Re: Winter Challenge Rally

Just had a "duuurrr" moment. Pause 30 = 0.3 minutes = 18 seconds (not 30 seconds)
Just one more way to make a mistake!

Re: Winter Challenge Rally

A pause is sort of what it sounds like. You may come to a "Pause 30" and find out there's a traffic light. The 30 second pause adds time to wait for the light to change. If you get there and the light is green then you pull through the intersection and pull over and wait 30 seconds. Then g...

Re: Winter Challenge Rally

Lots of great memories from that event! We liked the overnight format and haven't tried it since it went to the new schedule. There are places to get beer in Barre at 2AM? If this is your first event, you will get lost (most experienced people will also get lost). Enjoy it and don't stress. Bring a ...

Re: Krizzie's white 900 Aero

"#9" primaries? cool! Have you had it up to 4400rpm in 5th gear yet? ;)
Can I ask how much it cost to build the custom set?

Re: Snow tires

195/60 and 185/65 are pretty similar diameter. But for a snow tire it isn't really a question of the wall height but more of a question of tire width. A skinnier tire will dig down deeper into the snow and potentially give more traction. Although on pure ice I've seen people successfully ice race wi...

Re: Craigslist / Fleabay / Blocket.se / Kijiji / Thread

From what I can see, its not even correct in many regards. For $150,000 in purported restoration costs, it better be absolutely perfect in every respect. I agree. For that kind of $ it shouldn't have badges, body parts, or headliner from a different model vehicle and things like the carpet and the ...

Re: STIG TO DRIVE THE CLARION 99 TURBO

Birdie, First, congratulations on being the first and last to post to SAABRALLY between the downtime :thumbsup: I've read though your thread on UKS, that sounds like quite an event! 1000 rally cars in one place? I bet there are barely 1000 rally cars in the US. It's too bad that Stig never got the c...

Re: HAREWOOD HILCLIMB

I was reading though this thinking, "That's some pretty tough competition in that class. I bet the 99 Turbo could benefit from a weight loss program(me)." Then I saw the bit about the 240 SlowVo service barge and thought, "well if he's thinking about towing with 'The Other Swede' then...

Re: Oil cooler problems?

I would start with a factory-recommended oil first. One possibility is that the thick oil is clogging the oil cooler as it cools down, slowing the flow through the oil cooler, and preventing more oil from getting into the oil cooler - resulting in the remaining oil in the system getting hotter. The ...

Re: Oil cooler problems?

Why are you running 10w60 oil?

I've never really felt too confident with those drain-plug installed oil temp senders. I forget why but I never felt that mine was reading correct. It may have been shorting against the skid plate? Then it got crunched by the skidplate...

Re: Shifter Bushings

The "reverse lockout pin" does more than make the reverse lockout work. It guides the shifter along the path inside the plastic plate on the underside of the shifter housing. You probably need to adjust that first. Fix that and then post an update. It could be other things but I'd start th...
