Z32 Still holds Land speed record

"The JUN-BLITZ Bonneville Z32 holds the E/BMS class land speed record of 419.84 km/h (260.87 mph) set at the 1991 Bonneville Speed Trial. The vehicle was built as a partnership between JUN Auto and BLITZ. This record remains unbroken. "

Did you guys know this. I am going to have to do more reading. Detail of the E/BMS class.

And that JUN did it. I thought they jsut made silly looking fishmouth bumpers.

Can't seem to find out what the Class it is in
E- classic. Doesn't fit
BMS-blown mod sport, but no such catagory in the E class. Would suck if they held a recorde in a class that is no longer competitive.

Re: Z32 Still holds Land speed record

I like the simple "no-plenum" and single throttle body idea. It evens looks like they made some custom valve covers.

Re: Z32 Still holds Land speed record

Ok, time to explain this. Listen up!

First, this is only records set at the Bonneville Salt Flats, not any other kind, not international, etc. (http://www.scta-bni.org/)

Second, there is no longer an E/BMS class, it is E/BGMS.

E/BGMS means:

E = Engine size, 184-260 cid (3.01 to 4.26 liters)
BGMS = Blown Modified Gas Sports class
This record is for GT class cars, modified, with blown engines of 3-4L.

Here are the current records, with the JUN entry highlighted:
Blown Gas Modified Sports - /BGMS
AA Bonner's Bad Berkley B. Denton ' 02 254.135
A Bonner's Bad Berkley B. Denton ' 01 264.007
B Burke Bros. and Dad Kier Shapiro 8/04 231.516
C B & G Racing Elden Beach 8/07 187.918
D Sundowner D. McKinney ' 88 242.411
E Blitz Jun Auto-A S. Koyama ' 91 260.809
F Kahler's Porsche Service D. Kahler ' 88 220.615
G Richard Kreines Jim Steck 8/06 217.152
H Fairhill Millennium Falcon T. Stephens ' 00 205.207
I Fairhill Millennium Falcon T. Stephens ' 01 146.981

So yes, that is **** fast, but it is a limited scope record. The good news is that the record is relatively old compared to the rest of the records. 2007 was a good year for breaking them.

Re: Z32 Still holds Land speed record

Someone over at TT.net was selling a single upper plenum with a large single TB a little while ago.

I cant remember who though?
