My attempt at recording what an Abbott Racing 3" Exhaust sounds like on a 1999 Saab 9-3 Viggen. You hear the car start up, then the video switches to a bumper mounted angle for some real road audio.
It is the full 3" system from the turbo back.
Poor tools make for a fairly mediocre recording job unfortunately. Shot using a Sony Cyber-Shot digital camera combined with an Apple iPhone with suction mount attached to the bumper..... doesn't really make for a good quality audio recording. The iPhone just cannot handle the brutality :-)
Enjoy... the best I can do for now.
Are you afraid of the SAAB?
This video is really old, we've got the girl racin! Here's footage from
From www.thecarbeque.com We've worked out all the major problems with our
$400 SAAB, installed a set of EBC race brakes, put on the race Exhaust and the next step will be all the safety
equipment. We will be going to Alston Race Cars in Antioch to get the snow
leopard (our internal codename for the carbeque) measured for the roll
cage. They do amazing work. In the meantime we will begin to devise our
cooker box that'll turn the 900 into a real Carbeque. Until then, enjoy!

Swedens Saab Gripen NG JAS 39 fighter jet SHOOTS DOWN a Russian Sukhoi Su-35 in Marketing video
The Saab JAS 39 Gripen (griffin) is a lightweight single-engine multirole
fighter manufactured by the Swedish aerospace company Saab. It was designed
to replace the Saab 35 Draken and 37 Viggen in the Swedish Air Force
(Flygvapnet). The Gripen has a delta wing and canard configuration with
relaxed stability design and fly-by-wire technology. It is powered by the
Volvo-Flygmotor RM12 engine, a derivative of the General Electric F404, and
has a top speed of Mach 2. Later aircraft are equipped for in-flight
refuelling; most of the export aircraft have been designed to be compatible
with NATO interoperability standards.
In 1979, the Swedish government began development studies for an aircraft
capable of fighter, attack and reconnaissance missions to replace the Saab
35 Draken and 37 Viggen. A new design from Saab was selected and developed
as the JAS 39, first flying in 1988. Following two crashes during flight
development and subsequent alterations to the aircraft's flight control
software, the Gripen entered service with the Swedish Air Force in 1997.
Upgraded variants, featuring more advanced avionics and adaptions for
longer mission times, began entering service from 2003 onwards.
The Swedish Air Force (Swedish: Flygvapnet) is the air force branch of the
Swedish Armed Forces.
The Swedish Air Force was created on July 1, 1926 when the aircraft units
of the Army and Navy were merged. Because of the escalating international
tension during the 1930s the Air Force was reorganized and expanded from
four to seven squadrons. When World War II broke out in 1939 further
expansion was initiated and this substantial expansion was not finished
until the end of the war. Although Sweden never entered the war, a large
air force was considered necessary to ward off the threat of invasion and
to resist pressure through military threats from the great powers. By 1945
the Swedish Air Force had over 800 combat-ready aircraft, including 15

Thunderhill 12 laps in Saab 9-3 Viggen Turbo -- 10 Dec 2010 (helmetcam)
T.E.A.M. Racing at Thunderhill Raceway Park on 10 Dec 2010. This is Group B
But I'm not driving, instead riding shotgun in a faster driver's car. I was about the slowest
driver in B group so he let me ride with him to learn how to drive a faster lap. This car is a 2002 Saab
9-3 Viggen turbo on Dunlop Direeza Star
Spec tires. Big thanks to the driver for letting me ride along; my extra
weight probably cost him 5 seconds in lap time! His YouTube username is
