CHANGES FOR TIMS GET-SOM 1200 UTE
11 March 2013We had great results for Tim’s little datsun 1200 ute last year with Tim debuting the car at the 2012 QLD jamboree taking out the runners up prize in ST289 class and at the last street meet of 2012 saw the 13B powered ute run 9.9@138mph on 98 pump fuel.
With the Sydney Jamboree not to far away big changes are underway with one of them being the rear end of the ute. The ute previously ran a 24½x8 rear slick with stock suspension but now have stept it up to ladder bar rear end, strange shocks and some 26x8½ slicks. The 98 pump fuel is also being scraped for the time being and C16 will now be choice of fuel with times looking drop into the low 9 second bracket.
NEW ENGINE COMBO FOR ALLANS PRO-369 FORD CAPRI
01 March 2013
It’s not hard to get bitten by the drag racing bug, Allan came to Race Solutions early last year with his street driven 351 powered ford capri for a dyno tune before heading out to a Wednesday night street meet. After that first night and running 11.1 he wanted more.
The following week the capri was fitted with slicks all round and headed back to the street meet and Allan got the 10 second time slip. Again with the drag racing bug bitting hard Allan wanted more so the decision was made to run the engine on some nos with a bigger cam installed and we hand ported the heads. The capri was off to the street meet again and has been most weeks and has finished off with a pb of 9.5@140mph.
A new engine combo has been built with the main focus being drag racing, the new engine will be running N/A for a few meetings before the 500hp NOS set up is hooked up.
