From N/A S130 to Turbo Drift Missile


Recommended Posts

This thread may be a little dead but I've still been working on Watson. I actually have my first event coming up on the 19th and I've almost got everything sorted out. Here's a small shake down run. Just a couple more parts and we should be solid. Oh, I should also note that I did end up replacing the entire fuel system. Rust in the tank and lines is not conducive to a healthy engine.








Shake down run.

It didn't. I couldn't solve the timing issue in time.... So I installed a CAS today because the optical trigger decided to walk around and screw everything up. Now I have rock solid timing and I can finally take it to redline! It goes real fast. Time to get it on a dyno for proper top end tuning.

A buddy of mine and I decided to do some random what-nots to the Datsun. We made this. A wooden dash and a fender exist of the exhaust. Pics of the final exhaust setup once the stainless steel plate is on to take up the slack cut-out area. Video tomorrow of the sound. I can't wait to start it up!

Fender-exit exhaust. Its only kind of ridiculous....


I can't wait to get to a track to see how many sideways I can get with this thing! I also can't wait to get some dyno time to get the timing map optimized.

Alright, I got the shift knob for Watson epoxied and ready to be drilled and tapped. The epoxy looks like beer; neat! Tomorrow I'll start scavenging for parts for the hydraulic e-brake that the tap handle will be used for.

I started making a hydraulic e-brake for the Datsun using a beer tap handle, a Honda Civic clutch master cylinder, and some steel. Almost done, just got to add a swivel to the lower joint and clean it up. Don't make fun of my welds; I know I suck.
