Re: Front sway bar mount question

So I'm reviving the this thread. I tried to install my Futofab SR/KA sway bar and it doesn't not fit. It makes contact with the cross member. Not happy about this at all. Does anyone know of another company that makes them for a SR swap? I don't want to modify it by welding anything on my frame rai...

Re: Old GT3 car

Josh,
My sister had a Geo Tracker the same color.

She named it "Barnie", just saying :lol: .

Honestly I like the color. My 2nd car was a '61 VW bug that we painted the early Dodge Challenger color "Plum Crazy", just a shade or 2 lighter.

Re: WTB: Datsun 510 Rear Door Handles

If you have the original rear handles the parts needed for the conversion can be pulled off them and installed on modified front handles. FutoFab has front door handles for $34.95/pair +S&H.

Re: Need recommendations for 195/50/15 tires

Go to one of the online tire shops and search by size. Look around, you can buy them for $50 to $200+ each. It depends on what your needs are and what fits those needs the best. Performance tires generally are more expensive, have higher grip levels and wear out faster. Cheap tires are generally all...

Re: CV Failure

Lou, I'll see you and the guys at the Mitty. Look for me in the paddock. I'll be racing the 510 that Todd Walrich started and I finished and raced at the 2017 SCCA Runoffs. It is the last 510 to race at the Runoffs. Looks like the 510 field will be good. Jeff Worth is planning to bring his red, whit...

Re: 1971 Datsun 510 sedan track race parts car

Paul & Demo243, I have roadraced in New England with SCCA since '87. This car or the name on it I don't recall. The NARRC (North Atlantic Road Racing Championship) sticker is from an SCCA Regional series that was quite popular in its day, but has recently gone defunct. The images you took do not sho...

Re: Air Conditioning for 72 4 dr. w/vg30?

There is a universal heat and AC combined unit called the Hurricane. These are used in hot rods and resto-mods. It is compact at 11" tall x 8.5" deep x 11.5" wide

I plan to take a hard look at this uint for my 66 V520.

Re: Narrowing rear control arms

Jeff, how would having Byron's brackets affect the use of your system? We will know more when the prototypes are done. I have Byron's brackets in my car. Raising the pivot should help with anti-squat but gotta check and see what it does to toe change. Jeff, With your design, toe can be easily chang...

Re: FutoFab has 2d Quarter Panels

Very good, what is the skinny on "It is unknown when more will be available" ? The original quarter panels were made with defective tooling, creating a flaw in the rear 6" of the "super sonic line". It was just over 2 years ago when we shipped them a corrected quarter panel so they could rework the...
