Three Fat Tigers

And There Was Crowned A New King, And All Rejoiced

I used to have a 85 240 back east and IMO having a RWD car in snowy climates teaches you how to really drive in snow. AWD cars are awesome, but 9/10 times the cars off the road around here are AWD/4wd, excessive confidence in snow is usually a recipe for disaster.

RWD gives snow drift new meaning.

Hi,

Thank you very much for your help here at RWD. My black 1992 940T (Monsey,NY) has now been back on the road for quite a while thanks to your responses. The day it breathes its last it'll be AAA+, but until then I'm enjoying the vehicle.

Thanks!!!!!

RWD gives snow drift new meaning.

Ten winters in Michigan after growing up in South Carolina and all I ever drove up there was RWD's. The Corvette was the best except that it sat so low it would bottom out and push the front wheels off the pavement so the steering was gone. You can guess what happened after that.

From then on I drove fullsize Fords and Lincolns. The Volvo is the first thing I've ever enjoyed as much as either a Corvette or a Mark V. And you're right. I saw more 4WD's upside down or piled into things than anything else.

The finest cars in the world are RWD - MB, Porsche, Ferrari, and BMW do not make FWD cars! (Not to mention a large number of exotics.)

All race cars are RWD - Formula 1 does pretty good!

FWD is inexpensive and easy to manufacture, and women can drive them.

Now, if I can just get all the electrical connections in the PV clean...

NOT ALL race cars. scca runs some FWD turds in racing...

Turbo 240?

Looking for advise on turbo set up for a 1992 240 n/a. I believe it's the 2.3L/b230. Wondering how much boost I can expect a stock bottom end to take, or a place for good cheap performance parts. Also looking to do a manual swap. Thanks
