4 ROTOR TURBO BMW [Queen St Customs]
This is the only footage so far of the famous Queen St BMW 26b Quad rotor
turbo drag car. It was running a little
off, but managed a 7.74 @ 188mph. I believe this was one of the first quad
rotor turbo drag car's in the world, but
im sure someone can give us more info on that in the comments section!

PB 7.19 @ 190 ROB NOVAK - 2L 4G63 DATSUN (TEST DAY 1/09/2012)
Jett Racing had their Datsun 1200 Ute out today doing some testing for the
upcoming Jamboree. The car behind driver Rob Novak, has only been getting
faster lately and smashed out a
personal best 7.19 @ 190mph on the final run of it's day. The transmission
was then removed and put in team owner, Collin Willshire's 2L 4G63
Mitsubishi Eclipse. Collin ran Australia's first 6 second 4 cylinder pass
with a 6.98 @ 197mph but sadly was not captured on my camera :( We will
make sure we get the next one. You can see both cars at the QLD Jamboree on
September 22nd and 23rd.

NEW 4WD WORLD RECORD - 7.41 @ 193 MPH - REECE MCGREGOR / HEAT TREATMENTS RACING - 18/5/2013
Reece Mcgregor has today reset his own world record for the quickest 4wd
powered car in the world. The team have been working extremely hard for
many years to break out of the 7.5 (pb 7.53) zone and today, absolutely
smashed it, firstly with a 7.45 @ 193, followed by the record setting 7.41
@ 193 mph.
Big congratulations on a lot of hard work which eventually paid off. The
team planned to release their Nissan 350z drag car once the car broke into
the 7.4s, and we'll be waiting patiently for their next move.

CRANKWALKED? 7-bolt teardown 1080HD
Now this is a story all about how
My bearings got flipped-turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute just sit right there
And tell you how I used to mix and burn my gas and my air.
In RVA suburbs born and raised
On the dragstrip is where I spent most of my days
Chillin out, maxin, relaxing all cool,
'n all shooting some BS outside with my tools
When a couple of guys who were up to no good
Started running races in my neighborhood
I heard one little knock and my rods got scared
And said "You put it in the garage until you figure out where..."
I Begged and pleaded that it not be that way,
But it didn't want to start and run another day.
I kissed it goodbye, because the motor punched its ticket
I got out my camera, said "I might as well kick it."
Crankwalk yo this is bad
Drinking metal shavings from an oil pan.
Is this what the rumor of crankwalk is like?
Hmm this won't be alright
But wait I heard knocking, grinding and all that
Is this the type of failure that should happen to this cool cat?
I don't think so, I'll see when I get there
I hope they're prepared for this video I share.
Well I pulled all the bolts and when I came out
There were chunks in my fluids in the pan and they drained out
I aint all depressed cause I seen this before.
I got my books and my wrench and we'll do it once more.
I sprang into action like lightning disassembled
I whistled while I worked and my hands never trembled
If anything you could say that this bling is rare,
and when I saw what broke I stained my underwear.
I turned off the air compressor 'bout 7 or 8
And I yelled to crankcase "Yo holmes, smell ya later"
I looked at my internals they were finally there
To sit on my workbench and stink up the air.

Here's the 48,000 mile-old 7-bolt I blew up summer 2011 after over 150 drag
passes, a half dozen Dyno sessions, 4 transmissions,
3 clutches and 10 years of hard all-weather use.
