    Rear wheel drive C900- finally!

    Some psychopath finally made a RWD 900. I like the FWD better, but oh well still interesting.

    I don't have ANY details on the car and the specs. Looks like it's pretty heavily modded and probably has a BMW 4 cylinder judging by the sound...anyone know?

    This rear-engine RWD 900 seems to be a bit more sophisticated.

    Agreed- I like that one better, but we don't have any videos of it.

    Nevertheless, it's not a bad job. Wonder what it handles like, and whether it's better than a standard 900.
    I mean, the c900 is biased towards oversteer to start with...probably uncontrollable now.

    Not bad, but American engine+ c900 doesn't sound quite right. I think the engine and suspension should be retained in a RWD conversion. Can't believe someone spent money on assimilating a 900.

    Know of any other rwd videos of saabs? Anyone? I'd like to see that rear engined one.
