Great looking car; Nice wheels! <p>One of the pics reminded me of the ill-fated marketing idea of the "sky-hook" 4C system. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Beautiful car. Immaculately maintained and looks to kill.

Re: (bb vign)

George what is the extra brace under your car? It looks like some sort of chassis brace. Did I miss a previous thread on this?<p>

Probably to get rid of the "rake". <p>I put TME's on my VR and lost the rake, and I was glad to get it back when I switched back to the stock springs.

It is perfectly balanced with oversteer easily achieved in sharp turns and more throttle.
