Volvo S60R AWD 300HP vs Saab 9-5 Aero Abbott 300HP 80-230+ Acceleration
Saab launches with traction control on but S60R naturally launches much better with the help of AWD. With better torque and less power loss on the wheels against S60Rs AWD system, Saab with Abbott ECU just kills S60R until 220 kmh. Then R comes back into play again. This Volvo was my new purchase to replace the Saab 9-5 Wagon but I kept the Saab instead. My plans to make R faster was abandoned after reading some issues with the angle gear weakness issues and Volvo never addressed this expensive fix.
Volvo: 2004 S60R Stock power of 300HP/350NM
Saab: 2005 9-5 Aero Stg3 tuned to 300HP/400NM
Modification List: ECU by Abbott Racing Delta (original power 250HP/350NM), FMIC, 3" DP, 3" Exhaust with no cat, forged pistons, big intake, dump valve.
Saab 9-3 Viggen
1999 SAAB 9-3 Viggen (2.3 ltr turbo) with 3" JT cat-back Exhaust and Saabflight ECU. Power gains achieved without increasing base-Boost above standard.
These third and fourth gear pullaways were recorded on a private facility (the limited length of which constrained the speeds reached)
0.38 'g' achieved in third gear.
NB. UK spec vehicle so speedometer reads in miles per hour.
Fatal high speed police chase - Unmarked SAAB 9-5 Aero vs Kawasaki ZX-10R *Translated*
***EDIT This video doesn´t show the crash! At 47:57 the chopper report the bike has wrecked. There is no pics of the bike after the crash in this video. Subtitles is only availible first 20 minutes.
This guy did only have license to drive cars, caught riding a bike can result in a 6 month ban. Speeding at 81 km/h over the limit (and more) will revoke your license for 8 month. Bottom line, many riders going fast on 1000cc sportbikes will run. Choppers are used rarely to catch speeders***
A Kawasaki ZX-10R fly by an unmarked SAAB. The biker has no mirrors and ain´t aware of he is being followed by the police.
At 14.30 the bike starts to pick up the pace.
At 17.10 he looks back and guns it. Soon he is gone and this unit doesn´t have the bike insight again. Although the bike is far away this unit continues to chase him for 30 minutes. More than 20 unites including a chopper were involved in this chase.
A heating debate started in Sweden if police acting appropriate due to the fact this was only a traffic violation. The biker died in the end when he slammed into a road barrier, the passenger didn´t suffer any injuries. The rider was just a regular chap going out for a ride on his ZX-10R equipped with a Racefit Growler
Nothing happens in the last 20 minutes, just radio traffic
Saab 9 3 custom front for $1.40....
Very cheap way to change the appearance of your Saab 9-3 1999 to 2002 or NG900 1994 to 1998. Look for my other Video on Headlight removal, cleaning and repair..
