Saab Rallycross  Two blokes from the Czech republic who decided to go rallycrossing with a SAAB 9-3 1998 Coupe. Follow us for more as projects and seasons progress!

All done! Except front stabilizer bar, the whole front right corner is (almost) brand new + new Aero dampers all around. Soon the 9-3 will be back on it's wheels and we can start working on the 900. Hopefully, we'll make it race ready before the season ends. #saabrallycross #saab #saab93 #saab900 #saabnation #rallycross #rally #boost #dirt #racing #motorsport

Here is the long postponed damage report. We still don't know whether was the crash caused by a mechanical or driver error. Either way, the whole corner is about to be replaced as you can see the damage on pics. Suspension is already in place, now we are waiting for wheel hinge to be shipped. #saab #saabrallycross #rx #rallycross #crash #racing

Here is what happened. All qualification rounds went ok, no big results but also no big drama and more importantly, not much to fix. For the final race we started from last (6th) position, jumped to second after the first corner and fought hard. Defending, attacking, joking at the right time. Everything was going great. Until steering gave up at a really bad moment on the track at the end of a straight and car just went straight to the barrier. Aaand that was it. Driver was ok, but the race was over for us and we are currently missing about a quarter of our car. I'll add more pics from damage report later. #badluck #story #saabrallycross #saab #saab93 #saab900 #saabnation #rallycross #rally #boost #dirt #racing #motorsport

First race of the 2018 season did not go well. Jumped from 6th to to 2nd position in finale and retired after 2 laps. Hint: It's not just a flat tire... More details, proper story and a cool video later. #saabrallycross #saab #saab93 #saab900 #saabnation #rallycross #rally #boost #dirt #racing #motorsport

Strategy failed. In a following Q1 we had an issue with a twitching steering wheel. Found out that in a grippy highspeed right turns engine was travelling too much to the side and rubbed against turned wheel which caused twitching. We blame the two engine mounts that we didn't replace... Bad luck. Still a new knowledge learned, so good overall! #saabrallycross #saab #saab93 #saab900 #saabnation #rallycross #rally #boost #dirt #racing #motorsport

Practice done. Car is working great, track is just plain hell though. Strategy: bring it home in one piece. Q1 in few minutes. #raceday #saabrallycross #saab #saab93 #saab900 #saabnation #rallycross #rally #boost #dirt #racing #motorsport

Engine mount fixed and we are ready for the race tomorrow! Wish us luck. #saabrallycross #saab #saab93 #saab900 #saabnation #rallycross #rally #boost #dirt #racing #motorsport

Time for a regular pre-race weather report. Looks like we're gonna be wearing #wets this time. Also, they are in a really bad condition. It's gonna be an interesting day. I'll be trying not to give the car any new shapes it didn't have before. #saabrallycross #saab #saab93 #saab900 #saabnation #rallycross #rally #boost #dirt #racing #motorsport

Today we finally figured out the reason behind the CV joint failure and gears kicking out on rough terrain... You would never guess...a ripped off rear silentblock on the engine. Race next week, so we just have to get the spare part, change it and off we go the last race of the season! #saabrallycross #saab #saab93 #saab900 #saabnation #rallycross #rally #boost #dirt #racing #motorsport
