In a surprising turn of events it appears that the collective wisdom of the internet has made a clear and decisive decision, and I couldn't agree with it more!

Dan, kudos to you an a fantastic suggestion. You have earned a turn in the driver's seat of quattromog if you're ever in the area.

I got really excited and made a logo.

I’m honored to contribute to a project like this in any fashion!

I better get up there for a drive! S-Fest West could be a possibility.

Been in love with the lifted Quattro ever since I first saw its photo being circulated. Thanks for raising the bar!

I'd probably be better of flying over to buy a donor car and driving it back.

Quattromoging in Leavenworth, WA

Postby the german » Tue Jun 26, 2018 11:14 am

For my birthday a few weeks ago I spent the weekend camping and tearing up old logging and forest service roads with my wife.

Image

Built-in breakfast bar = practical :rofl:
Image

Leavenwoth is a faux Bavarian tourist town on the eastern side of the Cascade Mountains in Washington. The town it's self doesn't do much for me but all of the climbing, hiking, and kayaking in the area make the region one of my favorite places to go play outside in the summer. There are also thousands of miles of forest service roads in varying states of disrepair to go get lost on, which is pretty fantastic.

There is one road in particular that I have been wanting to venture up for years, but until now haven't had a vehicle capable enough to deal with the deep ruts and washouts. Until now :D

About 1/2 mile up this section or road I found the fun stuff starting with a nice gatekeeper: a big old washout! There was about 1/4 of the trail left, a ~10' drop, then a few hundred feet of steep run-out mountainside below. Just past the washout in the trail was a deep rut from snow melt about 2' deep. Exciting!

Tractions was good in the dry and Quattromog handled it pretty easily driving halfway on the hillside around the washout.



Past the washout it was clear I was the only one up here so far this year. The trail was super overgrown with slide alder and other vegetation in places, which really just made it more fun.

Image

And some glory shots:

A thunderstorm rolled in and dumped a ton of rain in a short period of time, making things VERY slick and muddy while driving back down the trail. That was fine right up until we got back to the washout. No video of this as my wife was busy spotting me, but the car realllly wanted to slide into the washout. Getting past it in the wet was a "dynamic" move using momentum and the hillside, and still resulted in one rear wheel briefly over the edge of the washout.

Back down in town there was an all-german car cruise going on. Quattromog stuck out a bit among all its shiny, clean, lowered brothers :lol:

Image

At the end of it, I have to say that this thing continues to impress me and outperform my expectations.

The only issue I encountered in the whole weekend of beating on it was coolant temps getting slightly hot on long sustained uphill climbs, where I discovered the electric fans where not coming on. I jumpered the radiator fan switch to run them on high, but I suspect the root of the problem to be that the 20 year old A4 radiator is gunked up and not flowing efficiently. A new Hella radiator and fan switch were delivered Sunday and will likely go in next weekend.

My god I love this car. And my woman is impressed every time I show her photos/vids.

I will confess to an ulterior motive; because of your exploites, I intend to lift the Golf and make it into a quattromog-lite inspired Farmenwagen!

Time for some more incremental improvements!

First up is cooling. Coolant temps where getting a bit high on long uphill climbs the other week and the electric fan was not getting triggered by the OEM switch, which is located in the radiator. My theory is that the 20 year old A4 radiator was gunked up and not flowing efficiently. To remedy this I replace both the switch and radiator with new units from Hella. If I still wind up having issues, the next step is an external trans cooler.

Image

Next up is some more body protection. I found a "near miss" where a pointy rock nailed the bottom of the car right next to the rear brake line, which inspired me to finally install the HDPE armor I made for the fuel and brake lines.

Unprotected lines, just waiting to get hit:
Image

This is the stuff I used, which I picked up from onlinemetals.com
Image

Ripped it and beveled the edges with a table saw:
Image

I few riv-nuts later..
Image

Image

I used 6mm counter-sunk socket head cap screws to mount these, same as the aluminum skid plates. With these I also put some RTV on the threads to seal them since the holes do go through into the floor of the car and I would prefer to keep any water from coming up through.

Now off to test and see how it all works!
