Wheeler Dealers SAAB 900 Turbo Del 1
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.
Vintage. The Saab 900 | drive it
Drive It! took a real rarity onto the race track: a front-wheel-drive Saab
900 turbo boasting 300 horsepower with a peak
torque of 500 Nm. This Saab is a real competition car. Trimmed down to a
weight of around one ton it can feel at home on any circuit. Amateur racing
driver Nico Gasparatos shows what the Saab can do.
~ 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.
1985 Saab 900 SPG - Megasquirt 2 Extra Rev Limiter
Testing the spark cut Rev Limiter in Megasquirt 2 Extra on my 1985 Saab 900
SPG. The rev limiter was set to 5000rpm which was too low and I was hitting
it too easily. I have since raised it to 6000 rpm which is much better.
The day after I made this video my transmission exploded. 3rd gear sheered
off because of pinion bearing failure. Just before the video ends when I
release the clutch with the gearbox in neutral you can hear the pinion
