Re: OCTOBERFAST 2022

Someone did tell me about the newly paved sections on Hwy 3. I‘be been in Northern Alberta all week, got back last night, but I have a ship in the harbour that I’m attending this weekend for work. If the job finished early enough today to get a permit for the 510, this would be a fun drive. We’ll ha...

Re: LSD: Clutch Type vs Helical ATB

Jeffball, out of curiosity - what is the break away torque set at on your diff? I run a precision gear LSD in an R180. Mine is set at 42lbs break away. When I was running the Wolf Creek CV set up, it was horribly noisy due to the play in the CV set up. Oddly, I put good ole U joints back in (half sh...

Blue 510 Vintage Racer

We’ll, it’s about time to start a thread. This little project started in 2006, but I didn’t know I would one day be the current care taker. Enter a fella whom was introduced to me a few years earlier. This being 2002. Paul wanted to run a 510 in the East African Safari Rally, and run in the vintage ...

Re: The Bronze EFI bits.....

Just catching this thread this morning. We did build a lot of cool things in this era. Rob had his hand in there due to his close proximity to the shop. I did end up buying most of this equipment when that shop closed down, it spent 5 years sitting in a container while I bought a house and built a w...

Re: MISSION ROAD RACE SEPT 17/18

Those vids are great, sounds like the car is really singing a good time. I lost the tach during the race Saturday, but I know I was pushing 7500 at the end of the front straight in 4th in the warm up session when the tach was working.
Thanks Keith

Re: My Brakes Suck!

I would agree that changing the pad material is the first step. Pads need heat and friction to start to work. A rotor that big has significant swept area, compared to what your car came with. I run a really high pedal ration Tilton box on my “street” car, due to that I need both legs, one arm and my...

Re: 2019 Langley Good Times Cruise in

I was so busy on the race car, that I forgot about the event!
And I had Glen with me, so that’s 2 510’s that would have been there…
Thanks for the photos, guy. Good to see Dean still has his car.

Re: Swamp thing, from drift car to Endure car

Are those photos taken at the Ridge?
I’d like to drive that track one day. I’ve heard the elevation changes are pretty cool. But you are blessed to have two good tracks near you as SIR is also a great track.
Car looks awesome.

Re: Swamp thing, from drift car to Endure car

All going well, I have races on both the 17th and 18th locally. I could actually finish up my novice license and get my full senior license by the end of the weekend.
I should start a thread, we can stay in touch here on our efforts.
Car looks great, Jeff. I really like the stripes you added.
