  1. Since the trans is only 17” long, and the engine is 24” I have about a foot of open space behind me. So I am cutting it out.
  2. I have a 2340cc (90x92) that was in a 521 that I raced several years ago. I’m starting with an L20, and I will put the bigger one in when I get it sorted out. See Project drag 521.
  3. ATI made the mate up possible. The torque converter was $1300 alone, so there’s no turning back now.
  4. Rear end mounts were total shit. So I cut them out and made new ones. Including making a fixture to redrill housing flanges.
  5. Rear wheels were 14 inches wide. Too wide for a 4 banger. Narrowed 5 inches and welded up.
  6. Where to begin. I've been racing the SBC powered 280Z, every other year, for 6 years now. 5 final rounds. 3 wins, 2 runners up. In 2019, I raced at Mission Raceway in BC for the season, and gave Pro bracket a try. 3rd place, 1 point behind 2nd, when the trans came apart. Done for the year. It's fixed and ready for battle, but I bought this dragster as a roller and struggled with what direction to got for 2+ years, until the light came on. L20b/ shorty Glide. I've already done a ton of work, (and spent a ton of $$) so I will post up some pics to try to catch up. Here we go.
  7. Yes 2 speed power glide/ rear gears are 4.13 with 9x29 rear tires.
  8. I sold the truck, no engine or electronics. Those parts are going in this. It will only weigh about 1200lbs with me in it. I'm going to start out with an L20 bottom end for a year or so, then I will put the 2340 in it.
  9. It getting an L20/glide/ford 9 inch.
  10. Man, I can't even remember the last time I was on here!. I think Obama was pres. I'm building a new car that is going to be EPIC. Do we still have to use photofuckit to post here? I hope everyone is doing well.
  11. So with Hobo's OK, I will be bringing a bunch of Datsun stuff in the 411sss to sell. I will be moving soon, and need to thin my parts stash down. Lots of stuff.
  12. I dont see the problem. I leave the carb off and the intake open, While sanding bondo all the time.
  13. Hey Matt! Yes I still have the drag 521. It's in storage waiting for a new shortblock,(96 stroke x 90 bore stuffed in a medium block) and a decision regarding the trans. As much as I like rowing gears, the brass syncros and the shift linkage aint cutting it. So it's going to get a G force or a ford c4 auto with a really loose converter. Probably the latter.
  14. Yes it is a mutation. But the announcers just call it a Datsun 280z. On Friday night car club races, I run with the GM pack. The import event promoters wont let me play with them though.
