A set of 4 is about $700 to my door. They are getting great reviews. Again they are an unknown but the price is pretty good
they come in sizes down to 13" also.

Re: Hello

300whp would be a handful in a 510. I have a hair under 180whp and my car gets up to "your going to jail" speeds very fast. I have R compound 205 wide tires and they JUST cope with the power. As Keith pointed out brakes are a big one to do before you start upping the power. It is just our ...

Re: Scary times

There is also the Pirelli P-Zero Trofeo R. It has the same firm sidewall as the A050 for running lower pressures. They come in our size and are around $150/tire USD. They are 60 treadwear like the yokohama's also. From what I have read they are very comparable. They come up to temp quickly and give ...

Re: moar good videos :P

They have been working in FreeValve for a long time and it seems to finally be getting to a marketable place. The flexibility would be great on a Race/Street car. It can imitate a tame cam when you want economy and a wild one when you want max power.

Re: Fred's 73 2dr 510

Nice find, especially out in your area. Something about the wheels looks a bit off. The lug nut doesn't seem to be centered in the hole.

Re: WTB: 15 inch Watanabe wheels or look like

15x7 doesn't rub if you get your spacing correct.

Re: Should I run 15's or 14's?

My wheels are 15x7 with +35 offset. I run a 205/50R15 tire on a car wiout flares. In the rear I am running 12mm spacer and a 30mm in the front. That gives me 3mm to the strut in the front from the rim and the wheel can tuck up till it hits the bump stops on struts. I do have camber plates that give ...

Re: Should I run 15's or 14's?

There are still quite a few good 15" tires available. I went with a high offset on my wheels (+35) as it is easy to space them out to where they will work but if the offset is too low you are just hooped.

Re: Changing valves seals with head in place L-series

Andy replaced mine last year after the 580 lift cam destroyed the first set. I think he put in KA seals which were a couple of mil shorter. The seals were only $8 for the set from Andy if I remember right.

Thanks guys. Ithe is nice to know that it isn't just me. Keith I have the foam, you suggested that a while ago to me. I went around this week tapping things with a screwdriver.

Re: Restoring a '69 510 4 door.

My "normal" driving with the 2.3LZ gets me about 200-220km per tank. Straight hwy I can get almost 350. I do tend to use the throttle peddle like an on/off switch normally.
