Mazda RX3 (Godfather) & Datsun 1200 drag race.
Mazda RX3 almost hits the wall. The RX3 is known as the Godfather, it runs
a 20B rotary engine. The other car in the race is a Datsun 1200 ute from
Jett Racing, fitted with a Mitsubishi 4G63. Action was captured at Jamboree
2011 @ WSID (Western Sydney International Dragway) Eastern Creek, N.S.W.
PRO DAT 20B TURBO MONSTER - Brad Mcilroy's Datsun 1200 Ute
Brad would like to thank Jerry from Direct Clutch Services, Dan from
Promods, Brad P and Archie from Mazfix for tuning. This car will be
debuting on the track very soon, and you can come see it at the Jamboree
under the Mazfix tent on August 27th and 28th.

WORLDS FASTEST AWD / 4G63 DATSUN / 20B RX7 IN TESTING
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 :)
