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 :)
Nissan Project 370Z vs 1970 Datsun 240Z with RB26 Track Battle! - The Downshift Episode 54
Many months ago, Nissan asked their fans to help them create the ultimate
370Z track car. They called it Project 370Z. To put it to the test, Nissan
fans were asked to vote for a challenger to compete against it. They chose
a 1970 Datsun 240Z with an RB26 engine transplant built by Gordon MacSwain.
On this episode of The Downshift, we head to Las Vegas Motor Speedway for
an epic David vs Goliath battle between these two amazing machines.
The Downshift appears every other Tuesday on the Motor Trend channel.

9.17 SECOND 13B DATSUN: TEAM 1200 RACING @ JAMBOREE
Jamboree saw plenty of Mazfix cars achieve personal best quarter mile
times. Troy Spelman ran fast and consistent in his Street 289 13B turbo Datsun 1200 ute, and managed to record a new
pb of 9.17 in his 2nd consecutive final with all runs over 140mph.
Unfortunately as Street 289 is a DYO (dial your own) bracket, he went below
his nominated time and broke out, thus taking out runner up once again.
This car is getting faster every
year so look out as he hits the strip in 2012 congrats to everybody
involved with this machine.
MY MOM'S REACTION to Sentra SE-R w/ SR20VE swap
http://www.jordanwhitemusic.com - my Mom's reaction to my 1992 Sentra SE-R
w/ SR20VE motor swap; all bolt-ons and some internal work. While it's only
putting down around 250 crank HP, it only weighs 1,990lbs, confirmed on
scale, without driver.. Removed all seats except fronts, no power steering,
no A/C, no rear spoiler, no wiper motor or washer fluid box, no sound
deadening tar or carpeting, no spare, jack, lightweight Rota wheels, light
flywheel/pulleys, everything that could be removed without compromising
safety was taken out (except the headliner), front two seats, seatbelts,
dash and rear speaker deck, that's it. So it weighs as much as a lawn mower
