Now that's a 240 sedan which isn't underpowered! Nice drivetrain work and custom suspension..... have you made braking upgrades, or not necessary for your purpose built machine?

I've never seen the Group A paint striping on a 4 door sedan..... but I like it! Looking forward to some video from this machine in action.

Oh look, a Volvo 240 drift car with grip and almost stock ride height

What spring rates are you using front and rear?

Very nice.

Curious to know what has been done to the axle as well.
Is that a Do88 radiator?

Tilton twindisc with flowcontrol valve and 0.028″ orifice. (We are probably changing to a tripple disc later on.)

Yes a do88 , but we are having some trouble getting enough air through it.
Maybe we try bigger fan and modify to dual pass.
