1973 Super Beetle with a Turbo Subaru EJ25 at the Dragstrip

1973 Super Beetle with a turbo Subaru EJ25 flat-four

John Reynolds and his “Supersleeper” Beetle visited the 1/8-mile drag strip at Irwindale Speedway for some racing. At first the ACT single-disc clutch wasn’t able to hold the power from the turbocharged 2.5 L EJ25 flat-four to the WRX five-speed dogbox. However after letting it cool down he was able to get some good passes with one being a 7.01 sec at 106.86 mph. John is wanting to upgrade to a twin-disc clutch.
