this is the best.

The steering rack gives me all manner of ideas. Speed-related counter-/co-steer? Finally a FWD Volvo that can turn!

Or maybe let the co driver operate the rear wheels.

Or freak tailgaters out by swangin that azz...

Claymore, just route all of the exhaust runners to the roof and do a true "top mount" with one of these:
-no- torque, guarantee it!


Twin engined 850.. miiiiiight actually have to subscribe to this..

I like how they claim that is the smallest turbo EVAR!!

They don't really give the wheel diameters, but from the compressor inducer and turbine exducer, I'm willing to bet that this guy is smaller in terms of both flow and wheel dimensions - the GT06:
