Re: 2.3L of fun

Well seeing as the weather is nice I decided to drive the car into work for the last 2 days. It gives me a good feel for how the tires do on the highway. They gain a lot more pressure as the heat up than the A048 did. I started at 30psi cold and after 30 min on the highway at 90 to 100kph they were ...

Re: Wanted 5.1 crown wheel & pinion set for a R180 diff

You should specify which internal diameter of the crown also. For the R180 there are 2. 110mm for the older Datsun stuff and the newer diffs with the K cast in the casing are 115mm. Just an FYI, I found out the hard way.

Re: 15x6.5 +15 or 15x7 0 offset?

I'm sure with different tires mine would touch. I was very worried about it when I first put 205's on my car. I'm going to put the gopro looking at a tire for a drive one day and see how much they move.

Re: 15x6.5 +15 or 15x7 0 offset?

My tires are a LOT closer to the strut than yours are. I have 2 or 3mm space and I have not seen a mark on any tires yet. I wonder if that was because of the larger sidewall that they were deflecting that much? What size were those tires Keith?

Re: 2.3L of fun

Ya I got just past 7500 rpm in 5th and it felt like I was just about to achieve lift off.

Re: 2.3L of fun

I know with my old trans that had the .86 5th it pulled great past 7500rpm. I did it 3 times (on a closed coarse only of course) and 230 it really really really fast in a 510. I'm pretty sure with the .74 I would have trouble hitting that unless it was a very long stretch of road.

Re: 2.3L of fun

I have the zx transmission now. It has the gears below with .745 overdrive and I love it. At 8000 in 4th with my 4.44 gears I am doing 197kmph...yes it lays down in 5th but I don't need to go much faster. I will take the lower rpm on the highway and just have to be on the ball and downshift early wh...

Re: 2.3L of fun

He has the 15s in stock. I don't know about the 13s. They took under a week to get for me. If you call and speak to Robert he will be able to let you know timing on them. Tell him Norm with the 510 sent you. When I was looking for A048s he had the best price and was the most knowledgeable I spoke to...

Re: 2.3L of fun

I am getting them from Quebec. Wheelwhiz.ca. I can get them at a good discount also. I am looking forward to seeing how they hold up and perform. This set is a test set and are the latest compound. For all the guys running 13's it would be great to have a R comp tire that is affordable and not Toyo.

Re: 2.3L of fun

I have seen that review also. I started marking my tires last year. In a season I rotated the A048 just under a full turn on the wheel. All 4 of them so when I got these out on I got the guys to line up the valve stems with the yellow dots on the tires and check the balance. The most that one was ou...

Re: 2.3L of fun

Well the sun saw fit to come out and shine all day so I got to test the new tires. Wow, I can't believe that these are $165/tire retail. In comparison to the A048 on the comfort side these are way better. They don't crash over the bumps and don't try to follow every line in the road. On the performa...

Re: 2.3L of fun

Well I got in a set of test tires. 20180406_200626-2217x1663.jpg Nanking AR1's. They are slightly wider than the A048. The stack of 4 tires is about an inch taller. 20180406_200649-2822x2117.jpg They are very sticky and have a very stiff sidewall. I can sit on the tire without the rim and there is a...
