Rob's 850 Track Car

Post  Admin on Wed May 16, 2012 7:17 pm

As some of you know, Rob has been very busy with his track car project.
The Red 850 belonged to Steve, (volvo-850-mad!) It then found itself as the centre of a project... to become a track car Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
This is how the 850 started...

Until Rob got to it!...



Then it all started to come together, after hourrrrs and hours of hard work...





The 850 then got sent away.. for a paint job..




when we went to see her for the first time, as a black 850... Rob had made the first set of vinyls!



In the few days heading up to the BHP show at lydden, Rob worked hard, with more Vinyls for his sponsors and CRAZY pink and green Wheels so it would stand out on the track!



The track 850 had its first ever outing at the BHP show lydden hill.
It was all together a great day!
The first re-map was a bit too erratic for Lydden , but we were able change to a more conservative map that suited the track more. The only real issue the 850 had was no grip...as with all Volvo's! Whatever the next mods going to be its going to have to get more grip!! Very Happy
The car suffered 6, 15 Minute sessions with no issues.
There is a video link, one of Kim's sessions around the Lydden track, please see the VIDEOS section on the main web page, www.volvo850.co.uk
