Turbo Lag

How bad was the Turbo Lag in the Group C Bluebirds and even the '86 PJ Skylines and the Volvo 240T. And was there any turbo lag in the Sierra RS500 or the Nissan GTR

I've heard some very scary things about the Volvo from people like Francevic and Bowe... a mate of mine is a absolute Volvo nut, and basically you needed your nuts strapped on good and tight, it wasn't pretty to drive

If the race going Godzilla is anything like the road going version, there wouldn't be that much of a problem.

The Group C Bluebirds suffered teribly from turbo lag. It was also a significant factor in the Sierras as well. You'd come out of a corner, flatten it and have 200hp available, moments later, without warning, you had 600hp. Hooboy!

I remember Bowe talking about the Sierra in 1992 in the wet saying it was basically on or off. Can't remember if he said when it came on though.
