Re: 71 1200 Project ( Picture intense)

More than welcome, glad it has gone to a good home. 69 HP is just fine, our drives are about MOMENTUM......so once we are up to speed...we just never slow.....so, that is why your are working on that great suspension...Brakes last me FOREVER...as I never use them. Why would you, they just slow you d...

Re: 71 1200 Project ( Picture intense)

Thanks for the beer!

Powerbench has promised to have the car ready for next summer, so he has signed up for the 7th position on the starting grid for our drives.

That green should just "POP" in the sunlight, looks good.

The punch-up on 104th was gone when I got back there.

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

So, on Friday I go to fire the car up to get the oil warm for an oil change. I hit the key and then realize my pyro displays are out...The battery is completely DEAD. What the hell, I am haunted by this issue again? I go to the trunk and check connections. I grab my battery maintainer alligators cli...

Re: wipe your face gas cars!

I wonder at what point you will have to take a medical and some sort of training to withstand the brutal G-force of acceleration.....before you buy these cars?! I can see it now in the Tesla accessory rack; 1- U.S.A.F. Certified 10G suit, get yours now for the low, low price of $6,000.00. Be the fir...

Re: LSD Break Away Touque...??

I do not like "drifting" either, I want the rear end of the car as planted as possible, I am no hero. No Tanner Faust here. It's one thing at Solo to get a controlled slide going within reason, but, at our 70-80 MPH high speed corners, that are not smooth, we really do not want a car that ...

Re: LSD Break Away Touque...??

Personally, I want my diff to be locked up at the lower end when I jump on it. Think of our last drive, on the way back on the prairie, where we got those kinda hair pin turns and very tight sweepers, that is where we want the rear to be well planted and BOTH wheels doing the driving. And if you do ...

I can add that my L20B truck exhaust, with turbo and waste gate weighed 19 lbs.

Re: 1971 2 Door, L16 --> 2.1 Long Rod --> SR20VE

Andy at Specialty uses a torque plate for all our engines. It's mimicking the head bolt distortion, upon boring, keeps those cylinders nice and round and hence good piston ring seal.

Re: 71 1200 Project ( Picture intense)

PM me your phone number and address, then we can key up a meet. I leave work at 2:30 most days or on a weekend. If a six pack of Sleemans fell into my hands that would be more than great. Rooting through the Archives is always fun, I could have saved Indiana Jones a lot of trouble as the Ark is in A...

Re: 71 1200 Project ( Picture intense)

I donned my pith helmet and Blazo lantern today, descending into the Bert Vorgon Archives. After moving 72 boxes, finding things I did not know I had, I came upon the suspect box. Sure enough, right at the bottom, under an original Nissan Competition catalog, was the 1200 Factory Chassis and Body ma...

Re: Howdy, I own a Datsun 140z

YES, welcome to the site. I loved the B210, as we had a company here who used to rent them for 35.00 for the weekend, UNLIMITED milage, I used them to go EVERYWHERE.

Re: 71 1200 Project ( Picture intense)

I will root through my stuff tomorrow at work, buried up stars somewhere. Keep you posted. Car looks good, love the green! My first ride ever in a truly high power to weight ration was in Andy's 1200 with the Colt turbo charged motor in it. At the time (70's) likely made close to 300Hp, beyond scary...

Re: 71 1200 Project ( Picture intense)

Could you use/want some factory manuals, I think I have some in the Vorgon archives, rather you have them than they have another birthday in a box.
