That's one good power to weight ratio!  Assume turbo motor?  Slicks or "treaded" tires.  Looking forward to your continued progress

Really nice build, so far.  Nice work on those fender flairs.

 

That real GTI looks like an absolute blast to drive!

Thank you all, i'll try to add some new photos later. 

There isn't lots of changes, because work with those fenders require much time.
