The EJ-22 ready-to-run weight is pretty much the same as an 0-200 so is definitely too heavy for a Q1. There is no doubt that a VW has limitations but from a power and cost perspective, I think it is a good match. Plenty of power there and certainly not over-working it. When built with weight in mind, a VW can be surprisingly light.
