240Z vs. the Ozark Mountains
Some [conservative] horseplay in my 1971 3.1L 240Z before putting my new race motor away for the winter. This is NOT a performance driving video, just some fun on an awesome road.
This is first time I've driven the road, so I'm a little more confident after 3:00. (I found it on Google Earth then trailered my car there.)
Some highlights, since it's not exactly a concise video:
1:55 downhill stretch, crossing Beaver Lake
2:40 more aggressive driving begins
4:00 scared myself a bit
4:40 traffic encountered
5:00 engine vs. open highway
Referenced walk-around video of my L6 motor:
My 240z on the dyno at Z bash
BTW i have an update video with the 3.1L installed. Just search "240z 3.1L Stroker (Beta Build)"
I put down a max of 130.5rwhp and torque at about 135ish. L24 tripple 44s Exhaust.
untuned and unmuffled idle, 240Z 3.1 stroker
Quick demo of the new race headers (Stahl), at no point does the engine rev above 3k rpm (despite how it sounds at 1:25). Other coincident upgrades include titanium valve spring retainers, single valve springs (outer springs only) that the cam was profiled for, and a crank/damper/flywheel balance for 10,000 rpm.
And yes, that's coolant on the ground during the idle portion. Evidently I didn't tighten one of the thermocouple housings all the way. Oops.
Between moving and other logistical challenges, I barely had the time to get the new race motor installed and minimally operational before sticking it back in the trailer for 4-6 weeks of storage.

A little vid of my FairladyZ after installing the triple Mikuni Carbs 40phh. She is a 1973 240z with an L28, ported E88 head, Monza Headers, Shnider Cam, Custom Exhaust and MSD ignition. It's an ongoing project and more goodies on their way ;)

450hp LS1 1978 Datsun 280Z
One of the coolest imports I've had the opportunity to see in action, this extremely streetable 1978 Datsun 280z takes it's first trip to the drag strip to do some testing. The car has an LS1 with heads, cam, and FAST intake manifold putting down around 450 wheel horsepower! Best 1/8 mile time was 7.11 for the night.
