Default Videos of some of my old cars

Just found the media forum. Plus I realized I put my build thread in the wrong location. I saw another one in that forum so I assummed. If mod wants to could you please move it to the correct forum? Thanks

These are some videos of my old cars.

YouTube - thumper2750's Channel

Highlights:
193mph Nitrous C6 Vette "Big yella", [email protected]
260z Turbo "Whistler", [email protected]
280zx Turbo "GHETTO BEAST", 400lb-tq 12.4&112mph
GTO Nitrous "Aussie done good", [email protected] doing the only thing its good for burning tires

Those are the four fastest i've owned.

Impressive. About time you pick up a light car... Judging by your build thread your miata will see 11's as well.

Yepo that is my thinking as well. The 260z actually was 2250lb so it was pretty light. And my first car was a b13 sentra se-r with a sr20det bluebird in it. It weighed 2050lb. I love lightweight cars. That is why the gto sucked. But that thing had 8.5 degrees of caster and would just glide along at 150mph turning something like 3500rpms in the 6th. My friend blew up his 300zx turbo racing it.

I love all rwd sports cars. I've owned datsuns, 1st gen mr2, bmw 325e, porsche 928, miata, rx7, etc... The only cars I don't have much love for is the damn honda's. The only thing I like about them is how light you can get the old crx's. I raced a sohc n/a crx in my vette without nitrous and it was a dead even race. Without nitrous the vette was a 12.4 car.

240z, and 260z's are one of my favorite cars to build. They are great looking fairly cheap and tons of parts out there. Only thing is they are starting to get expensive. And i've built three of them in the past so kindof same old same old.

They are up there. No videos of it at the track though. Should be two highspeed videos and 4 or so races.
