Andy Raw, founder and sponsor of the VWA/E drag racing class, founded TSR with the Subaru powered Beetle "No Remorse" which became the icon of Subaru engine conversions.
Andy went as far as he could with that Beetle running a top speed of 127mph on a 1/4 mile drag strip in 11.27 seconds. Always wanting to go faster, Andy had a dream of a Beetle with a V8 engine and so the new car was born.
