You boys better be ready for the Loopoo!
Iíve been forced to make an induction kit (K&N want £125!!!) to make clearance for the front strut brace as the engine cover/airbox was in the way.

Anyhow, I reckon Iíve probably made a 1% power increase on top of the 50bhp I already had, I know itís not a timed event but itíll be pretty obvious the Loopoo is one of the quickest if not THE quickest thing on the track.

Or getting under the brake & clutch pedal just when you need to use both of them, don't ask how I know

Thereís still time to organise such an event!
Could have categories such as best VW, best car with less than 51bhp and slowest lap that looked slower than it actually was
