Re: "Hey" my daily driven race car!

You might look into something that would bolt to the unused shoulder belt anchor point in the c pillar. I think Schroth makes a belt that is designed to be mounted like that. One of the fast guys that I autocross with uses one in his WRX.

Re: "Hey" my daily driven race car!

You will be amazed at what a difference a good seat can make. Also you may think about installing a harness of some kind. Being strapped in tightly and not having to brace yourself during a run is just one less thing to think about. I like that you mounted it nice and low. My seat a also touches the...

Re: Scary times

Keith, what size tires do you run? I think that the venerable 205/50-15 size will be available in many different options for a long time, as this is a very popular size for Miatas.

For tire suggestions, you may look at the Nitto NT-01. I have heard very good things about them from multiple people.

Re: Narrowing rear control arms

Hey Jeff, that is looking very promising. Here are some pictures I have been sitting on for a while. These are of the rear end of an Australian 810 (?) Bluebird race car. I have always thought that this would be a cool way to set up the rear end of a 510 with minimal impact to the body. It looks ver...

Re: Gordy's ecotec 510

Whenever I see a 510 with a big wing, it always reminds me of my friend - Malcolm McQueen! The downforce is definitely needed for traction out on the lake. :mrgreen: James https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVSrMcZ15Uk Not to jack this thread, but watching this video is giving me the uncontrollable ur...

Re: Improving crash safety without a cage

Interesting subject. If you have a 2 door you could look into finding a set of '73 doors. They have in integrated side protection beam that would help in case of a collision. As was previously mentioned, new seat belts are a must. Also, 3 point belts in the back seat (there should be anchors for the...

Re: Gordy's ecotec 510

I love seeing the progress, especially the aero. Kinda makes me want to do something similar... I see that you are currently running Hankook RS3's. What are you running for pressures? I just picked up a set as DD/track day tires and am looking to get some help to get me in the ball park in terms of ...

This is all pure gold! I'm loving the pictures! Keith, your stories about Westwood back in the day sound amazing. I couldn't imagine having that kind of access to a track.

Re: Bandsaw

Nice Julian. A good bandsaw is a welcome addition to any shop. Another relatively inexpensive alternative to re purposing a wood cutting saw is getting a portaband with a bench top stand. I got one a few years ago and I have used the hell out of it! With a good blade it powers though anything. The o...

Re: Aluminum Radiator Mounting and fitment

I have seen people solid mounting them as well and I would be very leery of this. As you pointed out there must me some allowance for the radiator to expand and contract as it heats up and cools down. If mounting the radiator to the core support similar to stock, I would use lord mounts (like these:...
