Glad you were able to get it sorted. Hopefully it stays on at the track/dyno!

Looking good Sean, Glad you figured out how to keep a belt on there. Seriously impressive build man.

The guys at trackside motorsports on N Interstate know what they’re doing when it comes to modified Volvo’s getting a proper alignment, check them out.

They did work on my F100 on the original alignment. Great guys, just really hard for me to get to and from and drop off and leave with them for a day or so. I live down in Tigard and work downtown.

I have pushed this thing to the side for now, its in one piece, has new tires on it, belt seems to be staying on at least for now. It has an oil leak from the new cooler or lines somewhere but I havent looked for it yet.

Its gonna chill there for now. Nothing going on this spring so nothing to really do with the car.

Working on a foxbody notch now, should be fun.....getting the treatment that the volvo should have but I was too afraid to cut it up. So its getting 315's, flares and everything from the maximum motorsports catalog. Keeping the 5.0 and T5 in it for now.

How is everyone doing through this crazy virus? Hope all my fellow TBers are holding up well and safe.

Sean

Is there a thread for it??? I assume you've seen Matt Farrah's old fox body?

You should let me "borrow" your KTM...

Here ya go!!

Yeah I have seen his car. I dig his podcast and what he does for the automotive industry, he has built an incredible brand. As far as the foxbody goes....I didnt like the bolt on look of the flares and the car never really did anything but go from shop to shop getting worked on. Matt even says it himself. He had nothing but issues with it and never touched it himself.

I should probably sell the KTM to be honest. My knee is ****ed from my crash and I dont see myself getting back to hardcore trail riding ever again.

I'd love to have a katoom to brap to my shop and home, we've got a 525exc we converted to supermoto and I've still got my 200exc, back in Alaska though. Maybe I can clean your shop floor for the next 100 years to pay off the KTM, haha.

Great thread too, reading it now!
