Re: Swift springs

My understanding is that Swift use a proprietary spring steel alloy that allows for thinner wire diameter for a given spring rate, so they provide marginally more travel before stacking solid. This can be significant if running short 8" springs on a 510. I changed from 8" Eibach to Swift and noticed...

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

Took my fresh build on a 230mi round trip today. Passed with flying colors! Only had 140mi on the clock to start the day. Really looking forward to that 500mi break-in oil change so I can finally give it some stick!

Re: Rally 510 Photos & Videos

A few more period Safari pics. 1970 champs. Note lack of front flares. Did they add the flared fenders during the event? : https://i.imgur.com/peBqhVy.jpg Joginder Singh placing good luck talisman on his Bluebird grille: https://i.imgur.com/s10wJL9.jpg No glass! https://i.imgur.com/9Lxhx1H.jpg 1970 ...

Re: westwood and race car pics

Lots of great pics! Love all the period wheels. Libres make everything look better (MGs, Mazdas, Pintos, even a 2002). That might be the only F-10 I've ever seen on a racetrack. Was that Lee "Mother" Mueller in the Huffaker TR8? Also some great shots of the Lauren St. Lawrence VIPs Z. Not to mention...

Re: Mikuni's going rich after high lateral G's

I just remembered this tip that someone recommended and worked well for autocross- change out the 1.8 float bowl needle valves for 2.0s. I think the argument was something like the extra flow volume capability helps replenish the fuel level in the float bowls quicker.

Re: Muffler selection. Magic solution needed.

The Borla Pro XS muffler, 40657 (2") or 40658 (2 1/4") measures 14" long x 7 7/8" wide by 4 1/4" height with center inlet, and offset outlet and fits a 510 perfectly. They are stainless steel so a bit more expensive (about $100 from Summit), but worth it for fit, sound and durability, IMHO. https://...
