Finally ran a 10 last night, been trying for a couple of years now and we
finally got the car running right and put down two 10 second runs and
became the first ever 10 second Saab in the USA, car had a little more in
it too and we did this a mile high at Bandimere Drag Strip outside Denver
Colorado. Best run was 10.615 at 139.54mph. This was Street Wars, grudge
match racing, real street light and no tree. No times on the boards, but we
still got our time slips...
Yes, You Can Build a Sick Vintage Rally Car - AFTER/DRIVE
Ever wanted to go back in time, when screaming two-stroke Saabs were the
kings of rally? Find out how you can, with Bruce Turk, Saab jedi-master and
vintage rally dude.
On the car's specs Bruce adds: "It now has a 850cc three cylinder two
stroke motor that started life as a 750cc but the block was bored out to
850cc. It has Monte Carlo 850 pistons, a GT 750 crank shaft, a dual Solex
"Super kit Carb, lightened flywheel, heavy duty clutch (extra springs
added) fully ported intake and Exhaust
ports to rally spec II specifications and a Spec II rally 4 speed Saab gear
box which is very rare I might add... Oh, estimated HP is 60 BHP"

Viggen Automated Clutch
Power assisted / push button clutch! I had this setup in my -78 99 it was
a necessity after ruining my knee. Little harder to do in my 9-3 Viggen
but still nice. This is the basic first step. Eventually will be
microprocessor controlled with a pressure sensor in the pedal. Co2 tank in
the trunk and adapted a microswitch to the shift lever. Has adjustable
return rate with full speed down. Little harder getting used to it with
the twin disk Quartermaster 7.25" race clutch and superlight flywheel.
