Wheeler Dealers SAAB 900 Turbo Del 5
Den professionella bilhandlaren Mike Brewer har en budget på ett par tusen pund och hans uppgift är att hitta en begagnad bil med lite skavanker på. Som sedan hans topp mekaniker Ed China fixar till topp skick, och sedan säljs bilen med förhoppningen att tjäna lite pengar på jobbet. I detta avsnittet renoverar de en SAAB 900 turbo.
Saab 93ss vs Mustang Saleen
Just having some fun at the track. Not my best run. But I kept up with it until the end :) (Bandimere Speedway 5800' above sea level)
~ 700hp Turbo Saab, 312kmh (194mph)
Extreme turbo Saab + 300 kmh
Many viewers have misunderstood this video, so I explain it a little:
-Speed at finish line (1mile/1609m) is measured. Time is not measured.
-First Saab does 1st and 2nd gear with ~half throttle. Second Saab has limited Boost for 1st and 2nd gear.
- three extra seconds between 0-100kmh typically means ~30meters wasted. But three extra seconds used in speeds close to 300kmh, means almost 300meters wasted.
Here is equally powerful RWD cars (if not even more HP's) These RWD's are a lot faster between 0-150kmh, but these Saabs are faster from 150kmh-300kmh. You get the point when you compare speeds at finish line. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=urWWdomnncw
-A Saab 9-5 driver pushes a little too much throttle @3rd gear and looses traction. He lifts a throttle and pushes it back, but too much again and then he gears up 4th, a bit earlier than planned. (optimal is@205kmh).
Earlier that summer I broke one gearbox when pushing too hard on 3rd gear.
With new gearbox and at later event, I drove very gently on first three gears to avoid breaking it again. I pushed WOT for the first time on 4th gear @ 190kmh. You can hear it clearly on following video. Engine tone changes totally around 200kmh. Incar video is from 299kmh pull (at 1 mile race) Something happened to camera during the run. So I didn't get any incar video from a 305kmh pull. To see that run from the start line, please see my other videos.
Here is incar video until camera dies. Start is @1min. http://youtu.be/M4NNX4Ygnwc
Saab beats Corvette for a spot in the top 32 at Denver Pinks all out. Second run is old school Saab Sonnet vs. New school Saab 900. Ran 11.33 at 133mph a mile high!

Saab 900 ran 12.2, missed 4th gear, you can hear it at the end, had 11's that time, but could not get all the planets to line up for me...
