13s For $1300 - Project Bluebird - Episode 14

Here we go guys, the episode you've all been waiting for - Episode 14. We take the car for a run at Wilby, an 1/8th mile track in Northern Victoria, for a bit of fun and see if we can win a trophy. Hope you enjoyed the series. If I decide to keep the car I might do a few upgrades later on and see how much quicker we can make it, while keeping the budget low. Stay tuned though because after I tidy up the garage I'm going to start on my new project and it's going to be a big one. Edit: as it turns out this wasn't the last episode so check out the next videos.

13s For $1300 - Project Bluebird - Episode 15
Yep, we've pulled the Project Bluebird - 13s for $1300 Falcon out of the shed again to see what it'll do on the Dyno. I wont spoil the results by writing it hear, you'll have to watch the video to find out. note: I discovered afterwards that the Nitrous bottle was almost empty which would have made a huge difference to power.





13s for $1300 - Project Bluebird - Episode 13
Fitting the new speedo drive turned out to be surprisingly easy and it should give us the extra leeway we need to make a full pass down the quarter without hitting the speed limiter, or clicking it into 4th gear (overdrive) . We haven't removed the speed limiter, we're just working around it.





13s For $1300 - Project Bluebird - Episode 17
We take Project Bluebird, our $1300 race car, to Heathcote Raceway again to see how it goes on the quarter mile after the lastest round of tweaks. The budget still stands at $1249 and with two bottles of Nitrous at the ready we're trying for a 12sec pass. Will we make it? Watch and see.





13s for $1300 - Project Bluebird - Episode Eight Part-1
Here it is, the long awaited Part Eight of our 13s for $1300 project. But unfortunately it's so big that I had to split it into two parts. This is some seriously heavy duty tech and not recommended for the diy home mechanic. I reckon you should leave this one up to the professionals. Please remember, working on cars is dangerous, and this part is probably more dangerous than most. This video is purely for entertainment purposes, I take no resposibility if someone tries to copy what I've done and hurt themselves.
