Datsun Sunny B310 Calder Park Off Street Drags 23.4.11
My 1979 Sunny, just through inspections for roadworthy after conversion, hits the track.
Completely stock & fully laden in street trim. 205/50/15s struggled for grip.
First run shows a 14.6s pass with wheelspin through 1st. Second is quickest 14.5 against a Volvo...
Pulled clutch at 1000 rpm and drove off. Bit of a noob, really needed to drop tyre pressure a lot more (as I found out). Max spd 99mph
Drove it 8hrs to the track, raced & 8hrs back, and the car held up beautifully.
Car has a 13s pass in it, especially after a few mods...
Few pics at the end.
Datsun Sunny - Collingrove Hillclimb Sept 2012
A short clip of my first meet with the NDCCSA at Collingrove in South
I'm a lot tamer than I used to be and haven't hit the track before in this
car, let alone in any other. I took it pretty easy as I drove the car there
and back, but I got quicker each time.
By the end of the day I took off about 4.5s.
I forgot to turn on the camera for my last run which was the quickest...
this was the next best.
Engine is a standard red top SR20DET, and the car weighs ~1060kg. This is
full street trim and a full tank of petrol.
Hopefully make it to a circuit this year for some more fun.
Footage is from a Blackvue HD recorder out of my work car so sound isn't
Why so SIRIUS? Kia 4g64?
This video assumes you're aware that various iterations of the 4g series
Mitsubishi engines are designated as Sirius I & II.
For detailed information about which engines qualify as which, visit:
There's also this at EvolutionM:
Good luck finding info about this using Hyundai and Kia in searches.
Wikipedia doesn't have any info about it grouped with the Sonatas either.
There is no question what this is, well illustrated in this video.
I apologize for the length of this video, but a lot of ground is covered in
a short time. Hopefully there's some information in here you may someday
use. I'm just trying to expose it because there doesn't seem to be any
real information floating around in the forums about this yet.
The car is a first-generation 1999-2005 Kia Optima sedan. It has the EVO
equivalent of a 4g64 2.4L. Before using any of these parts, do your
research, cross-reference your parts and know what you're getting into.
Using parts from this rotating assembly in a 2g Eclipse will require
aftermarket rods and/or custom pistons. This is information for those who
wish to frankenstein their builds, or save a buck... whichever.... either
one of those requires skill.
