Here is some more video from a race we did last month, the camera car is an Alfa GTV that runs in a class for street legal cars. It's the glorious battle for 16-18th out of 23 cars. OGREInc is in the Volvo 544 and I'm obviously in the 1200 Coupe. The Alfa drove smoothly and simply bided his time. OGREInc (his first race) and I flogged them for all they were worth but to no avail.

The Volvo is a PV544 they are like a 3/4 scale 40's American car. I think they are around 2200lbs with driver and the motor in OGREInc's car may be around 175hp or so.

The video shows me the suspension is still a bit unruly. Obviously the motor is reeeeeally slow but for now I'm going to install some fresh Koni dampers on the front. I am going to fix the exhaust and change the worn dizzy to help the power but that's not exactly going to net the kind of power I need.

My Dad owned a few PVs the 444s and 544 with an early P Duett as well
They are not small cars or cars you would think of racing with their
L4 OHV but Swedes do and they are like the Holden of Australia but
way more reliable and well finished cars.

This ohv engine has a world record for longest driven engine
last time I checked the owner clocked 1.75 million kms or miles

Neil, we have been eyeing this model for sale but really want a Duett
but prices are just nuts of late

One of the Finnish rally guys I know was getting something like 220 wheel horsepower out of B20 engines. Now you all need to stop all this talk of Volvos or Stan is likely to desert us permanently for Swedish car forums.

There's a reason that there is a Briggs & Stratton decal on the rocker cover of my Volvo.
Volvo Penta engines, like The-Little-Engine-That-Could Datsun A12, are renowned for their simplicity and durability.
No worries about yours truly abandoning the 1200 camp, Tom! The Volvo is a placeholder only until my 1200 gets out of the paint shop in a couple of weeks.

While I really want to see another 1200 out I will also miss the big hole the Volvo punches in the air. My fastest lap was when I got a run off corners and was able to draft............from Phil Hill to the sweeper I actually got an extra 100 rpm.

Guess I'm going to have to build an actually motor rather than running the mildy tarted up street motor.

I just want to be able to race on a track like those without a 3 day trip of towing a car. Love the video content fellas.

More 1200 race parts coming available for you two soon.
