 @varilight  @AdamMcCorriston I used the find command. couldn't find it. the only mazda referance was my post about yours, and yours.  Did you mean Mazworx?

 @BenS867 Actually, I did not know that.  Makes perfect sense though.  It's still my favorite ratio though. hahaha

You guys sure seem to know what you're talking about.  I gotta be honest, I glazed over a bit reading all the comments.  Thread Hijack aside, This 380sx is bad-ass.  I hope it breaks 400.  I'd love to see my favourite chassis beat the big boys.  Lord knows she's light enough to have a shot.  A few years ago I remember reading something about it being top 5 in least aerodynamic drag, Prius one the top of the list.  (I assume it's for it's class. Cause I imagine lotus' and ferrari's, Bugatti's, etc....are a fair bit more aerodynamic)

 @varilight  I searched this whole page, and at no point did anyone mention a mazda.  The referance to my car was stating just that. that the car doesn't have the aero required to go that fast. perhaps this sexy 240 does.

 @AdamMcCorriston A few on my facebook, but the swap only about a season old, so not much vid.  Tomei and Mazworx say it's good to 12'000 rpm.  I don't know how long it'd last there though.  I made peak power at 8700 with the old turbo,, (well,,,,,,,, that's the point the rollers spun) right now it's tuned to 10'200 rpm with the current setup. but makes peak at 9k

@AdamMcCorriston Ahhh no sir, that's WHP.  lol  SR. tomei 2.2 stroker. but she's closer to a 2.3.  9.5:1 comp pistons,, 284 cams, half inch head studs, bully built race motor, spared no expense, Built and balanced by mazworx.  T42 turbo, 2000cc Injector dynamics.  12k rpm redline.  made 680 wheel @ 28psi and spun the dyno.  We assume it would have hit higher than 7, but we didn't get it on paper. Since then It's  been paired with a GTX38 at 16psi and wayyyy smaller injectors, and is making only 580,, but is much more streetable.  HAve to ditch my Power FC and get a differant standalone to tune low end drivability - And - peak power.  (right now i have to sacrifice one for the other due to limits in Apex'i and datalogit's software

Couldn't hold it for long enough to climb higher.  I was watching my intake and water temps climb by the second.  Also, this was on public roads,  Haven't had a chance to get her on an airstrip or anywhere safe enough to do it. I'm kinda depressed now, hearing that your stock 3 would hit that.  She pulls hard as fuck to 240. then she slows off a bit, but still climbs.  Gearing is a factor too. I'm running an R32 GTR Diff, so my final drive suffers. but accells quicker.    If I put a 300zx trans in and swapped my final drive it would make worlds of differance

You know those lambo's curb in at around 1500-2000 pounds more though, right?  Power to weight bro.  As a 700hp 240sx owner, I can attest to the fact that the car is light as hell.  That being said, I haven't recorded speeds higher than 250kms/hr  (A lot of that having to do with aero - or lack thereof)
