Re: Rack And Pinion exploration

I just completed this same install, and went with the 2.9 OEM style rack. The multiplier equates to 2.436 in the car. I just a half hour ago moved the car for the first time since installing it. Out one driveway and into the next one, that's it. I have a primarily street "72 KA turbo car, and a slo...

Re: Brake Master Question

Doesn't Troy Ermish sell RHD master cylinders for that exact reason?

I had a comment about carbs but why repeat myself :)

Re: "Hey" my daily driven race car!

Had a blast an the NW Nissan event. They had a autox at the Evergreen track. Of coarse I had to attend. I knew I had a good chance of placing on the way. It was so rainy. Most guys seem to not know their cars limits in the rain. I had a 5 second lead for the first few laps while guys found their car...

Re: Flat Plane Crankshaft

All 4 cylinder cranks will be 'flat plane'. As they are all 4 cycle engines (compression, fire, exhaust and intake) and there are only 4 cylinders, I don't think you could do it any other way really. Mike, you had to know that Japanese engineers would challenge that thinking sooner or later... http...

Re: NANKANG AR-1 group buy

Through that site I can get them here for 304 a tire.... The Nankangs are much cheaper. I've found them online for 1/2 the price even including shipping. I can see why you switched. My tires last about 8 months, since I daily on them they get pretty heat cycled.

Re: Noobie's 510 project

Finding good rubber for 14’s is tough. What tires are you planning on running? What power column? We picked up a Vue column for our enduro car. It looks like quite the project to make it bolt in.

What about 13x6 Enki's that look similar to panasports?

Re: Rack And Pinion exploration

Me and Sam did two rack conversions with L series. By far the hardest engine to install it on :( We just beat a big dent in a short tube header, moved the motor back as far as it would go and leaned it to the other side. Or run E85. When we ran Avgas on Dave's turbo car originally it was over 11.0 t...
