20B ROTARY ACTION! 20B DATSUN 1200 & 20B MAZDA RX3 - TNT 28/12/2013
On the final Test and tune at Willowbank Raceway for the year, Brad Mcilroy
was out testing his Mazfix prepped 20b Datsun 1200 ute as well as Russ in
his 20B powered Mazda Rx3. The PRODAT was testing some changes in the rear
end, keeping the newly added 10.5 inch tyres as well as some changes to the
4 link, and after a few tweaks had the car complete a full pass of 7.95 @
165 mph with a small back off down the deep end, a little slower then what
the car has run but a little more stable down the track. The Mazda Rx3 had
some issues most of the night but managed to get it down the track for an 8
second pass, also off its best, but once sorted should be back down to
where it was running before.
PRO DAT 20B TURBO MONSTER - Brad Mcilroy's Datsun 1200 Ute
Brad would like to thank Jerry from Direct Clutch Services, Dan from
Promods, Brad P and Archie from Mazfix for tuning. This car will be
debuting on the track very soon, and you can come see it at the Jamboree
under the Mazfix tent on August 27th and 28th.
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 :)

Worlds fastest street legal ELECTRIC CAR 1972 Datsun 1200 Whtie Zombie.
This car is based in Oregon... there are something like 18 hydro electric
power plants in that state! Hydro generation accounts for 58% of all
electricity in Oregon (Over 70% in Washington) and coal accounts for less
Only about 15% of the energy from the fuel you put in your tank gets used
to move your car down the road or run useful accessories, such as air
conditioning. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and driveline
inefficiencies and idling. Therefore, the potential to improve fuel
efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous. With an Electric Car it
costs just $1.00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance than with petrol at
$20.00 per 100kms.
EVs use between 1/6th and 1/10th the energy of a comparable ICE powered

DCS/MAZFIX RX7 - 7.87 @ 178 (SWANNEY PB)
The Direct Clutch Services/Mazfix team hit the track yesterday at the first
"Super Sportsman" event for the 2011 / 2012 season. Daniel Swanney of
ProModz was again at the wheel and completed his licensing in the car. He
ran an 8.2 early on in qualifying, then an 8.3 @ 178 before puncturing a
tire on the next pass. With kind donations on the day from a fellow Torana
racer and also from "20BKILR" owner Chris Hall, saw the car with wheels
back on the front and ready to go. A few tweaks from Archie then saw a pb
for Dan with a 7.87 @ 178mph on the next pass, just .07 off Jerry's pb. The
car then had 'traction issues' on the final run. :)
There is a lot more to come from this car.
