new GT3- finally

Post by bavclt » Sun May 28, 2017 9:41 pm

We are taking Goran Nyberg's new GT3 Volvo to the chassis dyno tomorrow and to VIR for testing on Wednesday and Thursday! Wow, over a year building this puppy. I'll try to post some pics after it all works!

Sorry, no video. Great test, no major issues. Couple of seconds off of track record for the first time on the track and 83 degrees. Will at least try to get some pics up. Wish my car had any hope of going as good as this one will! The Majors weekend at Roebling Road will be the debut.

Very cool! That's what I love about club racing. I like all the unique cars! Great to see some new build GT3 cars come out!
And hence why I have a rotary Miata not an RX7. Dare to be different. ;)

Mr. Nyberg had to have a Volvo-a P1800 at that! Hard to believe this thing once was a championship winning NASCAR Goodies Dash Pontiac. I am starting my new car with a sister chassis, but will have Volvo S40 bodywork.
