Congrats dude, that is so cool that he came home in a 510. I was almost born in my parents 1956 vw beetle (no datsun 510 though!)

^Thats bad ass! Yeah I have a step daughter and I told her to only reason I wanted to have another kid around is so when I die she has to fight with someone to get all my cool shit :)

So raced again on Friday! Not to may laps since we had a full event. I think I did 9 or 10 laps. Managed to pull off second in RWD, a seasoned racer just traded in two cars to buy a basically new Porsche, mid engine RWD running R888's he had me by a few 10ths.... Next time. I had a blast racing thats for sure! I think I'm going to go with R888's hopefully by the august race. That and I want a better drivers seat. Those two things and I would be so happy!
I'm starting to get quite the trophy collection! 3 first place 3 second place and 3 third place (plaque on the wall not seen in photo)

More go fast goodies! Had T3 coilovers installed on my car. They use Koni inserts, which only dampen on rebound. After talking with a good buddy who tears it up in his 510 I ditched them for some non adjustable standard shocks (dampen both ways) Can't wait to test them out tomorrow at the track. I did a nice rip around the industrial park (my testing area) and WOW! Just getting rid of the sag under hard acceleration is SO SO nice! The dampening felt much better as well. It will be fun to try them on the track tomorrow. Of coarse it's supposed to rain..... Why after weeks of dry does it have to start raining tomorrow!!!!! Any ways a few pics for you guys.

My test run in the dry went well. But of coarse it poured down rain. The new shocks make it throttle oversteer a lot more. I guess my problem is that I need to maybe change my setup to handle better in the rain since that seems to be what I end up racing in. haha So if I want to set it up to run better in the rain I think I need to go with softer springs all around. The throttle today was like a understeer oversteer switch. At least thats my guess. What do you guys think?

Sorry Mat I don't like selling datto racing parts :)
