The YouTube team at "German Auto Parts" wants, according to its own statement, to overcome the "catastrophic time problems" of the 2.0 TSI VW Golf GTi remedy. And you want to create one of the coolest GTIs at the same time. And a sporty one RWD-GTi! That means a vehicle that is front-wheel drive rear-wheel drive is being rebuilt. But isn't a RWD actually a bad solution for a compact hatchback? The wheelbase is at least too short if you want the ultimate Drift king wants to be. Sure, with a BMW 1 Series as the M140i you can certainly have a lot of fun and drift well, but it is actually not really suitable for that. And for whatever reason, but with the new generation of the 1 Series, BMW opted for a similar setup as Volkswagen did with the Golf. That means either front-wheel drive or XNUMXWD. German auto parts believes, however, that the drive train of a Golf R32 with a few modifications is the optimal solution.
+500 PS and rear-wheel drive in the VW Golf GTi
They found a wreck with no interior and no engine and thus had the parts donor for the Rear-wheel drive conversion. But of course not only the front-wheel drive was able to complete the project "Disconnected" will. Important parts like that drive shaft and gear and the Exhaust had to be extensively rebuilt. If only because this special GTI has a heavily modified TSI with 500 PS and a torque of around 715 NM. At least that's what the YouTubers claim! Incidentally, that turned out to be a big problem during the renovation Transfer Casethat prevented the power from reaching the drive shaft. In the end it worked and the many donuts from the RWD Mk5 GTI prove this impressively.
