Yeah, sort of like stepping on your toe after you hammer your thumb.

Angeles Crest Hwy run today. Perfect weather and had the road mostly to myself.

Everything that frustrates me about this car on our shitty freeways totally fades away while boosting out of a corner. In today's application, the car felt totally dialed.

It's pretty sweet to have this 15 minutes from my driveway. "Traffic" was more or less limited to me, an unconfirmed sighting of someone who may or may not have been Magnus Walker, a couple late model Ferraris, and a dozen bikes of all shapes and speed inclinations.

Couple more shots from the same lookout spot, panning right to left.

I almost bought this car before the guy bought in Texas. He must of had it for maybe a month. Clean ass car. Found another one of ten (I was told 1/18, but 1/10 sounds better) LR 5 doors on the east coast. I think yours is a touch cleaner. Previously had a 9-5 aero..I thought that had torque steer. Mother of mary was I wrong. It's retarded now on skinny snow tires. Rolling on Konis, stock springs and the steering rack clamp/brace. 6pt waiting to be installed. ARB after that. Cheers!

Nice! Thanks for leaving it for me.

Yeah the PO had it for about 6-8 weeks, I think. Said he bought the car when his commute was 5 mins, then his job changed a week later, and the commute became 45 mins through Dallas traffic.

The PO before that was in Louisiana, and I remember him posting pics of the car on the Viggen FB page.

There were a total of 18 red 02 hardtops: 10x 5dr and 8x 3dr. (Source)

Yours looks great! I think you'll find the 6pt does a LOT to firm up the front end. Otherwise that's pretty much my setup: Konis, stock springs, SRC&B, 6pt, ARB.

Where are you located?

Both of your cars look unbelievably good! Congrats all around.

Makes me miss having a red SAAB.
