Sam has an L motor in his car. Just gotta go front sump. Ain't no thing! haha :)

Yes more brakes, more power more more! I like trying to get 1 upgrade per race. It's fun see what each item does. Next I want to put heim joints for end links on my sway bar. Gotta take a trip to the spares department at work :)

I'd also like to do another alignment at my bro's work. I have an idea I want to try. :)

At the last two autoX's I've had brake issues. My rear brakes were locking up on me, which sucks because I love trail braking. Of coarse it's always hard to decide which route to go... Upgrade or replace with stock... Well of coarse I decided to upgrade with a DP Racing pedal box I picked up years and years ago. The installation went alright. The studs for the master are imperial which I hate, also the master cylinder adapter fittings. Those I had to re tap so my brake lines would fit since the 510 uses M10x1.0 I machined a backing plate to spread the load. Here are some pictures of the project. I hate how the brake lines look but until I pull the motor they are going to stay like this.

Did you take a photo of the balance bar arrangement at the pedal itself on the inside?

I'd be curious. I just did a M/C replacement ion my brothers car this weekend and cringed at the though of installing a cheap Chinese made unit that i absolutely do not trust - given the track record that these have. But the Raybestos sold unit is the only one I could find.

Thanks Jeff.

Here you go buddy!

The pedals are from DP racing about half way down this page. http://www.dpracing.co/brakes


Here is the balance bar. I haven't installed the remote knob yet. Working on a new "radio" bezel for the dash. Gotta make it two piece so I can 3D print it at work.

Hey Jeff

Can you measure from the firewall forward to when the steering link angles over to the crossmember. I think this would give me a good idea if your set up would clear my DP.

No big hurry, just next time your getting dirty.

Me and Sam installed some Tomei cams that Clayton gave me. Kind of a bitch to put in. They delete the oil pressure intake cam timing advance. They pre advance the intake timing which makes it a tough because all of a sudden the cam lobes aren't on the low sides. We got it though! Over all the power feels way better and it sounds like it has sidedrafts on it. I also ordered a Nissan cap and rotor. little by little this 510 is becoming a beast!
