Re: Duke's'72 Carbed KA project

1/2" wider than the MR2 rack. Although the model loaded weird on my machine.

Re: Duke's'72 Carbed KA project

I'm also curious about the end result in steering speed. Lock to lock i'm sure different between our cars. With the rack and pinion I get more angle than with the box. It's slightly faster, I'm not sure how much faster. I guess at the next shasta autoX we will just have to swap cars for a lap or two...

Re: Duke's'72 Carbed KA project

Did you draw the entire front suspension in Solid Works? It's been a while now but I remember the LCA pivots don't match the rack width. The LCA and the tie rod follow different arcs. As the suspension compresses caster is added which moves the outer tie rod down creating a different arc. That might...

Re: Duke's'72 Carbed KA project

So it's quicker steering but is it have less overall wheel angle? Me and Sam swapped over to rack and pinion on our daily 510's in one day. I thought we did something wrong at first, but it's exactly as you said. It's weird having tight steering in a 510 haha. Awesome build! I want a set of your cal...

http://i.imgur.com/UamdU4w.jpg Added some weld nuts for the IC http://i.imgur.com/ea8KU9b.jpg Got everything mocked up. Still adjusting in this picture though. Think I might pain the IC black on this build. Hide it a little better. http://i.imgur.com/YIkwd5e.jpg Had to move the rad inlet, hopefully...

Re: "Hey" my daily driven race car!

Sam has an L motor in his car. Just gotta go front sump. Ain't no thing! haha :) Yes more brakes, more power more more! I like trying to get 1 upgrade per race. It's fun see what each item does. Next I want to put heim joints for end links on my sway bar. Gotta take a trip to the spares department a...

Re: "Hey" my daily driven race car!

The solid mounts are WAY better! Yeah they add some noise to the cabin and I can hear the back lash in my diff now from on to off throttle. All things I was expecting. Something I was not expecting was more stability on the freeway. Like Keith advises I run a bunch of rear toe in. On our rutted out ...

Re: "Hey" my daily driven race car!

Thanks Duke I will look into that! Another upgrade complete! Solid mounted the rear crossmember with the DP racing aluminum bushings. Nice parts, kinda tough to put back together since it didn't have any give. Tomorrow is Hot Import Daze, I'm racing in the autoX event. Can't wait to see how she does...

Re: 280z VQ35HR swap help

Wait so did you try hook the suggested key power wire straight to the battery? Seems like you have it hooked to the wrong position on the ignition.

Re: EFI surge tank under car

I have an intake pump out of an S13 and I even welded in the cup thing, it sucks big time at the track, if I get below 5/8's of a tank it fuel starves. So lame!

Re: "Hey" my daily driven race car!

Duke I'm thinking the only way I can make something happen with fancy belts is if I bolt in a belt bar for race days and take it back out. It's my daily driver, gotta be able to haul the kids :)

Re: "Hey" my daily driven race car!

New seat for my DD racecar!! Wow!! Took me two days after work of tinker to get the seat mounted. It's a tight fit, touches the tranny tunnel and the door just slightly, just the seat padding. It's nice and low and center on the steering wheel though!!!!!! http://i.imgur.com/xlHrOi3.jpg http://i.img...

Re: Scary times

I'm totally going to run 13's on my car as soon as we do the narrowed control arms. Keith our car doesn't look bad with big wheels. I think flares helps the look. RMS I have 13" watt's on my sunny with zx brakes. But the 13" Enkies I have won't fit. http://i.imgur.com/dOSWAA1.jpg http://i....

Re: Scary times

The shop was going to order the custom tires from an actual company like Toyo, or Yokahama. I'm going to bug them this year at SEMA You don't want 13's? I hate the way my car looks with 15's, looks tall and dorky. I love how frank's car used to look with his 13's they were 235's though. http://i.img...
