turbo4.com Engine Explosion - GoPro in-car Footage

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.

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!

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 material. 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.





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.

Engine explosion contest- Engine blows up - no oil or coolant- motor explodes minnesota
Saw this at the Early Iron car show at the International Falls Bass tournament Aug. 28, 2010 in International Falls, Minnesota. In a 50/50 money-raising contest, spectators guessed how long it would take for the engine to blow-up in this mini-van with NO OIL or coolant with the winning time getting 1/2 the money raised. At about 1.5 minutes, the engine started threw out red hot connecting rods and wrist pins onto the trailer below the van, but it surprisingly continued to run! I think the final time until complete engine melt-down was 2mins 33 seconds . Sounded much worst than my phone recorded. You could literally hear the pistons grinding against cylinder walls before it seized. All in all, it was all good fun and the money raised from this "engine explosion contest" went to a good cause. Lots of people posting below that this old van should have been given to someone less fortunate, but it was pulled from a junkyard and likely on way to crusher. Definitely not safe for the road, but thoughts are in right place.

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 :) www.insidedragimport.com www.willowbankraceway.com.au www.jamboree.com.au
