            I wonder why he went with engine braking.... basically the transmission acts like a manual but since you don't have a clutch... it gets pretty annoying pretty quickly.

              Maybe he went with engine braking because it's going on the street a fair bit.

              It gets on the road.

                I dunno... in this world, it's confrontation to ask someone why - so if he doesn't answer, it's cool, he seems to get grief from the other 'tubers in Australia - so I can understand avoiding that...

                    • A friend and I replaced the timing belt on his jetta after it broke, and we replaced it way wrong, every valve had to have hit it's piston... we fixed the timing, started it up, and it clicked and clacked bad, but after a tip around the block, a little less, another, a little less, and on and on until it it ran quiet... lol!

                        I think that cars know - they know if we care and become fragile little flowers, the ones that we don't care about know as well - and those hang on to the bitter end because they know they're headed to the shredder the moment they do something wrong...

                          I think valve stem diameter and spring pressure play a pretty big role in how well an engine will recover from that kind of punishment, it was a fun experience, car ran for years afterwards, he sold it for $500 to someone who kept beating on it after we did... Surprised the hell out of me...

                            I really liked Rabbits and Jettas because they were so robust... but, like anything, they too could be killed.
