Re: 2022 Drives - Run beyond Hope

Thanks! Many years ago, I was fueling up my car and decided to check my tire pressure. The first thing I ever bought, when I started racing in earnest, was a GOOD tire pressure gauge out of the States. Came with a nice rubber case to protect it. I had set the gauge on the fuel Island and drove away!...

Re: Engine Bay Wiring Help?

Good Morning! A word on the oil gauge...and any gauge for that matter. A gauge is only as good as the ability to actually see it...AND...to look at it. I speak a bit from my racing background, but, during intense canyon carving, you are focusing on the road. The SW gauge has multiple issues. Over ti...

Re: Engine Bay Wiring Help?

Also, while we are looking at that side of the motor...what oil sender/gauge are you going to use? I do not see the factory low oil pressure sender there. In no case at all, use one of those little clear plastic line gauges ( the British loved those), as that too is a recipe for disaster. I personal...

Re: Engine Bay Wiring Help?

Also, on the topic of wiring, our 510's like GOOD grounds! WE also run a small, flexible battery ground wire from the starter bolt on the trans housing to the idler arm bolt, that really helps the engine be grounded.

Re: 2022 Drives - Run beyond Hope

And last, I hope that gives you a sense of the trip and territory we went through. The town of Lytton was burned to the ground last year at this time, cause still unknown, but it was thought that the train may have started it. Lytton has always been the hot spot of Canada, hitting 49 C ( 120 F.) las...

Re: The Bronze - '69er Resto Project and continuing build-up.

I second that !

I learned that back in Solo School days, so much better NOT to fight the car for traction issues and you learn to be SMOOTH!

I hope to blast out and watch.

Re: 2022 Drives - Run beyond Hope

Afternoon World. As I sling shotted past Cliff, I knew I was heading into a tight right hand sweeper, diving down to one of 3 hairpins corners where the signs mean what they say. I felt the ABS on the G35 kick in for a fraction of a second, telling me I was at the limit of my now older Yokohama tire...

Re: 2022 Drives - Run beyond Hope

Morning World! Glad you got it all figured out Byron...I knew you would love those tires! They are the REAL DEAL!!!!! Sorry you can't make it Alveen, next time.

Re: 2022 Drives - Run beyond Hope

Yes he did, I thought why let the tires sit in my basement for a year! Gave him a bit of a break. Glad to hear they work well, I am so disappointed still! I went to fuel up the G35 today and my local Chevron must have been having some issue???? as they sold 94 octane for the same as regular. Thought...
