Re: Let's plan a drive

I saw a lot of nice cars on my drive to Osoyoos and more than a few broken down Mustangs. That must have been a good show.

Let's plan a drive

Ok so I'm getting tired of driving by myself. I'd like to get at least a few cars out for a drive one Saturday. Maybe fort casey again? I think the run to pentiction would be fun again. I just drove it Friday and it looks like the paying will be done soon. There is still a good amount of the twisty ...

Re: Is the Subaru R180 the same as the Nissan / Datsun R180

I got a used Subaru R160 4.44 ring and pinion for $250 a couple of years ago. I have seen a few more around that price over the years.

Re: Spring Rate Feedback

I am running the Koni 8610 race insert in the front and the QA1 from a Camero in The rear. I can get the model nubers later today. Andy showed me a simple trick to see if your shocks are set in at least the ballpark of where they should be. Push a corner of the car down as hard as you can and it sho...

Re: Spring Rate Feedback

I have 300 front and 1100 rear with good dampers/shocks. I wouldn't call it harsh. Firm but not harsh, if I turn up the shocks it gets harsh pretty quick.

Re: 2.3L of fun

Well the sky decides to vomit all over my plans once more. I woke up at 5am and look out the window to rain. I check the weather for the drive to the autox and rain all the way with rain expected till the afternoon. So I went back to bed. In other news my mother in law, who is a bee keeper , was 6 f...

Re: 2.3L of fun

They do have a pretty basic tech for the autox. Just making sure the car is safe to run.
I am going to Osoyoos on Friday for a week with my family. Maybe I will see if my boy wants to go to the car show in Saturday. It would be a good time for him.....and me.

Re: 2.3L of fun

Exactly Keith. You have to be there before 8:30 to walk the coarse. If you don't walk it you don't drive. I need to have done 3 events before I can get on mission with the R compounds. Or I could just go buy some Roadhandlers and get on the track at mission right away. I don't really understand why ...

Re: 2.3L of fun

Ya it should be interesting with 85 cars. The track days at mission have a lot less cars but they cost 5 times as much. I think that they will be much more fun. I just need to do a few of these first before they will let me on the track with the R compound tires.

Re: 2.3L of fun

That's it. UBCSCC puts them on there. It's only $53. I figure I will do a few of these before going out to do a trackday at mission.

Re: 2.3L of fun

I got my fuel filters replaced today. I also had had my first try at replacing a u joint on one of the half shafts I just put in. It got about 100km before it got a bunch of play in it. It looks like it was probably the original one in there. The shaft had been painted a few times and there was a bi...

Re: Canby 2017

I say we leave at some stupid time and drive Chuckanut again. That would be fun.
For more pictures of the show you can go here.

Re: 2.3L of fun

I'm with you there. I spent about $1000 on this and I don't think I will use it for anything other than a paper weight. There is play in the spines, play in the joints.....exactly what there should not be. I'm interested in your bulbs also. I just put in some super white bulbs and they are a slight ...
