Cold tires, cold street, too much throttle, too little experience 😖 Lesson learned though!
Not pictured is my 1994 VW Jetta 2.0L. I raced it in SCCA, EP class, and it was my daily driver. Bullet-proof engine will go into the Bus (KEP adaptor kit) and the rest of the car is being parted out.
My best friend's older brother back then was a gifted mechanic at a shop where they worked on premium stuff, mostly older Italian cars. He rode a '78 900 SS Desmo, and the owner of the shop had a Moto Guzzi that seemed enormous. The Desmo had been breathed on a bit (camshaft and carbs, I think), and he swore it was the fastest thing on wheels.
