Default Class 5/Sand Scorcher question

The box art number on the sand scorcher is 506 and I've seen a few others in the 500's. Does the first number, 5, stand for the class the vehicle is in? I ask because i want to use my own 2-digit number and if the 5 means it's class, I want it to be relatively accurate. If that makes sense, thanks for any help.

Is that a yes? I knew they were in class 5, but wasn't positive that was the reason for 506. So 528 would be an acceptable number for an 80's class 5 bug then right?

yes. a full class 5 racer would be very far from a stock bug. all aftermarket suspension, full cage, probably a full tube chassis, the works.

the super1600 class is actually closer to what the sand scorcher is, but its just not as cool as a full blown class 5 rig.

i had the luck to own a true class 5 (former race rig) years ago, and used it for dune bashing. TONS of fun.


and btw, yes your number would be correct.

So the scorcher isn't a model of a full on race vehicle from that era in that class? I've been looking through pics and found many modern class 5 pics, a-arm front suspension, little body, lots of tubing, not much VW left.

times have changed of course, so in the 60s alot less was available. at the time many Porsche parts were used (2.0liter engine, bus trans, heavier duty trailing arms etc......) were used. so still much less VW that anything else. yet still not really visibly different. if that makes sence.

Oh I see, the scorcher is modeled after a 60's race bug, that makes more sense. I was thinking it was 80's since that is when the model came out.
