Syclone AWD World record 8. 76/161 mph
This weekend we was at Kjula Raceway. It was a test and tune weekend.
Saturday was good weather, Sunday was gonna rain, so we only had one day to
tune. The track was ok, but not fully prepped and superglued, but it was
good enough for us, compared to the street :) We got 5 rounds, 4 of them
was 8´s Of course we are running E85.=)

As performance emerged from its slumber in the late '80s and early '90s, it
took on many forms. Cheap gas meant that the legendary V-8 was but one
option of many; technology developed in darker times meant that computer
controls and turbocharging were out of
their infancy and well into their adolescence. Front-wheel-drive
performance was available, as was rear-wheel drive. It was inevitable that
all-wheel-drive performance would come around too.
One of the legends to emerge from that second wave of American performance
is the GMC Syclone. The GMC S-15-based Syclone pickup was a 1991-'92
proposition only, wearing sheetmetal that had been around since the early
'80s. Still, the spec sheet excites: 15 pounds of turbocharged, intercooled Boost through a 4.3-liter V-6 to the tune of
and getting that power to four tractive wheels, was a two-fold recipe for
performance. Between the turbo's
inherent tweakability and the insane number of parts available for the V-6,
the sky seemed the limit. (Stock Syclones are said to have more guts than a
lighter 300hp Corvette, but an unwritten GM mandate that Corvette would
remain performance king was in place.)
The sticker for the Syclone was around $25,000, pretty heady money in the
early '90s, but access to Corvette-like performance for between $5,000 and
$10,000 less than the all-American plastic fantastic got performance fans
thinking beyond mere passenger cars. (Syclone's silly spelling was courtesy
of Mercury, which retained rights to the legendary Cyclone tag.) Chunky
ground effects, 16-inch alloy wheels and tires, and a color choice limited
to black sent an ominous visual message to those in the know.

raining again, so no testing :( This is Sweden. But when we were travelling
back home the weather started to get better so we decided to test the car
on the street. Guess who has a big smile on his face? :) All I can say is
that this V6 monster running on E85, burned all 4 rubbers 450 feet. This is
