  8. It blew its turbo during practice. Didnt see it the rest of the week till raceday and it only ran the weather shortened course. He ran it (maybe not the same car) the first year I went in 2002 and had trouble that year too. I have a very low rest video clip of it in '02 but you can hear it, it sounds pretty crazy. PM me if interested.
     
  9. Incredible acceleration times! Thanks for the scans, and thanks to Venom for the additional pics.
     
  10. A little more info:

    2002 Unlimited Class Times:
    #/Name/Hometown/Vehicle/Picnic Split/Picnic Radar/Cove Split/Cove Radar/Bottomless Pit Split/Pit Radar/Finish
    93/Per Eklund/Arvika, Sweden/2000 Saab 9-3 Unlimited/1'57.0/116.1mph/4'52.6/105.4mph/8'32.8/111.3mph/11'13.2
    200/Stiq Blomquist/Orebro, Sweden/1984 Ford RS200 Evo/2'00.1/115.5mph/5'03.3/100.8mph/8'56.1/97.5mph/11'47.4

    Stiq won the weather shortened Hill Climb for Unlimited Class with a time to Glen Cove of 5'16.80. Best overall on the shortened course was Paul Dallenbach in the #98 Open Wheeler.

    Also to put it into perspective even more, the Pikes Peak Hill Climb record was set by Rod Millen in the Toyota Celica SuperSportTurbo in 1994 at a time of 10'04.06.

    Attached is the Pikes Peak course map and one showing elevation change a bit too.
     
  11. Now that I read the article it clarifies things some. It was the same car both times. I'm not sure about it breaking the 10 minute barrier. The uber-Celica also had the right conditions for such a run. Plus you have to be able to run in practice all week to challenge the record, not have your car breaking and such. I'd love to be there to see it do so even though I don't think I will.
     
  12. Thanks, thanks, thanks.
    The old Group B cars are still in great shape.
    Take that WRCs!
     
  13. I wouldn't get too crazy Homero, I'm having trouble finding stage times for this year for the SCCA ProRally cars, but the winning times for SCCA Open Class for '02 & '03 are below.

    11'52.6 - 2002 - Mark Lovell - Subaru Impreza WRX STi Open Class
    11'39.63 - 2003 - Mark Lovell - Subaru Impreza WRX STi Open Class

    The RS200 has had problems with reliability and weather conditions, but its not a whole lot quicker than the best of the SCCA Open Class cars, I doubt it would have much on the more advanced WRC cars even with it huge power advantage.

  21. goddamit ! Wh smith run out of EVO !
     
  22. Is this a screup, or am I just stupid and missing something here...
    On page 123 of the article, in the orange box, under "MAX SPEEDS IN GREARS" third gear is quoted as having a max of 78, yet under "ACCELORATION IN GEAR" it gives the car an '80-100' time, and fourth a '90-110' time despite that having a max of 97.
    Can anyone interpret this differently?
