Re: 2018 Summer Drive

Where has the time gone......here are some more of Spencer's wagon, from an Enduro Slalom we all did together in 2006. Derick, James, me, and Spencer. I was sorting some pictures out and found this in my picture files. This would have been one of the last slaloms to be held at the small course track...

Re: Swift springs

500 up front would be an extreme to say the least. Most of us on the coast run 300/inch/lbs up front and anywhere from 900 to 1,200 at the rear, as the spring is inboard from the wheel. The most we ran was 350 up front for true road racing. I run 300# in my 280ZX struts, but, you need to understand ...

Re: 2018 Summer Drive

Morning World! Just got back from a week of camping in the mountains, gorgeous weather. Next weekend looks to be good so far, predicted to be 27C. in Princeton. Goes without saying to make sure cooling system is all good, we do have a good climb on the way back. As we head to weeks end I will post u...

Re: FS: 1972 Datsun 510 2 door Turbo

Hey Matt, I know this was a decision that was likely hard but life does move on! Know this...That day we did a drive up the Duffy Lake, and you asked me if you were holding me up.....Like Hell you were...you had tons of torque that actually made me work at staying with you other than the tightest co...

Re: Pilkington Windshields - Easy and new Availability

I did check on our last group buy on the Pilkington's, it was 355.00 CDN all in.

Today my currency guy is at 1.3265USD, so that translates to 454.00 CDN and it would be more from the credit card companies.

If there was enough interest here again, I could check with the fellow we dealt with before.

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

That kinda seems to be the norm now, manufacturing moved to Mexico and something got cut in production quality. In a quick search failures are common in a 2-3 year time frame. I know that has been the experience at Specialty also, which is why I have just stuck with conventional. I know also that An...

Re: 2018 Summer Drive

That's all funny, I hope it is not too hot for the drive back. We will be early enough to beat the heat at the beginning. That being said, I think we have all proven our cars are ok at 30+C. after some of our Lytton/Lillooet Drives. So, here's the deal...we hook Alveen to the rear, Dean at the front...

Re: 2018 Summer Drive

I was hoping you would show up! Have you changed your gears? If not...you will be in front and we will push you.... With Norm and I behind you, there will be 520 HP on your bumper, maybe reinforce the mounts.

Re: 15" Riken Mesh wheels for sale

I went across the Border at the crack of dawn yesterday for fuel, saved 28.00 a tankful. I asked the U.S. Border guy and he said I just have to pay a $13.00 USD entry fee. Other than time to go in that seems fairly straight forward. I am going to ask again when I go next, just to see if there is a c...

Re: 2018 Summer Drive

No worries Alveen, this is just a drive for the most part, it is B.C. after all, with it's draconian speeding law. I will just be happy with a cruise UP that has minimal traffic so as to just maintain a steady speed.

Re: 2018 Summer Drive

We should be able to be back by then, specially with an early start from Hope. A lot depends on how much STOP time we do, rally at Manning Lodge...drive up to Lookout for photo op....fuel up for some in Princeton... Google shows 3 hours and 24 minutes to Vancouver, so assume we hit Bromley by 11:00 ...

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

For the most part, I just use a conventional lead acid battery. I do use a battery maintainer on it year round. When I looked at the cost of the Optima batteries, and they do seem to be made not as good as the originals, I just decided to stick with the norm. I get about 5 years out of a battery, th...

Re: 15" Riken Mesh wheels for sale

Thanks, but, That sounds a bit sketchy to me, I want to do it right, don't need any issues at the Border...gas is too cheap to mess up....
