Re: FIA Cyl head

adding pictures is not intuitive?? I agree 100%. put some text into the text box, then click 'full editor & preview" just below the text box there are two tabs. one says options, one says attachments. click the attachments tab. click add files. it should be intuitive from that point forward. That i...

Re: Datsun Restomods CV showing at Byron's - Nov 25th 1-5 PM

I would be interested to see if this will fit on my car. My exhaust is much like Keith's but in 2.5" instead of 3.

This is sad to hear. I made it for the first time this year and it was a great time. You out on a great show that will be missed. Thank you for all the hard work you put in to put on the show.

Re: 2.3L of fun

Yes I had equivalent to my weight in the car. I tried to set it up with the weight in the shape of myself so it accurately imitates me. The scales are PCR-2301. I bought 1 to start with to test it. I ran it up to 690lb a bunch of times and the only time I got more than .5lb variance was when the sca...

Re: 2.3L of fun

I have spent the last couple of days working on corner weighting my car. I have to say that it is not as easy as I thought it would be. I found a helpful site that in the end helped me a bunch. https://robrobinette.com/corner_weight_calc.htm I picked up a set of scales for $250. They are good for 70...

Re: Headlight fix

I have found on re-soldering pieces like this it is really important to remove ALL the old solder, clean off an residue and trim the wire back so there is no solder left on that. I bit of emery paper on the point you are soldering to right before you soldering so you are starting completely fresh. I...

Re: NANKANG AR-1 group buy

Thanks Keith,
Reading the reviews people who have run the R888 and R888r were immediately faster on the AR1.

If anyone is interested in reading some reviews of the AR1 I have found this site to be a good source for tire reviews.

Re: NANKANG AR-1 group buy

I'm in the market for a set of tires for another set of wheels. I'm running 185/60r14 Nankang NS-2Rs on my current wheels and they perform amazingly. Do you think with the stiffer sidewalls of the AR-1 I could fit 225/45r15 on a 6.5"? When are you needing to make the purchase by and can shipping be...

Re: NANKANG AR-1 group buy

I have no experience with these tires. I race locally in IT7 (for 1st gen Mazda RX7's in ITA spec). The Nitto NT01 is the spec tire. They have a 100 TW rating. What always seems to be the case with most of these 100 +/- TW tires is they run for a full season w/o any drop in lap times. They are grip...

Re: Noobie's 510 project

I will be interested in the R180 version for sure. I don't think I will be able to make it into town to meet you when you are here. If they work out well on that red car I'm sure they would work on mine.

NANKANG AR-1 group buy

I'm putting it out there if anyone is interested in getting some R compound tires. I am able to get a pretty good deal on them. If I have more people the price will get better. Currently they are $600 for a set of 205/50R15 delivered to my door. There is a wide variety of sizes. https://www.wheelwiz...
