that's what the supporting member thing was for, i knew it!

seriously though, you bought an S60R?  are you calling it a project car for some kind of write off?  you hound you.

the haldex is maxed at 420bhp.  what are you going to do about that?

least were thinking in the right direction

I think thats setting sights low but whatever

its amazing, if any other new member said there going to make there car better than 11's it would be a arguement "re: the post about the drag seat and hpt joe comments"

by the way actually supporting members went to buy Rich a new camera.  The banners are funing this car.  So with that said clicking a banner or two will make the project car cooler.  100% of the banner money goes into the car.

what i believe you ment was clicking the banner to check out the great products for potential purchase does no harm, yet a side affect is a cooler car, and faster LOL.

To run a faster 1/4 than you on only 3 cyls

new system to shut down cycls to save fuel and environment during regular light driving? i am jk'ing

note: what is yer definition of a sponsor? money vs reward i ment?

........................power tripping admins luv the cawk.........................

Outside the traction trouble it takes a considerable amount of extra power in an R to be a faster car compared to a well tuned 850T5..

It's not all about the 1/4 mile times. ;)

Sounds good Chuck. Can't wait to see what you do with it. I am assuming the T5R will remain in the stable. Or is that being sold?

Everything is for sale, its just a matter of price. But no, no plans to sell the 850. And if I did I would probably part it out

$500 for brake setup, wheels and tires

thats a SOLID offer ;)

Josh, tell you what. 500 and you can touch my sac. You want to swing from it so bad cough up the dough.

You think you rub now, smack a 225 18 on there and see what happens

Says who??

All I know is that Haldex is limited by internal temperature, revelations which seems to be at it's max near a topspeed of 265 km/h (165 mph) ,although I have driven faster than that without any errors coming on, and according Haldex it can withstand 1000Nm of torque (737.5 pounds) which can easily be met with a 5000 RPM clutch dump.

Tilton diff pumps and coolers help alot but still a band-aid. But The haldex units them self can hold a decent amount of power. Its their robustness that sucks

Well, in any case I think the angle gear will be the first to go.

Also LSD in the rear would be a nice option at these power levels..
