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
~ 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 300meters wasted.
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. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=urWWdomnncw
-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. http://youtu.be/M4NNX4Ygnwc

Genuine saab intake
Car has been gone over basically restored by me. I always dreamed of having the 94 900 turbo havning fallen in love with Saab in 199-93 when i bought my first Saab. Red was always the car to have for me and when i found one i had to have it. if something wasn't right, i fixed it.
Car is tight and turbo pulls strong. The water pump started making a little noise, so i'm replacing that asap. So the car is basically good for another 100,000 miles with everything i listed...
windows are tinted and I put carbon fiber vinyl on the sides, but those are just cosmetic no value things in my opinion. The dash and center console also have the wood grain which is taste-full, but strictly cosmetic too.
Tranny was just flushed and filled with syncromesh Pennsoil. Synthetic was in previously, but Saab changed it and i would've had to flush with that stuff which was twice the price.
I religiously change the oil at 3000 miles and always, always run 92+ octane. Radiator was flushed with the idler pulley and will be again with the waterpump.
The dash and Speedo started to flicker and 2 bulbs burnt out, so i purchased one with 20,000 less miles on it (ebay) and replaced it. lights up fine now, and while i was fixing that i made sure i replaced the ACC lights.
Whoa I think i said too much. lol
Some negative: The hatch has some rust i started to repair. I stripped the rust and put rust inhibitor paint and just sprayed factory paint over it. Stopped the rust from getting worse and looks good from ten feet, but need addressed.
Cruise works, but doesn't go off when pushing in clutch. (Bad switch) So you have to tap the brakes before pushing in the clutch. After I got the shofterlinkage installed I have to hodld the shifter in reverse to take the key out. It whas also popped out of gear going in reverse, so I just make sure i hold it when goiung backwards.
I' sure it is just an adjustment, just never bothered me enough to fix it.
i recently purchased a Viggen, and 9-3 900 turbo, Selling two keeping Viggen and SPG. The 9-3 still needs work before i would sell it to anyone, but before i knew i was selling, this year I actual put this car in the Carlisle Import show. (didn't win, but I felt like it's worthy of showing to people with the quality of work)
I spent hundreds of dollars and time to get this car ready to sell.
Fixing Saab 9-5 Security System Problems -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
As I said in the video the owner brought me this car along with the supposed fix. The symptoms were an intermittent no start and a message on the dash indicating a security system problem. Apparently this is a common problem with Saabs of this vintage and the problem is usually linked to this siren/security module. Apparently the batteries go bad in the unit causing it to act up intermittently. In this video I show the steps needed to replace the module, it's actually a very easy job that does not require a lot of tools. So if you have an issue with the security system on a Saab of this vintage you might want to give this fix a try.
Here's the ebay store link to the company that rebuilds the modules.
