    just found: May 97, Road and Track

    I found this magazine when i was cleaning some things out. It's got a road test of a 97 Dakar Sedan.

    Has anybody scanned and posted this article already? If not, then I can scan and post tomorrow night.

    I could not find anything via search except for the stats page in the FAQ.

    The summary pages for both the Dinan article and the Sedan test are already in the FAQ.

    Yeah the sedan is stiffer by design and the handling has always been a little better. As for braking... that is probably like performance numbers, dependent on the day, road condition, and heat...etc...

    Cool sedan article.
    One thing I noticed in the Dinan M3 article (the one that was reposted) is that they say the purple (daytona violet) car has 8.5 wheels all the way around, but you can see that they are ds1s, which were all 7.5's to my knowledge. Am I mistaken? Are there 8.5 ds1s made?
