Re: Just for Fun

I actually was out in Fort Langley over the summer, checked some of the shops, nobody is really buying, either consumer or store. I talked to one of the owners, people here of course watching their money as things to just get through a day are so expensive. That one BIG antique store is filled with ...

Just for Fun

As I have now moved a TON of stuff into my basement, that I had stored at work for the last 35+ years, I run into things that NEED TO GO. Many, Many years ago my company sold silver brazing alloys and other precious metals related welding products, which put me into contact with lots of sales people...

Re: OCTOBERFAST 2018

Lets hope the weather is good ! Jeez has it been wet and cool, I actually turned the furnace on the other day to take the dampness off the place in the morning.

Mike, do you have the HID lights? I just put some new, higher output bulbs in mine, I will let you know if it was worth it.

Re: Nissan Bluebird Coupe (JCCA Race Car)

Check the thickness of the housing, if it is thicker than what was in there it is the higher volume water pump, which would be a bonus!

Re: Roll the dice

I could check with Campbell to see who he has pulling his frame on his Pontiac Firebird, after his crash at Knox.

Or, I'm sure Tyson knows someone who still has a frame jig.

Re: R160 Diff ID

Depends.....That was stock gearing in our 510's.

From a pure performance standpoint, depending on HP and torque, it would be quite lame.

With what you are re-building I would be shooting for a much "shorter" gear to really help acceleration, 4:11, 4:3, etc.

Re: Roll the dice

Maybe you could talk to Tyson, strike a price with ICBC and make up the diff with Tyson...IF...you value the wagon to be kept.

I dealt directly with Tyson with my G35, worked out well.

Re: Bike rides

Thanks for posting those up, cool you did that! We run basically the same Fox shock up front, love mine, so nice to tune it to trail type. I have not done much riding lately, did get out last week week for a ride with my son. Trails here have changed to more flowy type now, stunts are not as common,...

Re: OCTOBERFAST 2018

Wow, I am kinda shocked at our instant winter type weather, hoping we get a break in October for our drive. Matt and I snuck out yesterday for a quick mountain bike ride between rain cells.
At least the campfire ban has been rescinded, still going to camp a few more times before the snow flys.

Re: "83 280ZX close ratio box and 3:90 differential

If it was me, my last word...15" tires are kinda tall from what our 510's came with, they are going to be 23.5" or so tall. If you have a line on a 4:11, you will really benefit from that, Guaranteed. Unless you spend all day, 5 days a week, at 70 MPH on the freeway, you will enjoy the slightly shor...
