I haven't posted on here in awhile since we turned in our R off-lease a few months ago, but today I got a chance to see the Speed World Challenge series K-Pax Volvo's finish 1-2 at New Jersey Motorsports park. If you get a chance to see these cars in action, take it. They are fast, stable, and they make the most fantastic turbo sounds under acceleration. The other cars in the race just didn't compare. <p>Randy Pobst drove the 2nd place car, then a few hours later got in a '360 Racing' Honda Civic and finished first in the Koni Challenge series (ST Class). <p>Now if Volvo would make a street version of that car, I might actually consider buying one again.<p><br>

I believe some parts of the original R motors still exist in the cars (though not many, obviously).

Re: (Warpedcow)

Mosport weather for the upcoming weekend: Friday (test day) warm and dry, Saturday warmish and wet, Sunday cool and dry. I hope the lads bring a good selection of tires and have a selection of suspension settings all set. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">
