Re: The Red Baron

You'll have to let us know how the Stance coilovers go. Was that drive done with the new CVs installed or no?

That drive and weather looks lovely! I too went for a drive yesterday but it was not as warm!

Re: Spring Length affect on the suspension?

Thank you for the thorough responses Byron and Jordan it is very helpful. I have heard good things about the Tokico 5 way adjustable inserts so hopefully they will be a good pairing with the springs. I am going to order up the 8" springs and see how they work. I can always get some wider space...

Re: Spring Length affect on the suspension?

Longer spring means more travel before the spring becomes "solid" aka runs out of travel. With high (stiff) spring rates, this is not much of a concern on 510s. An 8" 250lb/in spring and a 10" 250lb/in rate spring will be an unintelligible difference to the driver since the rates...

Re: Spring Length affect on the suspension?

I don't run anything longer than 8" because it limits clearance at the tire. If all the stars align on the homebuilt coilover setups, you can end up with shortened struts and inserts, an 8" spring, the correct ride height, AND some preload on the spring. This is the optimum case as Byron s...

Re: Another 72 510

I bolted my horns underneath that sheet metal using the same holes. Probably slightly less functional but it's nice to have them out of the bay.

Re: LSD Break Away Touque...??

I would think that a low breakaway torque with a somewhat gradual ramp up to lock would be the most friendly to drive. My cars with GTR LSDs are kinda clunky and aggressive with the stock 2 way. I have a 1.5 way LSD for the 510 that'll hopefully happen this year. With a 510 and the oversteer tendenc...

Re: Metric Fasteners

Fastenal is pretty reasonable. Buy a pack of 25 nice stainless bolts and they'll find plenty of homes on a rusty old Datsun... Ask me how I know! :D

Re: 2.3L of fun

The lights look goofy but the results sure look great! Can you post a link to the ones you found? What wattage and lumens? I found these https://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B019JCPTBO/ref=pd_aw_sim_sbs_263_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=3ZDYTQEW8MAKE7YYRRPE And these https://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B01HYB9T...
