WILL IT RUN? Turning The Key After 5 Years [$10,000 Rear Engine Challenge]

99% 7 986 69

After years of neglect and shed storage, we're attempting to get this old VW Buggy working again so it can go head to head in a race with Martys JDM MR2. With just $10,000 each to buy and fix a car, we have to get our nuggets working and ready for battle!
But seems old VW's can be temperamental and need some extra love. After a complete carburettor rebuild and a complete new fuel system, we're trying to start this car for the first time in half a decade. But some of the parts we need to research have had questionable Google results... (make sure your Safe Search is on)

@Dick kallerhan Watch the first video again, the rule is the engine is not allowed to be in the front of the car, so either of them are fine.

Why are you not just telling us that you're sponsored by Ryobi and WD-40 Company? :/ Because it sure seems like it, but I might be wrong.

Why do You have to use a piece of hose on the plugs? In Europe we get specialized sockets with rubber inserts to hold the plug in place, easy to get in & out. I've seen people from US do the same recently, and I just wonder if you do not get this simple tool?

Shouldn't you be calling it the MOOG Buggy? Who is Cheryl? If that was my car i'd drain ALL of the oil out. After refilling, just remove the HT lead so you don't get a spark and then turn the engine over on the starter until you hear the note change and the speed drop. If you have an oil pressure guage then you'd crank it until you saw the correct pressure. Then, knowing you have full lubrication, you can pop the HT lead back on and go for ignition. That's funny, when i heard 'scat cam' i immediately heard Martin shout, "Yeah, scat. The car is scat!" I we wouldn't mean anything to do with jazz...

Why does it seem like their end goal of everything is to literally make a "skid"? Who cares about "skids"? Also does that car even have a suspension? Why are you thinking about putting it on a race track?

I can tell now that it's not just a tarted up standard type 1 engine, it looks like it was built to make some power. The compression sounded really high when it was cranking over. I'd bet it is probably putting down 135-150 HP or so, should be a screamer.

I wonder if Moog will see this, but you should totally buy an AMR500 roots supercharger off ebay for just over $300 and chuck him in the moon buggy. Just an idea, not sure how practical it would be though being that you have just under $2000 to spare for the project.
