Well i raced a volvo wagon today, a new ??V70?? i think, with a 2.3L 5 cylinder turbo. Up to about 80 km/h i had a nose on him, after that he pulled from me like crazy. Mine is a bone stock 90 5 speed, his was a 5 speed too.

yeah, i hear ya. those volvos can be pretty tough. the first forced induction car i ever drove was a volvo 850 turbo (same as v70). wow! dont feel bad man, i would hesitate to race a volvo turbo in my SC. a modded 850 R wagon gave my 500+ BHP Stealth a substantial run. I found out about the mods later, but from the outside, that thing looked completely stock.

Yea. I hate Volvos.
I started to race one from a light and had him from the start.
But then the wife started screaming a me...What are you doing?
and I backed off, but that thing was pulling hard.

if you want to race a volvo wagon, go find a 1984ish 240 turbo wagon, those things are big, ugly and slow as fudge... my parents had one as a beater car, i still cringe when i think of how ugly and slow that piece of **** was

btw, the new 5 cylander volvos are quick though

btw heres a pretty close car to what my parents had, only theres was a slightly less ugly silver than that beige
