For our regular Friday episode, Cam, Jason, and Brad are all back together. Brad is a little bit on the sick side, so it’s a little shorter episode than usual. Cam got some work done on his BMW, while Brad went to the Arizona/Utah border to test out the new Land Rover Discovery.

Question Tuesday includes guest from last week, Mr. Matt Adair. Cam starts the episode in typical C&T fashion with a pun so terrible we almost quit.

With regards to the Saab transmissions are glass question, I think that is more aimed at the older 900’s from the 80s. Those cars used longitudinally mounted engines. Just for that extra bit of sillyness. the front of the engine, were the belt drive is located, is at the back of the engine compartment facing the firewall. The trans is mounted under the engine, serving as the oil pan, with a chain transmitting power to it from the engine. These are fine in the NA cars, but the power levels of the Turbos, especially if they are breathed upon, are just a bit much for the trans life expectancy.
While I knew it had a longitudinally mounted engine, that’s the first time I’ve seen the layout of the transmission. I had assumed that the clever Swedes would have worked out a way to lower the CoG of the engine by placing the transmission/differential more alongside the engine with the driveshaft sneaking under the block. In fact I probably pictured more of a Citroen/Renault style transaxle in front of the engine – why else would you mount the engine backwards?
This probably explains why they did not carry on the rally success of the 93.Loading…
