Default All Your Base R Belong to US.

R you ready? Cause I sure R.

I've waited long enough. It's time. Got the T5 up for sale, currently shopping for a ...


>>>04-07 V70R with the 6-speed manual. Plan to mimick this:
>>>Front Wheel Drive/All Wheel Drive Mailer - February 2011 / V70 Project Car Update - Rob Arnold, Stage III Kit for R Models


>>>Essentially a 3800lb 425-450HP Wagon. The ULTIMATE Dad-Mobile. Color doesn't concern me. Currently looking into a red one at a >>>local lot, an 04. They just obtained an 06. Waiting for more details before I drive up again. I could go up tomorrow and and buy the >>>04, but the 06 sounds... nice. Hopefully I won't have to wait until February to do this, but it's a possible scenario I can live with. >>>Bone stock, the R is a 3800lb wagon with 300hp and 295tq. We'll keep it stock and well maintained until I pay it off and gather up >>>the funds to do the build over a vacation break. Final Goal date set at 10/1/2014. We'll see.



Changed my mind. Fell in love with an S60R.

See how long till that pic expires...

No no torque steer is very minimal, as is turbo lag. As much as 70% of the power to the rear wheels when cornering

I would hope Turbo Lag would be minimal with such a small system. Kenny I thought the car was rear wheel drive Torque steer is front wheel drive issue.

If you're talking to me, no the V70 is FWD or front baised AWD.

So when the project update says they are running 1.1 seconds quicker with the stage iii upgrade that means the quarter mile goes from 14.4 to 13.3 right? So that's also $6800 on top of like at least a $9000 purchase price? Sounds like a good deal

14.4 in the quarter with 300HP and AWD? My Mustang will do 13.9 with 260HP, but then again that wagon is a heavy SOB...

You forget this is a volvo. Sure I could get a civic and get close to 12 in the 1/4 mile for less, but I like my Volvo looks and quality and durability. Also, I bet the 1/4 mile will be closer to 12 even, but we'll see.
