Thought this is quite interesting for Jon Bradshaw and Rob @ RIPS.


Yes its at sendai, and I know its some what downhill, but remeber no track bite, and a very very short run off at the end.....meaning you need big ($**' to go flat out there to run a 7sec there. Seems Drag is becoming popular in Japan again too, few new cars should also run low 8s / 7s soon (Garage Saurus now has the HKS 180sx) and Blitz have a new (ish) 3.4ltr supra with huge twins and NOS...only weighs in at 1068kg!

Anyway, Escort....
Car uses Hideck and Nos with T51-R. For thoes of you who don`t know Escort, they are perhaps the most famous pro drag shop in Japan. Have a shop in California. They have a few drag cars there too, check out the second image..



Their 3.2ltr Z.....got some power, supost to have circa 1200ps back in `93

I might be a little slow here but how much of that car is actually Nissan? Is it an RB26 (based) engine in a tube chassis with R32 style bodywork like a funny car or does it use the original chassis?

Pretty sure its a full tube car, I've been following their vids on youtube for a while now.

Great effort and certainly well deserved, I know how hard it is to get similar results.

The 60ft is killer athough 1/2 track mph is a little slower than the 240z had off 1.25 60fts and it has almost identicle 1/4 mile mph.

Well done guys!!

I wonder what it weighs???

Big congrats to them & thats going some:cool:
did they back the run up ?

looks like it probably still has more in it !

i can't see us getting more than a further 2 10/ths max out of ours unless we went full tube chassis . The current chassis is a compromise & is fairly fierce down the track with twist on each gear shift etc.

still time will tell :)
