Well its been a while since we featured a members car so getting back into the swing of things this is going to be one of many. If you've taken a shine or special interest in a members car like we at VR6OC did with this one and think there car would be worthy of a feature then please drop me a private message.
This members car was picked for the shear dedication, effort, time, money and I guess many many man hours that has gone into the build.
The build has been followed by myself and probably many of you and I can say without question this car is going to be a rocket when finished. So here goes......

What got you into Dubs? After reading Max Power as a kid I quickly realised that there was a classier way of doing things then I discovered PVW.
Best Feature On Your Car? Turbo.

I plan to use this car on the road aswell as the track. I hope to enter a few sprints and hill climbs and I'm thinking of doing Time Attack next year. Expected power output will be 800 - 1000bhp.

Now for some Pics.

There's some serious work gone into this car and there's more to come. certainly one to follow. This car will be awesome when it hits the road and tares up the tarmac. Keep both hands on the wheel matty. haha.
Congratulations mate, you have an amazing car........
Unfortunately this is only a single day event and there's no camping. But feel free to come Along for the day if you like. It's a fair old drive for you pal but I've done the long run ones all in a day. Or if you take a look in the events section at VW festival in Leeds next weekend then that one is a full weekend. We (The Club) will be there from the Friday to the Sunday. In my eyes Tatton Park and VW fest are probably the best shows at the moment.
Let me know what you think and I can get something sorted for you for a pass.
They are great cars are can be easily upgraded! I've got R32 shocks, springs and ARBs to go on mine, straight fit and apparently transforms the car no end! Also pretty much all MK4 bits are cheap! Where else would you get a 204hp 4wd car for the price they're going for!
Excellent thread, i'm looking at buying a 4Mo and this has been very useful
One thing worth mentioning though, you should never mix DOT 4 and DOT 5 fluid due to DOT 5 being silicone based. According to Wikipedia:
DOT 5 is one of several North American designations of automotive hydraulic brake fluid, denoting a particular mixture of chemicals imparting specified ranges of boiling point.
DOT 5 is a silicone-based brake fluid (contains at least 70% by weight of a diorgano polysiloxane).
Unlike polyethylene glycol based fluids, Dot 5 is hydrophobic. An advantage over other forms of brake fluid is that silicone has a more stable viscosity index over a wider temperature range. Another property is that it does not damage paint.
Using DOT 5 in a DOT 3 or DOT 4 system without proper flushing will cause damage to the seals and cause brake failure. DOT 5 brake fluid is not compatible with anti-lock brake systems. DOT 5 brake fluid absorbs a small amount of air requiring care when bleeding the system of air.
Minimal boiling points for these specifications are as follows (wet boiling point defined as 3.7% water by volume):
Boiling point ranges 
Dry boiling point
Wet boiling point
205 °C (401 °F)
140 °C (284 °F)
230 °C (446 °F)

260 °C (500 °F)
