    The off-season isn’t giving the guys from JL Racing any time for rest. They’re busy building up a pair of new race cars that’ll wind up looking like 2008 Saab 9-3s but the makeover’s much more than skin deep: <blockquote>JL Racing have embarked on an ambitious project to develop two totally...

    This is big, people. And it’s going to be great, great fun. If you own, run, or work for a corporation that might be interested in providing sponsorship for this effort and gaining some great exposure, as well as having an absolute ball, then here’s your opportunity. —— The Saab 93 is one...

    Earlier this week I posted the results from Swede Team Motor's weekend racing. Those results didn't even begin to tell half the story, though. Following is a race report from Anders Johansson, one of the race directors for STM. It just goes to show what a tough gig racing can be. Ever...

    The 2000 Michelin Race of Champions video has recently surfaced due to a kind donation of videos from Dan Prescott, former public relations rep of Saab Cars, USA, Inc. For more information on the Michelin Race of Champions, please visit their website here. <blockquote> 12/2000 For...

    The SAAB Quantum IV was designed as a formula race car. I have provided you another detailed description along with a few photos from Wikipedia’s record of the Quantum IV that further define the unique history of this truly rare segment within the Saab brand. <blockquote> The 4th generation...

    This is a television spot featuring the Saab 9-3 Aero Sport Sedan, titled “Mind Race”. I believe that this television spot was made in 2004 because it appears to be similiar to the “Vapour Trails” tv sport done at that in the same year in Sweden, but I am unsure what market(s) this tv was...

    It's easy to forget that Saab had some high-level participation in motorsport until quite recently. Per Eklund won Pikes Peak only 5 years ago, and a year before that, Saab 9-3s were being used by the world's best drivers as part of the Race of Champions. The ROC is an event that draws...

    Race Teknik is the supporters group for JL Racing, based in Ontario, Canada. Last year I provided regular coverage of Swede Team Motor's racing season, something I'm definitely hoping to continue this year. In addition, I'm hoping to cover JL racing's season, too. Their schedule for...
  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Bit disappointed that a 3" downpipe I had my eye on is no longer available but in doing some research today, I noticed that Abbott will be launching a new 3" downpipe. See link below: http://www.abbottracing.com/2003/tuning/90...full_system.htm There's not much further info about it and it...

    Assuming (as looks possible soon, finally) I get a job again, I'm considering a full JT exhaust for my '97 9000 2.3lpt Anniversary (automatic, which may be relevant), with an Abbott ECU upgrade. I'm looking for a quicker/low revs spool up, ideally. Autos spend a lot of time at low revs unless...
  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I'm new to Saabs and bought a 96 N-reg 900T quite recently. I'm not a great mechanic, it should be noted. Last week it started making a sort of dry scraping noise from under the bonnet and I think I've traced the noise to one of the 'wheels' in the cam belt area. It sounds pretty unpleasant...

    After messing around looking for a 3" cat for my 9k Aero and concluding on the Catco CTO-8007 (I think this is the JT sport-cat anyway) I then found this little item for an extra $50 http://www.rpmoutlet.com/powercat.htm It ticks all the race-cat boxes (small, metallic substrate, free flow...

    Due to having to throw what ever exhaust bits that drop off away I intend to get the full 3inch JT system, but what cat to have SPORT or RACE. I do intend to tune my car ( especially as a Pug 206 can have 180 bhp! ), but is it really worth the £100 extra for the RACE cat over the SPORT cat...

    Has anyone tried this device on a Saab - It uses the ABS sensors in reverse ie it will detect wheel-spin and apply the brake to that wheel to even out traction via a little black box. Is this preferable to a LSD?
  18. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Does anyone have any stories racing against other comparable cars like BMW's for example? Somehow racing against another SAAB dosen't seem as interesting, but something like beating a Porche, Corvette, Mercedes..., especially a Beemer (BMW)impressive. Actually blowing the doors off someone...

    There is a team called Diners Club Racing Team running a 9-3SS in this year's 24 Hour Race at the Nurburgring. They seems to be doing quite well in qualifying so far. Third in their class and 34th overall, which is not bad considering they are in a field of 210 cars! Anyways, here is the link...
