Copenhagen Historic GP 2008, Saab 2-stroke on-board camera
Filmed inside Knalle Racing #34 Saab Sport 1964. This is from heat 2 of the
last days races. Includes a start crash where at least 6 cars where
involved. It was really slippery on the track with many cars overheating
and loosing oil and water.
Tul-Aris 2-stroke racer
The howling 2-stroke Tul-Aris racer is ridden in this week's MCN. The bike,
which features an 800cc parallel twin engine from a snowmobile, was built
by the head of R&D for Renault F1. Watch the clip to see what MCN road
tester Michael Neeves makes of the Tul-Aris. Plus, see this week's paper
for more on what it's like to ride and full tech details. Note: Apologies
for the sound quality in some clips.
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.
First start of a Saab 96
This Saab 96 -74 hasn't been started since who knows when and now we
finally got it running again. The video is taken in Roninmäki in
Jyväskylä (Finland) on summer 2006 and the guy starting the car is Ron.

Transmissions are a 4 speed Muncie 465 and a 2-speed aux obtained from
Advance Adaptors unknown model. www.AdvanceAdaptors.com . Engine is 212
cubic inch 170HP at 2500rpm 400lb torque at 1800rpm. Gets about 19 miles

How to drive a Saab two stroke, 2 stroke cross country
Tom Donney drives a two stroke Saab and explains how to use the "free
wheeling" approach to help avoid melting pistons on a two stroke Saab.
These engines were designed to run on 95 octane fuel or more. Today's lean
ethonal or low octane regular fuels can be hard on your engine. If you
travel from state to state your fuel choices vary greatly which can affect
your jetting choices. (Just as altitude changes your jetting too). I have
driven my 1961 Saab (and other pre-1960 Saabs) from Iowa to all points in
USA. Even into Mexico (with my family of 5) and Canada. My way is just "a
way", not the only way.
NOTE: Non Saab people watch this and make comments like "too lean", "timing
off" or "my two stroke runs all day at full throttle"
All I can say is good for you and your car/motorcycle/airplane/what the
hell ever. Come follow me across country in your vehicle anytime you want!
Check out this youtube video named "black 93 2-stroke saab on Dyno" you can see this very
Saab, which a few who seem to miss the point of this video and seem to
think is "too lean" (850GT, 1st design triple carbs, oil Injected engine
bored to 74mm) running on a Dyno and foggging for bugs.
Just FYI, I also own a Mustang Chassis Dyno (have ran over 100 two
stroke Dyno tests),
and have a box of Saab jets that I bet cost more that the people who keep
typing "it's too lean" paid for their 1st two cars! Plus I have had it and
others fitted with AFR gauges...so "NO...IT IS NOT TOO LEAN" :) BTW
Come to Dodge and we can take it, or other cool old Saabs for a spin.
Safe Saab'in, tom donney
