Copius use of the handbrake probably helps those Saabs out greatly, and they're naturally sportier than a Bonneville... so that helps too.



It'll be kinda awkward to use the foot-operated parking brake when you slide a Bonne around
It'* kinda of nice to be able to keep both hands on the wheel though.

^ either way though, with the manual tranny of the Saabs, looks like they sometimes have to have one hand on the shifter for the reverse moves... looks like they *grab handbrake* *spin* *slam into reverse*, one fluid motion I'd guess.

I kinda thought they were autos... Not positive, but just a guess. Otherwise that power braking would be mighty difficulty while touching bumpers.... Anyhow, great drivers and really enjoyed the vid!

What a good way to blow out you're tranny. Those cars arn't making it to 100K.
