  • Trans Am U2 Volvo

    Got the Volvo finished up as a possible entry into the U2 Trans am. This one is almost as fast as my 240z which surprised me. Not so far off the pace that I would enter it just for the sake of some diversity in the field

    Nice, the Volvo is great. Lots of diversity in the first couple of years, then those Porsches and Alfas seemed to fill the field. I’m waiting for the rules before deciding on building a car. The odd ones are hard to find.

      Yes. My only entries to the U2 have been the 911 and Alfa. I am interesting in seeing what the field is going to shape up like. I am assuming a lot of Porsches, so I will resist adding another one. My 240z is still the fastest, but this Volvo,came within 2 tenths.

      240z would be pretty neat also.

              Thanks guys.

              The car is 3D printed but the chassis is brass anglewinder. These smaller taller cars seem top heavy, and the more mass you can add down low is a big help. I tried some 3D printed chassis, but the cars were flopping on their sides far too much.

              I made the mistake of pulling out a 911, and rebuilt a chassis for it. It runs as quick as the 240 so now I will have to fight the Porsche addiction again.

                  That looks too good not to enter Dan. Wow. Love those old Volvo's. I owned several 242's and 245 Turbo's. Big Volvo fan.

                        I need to get a Saab body! Great picture, I’m assuming this is current vintage racing.

                        I don't honestly know but it's obviously period racing.
