She is going to the dyno tomorrow (weather permitting)

Anyone want to guess as to the numbers? :)

Rebello "Frankenstein" L23 with stage 3 cam and Minuni 44's. Nissan comp header blah blah blah

I was going to guess about 200 at the fly. So maybe 150-165 RWHP hopefully

Your numbers sould about right. Post up the dyno sheet when you get it. What type of dyno? Mustang, dynojet?

Tomorrow? I thought you were coming up here tomorrow? :shock:

I did run it on the dyno today. I won't post the numbers yet though b/c it's running like $hit at high rpm's. We figured out it is running really rich and fouling the plugs causing the ignition to drop off at higher rpm's. The guys said I will get an extra 25-30hp easy when the jets are right.

Also did a compression check. 200-210 on all cylinders :)

I need to get new jets for the 44's. 2-3 sizes smaller.

Here is an updated photo with my RC car though :)

Hello!

I love your car ... he is fantastic!
I hope my car is so beautiful as yours ...

I noticed that you have a Datsun 510 Rc, here in Portugal is not for sale, Rc 510 that is very expensive there?

Greetings and more photos of your machine!

Yeah there are a few threads on the RC car here as well by other members. It is made by HPI and is available most places for $200 US. Have you looked on eBay?

Keep us updated on the HP numbers. I think you can make at about 150 hp. I have pretty much the same motor as you and I last dynoed 139 whp but I tuned it some by the sotp and I am strongly feeling I am making around 150 whp. it really goes. what jets do you have in there now?

I haven't pulled the jets yet but Todd thinks he used 150's. So I will try 140's first if that is the case

I am thinking 150RWHP as well. Cannot wait to drive it at that power!!!

I've got to hand it to you, five&dime. This 1st Project Post thread of yours has gone on for quite some time now and you've had quite a string of luck with it. I've been a major fan up to this point. However, it appears you really dropped the ball and, frankly, I'm terribly upset. Not sure how to word this, but... why is your little Hotwheels Datsun 510 not sitting on the hood of your HPI cup car in that photo?!?

Just joshing you. Keep up the insane work.
