Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

Put my new O2 sensor in today. Painted rear brake calipers last week. Just have to purge methanol and test the system and the car should be ready roll. New Yokohama 048's mounted, nice and sticky again.

Re: 510 Day - Byron's place in Maple Ridge

I will try to be there, likely shakedown drive for sure. Still have to purge methanol system, I hate that job. Got my O2 sensor in this morning. Lets hope the weather co-operates.

Knox Mountain Hillclimb 2018

As we are one month away from the Hillclimb, I thought I would just throw this out there. I am planning to drive up there for the Saturday in my G35 and do my usual meet and greet, hike the hill, lunch on the hill, back down, say hi again and drive back to Vancouver. Weather will be looked at as we ...

Re: 15x6.5 +15 or 15x7 0 offset?

They were 13 " x 20" tall by 9.5 inches wide, with the cantilever sidewall, super stick at the time. Likely moved more than todays tires in reality, just thought I would mention it as something to be aware off, you never know.

Re: 15x6.5 +15 or 15x7 0 offset?

Just a word of caution with the tire so close to the strut. If you are cornering hard, keep an eye on the sidewall at that point. Even when I ran race slicks with a finger width of clearance, the tire deflection had the tire hitting the strut. And that was with a cantilever tire with rock hard sidew...

Re: 15" Riken Mesh wheels for sale

Sorry, I should have put that on there. They are 7" and a 205/50 tire is the best combo IMHO.

I am sure they are ZERO offset but can check that next week for sure as they are at work. I do have the axel caps for them also.

Re: 2.3L of fun

Most I ever did was 140 MPH through the canyon with the Malcinator, that was beyond stupidly fast in a 510, and the car, even with my air dam was really starting to get "floaty"

Re: 2.3L of fun

I did have a transmission once with that .759, hated it for racing ( hillclimbs) Even with 20" tall race tires and the revs up there, when I would go to 5th at the hillclimb, the car just laid down, felt like a wet dish rag. That 5th gear set up is only if you really want and can pull some top ...
