                Yeah there's no way... Dyno queen status is pretty much over - I don't drive the car at over 17psi anymore, so it stays under 275whp. We did some low-boost road-tuning and dyno testing, and that was pretty much the traction limit in 3rd gear with the Quaife and type-8 primary gearset.

                The type 8's never came to the US, known in the Saab community as "autobahn gears" which raise my top speed to around 175mph.

                  If you guys need wheels fixed, go to Dependable Wheel Repair in Renton. I've used them a couple times now.

                  I just got back two wheels, bends fixed and lips polished. Done in an hour. I love these guys, super nice to deal with and great customer cervix.

                    Anyone run full GC kit (shortened housing etc)? What are your spring rates? Im about to pull the trigger and just wanted a little feedback. Thinking 550-850ish (Pro3 car).

                      550/650 on mine. I think it was $1400 when I bought it years ago.

                        Your probably running a rear sway, people run around 800# with no rear sway.

                          Yep, running a sway bar.

                                that is what i have heard too. Gonna get a last minute opinion from GC before i send the order in.

                                on another note, anyone know if this still exists?
