Quarter mile drag racing is the very soul of PAC Performance. They eat drink, breathe racing and rotaries. Their initial team consisted of the PACMAN RX3 and EZY08S RX2; two hero cars that worked as R&D subjects, allowing the team to progress to where they are today. Their passion is reflected in the results they have produced with their own cars.
Today Pac Performance is at the forefront of rotary performance, campaigning one of the worlds quickest and fastest rotary powered vehicles with their current lead car, a tube chassis Mazda6 SP that has run a personal best quarter mile ET of 6.35 seconds and top speed of 223mph.
PACMAN RX3 SEDAN – 20BAbout:
The PACMAN RX3 sedan was the original Pac Performance hero car; it’s where it all began. Starting off as a Webber-fed, NA 13B back in 1990 it transformed over the next 13 years into one of the most well-known RX3s in the country and still is to this day.
At one stage the PACMAN RX3 was labelled as the fastest RX3 in the world, an accomplishment that they were very proud of, considering that it was only a 3/4 chassis car. In 2003 The RX3 was sold to an existing customer to help fund a new race car venture, the Pac Performance Mazda MX6.Best ET: 7.6 @ 179mph (Click on the hyperlink to see this car in action)Status:
EZY08S RX2 COUPE – 13BAbout:
A part of the family since 1989, the RX2 coupe later known as EZY08S and PAC272 was Rocky’s baby, easily identified with its striking purple and yellow graphics. Progressing over the years from an aspirated street car to a tubbed and turbo’d dedicated racer it is to this day, one of Pac Performance’s most iconic cars.
Retired from service in 2003 the RX2 was placed under covers and safely tucked away in a corner where it waits patiently for the day it will make its return to the track...Best ET: 8.6@159mph (Click on the hyperlink to see this car in action)Status:
MAZDA MX6 – 20B
The Mazda MX6 was our first foray into a pro chassis with the intension of chasing the world record. Debuted Sept 2003 at the Queensland Jamboree we had instant success with the new chassis; re-setting the National PRO RWD ET and MPH record multiple times and winning three back-to-back national records for PRO RWD in Sport Compact for ANDRA.
The MX6 was retired from service in 2009 having run a best of 6.84@204mph, making way for the new Mazda6 however; the car made a brief but successful come-back in 2011 after Rocky’s accident in the Mazda6. The car then bettered its previous PB with a 6.62@210mph before once again retiring to make way for the current race car, the Mazda6 SP.Best ET: 6.62@210mph (click on the hyperlink for the video)Status:
RODNEY'S RX3 SEDAN – 13B
About: Younger brother Rodney’s first serious race car, the RX3 sedan was Pac Performance’s 13B R&D vehicle. The Stock chassis sedan had quite a following thanks to its old-school look, slammed stance and performance on the track.
Unfortunately in December 2010 the car was involved in an accident at Sydney Dragway and required substantial repairs however; the car is now close to being ready to make its return, albeit with a new owner/driver. Best ET: 7.28@187mph (click on the hyperlink for the video)Status:
MAZDA6 – 20BAbout:
After coming to a point with the MX6 that the team saw as the limit of the chassis the choice was made to step up into something newer. This saw the introduction of the original Pac Performance Mazda6 in early 2009. The new chassis almost instantly shot Pac Performance into world-wide fame, running a world record quarter mile time for a rotary-powered vehicle of 6.75@209mph, steered by Rocky at the 2009 Fuchs Nationals.
The car then proceeded to better that ET with a string of new world records until an unfortunate accident in 2011 saw the car retired from service indefinitely.Best ET: 6.58@208mph (click on the hyperlink for the video)Status:
MAZDA6 SP – 20BAbout:
The team’s current lead car. Unveiled in July 2012 it straight away picked up where the previous car left off running straight into the sixes. Just under 12 months later the car, driven by George broke the world record for the fastest rotary-powered vehicle, running a blistering 6.47@222 down the quarter mile at the 2013 Fuchs Winternationals and since improved to a 6.263@223 at the 2015 Melbourne Jamboree.
