Hello people I went to Trax (boy racer) car show the other week and took my 9000 Carlsson with some Abbott mods and managed to get a 6.9 sec 0-60 another couple of runs and could of got it down to early 6's not bad for such a heavy car.
Over here in the states boy racers, for the most part, aren't familliar with Saabs. Which is a blessing and a curse. Saab could certainly use the money they might spend on them to fund even "cooler" cars. But to be honest I'd rather not be associated with most of that crowd. In my city I've been forcing onto many of them a little well earned respect. Numerous boy racers, in everything from "tuned" Hondas to "suped" WRX's, have found out the hard way that toying with a $36,000+ Saab is probably not in their best interests.
I remember one peticular WRX owner who was a friend of mine. Perhaps the whizzy g-tech cannot detect wheel hp, or accelleration times accurately. But whether it is or is not accurate, I'm certain it can indeed tell more from less. He was very very unhappy that the $3,000 he spent on engine upgrades did not bring him more horsepower than a stock Saab. He was about 30 horses shy of the Viggen that night. In fact I took him for a ride in my Saab that same night, and within a month or so he had sold his WRX for a new BMW M3. At least this time it's European.
Anyway, low 6's from 0-60 in a Carlsson isn't bad, in fact it isn't bad at all. If the g-tech is anywhere near accurate, you're up there with my stock Viggen, and possibly surpassing it. Kudos!
It's a later shape 2.3 Turbo Kev MC, The main problem was traction spinning in first, second and in third a little, unfortunately there was no
1/4 mile timing just a 0-60 sprint, a few more runs and would of been able to better the time but the queue was too long!
