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.

This 1979 Datsun Sunny looks to be in retirement after a life of hard
driving. It doesn't look too far gone. The patina is perhaps just about
