Nissan Project 370Z vs 1970 Datsun 240Z with RB26 Track Battle! - The Downshift Episode 54
Many months ago, Nissan asked their fans to help them create the ultimate
370Z track car. They called it Project 370Z. To put it to the test, Nissan
fans were asked to vote for a challenger to compete against it. They chose
a 1970 Datsun 240Z with an RB26 engine transplant built by Gordon MacSwain.
On this episode of The Downshift, we head to Las Vegas Motor Speedway for
an epic David vs Goliath battle between these two amazing machines.
The Downshift appears every other Tuesday on the Motor Trend channel.

450hp LS1 1978 Datsun 280Z
One of the coolest imports I've had the opportunity to see in action, this
extremely streetable 1978 Datsun 280z takes it's first trip to the drag
strip to do some testing. The car has an LS1 with heads, cam, and FAST
intake manifold putting down around 450 wheel horsepower! Best 1/8 mile
time was 7.11 for the night.

Beverly Hills is pretty ridiculous this summer with all the cars shipped
here from the Middle East. I love seeing all the incredible cars and I
decided to shoot video the first time I saw this gold Rolls Royce Drophead
Coupe. The Rolls Royce had absolutely zero involvement with the crash to
be clear. Going the other direction I'm not exactly sure what happened but
it seems 2 drivers became distracted looking at the RR and crashed. Seems
like a bad day for the guy in the Subaru.
This is the first time I caught an accident like this on video but have
seen cars crash into one another looking at a Bugatti Veyron on the side of the road

V8 Corvette Engine Motorcycle
My neighbor brought this home last week from his work. I've seen these on
tv before but never a bike with an engine this big. The motorcycle is
idling fast it goes like 20 mph. I think he is trying to sell it.
280Z is Done
The 1977 280Z project is finally complete. The LS1 V8 from a 2001 Trans
Am works flawlessly. Check out the first burnout.
