Chirco Reviews

Awesome people, great prices, my personal favorite local shop!
Very helpful group with more than just the usual aftermarket parts.
Great VW products and prices, backed by friendly staff, and they are super knowledgeable too! I can't say enough good things about Joe, Frank, John and the rest of the gang. I've learned a ton from them all. Plus they make you feel like family every time you walk in the door. I wish more automotive retailers did the kind of job they do! Such a standout business, plus every year they throw an awesome Bugtoberfest celebration. I've been going for the last 5+ yrs and I wouldn't dream of missing it! Thank you for always taking excellent care of this amateur hobbyist!!!
I found Chirco while researching my Baja Bug project. You cannot ask for a nicer better staff who is always ready to give you technical advice on any project and help you find any parts you need. Their wealth of knowledge about anything VW is unsurpassed. Their willingness to help you through your project is amazing. This is the only place I use to get my stuff. My only negative comments which may not be all their fault is the time it has taken to get my parts, and the shipping seems really high compared to other places.
Great store.All around VW heaven.
Prices reasonable and they say they will match prices. I have never tried to see if they do. They have been able to get the parts I needed in good time if not in stock for a 63 bug.
Chirco Is the best. I had a little part confusion which was EMPI's fault But Joe is taking care of it no worries. My buck goes to Chirco. Thanks Joe
Very good, i dont live in the US and the shipping is really fast

Very knowledgeable parts people. They have everything one needs for a vintage VW.
best selection of aircooled vw parts in town. Also try Bugs n buggies if they dont have what you need
They have better availability on parts for 50 year old cars than some chain auto parts stores have on last year's cars. If you want stock replacement or to customize your bug go here.

Awesome company! FedEx misplaced my order for a couple weeks and the owner himself called me to resolve the issue when it wasn't even their fault! They definitely have me as a customer from here on out. Thank you!
Chirco's staff have been great! Being a new Bug owner, I really appreciate the time they take to answer all my questions.
Great prices and awesome customer service.
I want to start off by giving a big THANKS to the Chirco staff. I have only had my Baja a little over a month now but they all have been very helpful in everything I’ve needed. If I didn’t understand something they explained it very well. I took the Baja from something that hadn’t run in two years or so and got it moving again, I couldn’t have done it with the help from them and the extensive parts selection they have.
Love this place. They have everything you need for VW air cooled engines
Best shop in town know what they are talking about and getting my big road ready love these guys and will continue to shop local.
Have purchased thousands of dollars of engine parts, brake parts, transaxle assembles and front end assembles. Great place to purchase your VW components. All of my parts were right on point. Were shipped to my to my delivery point. Can't go wrong with this business!!! Al
They have always had exactly what I have needed from my 1965 Baja, to my 1974 super, always willing to give advice, the staff knows their stuff, and they have a large stockpile of parts, the only place I get my VW parts.
Awesome place! They have everything for the old school VW! Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable!
These guys really know their stuff. Joe is very understanding and so are all of his staff..Highly recommended for anything to do with VW Bug parts!

Product Review

V8 Rail - 4 Seat Long Travel Sand Car

Likes:

  • Very stable. Car feels very balanced. Car is almost exactly 50% front to 50 % rear weight (I have weighed it). Most of the weight (3100 lbs.) is in between the axles.

  • Feel very safe (cross bracing, etc.)

  • Manumatic setup for the transmission is very easy and fun. Don't have to worry about a weak transaxle.

  • Cornering - Turn the wheel and hit the gas.  It goes where you point. Power slide turns are fun too.

Dislikes:

  • Customer support from V8 Rail is almost non-existent.  They never answer their phone.  Rarely answer emails. Won't help solve legitimate problems with their product.

  • Wait time for delivery was ridiculous. Quoted 6 months by V8 Rail.  Build took 18 months. They habitually over-promise.

  • Radiator is undersized for application - Afco 80127ND – 19” x 24” x 2" thick. It was delivered with a single 16" 2360 CFM fan - it was supposed to be delivered with a 4000 CFM fan from a Mark VII. I upgraded to a 3000 CFM fan made by Spal (at my expense). I talked to Afco and Ron Davis about options for more cooling capacity.  Both said that the radiator I had was not sufficient to cool a 500 HP V8. Neither could offer suggestions given the space constraint. 

Undersized radiator supplied by V8 Rail
Undersized 19" x 24" Afco Radiator

  • Transmission cooler and engine oil coolers as delivered were undersized. As the sole source of cooling for a heavy sand car with a TH400, the 11 1/2" x 11 1/2 inch Long cooler is too small. I upgraded to a PWR oil cooler with integrated shroud and fan (at my expense).

V8 Rail - Car delivered with insufficient oil cooling capacity
Original Long transmission cooler on left.  Upgraded PWR cooler on right.

V8 Rail - Stock Transmission Oil Cooler made by Long
Original cooler installed in car.

