If you are checking Wikedkewl's channel for additional MNC info, he has copied a lot of my work, and revealed very privy information only shared with me. Do not endorse his work, or share information with him, as he is simply a 15 year old plagarist.
The Mid Night Club has been a hobby of mine for the past 4 years, and I've collected numerous photos and reports of them, as well as many facts. I'm the main contributor to the Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mid_Night_Club) page, as well as being the author of a Cardomain Article on them.
The Mid Night Club was, and is to this day, the most prestigious and elite car racing club that ever existed. It's defiant ignorance to the law made it an "outlaw gang", but it's morals and guidelines related to driver and pedestrian safety made it the most prolific and safest street racing club of all time.
When it disbanded in 1999 due to an innocent motorists death, it showed that even through the groups incredible need for "Maximum Velocity", that there was indeed a sense of greater well being, and sympathy for other motorists other than themselves.

600+hp Datsun dyno session
series of Dyno pulls, with a best of 607 hp
This was the first Dyno session where my car exceeded 600hp to the wheels. The runs were performed at Motor City Motorsports in Riverview, MI on a Dynojet 248C (yes it was calibrated properly). The backfires at the end of some of the pulls were just from the rev limiter's 8000rpm fuel cut - this introduces unburned oxygen into the Exhaust and burns any previously unburned fuel from the rich mixture prior to hitting the fuel cut. The engine is a stroked Nissan L-series, 3.0 litres with Diamond custom forged pistons and Cunningham rods. the head is an N42 with a fair amount of port and combustion chamber work,- ceramic coatings on the pistons, chambers and ports. Also has a custom cam grind from Elgin. The turbo is a GT42R with a 1.15AR hot side and a 4" Exhaust that exits through twin 3" oval pipes on either side in fron of the rear wheels. Fuel injection is a Electromotive TEC3r, and I did all of the tuning myself. There's a lot more, but that should give an idea as to what's in the car.
no water or meth injection
94 octane Sunoco pump gas
I've posted some additional details here:
Triple Weber DCOE's Launch
An old clip of my race prepped high compression L28, during testing with my 45mm DCOE's After a summer of tuning, I determined that my set of 40mm DCOE's were the best match, and the car was 3 tenths of a second quicker 0-60 with them.
