Re: Rally 510 Photos & Videos

This odd rig was included in there. Might as well link the thread with the rest of this.

Re: Rally 510 Photos & Videos

Those are some of the photos included in that McMahon collection that was posted a few days ago on realautosport.com. Lots to go through there!

Re: Rally 510 Photos & Videos

This site has a collection of pix from SCCA pro events in the early '70s -- Michigan area, POR, etc. Amateur photos credited to “McMahon” with lots of beat and battered cars, 510s among them.

Re: VQ35DE swap

Botoneta Racing in Guatemala runs a VQ sedan and wagon. Wild cars! It sounds like they built the front end around their VQ donor’s engine bay. https://www.facebook.com/BotonetaRT/

Re: 2017 SCCA RunOffs

Several 510s hope to make the show as well -- Dave Patten in F Production, Roger Welling and Alex Burnett in HP, plus a group of 240Z's in EP.

Re: CV Failure

In "How to Modify...", BRE had similar problems with U-joints, but they were being pushed to the extreme. Surprising CVs aren't working better.

Re: Canby 2017

Sounds like Lou deserves more than the long-distance award -- Kenny Luckenbill posted on facebook that he encountered wet pavement and a guard rail on his way back home :cry: :^( https://www.facebook.com/groups/205795212890718/ https://scontent.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/19248116_10211417066096329_905260...

To add to this steering thread, Saturn's electric power steering motor might be an option to hydraulics:
