Re: LSD Break Away Touque...??

Byron did you feel your R190 had a slow ramp up? I feel like sometimes mine doesn't lock up. Kinda lame.

The SR I weighted is a S15 spec R so it has the dual disk clutch which maybe why the weights are so close. It's a heavy bastard!

Re: "Hey" my daily driven race car!

Had a blast at the track today! Got second in RWD. The dude that got first was in the first run group, it started raining as I started my last session :( We will never know if I could have beat him. He's an SCCA dude, they are super competitive and are hard to beat! The kinda guys who don't daily th...

^agreed! Just being a passenger in the S with a 2.4 0-60 was making me feel sick. I'm a bad passenger though.

Re: wipe your face gas cars!

fastest car on paper I guess since they have no recorded top speed. They will have to beat the new leader who had an averaged 277 mph on a race course in Nevada this year. Even if they don't win top speed 8.8 in the quarter is a win, with a factory warranty. Top speed to me is dumb, no room or plac...

Re: wipe your face gas cars!

That's body shops that take forever to do repairs not the repair centers, aluminum body has its drawbacks I guess. My brother works at the Seattle repair center, they normally get the cars in and out really fast. My brother's team almost beat the motor swap record when they went in for training. The...

So the clear answer is Turbo KA!


I feel the opposite. The clear answer is SR :)

Re: 1971 2 Door, L16 --> 2.1 Long Rod --> SR20VE

Andy at Specialty uses a torque plate for all our engines. It's mimicking the head bolt distortion, upon boring, keeps those cylinders nice and round and hence good piston ring seal. Does he put a used headgasket in between the block and torque plate? If you want to recreate the same forces that th...

Re: 2.3L of fun

So aren't the K housing R180's in the 80's 200sx? The STI K R180 just has a different spline count right?

Torque plate seems like seems like a gimmick to me. Such a simple parts for a ton of money. Wish I would have thought of it!

We will know more when the prototypes are done. I have Byron's brackets in my car. Raising the pivot should help with anti-squat but gotta check and see what it does to toe change.

Re: Narrowing rear control arms

It's obvious you guys are much smarter than me. I'm just trying to look at things from my limited perspective in hopes that it helps in some way with what you guys are doing. :D Looking at your design, have you considered what rear bearing housing you're going to use? Maybe you can just steal it fr...

Re: "Hey" my daily driven race car!

Ditch the KA for a SR20VE Duke!! A buddy of mine road raced a sentra. He said the VE's will spin 9k all day stock! That and the P11 stock ports flowed better then the S13 head he had professionally ported. You will loose 50lbs getting rid of the cast iron KA block. That's what I'm going to do next. ...

I had 3.7's before and its so much better on the low speed corners I'm almost 2 seconds faster then a guy that used to be about the same speed as me and I feel I can improve on that. I am worried about dry days on our h...
