I took the Bahaha for a ride today, havent started it in about 6 weeks, figured I will take it a lap around the farm, found a wet spot at about the furthest point from home, when it stopped going forward I tried reverse then didn't let off until I was on dry ground lol

Its running good!

It will be going on the road SOON! and off-road :-)

Hey Turbo
You must have been in texas to have good heat in a bug.I've never been in one here in PA that had decent heat.

The 2nd bug I bought the heat works well IMO, its not setup 100% right but when it was 20 degrees out I was comfortable , next winter I will have it 100% + I am going to add a electric blower to assist the heat, at low speeds or idle the Engine fan is not pushing heat as it should be like on a liquid cooled car, I see room for improvement in the stock setup, I realize it will never be as good as anything liquid cooled with a heater core... :-)

Forgot... they also sell gas heaters for the bugs that supposedly kick ass I will be looking for a good used one :shock: as a backup or pre-heater

I've never been to the Chicago area but I think your winters are worse than mine.The extra heat sounds like a good idea.How do those heaters work? Where do they go?

I have never seen one in action but I heard they work really good, I assume they mount in the trunk? They have a exhaust pipe that has to be run some place outside the car, from what I have seen they are like a modern furnace, they have a heat exchanger or a fire pot, they use a spark plug to ignite or light up, they have a fan to force air over the heat exchanger.
