well i took my car to the track today, really happy with the results, my car really feels strong and nice suspension. Well you can see on the video that i took a the 1/4 mile part and the Evo was behind me all the time, when i change to 4 gear the evo pass me very fast(like 120-130 mph), but before he couldnt pass me on 2nd and 3rd gear. I didnt know that volvo are so good at the track.<p><A HREF="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LxOEZtqZlEc" TARGET="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LxOEZtqZlEc</A>

Nice video! How long is that main straight? I should get some video of my laps around BIR... I only have a few pics so far:<br><A HREF="http://www.mnvolvo.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=321&sid=85dde659c6464f5714a9f14f32e20e95" TARGET="_blank">http://www.mnvolvo.org/phpBB2/...20e95</A>

I hope I can hit 130 now that I have a 3 inch exhaust <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> and maybe some colder weather next week will help too, maybe I can finally leave the AC off!
