I'm researching the Volvo '94/'95 850 estate BTCC. Does anyone have the specs on this car? I'm looking for: weight, wheel/tire size, torque, bhp, gear ratios, final drive ratio. <p>thanks,<br>Glen

Sorry, I don't see any BTCC-related specs in the "800 Series Model Information" thread.

Torque was different per track. As far as I'm informed different exhaust manifolds were used and the velocity stacks of the 5 individual throttle bodies could be exchanged for different length ones to suit the torque to a specific track. Same goed for the gearbox. Different ratio's per track.<p>These cars did not use 8 pod calipers. The estate was the least technical version, the later sedan's were much more advanced.<p>Engine was placed against the firewall and on a sandwich carbon alloy "subframe" plate. With the dry sump oil system the engine was placed straight on this plate and was mounted a lot lower in the car. The X-trac 6 speed sequential gearbox was situated in such a way that the driveshaft ran in front of the engine instead of the back with the production 850's. Car's were right hand drive btw.<p> <IMG SRC="http://www.swededemon.com/images/Albums/BTCC850/BTCC850-Images/8.jpg" BORDER="0">
