Take a trip down memory lane by checking out the photos and videos from our German Tuning Tour we did way back in 2013.
Did you ever wonder what it takes to transform stock standard EVO into a 8 second drag car? In this video Andre details the parts and modifications required get a 4WD drag car down the strip at an incredible speed.

Paul's modified his exhaust to exit through his bonnet. Paul says this has greatly reduced the methanol fumes inside the cabin.
A Magnus mechanical fuel pump mounting bracket provides fuel for Paul's combo.
We are up early and on our way to the dyno. It's 3 hours drive away, so we should be tuning in just over 4 hours. Once there we will assess the Internet situation, if its fast enough we will live stream some 1000+HP runs.
We have just met up with Rene. We will be tuning his VW later in the day. On his old tune Rene has managed a bet quarter mile time of 9.7 sec. We are going to be retuning for a bigger turbo and a worked head.
We are up and running on the Klassen-Motors dyno. First up Rene's VW.
Things are starting to get interesting here in Germany. After fixing a few small issues we have just run Rene's Golf to 1035HP at 2.4 bar of boost.
The final figure for Rene's Golf 1127HP. I can't wait to see this go at the track. The final run was on 2.4 bar of boost.
Next up Aleš and his MK2 VW Golf running a 3.1L r32 motor.
As Aleš' motor is fresh Andre runs the car at varied light loads before commencing full power tuning.
Things got a little hot under the bonnet of Aleš' VW. Looks like the plenum burst, causing the injectors to pump fuel directly under the car. One fire extinguisher later and we can inspect the damage.
There is the culprit. A burst plenum. Damage aside from the plenum is minor.
Aleš and his team have worked through the night and repaired the burst plenum. We hope to get his vW back on the dyno this afternoon
With in the next hour and a half we will be live streaming a full power run of Paul's 1000HP+ EVO
Here you can see where the gasket has been leaking between cylinders.
Doors on, head on, drag wheels on. Ready for king of Germany tomorrow. first run will be in the afternoon.
We made it to the track. Racing begins sometime soon. The schedule is pretty loose :)
Paul's first run and a new PB. Traction was a huge issue, as there is no VHT track bite at this track.
