Datsun 510 SR20de Motor
This is the first time the car moved by itself in over a year since I took on this project. I can finally see some daylight. The motor is an SR20de from a JDM S14 with VTC so I am curious if I will be happy with the results of a better header and some cams or go FI. But that will be much later down the road. Here is a small clip with open Exhaust. This week it is going to the Exhaust shop. Oh BTW my wifes car is in the shot too.
Dodge Challenger Slow motion Wheelie
1974 Dodge Challenger Slomo Wheelie vid. Santa Pod 2010 eurofinals. By Blackett Photography. Here the car is powered by a 572ci Wedge motor. Runs mid 9's @ full weight (3850lb +). To make the caltracks work you need plenty of front end lift, bump stops were removed and frames notched to get almost 6 1/2 inches of travel. Something Chrysler never designed that suspension for I'd guess. We've since improved the bump steer by replacing parts and resetting the camber / castor as the front has aftermarket parts and plenty of adjustment.
In reality it's difficut to fully eliminate without going to a strut type front end, though some people appear to have done it on stock stuff, it seems to be a common chrysler trait. Check out the superstock video's from the '70s and most Mopars do it also check out my other real time wheelie vids you see that the wobble lasts only a fraction of a second.
Thanks for the comments.
