The thing looks like its AWD.....dirt spitting out from behind the rear tires, sweet drifts, etc.

EDIT: Burns.......Its the red Viggen with a mad triangle nose bodywork job on the front. Ugly as the day is long, but it hauls A.

It is AWD. Full Prodrive 6-speed with active programmable front, center, and rear diffs.

The turned the B204 into a longitudinal configuration for this car. I think it does 0-60 in 2.5 seconds or something like that.

He ran it the year before without all the aero stuff on the front/rear. The aero stuff really helped him drop his times though, so although it's ugly, it was functional.

If I recall it was 50 something PSI of boost & it imploded the air filer

It was saab's rallycross car modified to pikes peak car.

If I recall the wings drastically helped getting traction however they didn't realize untill the race how much air it kept away from the brakes....

wasn't it at one of the SOC's?
