Re: "Hey" my daily driven race car!

I had an 82' SR5 too and it was just fine in the steering dept. I had that car slammed, with again the same 510 springs in the front and higher rate in back, with proper travel, wow did that car handle well. that 3TC 1800 motor was really quite awesome, I put 300,000 k on that thing and it never mis...

Re: "Hey" my daily driven race car!

I would have given anything for power steering when I was racing! 9.5" x 2" of rubber contact on the road was a major arm work out to say the least, specially coupled with tons of castor. My AE86 was one of the best steering cars I have driven, not over boosted and a good bit of "force feedback" thr...

Re: Newsletters from the 510 Club of B.C. 1991-2011

Funny, one of my lists from 2006...has you at #44, Art at #80, me at #24.

Glad to know there is a complete set for posterity.

I did find the futuristic story that I was able to scan with OCR, so now I just need to tidy it up. It will be interesting to see what people think on this go-round.

Re: New swap-4G63T

If that waste gate turns out to be a pain in the ass, The Turbonetics ones are great..ZERO issues and well designed. That mounting looks "standard". http://www.turboneticsinc.com/performance/products/wastegates/evolution-wastegate You can see the "heat sink" for the valve stem and the diaphragm body...

Re: Newsletters from the 510 Club of B.C. 1991-2011

Speaking of ads, I opened up my "steamer" trunk with my collection of books and comics and magazines. I have quite a stack of LIFE magazines from the 50's and 60's, great car ads in there. I found another two binders of early newsletters so will have to go back through the stacks and see if I can fi...

Re: snow day

I really miss going out in my GTS Corolla. I would put 3 bags of soda ash over that right wheel, full tank of fuel, REAL snow tires...I went everywhere in that thing. Remember that big snow storm in the 90's, I drove to Specialty in New West in 1-2 feet is snow, did all the hills in New West at Andy...

Re: snow day

"NOT I !" said the little Red 510..... I shoveled my sidewalk, the neighbors on each side, plus the 94 year old lady's next door to me, back driveway, for when the care worker comes. Tired of winter, still snowing here, -4. I parked me vehicles out back as the insane snow plow driver comes down our ...

Re: Newsletters from the 510 Club of B.C. 1991-2011

While I think of it, the newsletters were filled with wonderful cartoons, some of which were by our very own local artist, Craig Ainscough, who also graced the pages of Road & Track magazine. He captured the essence of our club in some classic one, the poor Ferrari who got it's doors blown off at Mi...

Re: Newsletters from the 510 Club of B.C. 1991-2011

Some fun stuff. Don Nimi's ad for when he sold his first race car. Interesting page of ad's showing Pat Robert's selling Tracey's road race 510, that is now in the possession of Rob France and may see street duty one day. Also Georges Kreuzkamp selling his 510 race car, which lives to this day. Geor...

Here is Gary and Jason Koehn's fleet. Gary's car will be the focal point of my "science fiction" story, soon to be posted.
