What ever became of this car Caarlo?


I sold it to a friend about 18 months ago, and he's drag racing with a dog box and slicks. He also improved suspension a bit and disconnected the front sway bar (improved launch with this mod).

Some recent pics:

Yes, the box is made in Argentina, from the same guy that made my helical set of gears.

And yes, they export to colombia, and many other countries... most SuzukiRD transmission parts are made in Argentina.

He did 10.22 secs (250 meters) with radial street tires Dunlop Direzza 195-50-15 (I did 10.74 5 years ago). Full interior, factory look.

On slicks the car was slower because the final drive is too tall (3.58). Next mod I guess it's a shorter final drive for the 8" slicks (4.4 or so) and I'm sure it will reach high 9s.

It dynoed 211whp @ 1 bar boost (200 KPA map pressure).

Quarter mile times (402.3 meters) should be around 12.5 to 13s.
