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 :)
'NITTO' 10.1 @ 154 MPH - NISSAN SKYLINE R34 - TEST N TUNE 07/08/2013
Trent from Mercury Motorsports was out testing his new engine setup in his
'NITTO' Nissan Skyline R34. The car is running on ET Street radials, makes
over 1000HP at all 4 wheels and shifted by a sequential gearbox. With some
more track time, you can be sure this car will head into the 8s with all
that mumbo behind it.
PB 7.19 @ 190 ROB NOVAK - 2L 4G63 DATSUN (TEST DAY 1/09/2012)
Jett Racing had their Datsun 1200 Ute out today doing some testing for the
upcoming Jamboree. The car behind driver Rob Novak, has only been getting
faster lately and smashed out a
personal best 7.19 @ 190mph on the final run of it's day. The transmission
was then removed and put in team owner, Collin Willshire's 2L 4G63
Mitsubishi Eclipse. Collin ran Australia's first 6 second 4 cylinder pass
with a 6.98 @ 197mph but sadly was not captured on my camera :( We will
make sure we get the next one. You can see both cars at the QLD Jamboree on
September 22nd and 23rd.
2 of the WORLDS FASTEST NISSANS - 6.46 @ 222 mph SCOTT PORTER - VQ35 V6 TWIN TURBO
In the Factory Xtreme final of Jamboree 2012, Scott Porter's Nissan
Infinity V6 VQ35 reset it's own world record yesterday with a blisteringly
quick 6.46 @ 222 mph and took the win. This is the fastest Nissan powered
vehicle in the world and the R35 Skyline (on film) of Mark Jacobsen is the
fastest RB powered vehicle worldwide. Mark Jacobsen ran 6.63 @ 211 mph off
camera to also reset his own world record as seen in a previous

One of the coolest imports I've had the opportunity to see in action, this
extremely streetable 1978 Datsun 280z takes it's first trip to the drag
strip to do some testing. The car has an LS1 with heads, cam, and FAST
intake manifold putting down around 450 wheel horsepower! Best 1/8 mile

On July 13 2013 AMS/Alpha Performance made history, the Alpha Omega became
the first R35 GT-R to run a 7 second 1/4 mile pass, officially making us
home of the first 9, 8 and 7 second R35 GT-R!
This came just two days after Omega reclaimed the ET and trap speed records
(8.25 @ 185mph) and was accomplished on the first and only pass Omega made
that day. The team arrived at the track, unloaded the trailer, prepped the
car and made a pass - Ivan Launched the car hard, it had a bit of wheelspin
and drifted towards the centerline, Ivan powered through it and got it
under control crossing the beams at 7.984 @ 186.14mph, besting our Thursday
night record setting run.

FASTEST STREET CAR IN AMERICA - Tom Bailey's 217 MPH '69 Camaro!
1000 miles, 4 tracks, 5 days, and 5 six second passes, if that doesn't
prove that this is the fastest street car in America (possibly the world),
I don't know what does! Tom Bailey and Steve Morris not only won Drag Week
2013, but they are also the first to run 5 consecutive six second passes at
