yup, but why saab inserts? Koni sells adjustable inserts in various lenghts. But I guess those are expensive..
I'm just curious.

The saab ones are like 3 inches shorter than stock. Sensatrac is just the brand i believe, nothing to do with adjustability, and they are VERY inexpensive.

The Saab inserts are 2'1/4 inches shorter. Sensatracs are very similiar in valving to KYB gr2's, only reason I got them instead of Konis or bilsteins is they where in my not very big budget.

There was another drift event today. Car took on a new battle scar from a little wall tap, but she took it like a champ. Had a friend who is very good at many auto sports including drifting (Truly amazing driver) try my car at the drift event today, he did very good and liked the way my car was working. He showed me just what my car is capable of. He also taught me alot of technique aswell which is really helping.

Pics and video soon.

Do you think the extra windows in the back will automatically make it a completely different vehicle?

Well you are probably looking at a 150 lbs difference, at most... The suspension and everything else is the same.

Heck yeah. A stock 245 has ~50/50 f/r weight distribution, and with a few tweaks, corner weights can be pretty even. So not only are they sideways-able, but should be reasonably predicable in handling, I've done it at ~40mph in snow and it was decent, other than the open diff.

Got this to put in over the winter.

NPR intercooler, the large version, chop chop.



And I also got my hands on a parts car, its an 82 244 diesel, 4-speed. Payed $200 for it but the motor is mashed potatoes inside.
