A few runs from Shakespeare County Raceway.
PAT 1 ran a very impressive 14.5 sec 1/4 at 96.51 MPH with a very steady
launch, Also managed 95.71 MPH, 93.98 MPH and 93.07 MPH Runs, Really close
to our 100MPH target, A nice hard launch should do it for us. The new
addition of an air shifter seemed to be far better than the previous paddle
shift set up and the addition of wheelie bars proved to work
in our favour, Its not as spectacular for the audience but we need them to
try break 100 MPH. Got to say a massive thank you to everyone that was at
the NSRA Hot Rod Drags, the attention and the reaction the van got was
amazing, When we started to build it I never thought in a million years it
would get this sort of reaction, and then the NSRA Hot Rod Drags Dirty
Dozen trophy just topped the whole weekend off.

9-second plumbers van vs 8-second WRX
Tony Rigoli Performance Subaru WRX racing at Heathcote Park. This car still
retains an AWD system but is using an automatic transmission vs one wild
Mitsubishi Van. The van is running a Nitrous assisted small bock V8 Chev engine.
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 :)
