Speedparts 9-7x project!?!?

so i was looking around http://www.trollhattansaab.net/ and they had a link to speedparts' new project http://www.speedparts.se/proj/x/index.shtml



doesnt look like theyve done much yet besides the 100+lb rims, but i kinda like it, for what it is at least it looks agressive. i hope they go nuts on the thing and turbocharge it.

Paul

LOL thats a HUGE deal out of the states too because they dont have 9-7's over there. Thats a reallllllll head turner right there. Hell they dont even have many SUV's and no trucks.

I'm actually kinda interested to see what they come up with for it. A big roots-type blower would be pretty cool...although not really going along with the whole Saab/turbo thing.

at least it would have forced induction of some sort...but a twin snail V8 would peak my curiosity.

The shitty thing about those rims is that they actually sit in the wheel openings quite well...they are DEFINATLY too big for my tastes, maybe take it down 2 or 3 inches in diameter.

Imagine it having a really big set of "double 3 spoke" wheels - like Abdukteds or iwantaviggen's but made a bit bigger. That would be neat-o!

the rims look like 26" or maybe even 28"

Weve got a hummer customer thats got over 100k of mods done to it and he has 28" rims. They are 4 grand a wheel and 3 grand a tire for the ones hes got its sooooooo tacky tho.

I'm not a violent person....but some sort of physical harm should come to the owner of that car, at least a slap up-side-the-head!

they probably weigh at least a half ton with the tires on them. That is one of those cases where that car could be described as 'sick' as in, take it out back and shoot the damn thing in the radiator with a 12 gauge sick

Lol, its a fuckin SUV, not a coupe. Even if you put 100lb rims on it, its not like your trying to race the next Porsche or M3 in it.

As long as it looks good and has the power to tow and I can modify it to have better acceleration than it had when i test drove it as SOC, I would only want to get one to haul another project Saab around. Not to take to the local SCCA track.

Plus those rims look way better than the stock shit.

Aftermarket (non-rice) > OEM anyday.

I like the looks of it, but those wheels are just too large... for what you gain by having wheels that large there is just not enough benefit. If you are going to have a truck, it should at least be capable of doing some mild off roading and with those wheels it’s just not.

that's pretty cool. when are you going over again because i might beg you to pick me up a few things.


i think the wheels look great. they obviously chose that size because they fit the wheel well so perfectly. also, if you are wanting to offroad, don't buy a 9-7x. how about an SPG and lift it?
