Gilbert, Matt and the rest of The Scraped Crusaders made their way to the 24th annual June Jitterbug in Niagara Falls last weekend and judging from the pictures had one heck of a good time.
Here are the photos Matt took at the show with captions written by Gilbert (the lead blogger over at The Scraped Crusaders) who’s not a VW aficionado but a stance lover none the less.
The best part about heading out to a show as a group is the opportunity for rolling shots.
Pics from the event once the crew arrived
Big thanks to Matt and Gilbert for the images and captions be sure to check both of them out at: flickr.com/deathlens and scrapedcrusaders.wordpress.com
loving Bailey’s jetta and the red mk1 and that green scirocco is posably the nicest ive ever seen! i have envy for all 3rides =HUGE PROPS FOR ALL
Anyone have more info on Matt Kavanagh’s car? I’m interested to know what his wheel/suspension setup is! Is he running spacers on the Aristos?
Whats goin on, thanks for the kind words about the car, im loving my current setup too!
Im on JOM coilovers, they’re basically rebadged V-Maxx, the fronts have 4 threads left, (i know, i should have put it down all the way) and the rears are all the way down. Neither front nor back have been modified in any way (removing helpers / collars / perches) but chances are they will be in the future.
My spacer setup is kinda funny, the rears are spaced out 15mm and the fronts, a whopping 3mm, looking to get 7.5 or 10 in the front soon, and maybe 17.5 in the rear as im just a few mm from being flush in the back.
Luckily at this point im not rubbing on swaybar on my axel (which is weird because most jettas/golfs do at that level) but i guess im just lucky. There are some minor rubbing issues when I’m at full lock, or when the car is packed and I hit dips in the highway, but hey, if you ain’t rubbing you ain’t dubbin!
Once again thanks for the kind words!
Thanks for the info Mat. The car is gorgeous. I just picked up some Aristos for my Jetta, and the fronts looked the same (didn’t notice the 3mm, sorry, haha) but your rears sit a lot nicer than mine do now.
How do the JOM’s ride? I’m debating between budget coils or maybe spendin a bit more and going air ride, but I’m not sure how I want my stance year round. Do you scrape a lot at that height in the GTA? Would you still rub at full lock without the spacer?
Everytime I see a jetta coupe, it makes me wonder where mine went.
the green rocco and red rabbit VRT are amazing cars. They belong to 2 of the Klammer brothers and are so clean its ridiculous. and Dan’s MK2 VR6 on the D90s…drool. I see these cars on a regular basis and I am amazed everytime….
Does anyone know any info about that black MK4 with the Porsche wheels on the roof rack i would like to know where he got the rack from
