Its a great laugh, although I think it must have been a school project or something its too new to be an 'old' commercial.

Nice looking 240z done up to Fairlady style specification. Watch for the end when he gives her a bit of stick.

Oh, here's a couple of tubers, part 1 and part 2, from  May 2009 Historics at Eastern Creek.
The Blue Z No 28 is Jason Lea. Qld, the White Z is Brian Potts NSW, and the yellow Z is Peter Lang also NSW.
I had flat spotted my fronts, the car was pushing on corner exit, and I was wrenching the nth degree out of the thing to keep up with Pottsy, and keep the Alfa at bay through the twistys, and then Langy comes scooting through the lot of us.
The Porsche just wouldnt move over.
Footage taken from an Alfa gtv. Thanks Danny Gatto. ( Mick's son???)
Note the engine note at the start, and when the Alfa's window (RHS) is next to the LHS of the blue Z at some parts.
Bit noisey! Some rpm's there too !!!
Ahh it's just an engine.

Here are some more of the same car





and this one with a stronger field including a Nissan R380 Le-Manns car :)


Now about the car and what is in it - I can answer that as I have Japanese magazine article on it.

First before we get to the engine lets understands other aspects of the car.

RIMS are Longchamp XR4 in 15x9 -15 offset fronts and rears are 15x9.5 -21 offset. Rapped in 215/50/15 front and 225/50/15 rears both Advan A048 (yes it has ZG overfenders installed and a large wing on the rear front spoiler is the normal single piece setup and it has light covers with chrome rings). Front brakes are the good brembo 4 pots and rear are also the good brembo 4 pots. These run with an AP adjustable valve and no booster but still a single MC. Fitted with a bolt in half cage. Running 260z (as we know them) stub axles in the rear - not sure on the diff or gearbox setup.

Ok the engine.

It runs a surge tank and 2 pumps - assume pre and post surge tank. A thick cross flow raditor. On the side of the engine are 3 x 50mm mikuni carbs running open trumpeted feed from air taken from in front of the radiator (ie 3 or 4" pipe fitted via radiator support panel). Under these sucky things is a wrapped header that is 45mm and 6-2-1 design. Still running a Dizzy but electronic and controlled by the Wako CD-1200 CDI unit. Now for the engine inside bits.

An L3.0 running 89mm bore and a 80mm stroke (ie L28 crank offset ground or smaller journal to add the extra 1mm stroke - that is an assumption on my part) running standard 44mm inlet valves and 35mm exhaust with a 78 cam (this is what I can make out of the Japanese Kanji) which is 12mm of lift I think. And what I think is an AP twin plate clutch setup (again my Japanese Kanji is no existent so this is my best guess)

So does that help?
