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....

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

Yesterday I fired the 510 up, both to check the battery and to keep the cam oiled. It lit right off so that was good, specially after last years fiasco with what turned out to be a bad battery cell. As we have a good drive planned on July 21st I am going to take the car for a bit of a small run befo...

Re: 2018 Summer Drive

Lets put the July 21st day as the drive to Bromley Rock Park.

I have a new idea for an August drive but will wait a bit longer before throwing that route out there.

Re: 2018 Summer Drive

Sounds good Matt, just keep an eye on this post as we head into July.

Just re-discovered a route that we sure are going to do before the snows fly. Nirvana awaits!
