This car was insanely fast. In this video we were following 3 cars on a 2 lane highway. Just before the camera was turned on, the driver had downshifted and was passing the other cars. By the time he maxed out 4th gear, we were approaching a turn, a bridge, and a pizza delivery truck at 130mph. The video doesn't do this car justice, it would haul ass.
Turbo Diesel Mini Bike
Start at 2:13 to skip the intro, or click here for a helmet-cam ride: http://youtu.be/U5XyrXEZKu8
This is an idea I've had since I was a kid, and after watching Mike Cberts Diesel mini bike video I was inspired to put together my own! The frame has been around since I was 4 years old! At that point it was powered by a 3 hp Briggs and Stratton and is a Fox corporation, Trail Bug probably from the 60's or early 70's. The engine is a copy of a 10 hp Yanmar single cylinder Diesel engine and the turbo is similar to the one on my Honda CX-500 turbo motorcycle. The engine runs at 3,600 rpm max and top speed so far is 39.3 mph.
Here's a description of 2 stroke & 4 stroke Diesel engines:
4g63 Balance Shaft Elimination - bearing modification
This is the first part of a two part series about balance shaft elimination on 4g series engines. This video details the bearings, the other video will cover the front case modifications. I've already got a low-def video of the front case mods, and I plan to re-shoot that one in HD when I'm in the assembly phase. It's linked in the video.
The balance shafts are designed to cancel out harmonic vibrations caused by combustion and the spinning rotating assembly. They may offer a greater degree of comfort to the driver and passengers, but with that comfort comes a price.
Often, when a 4g63 timing belt gives up, it's because the balance shaft belt breaks or comes loose and takes the timing belt out with it. When that happens, it can total your pistons, valves, damage the crankshaft, wrist pins, timing belt tensioner and crank angle sensor. Basically, it can total your motor. The balance shafts also have a combined weigh over 10 lbs and both are driven off the timing belt making them additional and heavy rotating mass. If you've got a lightweight flywheel but still have balance shafts, you have your priorities mixed up.
So here's what you do with the bearings. It's easy. You can do this at home. You CAN do it with the motor in the car, BUT DON'T. You must enjoy punishment to do this like that.
The end result will slightly increase your oil pressure, but usually not enough to cause concern unless you have a full-circumference bearing turbo, ball bearing turbo--with your oil feed coming off the oil filter housing. The head feed would be better in that case because it's regulated at 15 PSI.

11 second DSM at the track inside cam & outside. 1992 Plymouth Laser RS-T AWD
my 92 plymouth laser, first time at the track with it.
Been rushing fixing little things here and there, still realllllly needs a re-tune.
First run, I spun all through 1st and got out of it and back into it.
Second run was earlier in the night before it was so cold and the track was dewy, only a 1.8 60ft. Trap speeds are good for low-mid 11's for sure.. and the car has a ton more potential with a better tune, and a few changes here and there.
