Saab launches with traction control on but S60R naturally launches much better with the help of AWD. With better torque and less power loss on the wheels against S60Rs AWD system, Saab with Abbott ECU just kills S60R until 220 kmh. Then R comes back into play again. This Volvo was my new purchase to replace the Saab 9-5 Wagon but I kept the Saab instead. My plans to make R faster was abandoned after reading some issues with the angle gear weakness issues and Volvo never addressed this expensive fix. Volvo: 2004 S60R Stock power of 300HP/350NM Saab: 2005 9-5 Aero Stg3 tuned to 300HP/400NM Modification List: ECU by Abbott Racing Delta (original power 250HP/350NM), FMIC, 3" DP, 3" Exhaust with no cat, forged pistons, big intake, dump valve.
