going to be an easy choice. As I get closer to making my mind up you will be informed here on my blog. - But that motor is going to be upgraded that you can bet on.
Yep! I'm back to weekly blogging on our attempt to get into BULLRUN III. I am looking forward to this seasons shows. I am also looking to find that edge in the race and by watching this seasons drama, I think I am going to find the right combination.
Team VW & MR. HAPPY are back! Like it or not we aren't going to roll over and drop dead....
