Re: White 340 1.7 Martini

Hi Guys, So the next time i went to another track. 6kms long and very high-speed. Practiced all day there, got much fun and skipped the timed laps the other day. Falling into a high angle slide in a negative camber turn at the top end of 3rd gear mastered. https://img-fotki.yandex.ru/get/94189/58527...

Re: White 340 1.7 Martini

Hey, championship progressed to its second half. Participated in the third round on the yet another new track - car runs great. Outdoor temperature raises up so there is a lot of sand on the track, so the speeds are climbing up. I've managed 130kmh on the straight and that was scary. In my class, I'...

Re: White 340 1.7 Martini

Thanks, Mac. Great advice on uneven braking force. now when i think about it i might unintentionally left some grease on pads\disk. Sure i wiped them but this thing was all around the place. I reused all initial discs\pads\calipers. Now with a peace of mind that nothing is likely to fall off in the ...

Re: White 340 1.7 Martini

So i assembled spare strut back in place. Car runs on all 4 wheels now. https://img-fotki.yandex.ru/get/143523/5852728.b/0_13c53a_2cfd588_L.jpg Found bent caliper guides, so swapped straight ones from spare parts. Brake disk hit the pad and the caliper on its way out. One brake pad have a radial gro...

Re: White 340 1.7 Martini

ok, so it was not the stake nut)) outer bearing took a fair bit of stub axle with it. https://img-fotki.yandex.ru/get/96333/5852728.b/0_13b46e_1fc2ab7a_L.jpg https://img-fotki.yandex.ru/get/96333/5852728.b/0_13b46d_de6380f8_L.jpg https://img-fotki.yandex.ru/get/93917/5852728.b/0_13b46c_1ab4a0b2_L.jpg

Re: White 340 1.7 Martini

Cool SAAB, Mac. Appreciate your choice of rally car. Recently, one 96 appeared for sale not far from Moscow for like 4000GBP and i was even considering to have a look, but common sense won this time. Hopefully it will also stop me from buying an Alfa 75 or Giulietta (116). 4000gbp is half of what th...

Re: White 340 1.7 Martini

Re: White 340 1.7 Martini

Hi Mac, thanks. Quick question: i disassembled my strut and a set of spare struts. Top plate was cracked, as you said. I welded the cup for the bump stop back to the plate that holds bearing and a spring. Now a can't find the way to attach the rubber bump stop to its metal cup. The cup is fair bit l...

Re: White 340 1.7 Martini

Thanks guys, this helped me a lot. Dismantled most of the suspension today. Full report to follow soon. I've got two quick questions, while suspension is off: 1) i found suspension spare bushings, can you recognize where they're supposed to go: i've got 2 double-conical things, two like a a dumbbell...
