We didn't have to wait too long!

just a few weeks ago we posted 'how long before we see an 8-second floorpan Bug'... well, it wasn't a long wait!
Congratulations to Tor Øyvind Skinnes on his recent 8-second pass at Kjula raceway in Sweden - just unbelievable!
His best time of the day was 8.60 sec, with a 1.30 sec 60ft and a terminal speed of 161mph!

This car still runs a conventional H pattern gear shift, pump gas and DOT tires. Apparently 'there's more to come', which is even more amazing!

We don't have a clip of the actual pass (yet) but here's another clip from last year. it really shows what this thing can do..
