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 :)

7.53 @ 185mph - REECE MCGREGOR / HEAT TREATMENTS RACING
Reece Mcgregor and the Heat Treatments R32 were out again today at the
Willowbank Sportmans meet. The car went hard all day, producing a new all
wheel drive world record pass of 7.53 @ 185 mph. The team says the car is
on low Boost and there's plenty more
to come out of it at the next meet.
SLO32 RUNS 8'S (NEW PB, JULY)
Jason Payne recently returned to the track in his Rear wheel drive R32
Skyline for a private test session. The car ran a personal best straight
off the trailer and finished with an E.T of 8.47 with a 166mph best on the
day. This RB26 powered Skyline is on very low Boost settings and is looking for 7 second
passes at the Jamboree once they wind it up.

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
time was 7.11 for the night.
The RED DEMON - 8 Second Talon
