Re: 510 chassis/subframe upgrades to compensate for added hp

Duke, The 68 is the only year they had a weld where you added the gusset, the rest of the 510's didn't, interesting yours cracked. Whoever thought it was a good idea on the 68 seems to have been right.

Re: Headlight fix

Thanks icehouse! I'm pretty sure I plugged in a NEW brake switch (only $20 from Nissan!!!!), nothing..........will do it again to make sure! TJ Really!! I Went through two Rockauto brake light switches in my tan car. Ended up finding an old used one and put it in. Still works! Got the part number?

Re: Headlight fix

OOps, didn't realize this thread was 4 pages long!! :oops: :roll: Problem is that the Wagon's have a completely different turnrsignal & hazard wiring system than the Sedan's. The brake light switch runs thru BOTH turnsignal & hazard systems. I am not getting full on power at the brake switch, but I...

Re: R200 LSD options/setup

Why not just get the STI R180? R200's are so crazy big and heavy. Seems like overkill unless you are drag racing.

Re: Headlight fix

There was no sign of overheating at all, in looking at the break, I would suggest vibration finally took it's toll on a joint that maybe was marginal right from the factory. It was exactly like the one Andy ran into and it is still going strong the he re-soldered. Are we betting for another dinner?...

Re: Headlight fix

I tested the one out of the dash that only lasted one day. It was so incredibly hot!! After just a few minutes. I tried spraying contact cleaner into it. it didn't help... I hope you have better luck. I don't want you to burn down your racecar before I get a chance to drive it :)

Oh...JEFF WINS!!!!
haha smartest man in the world!!!!!


Keith like I said earlier, I've never had a re-solder last, it seems as the switch ages the amount of resistance goes up, making the problem reoccur. I had one I re-solder only last one day! Maybe you will get lucky.

Re: Joyce’s ‘71 521 Farm Truck

There are some threads on Ratsun.net on putting a 521 on a 720 frame... not quite plug and play (as you would expect). My 68 521 will get Miata front and rear suspension (but that project is a few more down the road). -m You should put the Miata suspension under one of your wagons so it drives less...

Re: Jordan's '72 2 door KA project

Yeah!!!!! The STI injectors are plug and play, also 550's and are half the price of the ford injectors. At least down here.

That Nylon compressor wheel doesn't like to be overboosted from what I've read. Sam almost got one for his SR20VET build.

Hr Jeff, why the dead weight in the passenger seat, that's your 1/2 second right there!
We get 12 runs that count towards a win, also I like to take people for rides, their reaction is great! I was over a second ahead of the next RWD car anyways :)

Re: Joyce’s ‘71 521 Farm Truck

I heard back in the day guys would cut the front of a disk brake truck off then carefully trim the suspension mounts away from the old frame and graft it onto there old disk brake trucks. I have the front of a late 620. The next 521 I get I’m going to go this route. Then you get ball joints, nice di...

Re: NANKANG AR-1 group buy

Thanks Keith, Reading the reviews people who have run the R888 and R888r were immediately faster on the AR1. I don’t buy it. The R888 and the R888r was so much different. Sounds like a blanket statement to me. I’m definitely going to have to get a set and see. No way they will work as good in the r...
