Taliaferro Drag Car
Showing some of the limitations of the NG900 Chassis used as a drag car.
There was a bit of wheel spin there so it was not a fast run but a couple
great example. MOst of the flex is in the Uprights. You can read on
trolltuner the suspension parts in use here. 2.0L Gt3071.64
Saab 2-stroke barn find
This car had been stored in a barn for nearly 30 years when I found it, and
with good help from my son and a friend organized a rescue operation in the
August 2012. Here is what happened that sunny day south-east in Norway.
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)

Taliaferro project drag car. GT3071 with a LSD.
This is the first Saab in the 11s in North America!
~ 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
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.
-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.
