1972 Vega Wagon 1st Drive
Just got my 1972 Vega Wagon going after a lot of work. Currently running
open headers. It has a small block 350 and a TH350 Transmission. 12-bolt
rear-end and 5 lug front end conversion.
450hp LS1 1978 Datsun 280Z
One of the coolest imports I've had the opportunity to see in action, this
extremely streetable 1978 Datsun 280z takes it's first trip to the drag
strip to do some testing. The car has an LS1 with heads, cam, and FAST
intake manifold putting down around 450 wheel horsepower! Best 1/8 mile
time was 7.11 for the night.
Big Block Chevy Vega Wagon Wheelie
A little too much launch RPM resulted in the car hitting the wheelie bars
and staying there. I lifted to get the front end back down. I then got
right back on it and it jacked the front end right back up. I lifted again
and aborted the run. 4,000rpm launch which is still a full 1,000rpm BELOW
the engines peak torque! Crushed 4 primary header tubes on this pass.
Big Block Chevy Vega Wagon 8.86 at 153mph
This is the run I made right after the big wheelie pass (see my other vids
to see that run). This pass was made with 4 primary header tubes collapsed
to about half their original size as a result of coming down from the
wheelstand the run before. I still haven't raised the shift point yet.
Still short shifting at 7,000rpm.
