325 rear with what front springs? he is runing 450s up front to start so................. that changes ALOT!

oversteer is like a really hot girlfried, as long as you know what to do with her your golden, if you freeze because shes so incredibly awesome shes gonna leave your ass in ditch!

Crash Bandicoot (andy), meet Mr. Spin (ben).

Doug, hopefully you won't put it in a ditch or loop it. If you do spin, hopefully you can save it before hitting something. But you might not want 400+ on the rear. Take off the rear bar regardless. Optomized front alignment will add front grip too. As with any big volvo, it should swap ends pretty slowly. Track the whore and figure it out. Should be fun.

That's awesome!

BTW Ben, oversteer doesn't mean faster, maybe to a point, but neutral would be better, especially for the streets in a daily driver, I'd think.

And, I LOVE STOPTECH! Mainly because I read that they actually balance out their crap to be good upgrades, not just larger hardware adapted from something else, such as the porsche setup. But who knows. Me likey! So, when are they going to start making stuff for 240s?

Depends on your course, if you are on a tight small autox corse designed for miatas and you have R comps on your big volvo you are gonna need some oversteer to manuever the tight spots so you dont loose all your momentum....


Thats true you usually want neutral handling to be fastest but at the limit typically I would want over steer instead of understeer because it will give you more options with what you can do with the car....

Just because its a 400 # rear spring doesn't mean it gives you a wheel rate of 400 #

well, I do have to admit, I am a bit nervous with rates that high. You do have to remeber a couple things: I am by no means a Mr Plow, Crash or Mr Spin. I am the Plow King!

I think Im going to stick to the 375's but in a shorter spring most likely. We'll see how it feels then go from there.

Oh I know, my point was that, as far as I know, this is mainly going to be Doug's daily driver, not an autox special... And yeah, I totally agree, I'd much rather have a touch of oversteer than under, ANY day, I'm just saying you don't want a LOT of it. Which is kinda how I interpreted what you were saying above, even though you were just joking, sort of. Hard to explain, . But we're on the same page, .

I didn't say it was. I do know it's a lot of spring on the rear of an 850. I rode with Andy before the fun ended.

What's the motion ratio, then? Don't tell me you forgot to calculate that...

You've touched them? hmm... 911 for stalkers right?

Thanks man! Im looking forward to trying out the Stoptechs. It'll be an intresting comparo to see if for street use how much better (if at all) than the porsches are.

I do love stoptech though, no doubt about it.

That looks like an insanely un-powdercoat friendly part, all those inside angles make it really hard. If you have an adjustable voltage on your powdercoating setup, turn it up a little for the second coat, and just spray like 5x what you think you need.

Oh my 17 pages, the lonest thread I've ever seen, car looks super neato.
Have you heard that Bow-Wow song, where he says...

"You ain't got it, you ain't got it, you don't keep it Dougy like I keep it Dougy little buddy, you ain't Fresh AZIMIZ"

Is that song about you?
