Saab gets a workout.

Update by Per Schroeder to the Saab 92x Linear project car
Dec 12, 2006

Since our new MINI is still just a gleam in our technical editor’s eye, we took the sports family truckster Saabaru out to a NCCC Corvette autocross in Green Cove Springs. While the course was more suited to a car with more power, like a Corvette (coughcompensatingcough) we had a blast, the car hustled through the slaloms with a near neutral attitude that could be changed to oversteer with a lift of the throttle or understeer with a little more gas. While FTD was set at a 44-second smoker by a uber-fast boosted Miata on 245mm wide Hoosiers, our street tire wagon managed a 49 second run.

We’ll be using the Saab for some upcoming tire tests of ultra high performance tires, including the Bridgestone RE01-R, the Falken Azenis RT-615, the Advan Neova and the Federal 595RS.
