turbo4.com's 4G63 Dragster. Just past half track, the engine expired sending the piston out the side of the block. In the shut down area, the oil coming out of the engine ignited on the hot header and lights up the cockpit. The car still ran a 7.09 at only 149 mph.
turbo4 4G63 Dragster - 6.57 at 205
Here are some runs from the start of the 2013 season for the turbo4.com 4G63 dragster. Thanks to Extreme PSI,
Fuel Injector Clinic, AEM, Airwerks, Manley Performance and turbo4 Race Engines for all of your help! Let's
keep running consistent 6.50's and 60's.
World smallest V12 engine
Apparently the builder's name is Yesus Wilder and he only used three
materials to build the engine. Stainless steel, aluminum, and bronze.
All credits to him.
GoPro HD Hero: Top Dragster breaks input shaft!
We try to make a qualifying pass for the Quick 16 race and end up shearing
the input shaft. I strapped the GoPro on the rear section of the frame, it
was neat to see the suspension working...also to watch the slicks get real
skinny during the burnout!

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 :)
Major Huge Announcement
This video is a quick update on the projects here on Jafromobile right now,
as well as a tour and history lesson on my latest addition. I'm always
hard at work to bring you all new material based on Mitsubishi production
and partnerships from 1987-1999. Also covered are what's necessary to
resurrect a car that's been sitting for many years. If it's got a 4g63, to
me... it's always worth saving. My channel now has 4 Mitsubishi-powered
projects in the works which should be capable of delivering tons of new
I'd like to welcome all of you from the forums. My history with Mitsubishi
began in 1997, and hasn't taken a day off since. Owning one of these has
been long overdue for me, and you guys have been a wealth of knowledge that
helped me along my travels. An asset to the DSM community, even though
this isn't a DSM.
9 second 4g63 awd Mirage drag race, Road to the 2012 DSM Shootout Compilation
The story starts on 8/8/12 at New Engalnd Dragway in Epping, NH. Ryan
Pelletier's 4g63 awd Mirage breaks in the 150mph zone, then he breaks his
rear end cover. He scrambles to get it fixed with only a week to the
Shootout, then the following Wednesday 8/15/12 he makes some passes and
figures out the driveshaft is bent and severely vibrating. Only a day
before the Shootout begins and he needs a new evo 1-3 driveshaft, what will
he do? Find out....

Jafro's 5th gen Civic Confession [SLIDESHOW] (sorry)
Why is that significant?
It's because on road trips, this car got 44mpg. I installed a DX motor,
but I kept the CX transmission. It got better gas mileage than a stock CX.
The female I acquired didn't travel light, either. It carried me from
Commerce Georgia to Dinwiddie, VA non-stop on 9.7 gallons of 87 octane with
the back seat stuffed full of enough luggage for 3 people. I drove through
4 states on less than $20 worth of gas.
That's 7mpg better than the Chevy Volt gets when its gasoline engine is
running. That's equal to the 2012 Toyota Prius for 1/10th the price of the
car, and I used junkyard technology that's 20 years old to do it. It still
doesn't come close to the 1984 Honda CRX HF at 57mpg... but it proved that
a random gear head with enough knowledge to put together his first engine
from broken junk dragged out of the mud can build a more fuel efficient car
than modern hybrid offerings that cost as much as 15 times the price. No
matter how you spin their efficiency, the $37,000 I saved would buy my
civic 407,000 miles worth of gas at $4 a gallon.
It was also hell on the streets because it was extremely lightweight with a
manual rack and no power options other than brakes. It did have AC, but
when it was off, absolutely nothing stood up to it in the short if you knew
how to drive it. Keep it above 3800 rpms, rev 2nd to rev limit & do
everything you could to hit the beginning of the torque curve in 3rd
(nearly impossible with this transmission) IF you needed to keep going.
From a roll it was nasty. When you're shifting, you're not accelerating.
Each time someone shifted, it would pull another 2 cars on them and just
seem to keep on revving for days. All it ever really needed with sane
driving was 1st, 2nd, and 5th gear. My second gear was the highway passing
gear. It was so far out of its gear range it was hilarious, and very fuel
efficient. I'd fill it up about once a month. It averaged 380-400 miles
per tank on 9.8 gallons with mixed driving.
So this is what Jafro did with a Honda. Some of you in private messages
asked me to make this. I'm sorry this took so long.