  • Shock valving is not set up to handle whoops. I paid King Shocks to revalve them.

  • No fuel gauge and you can't see how much fuel is in the cell.

  • Car was supposed to be delivered with a TH350.  I got a TH400.

  • Car delivered without Park working in transmission.

  • CV's bind at full droop, and there is no provision for limit straps.

V8 Rail - Got CV Bind?
Car jacked up to check CVs at full droop. Too much CV angle causes CV to bind.

  • Rear suspension/driveline needs help.  Stub axle can easily work it's way loose.  CV flanges don't allow for enough axle plunge. 

V8 Rail - Inside CV Flange.  Not enough clearance for axle.
CV Flange doesn't allow for enough axle plunge.  Even though the axle still has plunge at all times, it beats on the head of the bolt holding the CV flange in place.  The flange is not designed with enough clearance.  


Old vs. new - bolt holding CV flange in place is mushroomed by axle plunge. The bolt on the outside CV flange broke off in the middle of Glamis and took out my CV. The top bolt shown in the picture is probably in the best condition of all the rest.


Washer used to hold CV flange to stub axle or differential output shaft.  Material is too thin and bends under torque. In my case, this bolt was loose once I got the CV off.  No evidence of Loctite. The loose bolt was causing the CV flange to move which in turn caused the brake caliper to drag on the rotor.

V8 Rail - Set screw used to hold stub axle in place

V8 Rail - Rear upright
V8 Rail Rear upright. Stub axle slides in here and is "held" in place by set screw shown above.

V8 Rail - Stub axle
V8 Rail Stub axle. Parts are all designed for circle track racing with very little travel.

Micro Stub Axle - Much deeper dish allows for proper axle plunge
More typical off-road micro-stub axles have a much deeper dish, and are all one piece so there isn't a bolt to get hammered by the axle.

V8 Rail - Aluminum CV Flange
CV Flange is made of lightweight aluminum that is easily damaged when a CV breaks.

Conclusion:

Stay away from V8 Rail.  They have a decent concept, but fail miserably when it comes to customer service and product delivery. Expect grossly underestimated delivery schedule and excuses about customers who drive bad or don't pay their bills.  Be wary of their lies and do your homework.

Rear axle assembly process
To start out we will start in the front of the car. There are basically 2 versions of the VW front suspension that we deal with: King Pin and Ball Joint. At a quick glance these two front beams may look very similar but underneath they are very different. Fig. 1 shows a VW King Pin front end which is usually referred to as early because it was the front suspension used from 58-66. It is easily identified by the shock towers. On a King Pin front beam, the shock towers will rise straight up from the beam and angle slightly back towards the driver. The shocks on this beam will bolt horizontally into the beam. The other way to identify this front end is to look at the attachment point for the spindle to the control arms. In a King Pin setup, linkpins are used to attach the spindle carrier to the control arms. Shims are used to set camber. A king pin will attach the spindle to the carrier by being pressed through brass bushings on both ends of the carrier and through the spindle. Most King Pin front ends will use a 5 bolt brake drum. The tie rods on a King Pin are always the small diameter ends. Fig. 2 shows a Ball Joint front end. Unlike the King Pin beam, the ball joint shock towers will rise straight up and curve outwards over the wheels. The shock will then bolt vertically, up through the beam. The spindle assembly is held on with upper and lower ball joints. Ball Joints will typically take a 4 bolt pattern drum. While it may seem cut and dry, the ball joint beam adds a variation in parts from 67-68. Ball Joint front ends will cover all the way until 1976. The variation consists mostly at the brake. There is a width difference on brake shoes with the years. 67-68 will use a skinny brake shoe while the 68 and up will use a wider shoe measuring 1.5" across. The easiest way to determine the year of the Ball Joint beam is to measure the spindle diameter. 67-68 will use the ball joint tie rods with the smaller diameter stud and the 68 and up tie rods will use a bigger stud. Also keep in mind that if you have any other beam configuration other than stock VW, for example aluminum or warrior-style front beams, then you will have a King Pin. These beams are unfortunately not able to be easily interchanged. The distance between the horizontal tubes on the front of the beams are different and therefore are impossible to swap unless you are comfortable doing fabrication work.

Pope, suddenly, remembered that a meeting of the Curia was going on, playfully shook his finger at the Carmelite and pulled on his mantle again. - Wait here. - he threw to the Carmelite, went out and locked the door of the cell.

If you resist, I will kill you. And if you are obedient, we will both have fun and go home. - I threatened her and for prevention gave a couple of resounding slaps in the face. - Okay, I'll be obedient, just don't hit. She said through her tears.

Now discussing:

She had never reached such a critical state in her life. Her bladder, although hidden inside the body, but protruded slightly forward, not fit inside her. Another hour passed, and then there was a halt again. Tanya thought about sitting down, covering herself with a backpack, and quickly reclaiming the sand.

It was already dark, and it was hardly possible to catch her doing this.
