    It is a shit old Volvo.

    A shit old RWD volvo with a turbocharged 4.9ltr V8 in it.

    And it took me a week from start to finish, and cost, inc buying the car, less than most people on here spend on a set of wheels and tyres.

    Thanks for your concern.

    People saying this is shit yet I bet they don't say the same about Hux's Volvo because of its scene colours and wide ass wheels. I like it. It's offensive.

    Looking good, when you first started it on the older video it reminded me a little of a WW2 plane. Nice to be different and nice job.

    Good find! That's why it's just great fun to drift: rwd whatever+good torque+welded diff= sideways. So simple.

    Dex- Manual choke was pulled. AFRs are mid 10s on boost and 13s at idle, so not bad for a massive 4barrel carb

    How so?

    Why ??? you say all built for £1000 like that's amazing, iv seen scrap heap challenge cars built the same way.

    Huxley's Volvo is built for a purpose Chimp, has suspension work, cage, shit load of expense and I'm sure cost a lot more theres no comparison ? I mearly said it was shit because it has no point to it not because its a Volvo.

    Sorry forgot your "Stavros" Ill be a follower , wow you fit a big old engine in a big old car your awesome and made it sound awesome your my hero.

    cant see why people hate on this tbf. old volvo, big beefy engine, turbo on it, awesome!
    is there any point? not really. but is there a real point in "drifting" anyway? Its fun! i bet an old volvo with a 5L v8 turbo is quite fun aswell.
