What it Takes to Build a RWD VW Golf

What it Takes to Build a RWD VW Golf

Get Some Donut Merch

VW is known for making some iconic cars like the Beetle, Passat, Jetta, Polo, and Scirocco. But what most of VW models have in common is that they are FWD (front-wheel-drive). So what exactly does it take to convert a FWD VW Golf into a RWD (rear-wheel-drive) drift machine? Mike Day had a pretty good idea, he pulled the motor out of a BMW and then set off to figuring out exactly how’d he make that powerplant work in the VW Golf … the final result is pretty insane! We are going front bash bar to rear wheel driven Golf on Mike Day’s MKIII Volkswagen Golf.

Huge thanks to Mike and the rest of the ECS team for letting us film their sick RWD VW Golf!
