WORLDS FASTEST AWD / 4G63 DATSUN / 20B RX7 IN TESTING
Willowbank Raceway held the 1st of the 2012 Top Sportman Series on the weekend. Reece McGregor and the Heat Treatments Skyline thought it would be a good chance to have some test runs in their worlds fastest RB26 powered 4wd skyline. The team worked hard all day and were rewarded with a final pass or 7.64, not far off their 7.56 record, although something tells me theres plenty more to come from this car again. Another car using the test lane was Rob Novak in his Jett Racing 4G63 powered Datsun 1200. The team made adjustments through the day and saw a PB 7.35 @ 187mph on the second last pass of the night, the final wild pass on video then saw a transmission failure but a happy team none the less. Final team testing was the Direct Clutch/Promodz Rx7, the car is 3/4 chassis and a running 3rotor 20BT tweaked by Mazfix. The team recently made adjustments in the rear and also in transmission and are starting to see results, it ran a 7.99 @ 171mph through the day, then later in the night suffered a leaking Boost pipe. Owners Jerry and Dan tell me they havent even started to push the motor yet, so another car with plenty more to come, and im sure that pb 7.80 will soon be slashed. These cars should all be running at the up and coming Sydney Jamboree at WSID and by the looks of things have some unfinished business they want to take care of :) www.insidedragimport.com www.willowbankraceway.com.au www.jamboree.com.au
20B ROTARY ACTION! 20B DATSUN 1200 & 20B MAZDA RX3 - TNT 28/12/2013
On the final Test and tune at Willowbank Raceway for the year, Brad Mcilroy was out testing his Mazfix prepped 20b Datsun 1200 ute as well as Russ in his 20B powered Mazda Rx3. The PRODAT was testing some changes in the rear end, keeping the newly added 10.5 inch tyres as well as some changes to the 4 link, and after a few tweaks had the car complete a full pass of 7.95 @ 165 mph with a small back off down the deep end, a little slower then what the car has run but a little more stable down the track. The Mazda Rx3 had some issues most of the night but managed to get it down the track for an 8 second pass, also off its best, but once sorted should be back down to where it was running before.
