Right click, Save As (think its the same on Opera)
Then open in Media Player or similar thats capable of playing WMV V9.

That worked... nice pics.

If its 3.38mb then Yep. Your probably on an old version of Media Player as it uses the latest WMV codec.

Aw, feckin' heck. More WMVs ... You drive the finest car known to mankind, but choose the worst video codec :)
PING Meatball Turbo - what was that package that converts WMV to MPEG? I simply refuse to pollute my Mac with Windows Media Player. I don't mind the half-hour round trip running up Virtual PC to run the software you recommended though! Grrr!

Guilty as charged on both counts ;-) I've actualy got around to getting a copy of Adobe Premier but the above was done a few weeks ago hence why its WMV

I'll have a bit of that as well please Carl. Can convert all the old WMV's to MPEG then.

I think it was tmpgenc.
It treats WMV files as ASFs, I think you need to rename them in some cases to ASF for it to know what to do with them.

Very nice - you're slowly driving me towards doing mine. I want!!!
a few Qs-
The disks and calipers - what make, where from? What pads? Did you respray it? Dis you respray it yourself? Where do you get your gearbox bits from?

Make = Faulks Performance Where From = Faulks Performance, i.e. Me ;-)
Discs are 325mm ATE Grooved Iron Discs on Alluminium Bells, discs secured to bells via aerospace grade alluminium fastners Calipers are Brembo Alluminium Radial Mount Dust Sealed 4 Pots with Internal fluid cross overs, basicaly the same as those used on most fast Porsche/Ferrari's, not to be confused with the lug mount Brembo's used on the Evo's etc as these don't have internal crossovers and in most cases aren't as ridgid. The calipers are mounted on Alluminium brackets which are again machined from blocks. Total fluid capacity of the calipers is only slightly greated than the standard single pot meaning the original mastey cyl is perfectly acceptable with only a slight increase in pedal travel. Calipers are joined to the existing hydraulic system at the wheel arch junction the standard setup uses by Braided hoses with zinc plated steel fittings. Hoses are secured to caliper mounting brackets.
Pads are Mintex 1166's Total increase in weight over the standard setup is about a kilo, which could be reduced by using a lighter bell and a drilled disc.

Yes. Car was stripped back to a shell, all underseal removed, chassis legs were seam welded, front crossmember was reinforced, shell was sprayed using 2 pack primer and paint in the original Saab 170B. Its visited many a gravel trap and only has the odd stone chip, the paints tough.

Their standard 1991 spec boxes (filled with Redline MTL) with GKN outer CV's and standard Saab inners. Average life expectancy is 3000 - 5000 miles, a box lasts as long as a clutch. Usual failiure is due to the gearbox casing flexing under power which slightly opens up the contact points between the gear teeth on 3, result is usualy a completely stripped third gear cluster and collateral damage to surrounding clusters, followed very quickly by a trip to the rev limiter and a smell of hot gearbox oil. I'm working to rectify this failiure point at the moment by bracing the gearbox casing to combat flex, ala the drop box's on tank transporters which have a very similar problem, doing it without increasing weight considerably is where it gets tricky though.

Noted :-)

This is probably the best thought out 900 setup I've come across.

Alright - it has to be asked - total time for the rebuild (hours) start to finish?

Keep us posted on where you get with this - when I do the rebuild, the box will get some special attention.

Thanks, took quite a while to develop to a level I was happy with. I've done repeated 150 mph to 0 stops on them and they do not fade, the discs get a nice blue hue to them, the pads smoke a little but they don't fade.

Rough estimate, Shell purchased in June 01, Car first ran in its current state around Bruntingthorpe Proving Grounds July 03. 2 Years and 1 month total build time.
Approx 1 hour per weekday and 12 hours per weekend. So 52 weekends a year, 52*12 = 624 * 2 = 1248 313 weekdays at 1 hour a day = 313 hours * 2 = 626 + 1248 = 1874 hours.
Factoring in the times I've spent on it when I've had no other work on its probably near 2000 hours. Thats Including all the kit thats been developed just for the car. Chargecooler system, Brakes, Fuel System, Aerodynamics. There so much on the car that isn't standard I doubt I can remember it all of the top of my head LOL. With this one done and all the diagrams etc. available I reckon I could build another one in around 500 hours for half the cost.

I'll keep you informed.
