Why do I fool around with those 4 Rabbits ? ----so much ? . Does that really need to be answered ? --- I should think not.
But here is a stab at it from sick-bay ---- B.C. Canada.
In 1940 something when I first became a Radio HAM I fooled around a lot with
tubes ( Valves in UK )(for Mark) and wires and capacitors and so on.
Was all that time expended just to be able to talk to someone on the wireless ?
If that is the case ---I belong in a loony bin. There in lies the answer to the Rabbit question.
It makes no sense to fool around like that just for a pair of wheels. ---- so there must be
some other reason. -----and there is ----- it has to do with pure joy and enjoying life .
In short ---do your THING -------
My thing is diesels ---for the time being ----and to become a "Hogwarts" diesel wizard
and old geezer that can do magic with diesels -- is my dream.
And no finer platform for experimenting , than a Rabbit I have never seen. At 300 dollars
plus change US it is a win win all the way.
Am I a nut case ? ---sure ----so what ? --- on the fuel cap is a pair of red lips --kiss
painted with Red nailpolish. ----- have I been known to kiss the cap , before going on a long drive ?
-ummmm could be. ---getting incredible mileage right now. --Yes Mark Shepherd Lean
--but not mean. The leanest mixture around these parts --for sure.
For the newbies --- does the VW NA have automatic mixture control ? --- in simple terms NO.
The Turbo on the other hand does have mixture control --- "The Spaceship" according to Mark
Shepherd. ---- the air pressure servo "LDA" moves the control sleeve in relation to
manifold pressure. To us experimenters that LDA is a god send.-----we can operate it
manually from inside the Rabbit. Bingo mixture control. Too much rambling ? ---ok.
