Re: New dpracing offset camber plates

Or a 70s ford truck cause they needed to to keep them from darting off the road.

more caster makes the car self center, also adds stability and dynamic camber as said.

Re: 200sx hub with 280zx strut???

good info there.

im guessing there isn't much chance of fitting a 28zx front hub and rotor onto an 200sx strut to suck in the track width eh?

I don't have any of the parts, I'm just assuming it would bring the the rotor too far in towards the strut.

Re: 510 Fuel Level Sending Unit - Substitute 240Z Part?

Fueled up today - so far its doing well. Needle was just barely under the empty mark. I was able to get 10.6 gallons in the tank when the pump stopped. Edit: needle was still partially covering the empty mark and not under it. super cool, so all you did was buy the 25060-e4100 part, shorten the rod...

Re: NEW GUY FROM MAINE 70 4dr

me neither, tires sizes should be just that, not nominal. Make the tire, when your done, stamp the size on it, done. If it ends up being a 208/47r15 i don't care, i'd rather just know. I bet that would be more confusing to people that aren't car nuts though. i found a guy with a slew of rims that fi...
