Cremaster Racing ...Google it. First off, the car! 1979 Datsun 280ZX ($700 on craigslist) It has been through 5 races so far in 2 seasons, with one 4th place finish (lucky). The car has been through a lot, it had all the typical Japanese steel rust issues and we have spent a lot of time getting it rigid enough to keep the seat from falling through the floor (again). We are in the process of swapping in a more modern RB20DET after we realized that we can't compete on the straights.

Hi, The timing advance in our 280zx is static over 3000 RPM. The mechanical advance "bottoms" out over 3000 RPM. Would it be better if the timing advance continued to increase over 3000 RPM in relation to the RPM? So instead off: 1000 RPM: 25 deg 2000 RPM: 30 deg 3000 RPM: 34 deg 4000 RPM: 34 deg 5000 RPM: 34 deg 6000 RPM: 34 deg Having: 1000 RPM: 25 deg 2000 RPM: 30 deg 3000 RPM: 34 deg 4000 RPM: 38 deg 5000 RPM: 40 deg 6000 RPM: 42 deg Would this increase power at higher RPM? (The numbers above are not exact, but in a ball park)

Tomorrow, I will be heading out on I-75 south from Valdosta, GA to near Tampa, FL to pickup our 1978 Nissan 280z. The current owner was in the beginning stages of a ChumpCar, and we will be picking up where he felt off. (Brakes, Clutch and a rollcage) So I just wanted to say Hello and wonder if there are any ChumpCar drivers in the Valdosta area... My dad and I are planning on building and racing the car together, we have been racing karts for the last 12 years or so, and wanted something a little bigger and better. I have to blame my college roommate for showing my ChumpCar, he races with a team out of Atlanta and planted the seed. Also, I have found some AIVs for my car so far, but if any other 280z teams wanted to let a hand on their AIV documentation, I would be thankful. Probably take our time and try to get the car ready for that Road Atlanta in December.
