The salt was not in great condition, at the 3 mile mark, it was hold on Nellie.....there is an underground river that runs across the course, so in the afternoon, the water table changes, and the bumps become more prevalent. Once the amplitude of the bumps calms down, it is a bit less hairy to hold on. You have to drive through it, hold on and don't make any sudden moves.......
Transitioning to shutdown smoothly is a challenge as you can't just unload the throttle and hit the brakes. Gathering it all up and slowly controlling it to a safe stop is as challenging as it is to drive it fast.
We did a 147+ on a down run testing event gasoline, felt good to let it run out that fast. The 140 was an average early in the runs, we were trying to build speed evenly by adjusting boost, shift points, etc
The comment of the Hemmings blog author had a few mistakes, like the 93 Sport reference. I think it was accidentally taken off a fact sheet with Saab racing history referring to the 1959 LeMans 12th place finish. I think at first it showed the car was a 1991, and it was a 1981. Most people would miss those details, but not the Saabnet :-)
Howz the shifter working?
