Remember the Datsun 240Z that recently broke the F/GT Class record at the Bonneville Salt Flats? Here’s a video on Rebello Racing of what that looks like from the cockpit. Or is that footage from a Space Shuttle launch? No, it’s the Z.
Thank for posting these !! I say these because on Rebello’s site there is more.
Thank guys. Awesome !!
The word “thank” should read “thanks”. (Just got a bit excited.)
Those are some loooooonnngggg gear ratios. Almost as long as long cat.
Needs a 5 speed…
I sat there and waited for him to shift into 5th as well. And I waited…..and waited……
That car seemed remarkably stable at speed too!
While I’m sure there were taller gear sets than the original Z’s 3:36:1, I’d venture that the rear end is stock and all the ‘gearing’ is in those insanely tall rear wheels.
Great write-up on the Rebello site. It’s another overnight success that took 15 years!
Thanks for the comments. Actually it was a five speed but it lugged it too bad in 5th. Got more speed out of it shifting at 8000 and staying in it in forth to 7200
