For the Rev Heads - My brother's car got a bit crazy on Saturday

For you Rev Heads out there, this is my brother's Datsun 1200 (with ca18) It has been progressing well steadily improving times.
Current best time is 9.57 sec for the quarter and best MPH is 139.71
Well Saturday at Willowbank the weather conditions were a little too good. Result, a fair amount of damage to the front suspension and panel damage at the back.

edit: it is only a test and tune day.

Sorry "rev head" is maybe only an Aussie term.

Yes sorry about the ground shot. My other brother who was filming at the time got such a shock that he forgot about filming. Anyway, you got the idea of what the car is capable of. All the damage is repaired now, and it has a new set of wheelie bars. Next purchase is a parachute. ANDRA says any car who hits 140 MPH on the strip must have one. It will be racing this weekend at the Winter Nationals.
Steve.
