Print in friendly format Send this term to a friend Saw Blades

Definition:
The wheel style used for most of the C4s existence.

The early saw blades face forward. This means they catch air from the outside and drag it inside.

The later wheels, 1990 on up, are mounted in opposite direction. These exhaust the hot air from the inside to the outside.

 Re: Saw Blades
Thats 88 and up they expell heat outwards.

The 84-87 blow inwards, and ive heard them more often refered to as Turbine wheels. (a variation of these wheels were also used on some Australian Holdens, still 16 inch, but not as wide.)

 Re: Saw Blades
I thought the early wheels were called 'salad shooters' while later models are 'sawblades'.?
