I think the fastest of those was 10.26. Mind you (adding some racing driver excuses) brakes were completely shot after our roadtrip and it has some silly noname tyres. I'll replace those glazed over pads at least, if I don't upgrade them on the same go. And if I can afford it from my other car projects, probably get some better rubber as well. We'll see what better gearing and working brakes do in early August.. 8)

I'm not familiar with the numbers (yet), but whatever the GTi gearbox has..

edit: I also still plan on using it for roadtrips, driving at the alps and the sort. So I can't be all track oriented with the gearing. After all, it's a 500km autobahn drive from the garage, just to get to the alpine region. Or 2000+ km drive, if I want it here.. :D

gt/gti gear ratios are 4.10:1. that's a decent ratio and my second favorite.

north american market verts came equipped with a 3 cylinder g10 engine and 4.39 transmissions. i like to mate the 4.39 to a g13b twincam from the gt/gti cars and drop that power unit into my verts. :wink:
