A few years ago I was a die hard Ford pickup truck owner. There was nothing you could do to convince me that a better engineered or more utilitarian vehicle could be owned. I had a big 1990 F150 and it seemed there was nothing it could not accomplish.I got married and decided I wanted to spend a month or two in Europe opening up my mind with my new bride. She brought a 1987 Jeep Cherokee into the household by marriage and firmly resisted my requests to sell it, as we only needed one car between us. Let me tell you, that Jeep was easily the worst engineered car I have ever worked on a bad year for AMC anyway, since they were bankrupt and had just been acquired by Chrysler. She's a pretty strong willed gal, so I knew arguing with her was useless, and I had to hold back my tears when I sold my Ford truck for 4000 in order to fund the honeymoon in Europe. I felt like...Read More

Ah sunshine. Its something that many of us in the Northeast consider a commodity worth more than precious metals once daylight savings time come into effect. We regretfully turn our clocks back an hour and all take a collective hiatus from the track, while subsequently burrowing into our dens garages like bears, where we all hibernate until Punxsutawney Phil decides to break our hearts every year with six more weeks of winter. Its usually about this point we decide to dust of the car, scour Craigslist for better replacements, and ultimately dream about selling it all for some obscure 1 of 200 AWD diesel wagon that you cant get parts for anymore. Or maybe that is just us looking up the weird cars.However, at the Krab Shack, we decided to be proactive this year and spent some quality time going over the poor Jetta during the winter doldrums, ensuring that we had a ...Read More

2017 marks the 45th Anniversary of racing for Team Sahlens Joe Nonnamaker. Through these years, Joe has driven in over 400 races, on over 50 different tracks in over 30 different cars. After this much racing, many racers would be looking to slow down,,but not Joe Nonnamaker. As Joe races through his 4th decade of driving, he is looking towards another exciting year of racing. Joe will be driving for Team Sahlen in their 2017 racing campaign. This campaign will include 14 races in 7 weekend events. Additionally, Joe will be splitting his driving in these races between Team Sahlens Porsche Caymans and Mazda RX7s. Not only are these cars separated by 25 years in age, but these are two distinctly different race cars, one with the motor in the back and one with the motor in the front. But one thing is for sure, Joe will be racing hard in both cars to be the 1st to the...Read More

Last week I received word that the cage design was done from Samp;W Race cars. John had sent over the drawings and and a general layout of the cage. After a few minor tweaks, we gave him the go ahead and the kit was on their CNC bender by the end of the week. I drove down to their shop the following week which is just outside Lancaster county in Pennsylvania to pickup the kit and the chassis. The tubing all came pre-bent, notched , numbered and ready to be installed . I was very impressed with the facility and now that the kit has been programmed into their system, they can be duplicated for a very reasonable cost somewhere in the 600 range for 1 DOM tubing. If youre interested in your own cage kit, contact Samp;W, they have kits already available for several European makes and models. Powerflex Black Bushings Before the car came back from Samp;W race cars, we ...Read More

When we first heard about the lineup of products that Krona Performance had to offer for our 9-5 race car, we knew we had to get in touch. A few months later, the drtuned Racing and Krona Performance partnership was thriving, and our build was well on its way to reaching this years power goals. More than just horsepower and reliability, now the relationship with drtuned, Krona Performance, and eEuro has netted a new result. Krona Performance parts are now available on eEuroparts.com eEuroparts carries strut bars for both the NG9-3 and 9-5 For a performance oriented driver, this just simply wont do. Both the 99-09 9-5 and 03-09 Saab 9-3 can benefit from the upgrade, whether it is your daily driver or a race driven build like our own.
