“Project Racecar”

UPDATE: The VR6 Jetta had a major mechanical malfunction and has now been retired. Please still check
out all of the cool stuff we did to it.

Our latest and greatest project is a VW MK3 Jetta VR6, which is slated to become a competition vehicle for MecVT, to represent McMaster Engineering at external events.

A partial engine rebuild has just been completed, and most of the interior has been removed for weight savings.

Our goal is to have the vehicle competing at Autocross and other sanctioned events, by Spring 2015.
