Re: OCTOBERFAST 2018

I can imagine it would have been a bit scary driving into those corners and not expecting it if you were not on R compounds. It made me thankful I have the tires I do. Diving into them fast and knowing you have a bunch left in the bank in terms of grip was comforting. If the road turns quicker than ...

Re: OCTOBERFAST 2018

There were about 15 to 20 cars after you Dean then nothing. The biker had just gone down about a minute before I came by.

Well that was a great drive. That new pavement is great. Dean and Byron I saw you headed the other way as I was running to the ferry. Dean was just in front of the motorcyclist who rear ended a car and Byron was just after. I bet that added a bunch of time to your drive.

Re: Draining the Account-72 Dime

Nice looking car. 600lb is waaaaay too light for the rears to match with the front. To match with 250lb fronts you should be around 950lb. The rear control arm has a 3.8 : 1 ratio.

Re: Adjustable Rear Spring Perch

You will want to match them to the front springs. I have weight jacked in my car. I have 300lb front and 1100lb rear. You should match them at a ratio of 3.8 or as close as you can get.

Re: F10

I would for sure drive that car. I'm not a fan of FWD but either drive it as it or just cram a cheap newer FWD motor into it. It's so ugly it looks good.

Re: "83 280ZX close ratio box and 3:90 differential

I agree with Keith. Don't think twice about it. Go with the 4.11's. I have 4.44's and a second diff with 4.6's that is going in next month. With the .74 OD it makes the short gears totally bearable for hwy driving. It is also the cheapest HP you can buy.

I may have to bolt their seats down in the back. I'm sure they would totally love 7h in my car.

Her name is Asha....that would not go over well. She is going to a competition and will not be home. I'm pretty sure she would not like to have the kids along.

Right now I know I cannot come on the 27/28th weekend. That is my wife's birthday. The 13/14 would be best for me.
