Saab 9-5 Aero vs track


The Hirsch suspension was well worthwhile, but I won’t bother with the engine upgrade: the car can’t put down the power it has now. It’s fine on the road of course, but powering out of bends on the limit with ESP off, you simply spin the power away. Track driving with ESP on is pointless.

Eventually, I gave in. If you’re going to uselessly spin power away, you may as well make a show of it. Just a little too much power left some splendid clouds of smoke in my wake. That, and passing nominally much sportier cars, drifting past the pits with the tyres howling, is sure to have impressed the judges.

I’m not absolutely sure I demonstrated the finesse HPC expects, but it was jolly good fun 🙂
