The Defect III (Datsun 120Y) lives!
July 1974 Datsun 120Y 4 door Sedan, which is known in some markets as a
B-210 or Honeybee - it started life as a A12/3 speed Auto/H145 diff car -
it's now is a B310 (Sunny) A12/ smoothcase four speed and BW68 diff in it
as well as late model Australian 120Y sedan front suspension as well
the original A12 engine was seized... so I updated as much of it as I could
to Aussie late model 120Y Sedan mechanicals
Corolla sleeper - Nissan VG30 turbo powered
Scotty's KE30 Toyota Corolla street sleeper was built in a mere 4 weeks.
Power comes from a $60 wrecking yard stock unopened Nissan VG30 V6 3L
engine and Garret roller bearing turbo @
26psi Boost. Custom LPG straight gas
fuel system by Tunnel Vision, ZX 5spd box, R180 diff.
This was the first time out and the car was suffering from diff hop and
severe clutch slip in 4th gear running a best time of 11.4 at 127mph. Power
is transmitted through tiny 215mm 14in ET Street Radial tyres and was
driven to and from the track. The car should be good for 10s at 130+mph
next time out in full street trim.

Many months ago, Nissan asked their fans to help them create the ultimate
370Z track car. They called it Project 370Z. To put it to the test, Nissan
fans were asked to vote for a challenger to compete against it. They chose
a 1970 Datsun 240Z with an RB26 engine transplant built by Gordon MacSwain.
On this episode of The Downshift, we head to Las Vegas Motor Speedway for
an epic David vs Goliath battle between these two amazing machines.
The Downshift appears every other Tuesday on the Motor Trend channel.
