MAZFIX is a custom to being in the record books. Over the years time slips have fallen and then inevitably a new benchmark to beat is set, both personally and within the national and world scene.
Mazfix dyno days are rumoured to be big, so we went along to find out just how big
Recently, the Seven of Clubs Mazda Car Club of QLD (www.sevenofclubs.com.au) held a joint dyno day with Mazfix Performance. Previous dyno days held by Archie and the boys have pulled some decent cars, and when combined with the Seven of Clubs, it was definitely an event we were keen to attend.
Entries for the day were many and varied, with the Seven of Clubs Mazda Car Club hosting 26 cars in all but one category, not to mention the many other private competitiors. It proved to be a hit with onlookers, with estimates of more than 500 spectators watching the action on the rollers. Mazfix even had a big-screen TV for the crowd. In true QLD fashion, the weather was spot-on, with many retiring from the dyno room to grab a sausage from the BBQ and have a look at the hundreds of cars lining the street.
Standouts from the event included Phillip Burnette’s R33 Skyline posting a solid 500kW at the wheels, along with Ron Lange’s 305kW 1G-GTE-powered Gemini. Plenty of aspirated and turbocharged rotors hit the rollers, with Andrew Smith’s 13B Turbo-powered VW Buggy laying down 160kW at the wheels. Not bad for a dirt demon. It wasn’t just the twin-rotor crowd either, with a cuple of 20B Cosmos having a run.
